Description

A prewar architectural masterpiece, originally built in 1924 by J.E.R.

The highest level of finishes were used throughout with every room having picturesque views and grand-scale perfect for entertaining.

You arrive on the 10th Floor of 620 Park Avenue through an elegant private elevator landing leading to the grand entrance gallery both finished in White Calacatta bookmatched marble with Nero Marquina accents. Off the gallery is an exquisite powder room and an oversized coat closet. The sun-flooded living room boasts four oversized windows which face east over Park Avenue; the magnificent room has herringbone floors and a working fireplace.

Adjacent is a handsome walnut wood paneled library with custom built-ins, a wet bar with a Subzero refrigerator and paneled pocket doors finished in antique mirror that dazzle. Next is a formal dining room which has two windows facing east over Park Avenue also fitted with the same beautiful pocket doors allowing the entertaining space to flow. The palatial corner eat-in kitchen faces west and north with five windows and state-of-the-art appliances including a Subzero refrigerator/freezer, Subzero wine refrigerator, two additional Subzero refrigerator drawers, Wolf 48-inch double oven, Wolf eight-burner range with a custom RangeCraft vented hood, Miele dishwasher, Dacor warming drawer, built-in microwave and two Julien sinks.

There are two-inch apron thick honed Calacatta countertops with a matching backsplash that has been bookmatched, Bespoke custom cabinets with interior walnut cabinetry, Michael S. Smith for Kallista fixtures and fittings, and the floors are hand-cut wide plank oak. The enormous eat-in area has a center island with seating for four as well as a separate breakfast room which is perfect for informal dining.

Off of the kitchen is a windowed butlers pantry and laundry room equipped with a GE vented washer/dryer, a sink and a large closet. This wing also has a maids suite which is currently configured as a study with a custom built-in walnut desk, bookshelves and custom file drawers. There is also a windowed full bathroom with a shower finished in marble.

As for the private quarters, there is a separate bedroom hallway which leads to the luxurious corner master suite, a combination of two bedrooms. The master bedroom is in the corner facing south and east with three oversized windows and a working fireplace. This room is connected to a windowed home office which overlooks Park Avenue along with a custom dressing room with ten closets completed by walnut cabinetry, LED lighting and closet rod lighting.

The lavish windowed master bathroom is finished in custom cut Calacatta herringbone floors and walls and is equipped with Kallista and Waterworks fixtures. It faces south and has two sinks, a walk-in shower and an oversized separate bathtub that faces a built-in Seura television. There is also a separate water closet.
