Description

Welcome to this spacious, south facing and sunny classic five Fifth Avenue home at the corner of 68th street. The apartment features a fabulous 32 by 14-foot living room, a dining room, 2 generously sized bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. This space is ideal for entertaining or just as an ideal private New York City pied-a-terre, close to top museums, galleries, great shopping and amazing dining options. The gracious entry foyer flows directly into a fabulous and luminous living room with south exposure and indirect views of Central Park.

On the left side of the entry foyer, you will find a separate dining room. It is located right by a windowed kitchen that can also be accessed by a service entrance. On the private wing of the apartment, a convenient little corridor separates the public space from the bedrooms. Therefore, creating a sense of privacy for the apartment residents.

The functional layout provides 2 spacious winged bedrooms. Each bedroom has space large enough to accommodate a king size bed with a sitting area or with a desk. One of the bedrooms has a en-suite bath and a walk-in closet.

The primary bedroom, facing south has angled views of Central Park. The second bedroom is quiet; it overlooks the building's courtyard and features custom built-ins. There are 2 marble bathrooms located next to each bedroom, one features a shower and the other one a large soaking tub. The apartment needs some TLC.

You could easily transform this fabulous space into the home of your dream. Sorry no W/D. A spacious and well-ventilated laundry room is located in the building premises for your convenience.

There are hard wood floors and plenty of closets throughout. 870 Fifth Avenue is a white glove building at the corner of Fifth Ave. and 68th street with a full-time doorman, concierge, a live-in resident manager, attended elevator, a new beautiful fitness center, bike storage, private storage and a fabulous roof deck with direct central Park Views. Pied-a-terre, co-purchasing and pets are allowed. 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. The pictures with furniture were virtually staged. 3% Flip Tax by the buyer.
