Mint Full Floor Park Avenue PH Occupying the entire top floor of a white glove prewar building at Park Avenue and 74th Street, this exceptional penthouse has undergone a meticulous four year renovation with no expense spared.
Sleek, sprawling and spectacular in every way, this full-floor sundrenched penthouse is an entertaining enthusiast's dream, with generously-proportioned rooms and approximately 3000 square feet of landscaped private terraces.
A private elevator landing opens into an elegant square gallery leading to an extraordinary 75-foot sweep of entertainment space incorporating a library, living room, formal dining room and eat in kitchen, all overlooking the magnificent landscaped terraces and the majestic Candela buildings of Park Avenue. Natural light streams in through 37 large custom picture windows by Sorpetaler benefiting from all four exposures. The artfully designed living spaces are glamourized by 10'5" soaring ceilings, gorgeous white oak and Italian Limestone flooring, mahogany doors, bronze moldings, Nanz hardware, recessed Lux lighting and radiant heated floors in all bathrooms. A carefully chosen list of the finest modern finishes, appliances and systems were captured by this extensive renovation. The art collector can showcase their favorite works on an abundance of excellent wall space that can accommodate even the heaviest pieces, in the gallery and all major rooms.
Nestled between the living room and formal dining room is a temperature-controlled wine room for 400 bottles, sink and ice maker. Beyond the dining room is the eat-in chef's kitchen with a 60" dual fuel Wolfe stove with 4 burners, French cooktop and grill, 2 Miele dishwashers, 2 sinks, granite countertops, and plentiful storage space that includes pull-out cabinetry for pots and pans. The kitchen has a 6-foot island with bar seating for 4 plus a bench and banquette seating for up to 7 overlooking the breakfast area of the terrace.
In the southeast wing of the penthouse, the 850-square-foot master suite indulges you with a large bedroom, lovely sitting area with great light and open city views, enormous his and hers walk-in closets, and en-suite spa with a roomy limestone tub, double sinks and huge shower with oversized showerhead. In the northeast wing, three additional en-suite bedrooms all enjoy wonderful views of the landscaped terraces and have ample closets. Comfort is enhanced with a large soundproofed playroom/TV room, which can easily be converted to a fifth bedroom. There is an adjacent laundry room with sink, storage and Miele washer/dryer.
Wired for the next generation, the Penthouse features a Lutron lighting system, state-of-the-art Honeywell alarm system, speakers in all rooms that run off Sonos and are IPad compatible, and an in-wall monitoring system that lets you hear and communicate between bedrooms. Six-zone AC can be controlled remotely from a computer/phone. Humidification and electric heat work through the AC system for optimal efficiency.
The breathtaking wraparound terrace has been fully renovated with limestone pavers and extensive landscaping. Views from the terraces include Central Park and many of the iconic nearby prewar cooperatives that line Park Avenue.
Built in 1925, the white-glove 791 Park Avenue, elaborately designed by George and Edward Blum, has an attentive staff with a 24-hour doorman and live-in super, a newly-refurbished gym, as well as onsite storage. This building is located in one of the most elite sections of Park Avenue between 73rd and 74th Streets, near excellent schools, upscale boutiques, restaurants, art galleries, Madison/Fifth Avenues and Central Park.
