Rarely available and situated on one of the prettiest blocks of Park Avenue, this exquisite full-floor luxury pre-war condominium, must be seen to be believed. The layout is exceptional: from the private elevator landing to the 4,184sf of capacious living space: 9 rooms, 5bds/4.5bths, and fabulous open exposures in every direction.
Upon entering, one is greeted by a gracious gallery, and is immediately enchanted by the elegance of the entertaining space. With approximately 50 linear feet of Park Avenue frontage, the over-sized living room and library offer bright western views with very special additional north and south windows. The adjacent formal dining room easily seats twelve and is perfectly positioned off the kitchen. The eat-in open chef's kitchen has been entirely redone with St. Charles cabinetry, 2-inch-thick Calcutta Gold marble center island and counter-tops, 6 burner vented Viking range, 4 Fisher/Paykel dishwashers, Viking fridge, generous storage, and a fantastic dining banquette. An added bonus feature is the service elevator within the kitchen, ideal for any and all deliveries.
The 5 bedrooms are separated from the formal living space and sit in the east wing of the home. The primary bedroom suite has a stunning 5-piece Waterworks marble bath with radiant heated floors, several custom closets (one walk-in) and 3 open City exposures. The other bedrooms are all beautifully and comfortably appointed with custom closets, built-ins, and designer Waterworks bathrooms. There is also an onyx accented powder room.
Additional apartment features include herringbone oak floors, 10' ceilings, Marvin double hung windows, laundry room with vented washer/dryer, and central air conditioning and heat. There are two working gas fireplaces, and the apartment has the latest Crestron system for lighting and entertainment.
The stunning 13-story building was designed by Pickering and Walker in 1912 and was restored and masterfully transformed in 2006 into a luxury boutique condominium by architect Barry Rice. Carefully and creatively executed in harmony with the neighborhood, all 11 residences were designed to maximize space, flow, functionality and privacy. Amenities include full-service staff, live-in Resident Manager, state-of-the-art health club, and private storage units for each owner.
Close to wonderful Eastside restaurants, fabulous shopping, schools, and all forms of transportation (as well as 3 blocks from Central Park), it doesn't get much better than this.
