Description

Perfectly situated on the 14th Floor of 778 Park Avenue, Rosario Candelas most coveted building, this spectacular sun-flooded full-floor residence is a true architectural masterpiece that combines grand scaled rooms and three large terraces for extraordinary living. The home has undergone a complete state-of-the-art renovation. No expense was spared utilizing the best of materials and systems while restoring the elegance of old world detail.

Every room has picturesque views including views of Central Park from all of the western facing rooms. There are five bedroom suites and six and a half luxurious renovated bathrooms plus a staff suite. The residence has been beautifully decorated by AD Top 100 designer Daniel Romualdez.

Throughout the residence there are ceilings up to 11 feet, three wood burning fireplaces with Chambord limestone mantels, raised doorways, radiant heat in all the full bathrooms, new herringbone floors as well as new quartersawn oak doors, custom millwork and moldings, bespoke Nanz antique nickel hardware, and specialty paint finishes. All mechanical elements of this sophisticated home have been fully modernized including a Crestron Total Home Technology system which integrates the extensive audio/video components, Savant lighting system and motorized shades. The entire residence utilizes a new nine-zone HVAC system with all zones temperature controlled for heat as well as AC.

In addition there is a humidification system and the plumbing system has been upgraded to brass. The home has Cat5e wiring, a Panasonic phone and intercom system, and wired WAPs throughout for brilliant WiFi connectivity. The windows are all brand-new Panorama windows and Hopes French doors; they feature UV protectant built into the glass to protect the finishes, art and fabrics within the residence.

The outdoor spaces all have automatic watering and lighting systems. You arrive on the 14th Floor of 778 Park Avenue through an elegant private elevator landing leading to the grand 34-foot long entrance gallery both finished in Greco Maron book matched marble with bespoke antique nickel details. Off the gallery is an exquisite powder room with sterling silver Fantini fixtures and two oversized coat closets.

The sun-drenched living room boasts three oversized windows which face east over Park Avenue. This magnificent room has herringbone floors and the first wood burning fireplace. Adjacent is a handsome Macassar Ebony wood paneled library with custom built-ins, the second wood burning fireplace, a stunning bar area and solid white oak pocket doors.

Next is a corner formal dining room which houses the third wood burning fireplace and is also fitted with the same beautiful pocket doors allowing the entertaining spaces to flow. The dining room has two sets of floor-to-ceiling French doors that open onto an incredible 21-foot long terrace floating over Park Avenue creating an ideal space for alfresco entertaining. The palatial eat-in kitchen is 27-feet long and faces west with views of Central Park.

It is equipped with top-of-the-line appliances. There are Quartzite countertops and backsplashes and bespoke polished nickel and art glass custom cabinets. The enormous eat-in area has a center island with seating for four as well as a separate breakfast area which is perfect for informal dining.

Off of the kitchen is a large pantry closet as well as a home office. There is a second staircase that leads upstairs to a home gym that faces west with views of Central Park; this room could also function as a playroom or guest suite. There is a windowed bathroom finished in Quartzite and Ann Sacks tiles.

On this floor is also a laundry room equipped with a vented washer/dryer, a sink and a large closet. Down a set of stairs from the main floor is a staff suite which is a corner room facing west and south with peaks of the park and an en-suite full bathroom. 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 sets of floor to ceiling French doors that open onto a corner landscaped terrace. This room is clad in Loro Piana cashmere and connects to a custom dressing room with six closets, built-in dressers and two concealed safes. The lavish windowed master bathroom is finished in Blue de Savoie marble with Nano glass countertops and custom lacquer cabinets, and is equipped with Dornbracht fixtures.

It faces south and has two sinks, a walk-in steam shower, an oversized bathtub, and a separate water closet. There are four additional grand bedroom suites all with excellent closet space and three windowed bathrooms all finished with Costa de Esmeralda granite floors, Corian paneling on the walls and countertops, and Dornbracht fixtures. There is a 3% flip tax paid by the purchaser.

The building has a brand new gym, yoga/massage room and beauty parlor.
