Located directly across from The Metropolitan Museum, this elegant 7 room apartment is the perfect opportunity to create a dream Fifth Avenue Home. Off a semi-private landing, one enters into the grand gallery and is immediately met with brilliant light and a view of the Museum. The gallery leads to a large and beautifully proportioned living room with a wood burning fireplace and over sized windows facing the Museum and its newly renovated plaza and fountains. The over sized South facing dining room has ample room for grand entertaining or creating a dining room/den. The adjacent staff rooms and butler's pantry offer a number of configuration options, including combining the staff rooms to create an additional bedroom or den with bathroom, or creating an eat-in kitchen and home office. The south facing eat in kitchen is very large, and easily can be even larger without incorporating a staff room.
In the bedroom wing, the generously sized master suite has lovely bright Museum views, a huge walk-in closet and a windowed bathroom with both a shower and a separate tub. The 2nd bedroom is tranquil and faces east, has two large closets (one of which is cedar) and a bath that could be accessed directly from the bedroom, from the bedroom hall, or both.
The apartment features 10 foot ceilings and rich prewar details throughout including original herringbone floors, moldings and detailed doors.
1016 Fifth Avenue is an elegant white glove prewar cooperative in the heart of Museum Mile. Amenities include full time doormen, live-in resident manager, gym, and a storage bin.
