Description

This magnificent high floor apartment features stunning Central Park views, sun flooded interiors, tremendously high ceilings, lovely and grandly proportioned rooms, and exceptional architectural details. A massive windowed Gallery with original paneling opens to the fabulous entertaining rooms, laid out in enfilade format, with a fireplace on both the northern and southern flank. These extraordinary public rooms are distinguished by broad sweeping views of the Metropolitan Museum, Central Park, and across to the Westside skyline.

There is a baronial Living Room which spans more than 38 ft, as well as a wonderfully scaled Dining Room. Beyond, the vast back of house is comprised of a Breakfast Area, massive Chef's Kitchen, Pantry and Laundry. There are also two big Bedrooms plus a Staff Room.

The entirety of the private quarters have the very good fortune of a marvelous southern exposure that ensures abundant sunlight all day. The enormous corner master bedroom suite is comprised of two original bedrooms that have been seamlessly combined into a fabulous Suite. With gorgeous views of Central Park and the Southern skyline, the Master Bedroom also boasts an enormous marble bathroom overlooking the Park as well as excellent closet space.

Situated along a wide hall, there are two additional Bedrooms. Originally constructed in 1912 by the distinguished architectural firm of McKim, Mead & White, the 12-story palatial Italian Renaissance style building with its dignified limestone facade and distinctive wrought iron canopy, is widely regarded as the most handsome prewar cooperative in NYC. Moreover, 998 Fifth is legendary for being the first luxury apartment house specifically designed to offer all the advantages of private townhouse along with all of the conveniences associated with modern living. Considered a landmark in residential apartment living, this coop sets a standard of elegance for other buildings that is often aspired to but rarely achieved.
