Description

JUST LISTED! A gorgeous and gloriously renovated 7 into 6 room 2-bedroom home of glorious scale and proportions in an illustrious full-service prewar cooperative on Fifth Avenue. Equally ideal as a spacious full-time residence or lavish pied-a-terre, Residence 5C at 1016 Fifth Avenue boasts a stately living room, an oversized formal dining room/parlor, an immaculate oversized windowed eat-in kitchen with a double exposure, a beautifully appointed bar space, a sexy den, two gracious bedrooms each with an en-suite bathroom as well as two powder rooms, one to serve the entertaining spaces and one to serve the grand dining kitchen.

Enter into an elegant foyer wrapped in elegant glazed plaster wainscoting and intricate crown molding above. Luxuriate in a sprawling living room with hardwood herringbone floors, fabulous walls on which to display your art collection, a wood-burning marble fireplace and massive 12-over-12 windows overlooking the delightful treetops along East 83rd Street.

There is a handsome walnut custom built-in for additional display and storage, and glamorous Venetian plastered ceiling plates which shimmer in the recessed cove lighting which surrounds them.

To the South, there is a large formal dining room currently furnished as a parlor, perfect for expanded entertaining or to host dinner parties or holiday gatherings of scale. For those who prefer a more relaxed setting in which to dine, the huge triple-windowed dining kitchen is wired for sound and offers a large custom center island providing seating for six.

Exposed both East and West, the kitchen is dressed in custom white cabinetry with mirror-panel faces and brushed hardware, deep grey quartz countertops, a glass-tiled backsplash and antiqued porcelain-tiled floors. There is a full suite of stainless steel appliances including a Miele gas range with self-venting Viking hood, a wall-mounted oven and microwave, a Liebherr Premium refrigerator/freezer with triple freezer draw and ice maker as well as a full-sized dishwasher by Bosch. In further service of those who entertain, there is a customized bar/pantry just off the kitchen with a Liebherr Vinidor subcounter wine refrigerator as well as a windowed powder room.

The bedrooms are serenely situated in the separate West wing of the home which additionally features a marvelous central den for watching TV or unwinding from your day.

At the far end of the hall, a private and expansive primary suite has fantastic closets and storage space with a sizable dressing room, a walk-in closet and additional custom built-ins. The primary bedroom is serviced by an en-suite bathroom with neutral marble from floor-to-ceiling, an oversized marble vanity, a glass-enclosed stall shower and excellent built-in storage throughout. The second bedroom easily accommodates a king-size bed and has two dedicated closets as well as a windowed en-suite marble bathroom with a Kohler Tea-for-Two deep soaking tub behind a glass enclosure.

Additional features of this home include a second powder room off of the gallery, beautiful hardwood floors and recessed lighting on dimmers throughout, a washer/dryer and through-wall air conditioning.

Completed in 1926, 1016 Fifth Avenue is a majestic prewar full-service cooperative with a distinctly ornate marble lobby attended by a full-time doorman.

There is a live-in resident manager, and building amenities include a well-equipped fitness center, private storage and bicycle storage. Central Park is at your doorstep alongside all the city's finest museums and cultural institutions along Museum Mile as well as the vast array of restaurants, shopping and entertainment defining life on the prime Upper East Side.
