Description

This one is a beauty! Enjoy gorgeous natural light and unobstructed views of iconic NYC landmarks from this elegant pre-war home on the coveted Park Avenue. Situated on a high floor of this Fred F.

French designed building, the W line is a spacious 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath with four exposures and windows in every room; 12 of which are facing the beautifully landscaped Park Avenue. Upon leaving your semi-private elevator landing and separate foyer, you’ll enter the classically designed living area that is perfect for lounging and entertaining. There is a stunning wood burning fireplace, a built-in bar, original beamed 9.5’ ceilings, four oversized windows and solid oak herringbone floors.

The perfectly positioned, corner dining area allows one to have a meal while viewing the Empire State Building, the historic facade of Grand Central Terminal or the Chrysler Building. The windowed kitchen again offers lovely views of the Chrysler Building. The second bedroom can be entered through French doors, allowing it to be used as an extension of the living room, an office or a separate guest suite.

The primary bedroom is grand in size, has western and southern exposures, fantastic light and lovely views of the Empire State Building and Park Avenue. The windowed full bathroom has the quintessential look with its clawfoot soaking bathtub and brass finishes. Located in one of the most desired landmarked districts of New York City, 55 Park Avenue is a well-run, boutique co-op with a full-time doorman, elevator operator, a live-in super and a central laundry room.

An extra large private storage unit is included. Great restaurants, shops, museums and Madison Square Park as well as various options for public transportation including Grand Central Terminal are nearby. Pied-a-terres and pets are welcome on a case-by-case basis.

Please note there is a 2% flip tax paid by the buyer.
