Description

Take a stroll back in time to the Grandeur of Old New York at the rarely available KenilworthWe are proud to present apartment 5W in Mint Condition, clad in exquisite prewar detail, high beamed ceilings throughout, extraordinary woodwork, as well as central air conditioning, leaded glass windows and doors, and oversized windows offering partial City and oblique Central Park views, with south, east, west and north exposures, perfect for getting lost gazing onto the treelined streets of the iconic Upper West Side. The Kenilworth, built in 1908, with all of the early twentieth century charm youd hope for, overlooks Central Park, in the middle of a historic Gold Coast on Central Park West that includes the Dakota and the Museum of Natural History. From the moment you walk into the extraordinary French second-empire beaux-arts lobby and meet some of the best staff in New York, youll be enchanted.

Apartment 5W offers the luxury and grandeur youd expect at twice the price.When you enter, you are greeted by a large windowed foyer/gallery. To the right of the gallery lies the privacy of the bedroom wing and to the left of the gallery are the public spaces. The large, south-facing chef's eat-in kitchen is outfitted with top appliances, Viking and Bosch, and superb handmade cabinetry.

A butlers pantry adjoins the kitchen and is also outfitted with an extra sink and refrigerator and plentiful storage space and custom cabinetry. Youll also find a service room with full size washer and dryer, pantry and utility closet, and an impeccable full bathroom. Custom lighting and sound systems are additional amenities.One of the treasures of the building, the stunning large dining room is paneled in original quarter-sawn flame oak that has never been painted; its beautiful century-old patina is beautiful and rare, perfec for entertaining.

Its decorative fireplace is flanked by oak shutters. Beautiful French doors lead into the double living room with decorative fireplace and oversized windows enjoying both western and southern exposures. Stunning floor-to-ceiling custom builtins with comfortable windowseats, great for curling up wit your favotite book, have been thoughtfully added to appear is if they were part of the original design.

An alcove houses an office and could easily be cordoned off to create a fourth bedroom or video room.Three bedrooms are on the private side of the apartment. All three have the high ceilings and prewar details that characterize the entire apartment. The smallest bedroom can be used as an office but comes with a large closet and beautiful big window that makes it a wonderful cozy bedroom with great light.

The large second bedroom includes floor-to-ceiling mahogany custom closets as well as a walk-in closet. The third bath is situated off the entry and shares an entrance with the second bedroom making it semi-ensuite.The master is fit for Royals. Its a large room that has been beautifully designed with stunning upholstered (quiet and beautiful!) walls offering east and western exposures, with a direct view of Central Park and New Yorks Upper East Side.
