This magnificent residence is situated in Fifth Avenue's most notable building designed by Rosario Candela. It is a grand-scale apartment with exquisite detail and perfectly proportioned rooms. The entertaining rooms radiate off the gracious entrance gallery, which is accessed by a private elevator vestibule. The thirty-foot living room with wood burning fireplace and eleven and a half foot ceilings has spectacular treetop views of Central Park and the Central Park West skyline. It leads to both the Park-facing library and the impressive formal dining room.
An exceptionally wide bedroom hallway leads to the two master bedrooms along Fifth Avenue. The enormous master bedroom has a large bath, generous closets and a dressing room, which was originally a full second master bath. The large eat-in-kitchen, designed by renowned architect Gwathmey Siegel, includes a breakfast room, laundry room and expansive pantry and storage. A stairway off the kitchen leads up to a suite of three staff bedrooms and a full bath. Other highlights of the apartment include a powder room, a wet-bar off the library, a generous storage room, and through the wall air conditioning. The building permits the installation of central air conditioning.
