Description

The Kenilworth, completed in 1908, is the quintessential Central Park West building. Evoking a 12th C. English castle once home to Henry V, the Kenilworth and this exemplary 3 BR, originally 7 room residence in particular offer brilliant Park views, pristine architectural detail, attentive doorman service and the best location on CPW.

Impeccably restored and lit by all day sun, Apartment 6N is graced by pastoral Park and City panoramas in 3 directions. A handsome living room and parallel formal dining room present expansive views of Central Park. Serving the entertainment area is a large cook’s eat-in kitchen fitted with beautiful cabinetry, cutting-edge appliances, a spacious dining area and superb service quarters with a bath, butler’s pantry and laundry.

The handsome corner primary suite and its boudoir bath are surrounded by sublime Park vistas. There are two additional sunny bedrooms and baths. Ceilings soar.

Windows and doors are encased by exquisite period framing. Floors are quarter-sawn oak. Space and light abound.

There is a lovely shareholders’ roof terrace overlooking the entire Park, an ample storage bin and a sumptuous lobby that reflects the building’s French Second Empire style of construction by the eminent architect, Ralph S. Townsend. On a thoroughfare celebrated for neo Renaissance facades and Beaux Arts towers, the Kenilworth with its moat is aptly named.

Its qualities, personified by Apartment 6N, will regale the most inveterate seeker of residential perfection on Central Park West.
