Description

Majestic full-floor 14 room apartment with spectacular grand rooms, 6 bedrooms, 5,740 sq. ft., 55’ frontage on Central Park with enjoyable views of nature and 4 corner rooms with double exposure distinguish this dazzling space centered high above the beautiful Conservatory Pond with views of tiny sailboats in spring and autumn, and glorious fireworks on July 4th and New Year’s Eve allowing for front row entertaining. Upon entry into this spectacular apartment, situated in a coveted Fifth Avenue building with only 12 floors and just one apartment per floor, one is immediately aware of brilliant sunlight, extraordinary views, and an abundance of space. Harry Winston, jeweler to the stars and previous owner of this rarely available apartment, was known to carry priceless jewels in his pocket, to the point where his insurance company would not allow him to show his face in public, and he therefore appreciated the very highest level of security and privacy offered by this glorious apartment and one of the most coveted white glove prewar buildings on Fifth Avenue, located at the epicenter of Fifth Avenue’s Gold Coast. Mr. Winston entertained up to 100 guests at legendary parties in this apartment with extraordinary vistas of Central Park, taking full advantage of the magnificent spaciousness emanating from grand rooms, soaring ceilings, enormous wall space, exquisite moldings, 4 fireplaces, huge oversized windows and 5,740 sq. ft. suited to both the traditional and contemporary style. As a pre-war co-op, this apartment has a remarkable open feel, features four exposures, allowing views of Central Park, the West Side skyline, Central Park South skyline and long north views of the park through 27 oversized windows.

The apartment also offers peripheral Central Park views from the dining room, master bedroom, master bath and kitchen. Brilliant sunlight streams into all rooms over protected picturesque townhouses, making even the back rooms of the apartment bright. Public Rooms: Accessed from a private elevator landing, the entrance gallery captures exquisite views of the park through a wide doorway leading to one of the loveliest living rooms in New York, which overlooks Fifth Avenue and is surrounded by views of the park. The room, which is a corner and is 33’ x 18’, has grand architectural details including a wood burning fireplace, 10’6” ceiling, herringbone floor and lovely moldings.

This stately space leads to a spectacular corner dining room, 22’ x 23’, which seats up to 36 people, and has four windows on three sides, offering views of the park from anywhere in the room, has views of the Conservatory Pond, Central Park South skyline and views over townhouses to the east. All views are protected. The library, which is 19’ x 15’, is off the living room, and has simple and elegant wood-paneling, bookshelves, a wood burning fireplace, and peripheral views of Central Park. The large sunny eat-in kitchen faces south with huge tall windows offering peripheral views of Central Park and extraordinary sunlight.

There is an adjoining pantry and laundry room. Private Wing: A 64’ long gallery, 5’6” wide, with 10’6” ceiling, leads to the bedroom wing, including the double master bedroom, 24’ x 16’, with peripheral park views, wood burning fireplace, oversized windows, walk-in closets and en-suite marble bath. Five further bedrooms are off the gallery, including 2 large corner bedrooms (20’ x 17’ and 19’ x 19’), each with double exposures and en-suite baths. Two bedrooms face south with exceptional light. Built in 1917, this limestone building offers 12 floor-through apartments with fabulous architectural details, and a masterfully configured floor plan.
