Magnificent Central Park and New York City views from this extraordinary home on Fifth Avenue at 67th Street.
This elegant 9 room home has all the ingredients to create your own masterpiece. With wall-to-wall windows of gorgeous West, South and East views, every room has brilliant light and open exposures. With one apartment per floor, you enter from a private elevator landing which opens into a large entry gallery. The entertaining rooms all flow from this gallery while the bedrooms are in a separate, private wing. The L-shaped living room has a working fireplace and a lovely terrace that hangs over Central Park. Adjacent to the living room is a beautiful wood paneled library, also with direct park views. Also off the main gallery is a well-proportioned dining room as well as the kitchen, of which there are two large staff rooms, a bathroom and laundry area. A powder room completes the entertaining space.
There are three generous bedrooms – currently two bedrooms were made into a grand primary suite and three bathrooms. The sunny bedrooms have picturesque city views overlooking townhouses to the East. There are beautiful hardwood floors throughout as well as enormous closet space.
This boutique co-op has only 17 apartments, a 24-hour doorman and attended elevators. There is a 2% flip tax, payable by the buyer.
