Description

Grand Space and Architecture Sets the Tone for This Historically Significant and One-of-a-kind 3 BR / 3.5 BATH Home A grand example of architectural elegance, this rare and stunning residence occupies the entire twelfth floor of one of Manhattan’s most coveted Fifth Avenue residential buildings. Located in the heart of the Upper East Side, this residence is graced with timeless beauty and expansive views of the gorgeous Metropolitan Museum of Art and the beautiful fountains and landscaping of the David Koch Plaza. It also enjoys magnificent views of the Central Park South skyline and the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir enveloped by the Park’s natural beauty.

Enter via your own private elevator landing that opens into an impressively scaled central gallery. True to the original details of the Beaux-Arts architecture imagined by Whitney Warren and Charles D. Wetmore, feelings of Parisian grandeur are evoked from the oversized windows and exceptionally high ceilings reaching roughly 10’ throughout the entire home. The expansive South-facing living room is enriched by herringbone oak floors and 2 dramatic windows overlooking the stunning facade of the Met and the impressive Central Park South skyline.

Graciously adjoining the living room is a Southwest corner library adorned with sophisticated Tudor woodwork and paneled walls, oversized windows, built-in bookcases, and a cozy wood-burning fireplace that instills a feeling of comfort and security. The functional design of this compelling room with Southern and Western exposures directly overlook the Museum’s iconic steps and draws your attention to the gorgeous natural surrounding areas of the Reservoir and Central Park. The elegant dining room easily accommodates to one’s lifestyle with grace and comfort, perfect for entertaining on a grand scale.

With direct access from the central gallery and the kitchen, this expansive dining room was designed with an exquisite attention to detail. From the moment you walk in, you are welcomed by 3 magnificant Palladian arch windows that provide one-of-a-kind vistas of Central Park and the Reservoir. Nestled in between the Northwestern-facing windows, the second wood-burning fireplace features an intricately-designed mantel with a chic marble finish.

The encompassing herringbone oak floors of the dining room lead straight to a spacious eat-in kitchen. The windowed gourmet kitchen is well-equipped with a center island, top-of-the-line appliances throughout, and plenty of storage space provided by the built-in cabinets. Completing the East wing of the house is a laundry area, a separate pantry room that sensibly holds the apartment’s central air conditioning equipment, and an additional service elevator at your convenience.

The private bedroom wing off the gallery comfortably houses 3 large bedrooms. The luxurious South and East-facing master suite has a pleasant and sunny outlook onto the tree-lined surroundings of 83rd Street and Fifth Avenue. It also holds the third and final wood-burning fireplace of the apartment.

The corner master features a roomy walk-in closet with built-in dressers/drawers and an enormous dressing room. Adjoining the dressing room is an en suite marble bathroom with a double vanity sink. The second and third East-facing bedrooms both feature their own private bathrooms and additional closets. Other features include an attractive powder room and a clandestine wet bar bordering the living room.

The countless architectural integrity and floor plan of this stunning apartment aptly reveal the greatness of pre-war cooperative residences to the highest echelon. Built in 1925, 1020 Fifth Avenue is a white-glove, full-service building that is one of the most sought-after and prestigious addresses on Fifth Avenue. Designed by Warren & Wetmore, the main architects of Grand Central Terminal, this coveted pre-war building has a unique fenestration pattern of oversized windows that hints at its unusual and dramatic apartment layouts.
