Distinguished full floor residence perched on the 9th floor of one of Fifth Avenue's most prestigious white-glove cooperatives. This extraordinary 14-room, 6-bedroom apartment offers grand proportions enhanced by a gracious layout spanning over 5500 square feet. This spectacular prewar apartment has 55-feet fronting Central Park and features soaring 10'6" foot ceilings, original herringbone flooring, and impressive original plaster moldings throughout. Sunlight streams in through 27 oversized windows spanning all four exposures.
A private elevator landing opens into the main gallery, which has a deep coat closet and is bathed in natural light from the adjoining living room, library, and formal dining room. The gallery has a doublewide entryway that perfectly captures Central Park through the oversized living room windows. The impressive Northwest corner 33' x 18'6" living room has a wood-burning fireplace and charming views of the sailboats in the Central Park Conservatory pond. Also located off the gallery and living room is the wood-paneled North facing library complete with a wood-burning fireplace and custom built-ins. The grand formal dining room is ideally located off both the living room and gallery for seamless entertaining; this room enjoys three exposures - South, East & West capturing the Central Park South skyline, townhouse views and direct Park exposure. Conveniently next to the dining room is the windowed butler's pantry complete with a sink, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer, linen & silver drawers, and ample storage. The sunny South-facing windowed eat-in-kitchen opens off the pantry; this room features a large double sink, a 6-burner & two griddle Garland range with two full side-by ovens underneath. Floor-to-ceiling storage and an additional refrigerator/freezer complete this spacious room. Also off the kitchen is the laundry room featuring a stacked washer/dryer, soaking sink and more storage; this room also connects back to the bedroom wing of the apartment.
The private wing of the apartment is discretely located off the gallery with an elegant corridor that is perfect for hanging artwork. The North-facing luxurious 16' x 24' double master bedroom also has a wood-burning fireplace and three generous closets, one of which is a walk-in. The oversized 13'8" x 6'6" windowed marble master bathroom features a stall/shower, bidet and vanity. There are five additional bedrooms, the first of which also faces North and currently connects to the master bedroom through the master bathroom creating a master suite, but with its own en-suite bathroom and closets it can easily be converted back into a bedroom. Two additional large corner bedrooms occupy the East portion of the private wing; each of these oversized bedrooms have dual exposures that capture townhouse views over to Madison Avenue. These bedrooms also have abundant closet space and individual bathrooms. The remaining two bedrooms face South and one has oblique Park views. Five additional closets, one of which is cedar, complete this wing.
