Not unlike a rare gem that dazzles its beholder, this magnificent home is set apart from the rest of the current offerings by its prewar provenance, offering style, elegance and beauty in every room.
Entering the apartment from the private elevator landing, one immediately feels the special qualities found in this full-floor prewar Condominium on Fifth Avenue, built by J.E.R Carpenter in 1925.
The fabulous entertaining space includes a huge livingroom with woodburning fireplace, a very generous sized formal dining room with wood burning fireplace and a lush, English Pine paneled library.. The rooms afford stunning views of Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum through oversized windows. Tastefully renovated with magnificent moldings and great architectural detail, the feeling one gets is that of a glamorous and exquisite Parisian salon.
The master bedroom suite has the third wood-burning fireplace, two marble baths and abundant closet space. The two additional bedrooms are very generous in size, each with an ensuite marble bath.
A super-sized eat=in kitchen with laundry room and a staff room with bath also contains a home office/exercise room.
The apartment is in mint , move-in condition, is light and bright throughout and also features a 4 zone conditioning system, a sound system, herringbone floors and high ceilings. Two very large storage rooms are an added bonus. The building is pet friendly. 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 !
