Incredible scale, history and exacting standards come together in this generous three bedroom with three full and one half bath fit for diplomats, celebrities and families alike. Twenty-four hour staff including full-time doorman, live-in superintendent and porters provide unrivaled service.

Enter into a large foyer and be led into the ballroom-like living room with its high ceilings, decorative fireplace, huge windows and western exposure with incredible light pouring in throughout the day. Host events or intimate gatherings and make a seamless transition into your adjacent formal dining room large enough to comfortably seat twelve.
Chef's will delight in the perfectly appointed separate eat-in kitchen with custom cabinets, stone counters and stainless steel integrated appliances.
An enormous master suite with another decorative fireplace is so big will make you think you've moved to the suburbs. The five piece master bath features side by side vanity, separate soaking tub and shower. An enormous walk-in closet is the piece de resistance. The second and third bedrooms are both extremely generous.
The Apthorp is to New York City what the Pitti Palace is to Florence; a breathtaking icon steeped in architectural history and magnificent details. One of the few buildings in the city to sit on an entire city block, from 78th to 79th and Broadway to West End, it was added to the National Register of Historical Places in 1978. A large landscaped courtyard enables residents to drive through the porte-cochere, passed the guardhouse, and be dropped off inside the park-like privacy unlike any other residence in the city.
This is a turnkey home ready for you to bring your suitcase.
