Description

Fifth Avenue, Pre-War Classic Building, High Floor, Panoramic 270 degree VIEWS. Irreplaceable OLD WORLD CHARM.

DESCRIPTION---Nestled dramatically above Central Park on Fifth Avenue between 68th and 69th Streets sits an extraordinary apartment with the most magnificent old world architectural details. As you enter, you are immediately drawn to the dazzling views of Central Park and the New York Skyline.

Eleven windows from the major rooms all face Central Park.

The West, South and East exposures invite direct sunlight which bathes the entire apartment from sunrise to sunset, affording a serene feeling of warmth and openness.

AS you step into the apartment, you are impressively surrounded by a spectacular mahogany hallway. Walk a few steps further and you cross through an oval entryway with a magnificently designed inlaid marble floor, and a very high, hand carved ceiling, designed and executed by expert Italian craftsman.

The Library/Dining Room is adorned with wainscoting and Venetian plaster walls with built-in cabinets and book shelves while magnificent moldings set apart the coffered ceiling which has been hand painted and designed by European artisans.

The walls in the living room are beautifully done with Venetian Plaster.

The windowed Kitchen is outfitted with the finest top-of-the-line appliances, marble counters, and tasteful marble flooring. The adjacent marble and mahogany Butler’s Pantry/wet bar is perfectly positioned for entertaining and serving guests reminding one of old world grandeur.

The corner 26’6"X 15’ Living Room is the dream of all entertaining areas as it is spacious and comfortable with five windows capturing the view of iconic Central Park. The floors exude a beautiful warm glowing pecan color made of solid wood parquet all of which compliments the lovingly crafted architectural details throughout the home.

The Master Bedroom complete with it’s own custom designed windowed marble bathroom has four spectacular series of bowed windows that open the views to Central Park West and Central Park South.

The Second Bedroom with beamed ceilings and specially designed marble bath enjoys the same spectacular views as well. The generous sized staff room has a windowed marble bathroom filled with natural light and can be comfortably used as a guest room.

For your convenience there is a separate dedicated staff room on the second floor with its own private bathroom, and a large storage bin that is included in the sale. This is unique as not all the apartments enjoy this perk.

Building amenities include a private sitting garden, a professionally equipped full size fitness room, attended elevators, live-in building manager, a bike room, a business center and party/card room.

An apartment with views of this quality and in this location, becomes available perhaps once in a generation.
