CONTRACT SIGNED Rarely available, one of the most elegant 12 room layouts in Manhattan at the legendary San Remo, is now available. Classically and elegantly renovated, this stunning home has three grand entertaining rooms on Central Park; the corner living room, library and stately formal dining room, spanning nearly 65 feet of Park frontage.
Off a private landing, one enters into the foyer and 21 foot gallery, from which beautiful Central Park views are framed through new casement windows. The grand formal dining room is 18 feet by over 22 feet, capacious enough for the most sumptuous entertaining. There are French Doors leading to a small balcony over Central Park, providing the ideal vantage point for the Thanksgiving Day Parade. The library is large yet cozy, and has pocket doors to the living room. The corner living room epitomizes elegant and grand proportions and is a signature of the legendary Emery Roth's talent. With dimensions measuring over 30 feet long by 21 feet wide, with both direct Park views and South Midtown views, this room is luxury defined.
There are four very generous bedrooms, one of which is now used as a den, but could easily be restored to a fourth bedroom. Each bedroom has its own new en- suite bathroom and generous closets. The gorgeous oversized master suite faces South onto tranquil 74th Street, has a luxurious renovated bathroom with double vanity, separate tub and shower and two dressing rooms/walk-in closets.
The large gourmet chef's windowed eat-in kitchen has a vented commercial grade stove with grill, three ovens, two sinks, a center island and fabulous counter and storage space. It is adorned with classic white shaker cabinets and stone countertops, hand stenciled hardwood floors and a very big space for a kitchen table.
Off the bedroom wing, between the kitchen and bedrooms is a spacious laundry room with vented full sized washer and dryer plus extra storage space, and a wonderful windowed office. Between the kitchen and the formal dining room is a staff powder room, 1000 bottle climate controlled wine storage and wet bar. There is also a powder room for guests off the gallery.

Soaring 10 foot ceilings were maintained while installing three zone central air conditioning and Savant smart home system, which includes music in all rooms except the secondary bedrooms. There are four exposures and all 23 windows are new. Rich herringbone and strip hardwood floors were restored throughout; the foyer has a new wood floor with artistic wood inlay. There are over 9 foot mahogany doors with classic brass bullet hinges leading into all entertaining rooms, custom bookshelves and paneling in the library and den and restored stately moldings throughout.
