A full-service pre-war CONDOMINIUM in a prized, ultra-desirable Fifth Avenue setting? Most believe this is impossible, but indeed this apartment is one of the very few collector-grade full-floor homes fronting Fifth Avenue across from Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Superb proportions, scale, volume, and light feature throughout this immaculately renovated and maintained stylish, elegant home built by J.E.R Carpenter in 1925. The private elevator opens into a private landing that welcomes you to the gracious entry gallery, resplendent with its ornate architectural detailing. A massive living room with a wood-burning fireplace faces West and North and sits alongside a baronial dining room with another wood-burning fireplace, perfectly scaled for lavish entertaining on an elevated level with almost 50 feet of Fifth Avenue frontage. An immaculately appointed hand-carved English Pine paneled library is adjacent and completes the entertaining/living rooms perfectly. Everything has been addressed with the highest quality of craftsmanship and materials. While the interiors are impressive, equally mesmerizing are the stunning views of Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum through oversized windows.
The Primary bedroom suite features a third wood-burning fireplace, two marble bathrooms, and an abundance of closet space. There are two additional generously scaled bedrooms each with an ensuite marble bathroom and significant closet space. An enormous eat-in kitchen with Sub Zero and Viking appliances adjoins a laundry room and a staff room with a bathroom also contains a home office or exercise room.
This fully renovated apartment is in mint, move-in condition - with modern systems such as 4-zone central air conditioning, a sound system - and features herringbone floors and high ceilings throughout. A large storage rooms included in this sale are an added bonus. This pet-friendly building is the only one of its kind in this prime location on the Upper East Side, moments from the best cuisine, culture, and couture that Manhattan can offer.
The apartment is truly one of a kind and presents a very special opportunity for the buyer who is looking for the unique and unusual!
