Description

Move immediately into this high floor, elegantly renovated turnkey home infused with charm, airiness, comfort and sophistication. Plus, a room with a view like no other. Apt.

12G is an efficiently designed 1BR/1BTH pre-war co-op at the iconic 55 Central Park West, an extraordinary Art Deco building that combines the best of old and new. This sanctuary retreat in the sky features a wrap-around terrace and central air conditioning. Open into an enchanting entry foyer to the living and dining space with original and well-kept pre-war detail including an elegant archway, restored and ebonized oak wood floors, 9’ beamed ceilings, crown moldings, and oversized windows. Move through to the floor-to-ceiling glass door onto the wrap terrace showing wrought-iron fencing and vertical stone deco patterned wall. Every room of the apartment has Landmark-approved double pane windows making it pin-drop quiet as well as custom built cabinetry maximizing storage.

The kitchen has ample counter space and custom cabinetry to the ceiling. There is also a full-size Fisher & Paykel refrigerator and a two-drawer dishwasher, and a full-size Bertazzoni range and microwave. The bedroom accommodates a king-sized bed as well as the built-in window seat beside it, providing magnificent views of Central Park, a signature Gothic copper spire, and the skyline of midtown.

The windowed en-suite bathroom, with walk-in shower, has classic grey porcelain subway tiles; Carrara marble vanity/sink and marble floor tiles by Waterworks; fixtures and medicine cabinet by Restoration Hardware; and a Toto toilet. The bedroom has a sizable walk-in closet with custom built-ins. 55 Central Park West, designed and built in 1929 by the renowned architects Schwartz and Gross and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, recently earned the Stanford G. White Award for Preservation from the Institute for Classical Architecture for restoring its glamorous art deco lobby.

55 Central Park West also modernized its infrastructure earning it an ’A’ grade by NYC for its energy efficiency as well as offering ADA accessibility, new building heating, water, fire and electrical systems, and back-up power and co-generation. The building boasts a beautifully landscaped roof terrace for gathering/entertaining with panoramic views of Central Park and Midtown, a full-service staff, including two full-time doormen, a live-in Resident Manager, and the Building Link Communication system. Other amenities include a laundry room, bike room, package room, children’s playroom, and storage bins.

Located across from Tavern on the Green, 55 Central Park West is in close proximity to Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, shops, and restaurants and enjoys easy access to public transportation and Citi Bike.
