Description

This Spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom beautifully designed apartment is located on Fifth Avenue at the corner of 68th Street. It features south exposures facing fabulous townhouses and indirect views of Central Park. This space is ideal for entertaining or a perfect private New York City pied-a-terre, close to top museums, galleries, great shopping and amazing dining options. This home was designed by architects Hirsch/Corti and features a fabulous 30 by 14-foot living room separated by a custom walnut wood wall, creating a gracious entry foyer with a generous coat closet.

The foyer flows into the dining area where a custom wall of built-in closets maximizes the storage space. The windowed modern kitchen features Basalt slate countertops and high-end appliances. In the private wing, a convenient little corridor separates the 2 bedrooms from the public space, therefore creating a sense of privacy for the residents. The primary bedroom faces south and has angled views of Central Park.

It features an en-suite custom tiled bathroom, a wall of closets with custom shelves and a large walk-in closet featuring fabulous wood finishes. The second bedroom is quiet and it overlooks the building’s garden. The second bathroom is well placed in the hallway to be used by the second bedroom occupants and also by visiting guests. The apartment is fully serviced by central air conditioning with adjustable thermostat.

There are new triple pane windows, beautiful espresso solid oak parquet floors and a sound system throughout. Sorry no W/D. A spacious, bright and well-ventilated laundry room is located in the building premises for your convenience. 870 Fifth Avenue is a white glove building with a full-time doorman, concierge, a live-in resident manager, attended elevator, a new beautiful fitness center, bike storage, private locked storage cage (at no charge) and a fabulous roof deck with direct central Park Views.

50% financing, Pied-a-terre, co-purchasing, guarantors and pets are allowed. The artwork in the living room has been virtually staged for inspirational purposes. The proximity to Central Park, famous Museums, elegant restaurants and the legendary Madison Avenue shopping make this location one of the finest of New York City. Easy access to the west side and midtown cultural centers.
