Stunning Fifth Avenue duplex with magnificent Central Park Views. Truly a rare opportunity to own a triple-mint, turn-key home on two private full floors, overlooking Central Park, in a distinguished Fifth Avenue cooperative. Situated on the southeast corner of 78th Street, this classic pre-war 12 into 10 room home has been meticulously renovated with no stone left unturned. With three exposures to the north, west and east, the apartment floods with natural sunlight and boasts unrivaled open skyline and Central Park views throughout. Enter on the 11th floor onto your private landing where an impressive circular vestibule adorned with beautiful stained glass windows and imported Italian marble floors await. The generously proportioned living room features Parquet de Versailles white oak flooring and two walls of all new solid oak windows which are offset by an elegant wood-burning fireplace framed in a striking Italian carved mantel. The library, mahogany clad with coffered ceilings and custom built-ins, offers a quiet retreat and showcases a uniquely designed curved sliding panel door that leads into the gracious formal dining room which is also accessible through the gallery. A chef's dream, the eat-in kitchen has been masterfully crafted with top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances by Sub-Zero, Wolf and Miele. A beautiful polished brass and oak wood staircase leads to the 12th floor, which is also accessible via elevator. The master suite faces west over the park and offers another wood burning fireplace, walk-in closet and windowed marble bathroom. Radiant heat floors and heated towel rack assures comfort all year round. Completing this level are three additional bedrooms and two full bathrooms. For added convenience, this home features central heating and air, state of the art Lutron lighting and electronic shades system, invisible in wall speakers throughout and full size laundry room.
