Situated in a prime Fifth Avenue location between The Pierre and Sherry Netherland Hotels in the coveted stretch of Fifth Avenue known as "The Gold Coast", Apartment 12AB at 785 Fifth Avenue offers over 100 feet of rarely available direct Central Park views over the treetops that include the best corner of the park with the pond in Spring, the kaleidoscopic treetops in Fall, and the Wollman Skating Rink in Winter.
12AB is a bright, spacious, corner apartment currently configured as six bedrooms (five bedrooms and a study/bedroom) with four full baths and a powder room. The apartment offers a unique opportunity to own and customize a space with breathtakingly expansive views of Central Park from oversized windows in the living room, library and three bedrooms that face west onto Fifth Avenue. Two north bedrooms have angled Park views and views of Stanford White's iconic Metropolitan Club, and the corner principle bedroom has particularly incredible panoramic west and north views of Central Park.
The living and entertaining spaces have wide entrances and hallways, arched doorways and many bookshelves, giving the apartment charm and intrigue. Additionally, there is a spacious kitchen that offers a professional quality Garland range with two ovens, abundant cabinetry and counter space, and a lovely island with stools. Adjacent to the kitchen is a formal dining room. Of the five bedrooms, the two largest contain roomy, en-suite bathrooms featuring both bathtubs and showers. There is abundant closet space through the apartment, including three walk-in closets as well as a 'night' galley kitchenette at the north end of the apartment.
The Parc V, designed by acclaimed architect Emory Roth and built in 1963, is one of Fifth Avenue's most prestigious white-glove co-operative buildings. Amenities include an exceptional full-service staff, live-in super, fitness center, and parking. Pied a terres are permitted but pets are not. The quintessential location is in close proximity to some of New York's finest restaurants and boutiques including Harry Cipriani and Bergdorf Goodman, among many others.
