Description

The Penthouse at 993 Fifth Avenue is amongst the most significant penthouses to be available in over three decades. A stunning example of the grand scale, elegant proportions, and admirable floorplans that made Emery Roth one of the pre-eminent architects of the pre-war era, this home has soaring ceilings and incredible architecture. Spanning over 5500 square feet inside, this 12-room home occupies the entire top two floors of 993 Fifth Avenue, with stunning views and brilliant light on all four sides.

The elevator landing on the 17th floor leads to a marble entry hall with a dramatic sweeping curved staircase, double height ceilings, and French doors to a beautiful entertaining terrace overlooking Central Park and the Met.

The terrace also provides expansive views south across the park to the midtown skyline, and north to the Reservoir. The impressive entry is flanked by mahogany double doors that lead to the main entertaining rooms. The grand-scaled living room, 39' by 21', has windows west, south and east with beautiful open views over Central Park, the mid-town skyline, and south and east over landmarked mansions.

There is a marble, wood-burning fireplace and another set of double doors that lead to a south-facing library with custom built-ins, a wood-burning fireplace, and an adjacent powder room and bar. The grand formal dining room is gracefully located off the gallery and has west exposures through oversized windows to Central Park and north to the Reservoir, the Central Park West skyline, and the George Washington Bridge. Through a discreet door off the dining room, a hallway leads to a windowed butler's pantry complete with refrigerator, sink, and more storage.

Off this is a large, windowed laundry room with side-by-side washer and dryer, a sink, ample folding space, and many built-in cabinets. The windowed kitchen has a massive prep-island, a 48-inch Viking stove with double-oven, a large stainless steel double sink with built-in drain board, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and lovely, traditional glass fronted cabinets. Beyond the kitchen is a charming, cozy breakfast room with north and open eastern exposures, providing stunning morning sunlight, and plenty of space.

A private hallway off the kitchen leads to two large, bedroom-sized sunny staff rooms with a shared full bath. The apartment is centrally air conditioned throughout.

From the grand entry foyer, a curved staircase ascends past a window with Central Park views to the apartment's private wing on the 18th floor. Three large bedrooms are on this level, all with large multi-fixture private bathrooms, ample closet storage and French doors onto the terraces.

The primary bedroom and the second bedroom both face the park and the third has a wood-burning fireplace and a spacious, extremely private east and south facing terrace. The private quarters are as luxurious and sumptuous as the living and entertaining rooms below.

993 Fifth, designed in 1930 by Emery Roth, is a distinguished, limestone-clad cooperative with only 17 units, providing residents with the ultimate in privacy in a prime location directly across from Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Residents have the highest level of service and security.

The building also offers a fitness center and storage. The sale is subject to 2.75% building transfer fee, to be paid by the purchaser. Available separately, a large ground floor guest suite with full bath can be purchased.
