Description

FIFTH AVE /80th St. - FULL FLOOR CONDOMINIUM

This stunning and impressive full floor 3,400 square foot prewar condominium residence boasts commanding open views over Central Park and the Manhattan skyline. The home occupies the entire twelfth floor which was specifically designed by the developer for grand entertaining.

The massive entertainment rooms have soaring 12+ foot ceilings throughout and the grand 26' x 28' square living room, with wood burning fireplace, takes full advantage of its perch. With multiple oversize west and north-facing windows, it is one of the most extraordinary living rooms ever built on Fifth Avenue. Its corner position commands spectacular views of Central Park, the entire West Side, and Midtown skyline.

The living room also has open northern views over the Metropolitan Museum of Art and north along Fifth Avenue. The entire room is bathed in natural light all day, sunsets at dusk, and twinkling lights in the evening.

A gracious and elegant 18' x 23' corner formal dining room/library with large west-facing windows has an impressive south-facing window with wonderful views down Fifth Avenue to Midtown and all the way south to the Freedom Tower. The dining room opens to the living room for seamless entertaining and flow.

We believe there is a hidden wood burning fireplace in the center of the southern wall of the dining room.

The private east wing of the apartment includes 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The generous primary bedroom suite has three exposures, east, north and south, and may also have a hidden fireplace. All the bedrooms have 10'6" ceiling heights.

Currently there is a large 16' X 11' eat-in kitchen and a separate breakfast area, as well as two staff rooms, and one staff bathroom.

This wing of the home enjoys ample morning sun from the east.

Designed by J.E.R. Carpenter a premier architect of luxury residential high rise buildings in the 1920's, and built in 1926, the elegant and intimate 988 Fifth Avenue is located on the southeast corner of 80th Street and Fifth Avenue, just south of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The attractive exterior architecture of the building is notable for its three story rusticated limestone base, ornate decorative work below the fifth floor windows, and classic rope design decorative work at the building's corners.

Over the years 988 Fifth Avenue has had its share of notable tenants including Grace Kelly who resided there in the 1950's just before she left for Monaco,

The condominium entrance is discretely located on quiet East 80th Street, one of the most beautiful mansion-lined blocks in the Upper East Side Historic District. There is a full time door person, live-in Resident Manager, and the apartment includes a basement storage cage. Pets are welcome.

With only twelve full floor residences and one penthouse home, residents enjoy the highest level of service, privacy and security.
