Description

Perhaps only once in a lifetime is a home as magical as this available. An apartment that truly has it all; four major rooms with sweeping Central Park and Manhattan skyline views, a 600 square foot terrace off the living room and library, light in all directions, a naturally occurring duplex with majestic prewar details, and one of the most prized addresses in Manhattan. Apartment 19E has not been available for 60 years- who knows when it will be again!

Off a semi private landing, the public rooms radiate off a grand foyer with a beautiful original staircase. The oversized living room has 2 exposures including direct Central Park views, access to the terrace, and a wood burning fireplace. The adjacent library also enjoys perfect Park views, terrace access and has a full bathroom that also functions as a powder room.

On the other side of the gallery is the very large south facing dining room which can be formal or open to the gallery and/or the kitchen for more informal living.

The kitchen area is comprised of a butler's pantry, a cooking portion and a breakfast area. The butler's pantry boasts ample storage and prep space and the original St.

Charles cabinets. The cooking portion of the kitchen and the breakfast room are very generous in size and are sun flooded with open west facing City views. These 3 areas can be left as is or combined to make one giant windowed eat in kitchen.

In this area of the home is the second set of private stairs leading to the staff/bedroom area upstairs.

On the 20th floor, a gracious wide hallway with built-in bookshelves leads to three enormous bedrooms. The master bedroom has three windows looking over Central Park, a walk-in closet, dressing room with linen closet and a four fixture bathroom.

The second bedroom also has direct Park views, plus two walk in closets and an en-suite bathroom overlooking the Park. The third bedroom faces south and has three large closets and an en-suite bathroom. There are also two staff rooms or home offices with open City views.

A laundry room is between them.

Beautiful original prewar details, amazing views and glowing light and a flexible and gracious floorplan make this home the epitome of grand prewar Central Park living!
