Description

Encompassing the entire THIRD floor of 640 Park Avenue this magnificent seventeen into fourteen room simplex is an architectural tour de force. The simply stunning residence is offered in immaculate and mint condition, and is especially distinguished by abundant verdant tree line outlooks onto Park Avenue, and sunny southern views over East 66th Street. Accessed via a private elevator landing, the immense and extraordinarily gracious Colefax Fowler designed apartment is a true delight. The elegant twenty-five-foot Gallery with wood burning fireplace leads to an impressive suite of entertaining rooms which span sixty-five feet along Park Avenue.

Included is a beautifully proportioned corner Living Room, an enormous Dining Room, and a handsome wood-paneled Library. There is also a big Study that fronts along the side street. And each of these rooms features a wood burning fireplace with a lovely period mantle.

A Powder Room completes the layout of the public quarters. The private quarters are comprised of a south-facing bedroom wing that is accessed by a gigantic long hallway that measures an extraordinary seven feet across. There is a splendid and massive two room Master Bedroom Suite that boasts a wood burning fireplace, a very large and proper Dressing Room with closets galore, and two marble clad Bathrooms. Additionally, there are two very big Bedrooms with en-suite Baths and ample closets, and also a smaller Guest Bedroom with bath and a corner Office, which can easily be converted into a marvelous guest or child’s Bedroom Suite. Beyond there is a vast and pristine state of the art chefs eat-in Kitchen, a Pantry, a large Breakfast / TV Room, a Laundry Room, and a generous Staff Room with bath. Original and impeccably preserved architectural details, beautifully proportioned rooms, exceptionally large windows, six wood burning fireplaces, ten-foot ceilings, and an extremely desirable and expansive circular floor plan characterize this stellar and sprawling residence.

Without a doubt, this gloriously appointed and gracefully laid out apartment truly defines luxury and elegance in apartment living. 640 Park Avenue is superbly located in one of Manhattan’s most desirable residential areas on the west side of Park Avenue in the East 60s. It is convenient to Central Park and steps from Madison Avenue and many of New York City’s best shops, galleries, schools and restaurants. Constructed in 1914 and featuring twelve full floor residences, this highly regarded white-glove prewar cooperative was designed by the renowned architect J.E.R. Carpenter, and is a stellar example of his extraordinary and celebrated talents. Flip tax 2.5% paid by buyer.

35% financing permitted. No summer work rules. Pied a terres allowed.
