A truly grand, spectacular residence, finished to perfection and of the highest caliber, is now available in one of the most sought-after buildings on the Upper East Side. 3C at the prestigious 885 Park Avenue is a meticulously-designed gem and sprawling oasis, bathed in natural light from oversized windows on 4 exposures.
Entering into a semi-private landing, luxury envelopes you with an elegant gallery hall that is 25’2” long by 9’10” wide, featuring generous wall space for art and a built-in bar with sink & wine fridge for serving cocktails. Gorgeous herringbone-patterned wood floors & dramatic recessed ceilings illuminated by cove lighting continue into the expansive living room, centered by a sleek wood-burning fireplace, flanked by walls of built-ins.
Entertain effortlessly, enjoying a seamless flow from the enormous living area across the gallery to the gracious dining room, which can also be used as a den. The chef’s kitchen equipped with the finest appointments for the gourmand also has a large breakfast area for dining, as well as a peninsula counter & center island for food prep and hors d’oeuvres. A Viking 6-burner stove with grill, Sub-Zero refrigerator & 2 Miele dishwashers complete the culinary experience. Adjoining the kitchen on either side is a windowed bonus room with closets and full laundry room with a huge Maytag industrial-strength washer & dryer, along with a powder room, full bath, and staff room/office.
Bedrooms are very well-proportioned. The primary suite is a tranquil retreat with beamed ceilings, a huge custom-fitted walk-in closet and beautiful his & her marble baths. Also on the south side off the living room is a handsome wood-paneled library with wood ceiling beams and a built-in window seat. Two additional bedrooms are equally bright and inviting, both with custom built-ins and ample closets, with a Jack & Jill marble bath between.
