SPECTACULAR FULL FLOOR HIGH ABOVE FIFTH AVENUE
Ideally situated on Fifth Avenue at the corner of 81st Street, this massive and sprawling 8,360 square foot renovated residence occupies the entire 15th floor of one of Manhattan’s finest full-service prewar cond-op buildings. The apartment enjoys extraordinary views of Central Park and the Manhattan Skyline. Distinguishing features include abundant natural light that streams in throughout the day, from 47 oversized windows, spanning all four exposures, and a dynamic and flexible floor plan that is conducive to grand and sophisticated entertaining, and also to a low-key family life style.
Two sets of elevators open directly into a stunning 36-foot gallery, which leads to a vast 70-foot enfilade of entertainment rooms overlooking Fifth Avenue and Central Park. The impressive 41 x 18-foot living room with six oversized windows is flanked by a handsome wood-paneled library with wood-burning fireplace to the south, and a corner formal dining room and wine cave to the north. Adjacent to the dining room there is an enormous and fully equipped eat-in-kitchen, and a perfectly situated family room with a breakfast area, that all together measure over 600 square feet.
The private Eastern Wing of the apartment accommodates six of the seven bedrooms, each of which has an en-suite bathroom and large closets. The generous primary bedroom is a corner suite that has access to a private sitting room with gas fireplace, and two oversized dressing areas with vast closets and storage space. The seventh bedroom is located immediately off of the library, and could function as a secluded guest suite or a quiet home office.
This impressive and elegant building is perfectly located across the street from Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and is in close proximity to the best shopping and restaurants on Madison Avenue. Designed by renowned architect, Rosario Candela in 1926, 995 Fifth Avenue is a magnificent representation of Georgian architecture, yet also seamlessly incorporates state-of-the-art technology and the finest modern finishes. Amenities include 24-hour doormen, concierge services, a billiards room and a private state-of-the-art health and fitness spa. The building permits ownership by an LLC or a Trust and always has the prettiest and best tended flower bed plantings along Fifth Avenue.
