Description

Elegant and rare full floor Pre-war Condo overlooking Central Park. Built in 1925 by one of the foremost grand architects of the prewar era, J.E.R Carpenter, this corner 4 bedroom, 5 and one-half bath residence has about fifty feet Central Park frontage, and seamlessly combines old world grandeur with all of today’s modern-day conveniences.

The private elevator vestibule opens to a spacious gallery opening onto all of the entertaining rooms. The grand formal living room faces Central Park and the famed Metropolitan Museum fountains to the North.

This spacious front living room has a fine wood-burning fireplace and opens to a cozy English pine paneled library to the east. Adjacent to the living room is a large formal dining room also facing Central Park, and perfectly suited for entertaining of any size. Off the dining room is a spacious Chef’s kitchen with breakfast area and spacious butler’s pantry.

Through the pantry one can access a home office, and a guest room with full bath, as well as laundry. A beautifully appointed guest bath is also located off the gallery.

A corridor off the north end of the foyer leads to three bedrooms, affording maximum privacy. The corner, primary bedroom suite is located at the easternmost end, and also has a wood burning fireplace, two bathrooms and generous closet space throughout.

The two additional bedrooms have en-suite baths, walk-in closets and lovely views over the tree-lined street. 988 is a white glove, pet friendly, condominium located in the epicenter of the Upper East Side. Each condominium is full floor, only 12 owners in the building, affording excellent service to every resident.

Each apartment has a designated storage bin which transfers.
