Description

944 Fifth Avenue Occupying the most desirable location on Fifth Avenue, between East 75th and 76th Streets, 944 Fifth Avenue was erected in 1925 during the heyday of the ‘Roaring Twenties’. Built in the sought-after Italian renaissance palazzo style, the impressive limestone facade encompasses 62’ on Fifth Avenue and offers just 14 full floor, perfectly scaled, high-ceilinged apartments, with the living room, library and master bedroom enjoying fantastic frontage on Central Park. Brilliantly conceived and meticulously renovated throughout with custom millwork and recessed lighting, designed to highlight an art collection, the 5th floor provides a serene and quiet oasis for the discerning buyer and offers expansive living and entertaining space. A private elevator landing opens into the generous central foyer which in turn leads to the massive 42’ living room/library (originally two separate rooms) and an elegant 18’ square formal dining room. The primary bedroom suite, also with direct Park views, is vast and includes an oversized marble bathroom as well as a separate additional half bath, and an impressive large fully-fitted dressing room.

The entry foyer has a discretely located powder room and walk-in closet, and a gallery bedroom hallway leads to three additional, large bedrooms, two with en suite bathrooms and one currently used as a spacious Pilates studio and gym. The windowed eat-in chef’s kitchen is fully equipped and amply supplied with top of the line appliances and storage, including a butler’s pantry and a separate staff area with laundry room, work area and a light-filled corner office with bathroom which could easily become a fifth bedroom. This impressive apartment was curated to showcase a major art collection and encompasses every aspect of mechanicals and design, with multi-zone air conditioning and humidification. There are single pane windows affording beautiful sylvan views of Central Park and south to the city skyline, automated window shades, and a smart system for lighting and audio.

This offering represents a rare opportunity to acquire a light-filled turn-key property in one of Fifth Avenue’s most prestigious pre-war buildings.
