In the heart of Manhattan luxury, at the intersection of 72nd Street and 5th Avenue, stands 912 5th Avenue, an elegant pre war white glove coop designed by the architectural firm of Schwartz + Gross.
One accesses apartment 1B through a private entrance off the exquisite marble lobby and enters an expansive foyer with ten foot ceilings and a powder room. The grand layout is designed for comfort, convenience and easy entertaining. To the left, the living room with two oversized parlor windows overlooks the Avenue and the Park beyond. An elegant fireplace is the focal point along the interior wall, with built-in offsetting shelves on either side. The room enjoys a generous gallery-like quality of light and space, large enough to accommodate multiple seating arrangements.
To the right off the foyer, the formal dining room welcomes guests with lacquered cranberry walls, wood paneled shelving and custom millwork, echoing the height of designer aesthetic. This handsome room would also work as a library or a 3rd bedroom.
At the north end of the foyer are French doors leading to the Primary bedroom suite, with four full sized closets and a windowed bathroom with soaking tub. The bedroom easily accommodates a king sized bed with additional space for a seating area or desk by the double Park view windows.
The kitchen is well appointed and banquette seating could be added to create an eat-in-kitchen. Outfitted with custom cabinetry, high-end appliances from Miele, Bosch and Sub Zero as well as a full sized washer and dryer discreetly tucked into a closet near the service entrance. Off the kitchen is the second bedroom with a full en-suite windowed bathroom.
Across 5th Avenue one finds some of Central Park’s finest attractions including the Conservancy Water and it’s iconic model-boats; Pilgram Hill ablaze with Yoshino cherry trees by Spring and a coveted sledding spot by winter; and the splendid performing arts of SummerStage offered free of charge every summer. World famous museums - The Frick , The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Met Breuer – offer diverse art viewing opportunities and local Madison Avenue attractions feature Ralph’s Coffee, Ladurée Tea Salon, The Mark and The Carlyle Hotels – this is one of the best locations to wander the City – every direction holds a new delight.
Built in 1925, the building has 15 floors and 31 apartments. Building amenities include a newly completed gym, private storage, full-time super, doorman and a manned elevator. There is a 2% flip tax payable by the buyer. Pied-à-terre permitted.
