Description

Priced to sell!!! Welcome to apartment 1N at 23 Park Avenue, an exquisite 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom duplex with a tastefully designed private garden. Set-up like a classic maisonette of the late 1800s era, apartment 1N has been modernized with a washer/dryer, gas fireplace, and updated kitchen/bathrooms.

The highly desirable prewar details of original hard wood floors, high ceilings, crown moldings, and a detailed fireplace mantle make this offering truly special. At almost 1700 square feet interior and 350 square feet exterior, this home is located on one of the most beautiful blocks of lower Park Avenue, in one of the most distinguished 1890s buildings designed by the renowned Gilded Age architect, Stanford White. The edifice was originally built as a single-family mansion for the then-parks commissioner, James H.

Robb. After Robbs death, the building became the opulent headquarters for the Advertising Club of New York. Later, 23 Park Avenue was converted to a coop residence.


Enter this home through an elegant entry-foyer, which opens to an expansive living room.

Truly a reflection of its era, the historic details have been preserved in their original state. On the upper level, there is a powder room, kitchen, gracious formal dining room with built in cabinets, and a 22ft x 17ft square living room that is perfect for entertaining. From the living room, a door to an outdoor spiral staircase leads down one floor to the private and tranquil garden, which is equipped with electricity and water.

Off the entryway is a staircase to the downstairs sleeping quarters, which includes two large bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and generous closet space. French doors provide access to the garden from the master bedroom.


Apartment 1N at 23 Park Avenue is a rare opportunity to own one of the few classic duplexes with private outdoor space on Park Avenue, a short distance to the iconic Grand Central Station, Bryant Park, the Morgan Library and Museum, and dining in the NoMad neighborhood. Pets are permitted but sorry, no sublets.

There is a flip-tax, 2% of the sales price, which the seller pays to the coop at closing.
