MAJESTIC MAGNITUDE ON PARK AVENUE This sprawling, sunny 10 room apartment optimizes scale and overflows with traditional prewar grandeur. Enter into the apartment through a private elevator vestibule into a grand and gracious gallery. You immediately recognize the style of renowned architect Rosario Candela: high ceilings, the seven paneled doors opening to the central public rooms with their original bullet hinges and hardware, herringbone floors, and defining crown and base moldings.
The enormous Corner living room on Park Avenue is spectacular. It faces South and East has five large windows offering views across and down the Avenue of trees bursting with pink flowers in spring and center mall with planted gardens and lighted trees during the holidays. Bright sun streams through the windows as it moves East to Southwest morning to evening. The living room has a wood burning fireplace. Adjacent to the living room and off the gallery is the spacious and elegant dining room with two windows facing Park Avenue.
The apartment currently is laid out as a three bedroom with a library/ fourth bedroom with four full baths. The library, master and second bedroom all face south on 95th street, bathed in sunlight.
Off the gallery sharing a private bedroom hall are the master bedroom, second and third bedrooms as well as a walk in cedar closet and dressing room. The rooms are all of generous proportions with windowed baths ensuite and each has large walk-in closets. Two offices can be combined into another bedroom with adjacent bath, accessed via an existing doorway in the private bedroom hall. The closets in this apartment are unrivaled.
The large eat-in kitchen adjoins a full butler's pantry with refrigerator, two nickel sinks and counter. The kitchen has a full size Sub Zero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher and massive Garland 8 burner hooded range with grill and two ovens. The apartment originally had two staff rooms (now offices) and a staff dining room. The staff dining room has become a windowed laundry area with sink.
The apartment has updated electric and is connected to Verizon FiOs wifi, TV and telephone. There is in-wall speaker wiring centered in the library serving the dining room, living room and library.
