Description

Exclusive Fifth Avenue Duplex w/Direct Park Views Architectural Grandeur Exclusive and understated, this elegant home with direct views of Central Park combines the privacy of a townhouse with the convenience of a distinguished Fifth Avenue building. There is excellent separation between public and private space as well as brilliant sunshine from the east in the morning and beautiful western light in the afternoon. Classic architectural details include well-proportioned rooms, high ceilings, oversized casement windows, crown moulding, four gas fireplaces, and two staircases.

Gracious Flow Originally a 10-room residence, the thoughtful layout on the 5th floor is perfect for entertaining and includes a private elevator landing, refined foyer, sweeping front staircase, impressive living room, handsome wood-paneled library, spacious dining room, butler’s pantry and a large, square eat-in kitchen. The 6th floor private quarters offer the potential for 5 bedrooms and 4 baths. A substantial primary chamber and en suite bath both feature direct park views.

The secondary bedrooms and adjoining bathrooms are generous in size and allow for flexibility. A back stairwell provides convenient access to the kitchen. Unparalleled Privacy 953 Fifth Avenue was designed as a cooperative in 1924 by noted architect and historian, Isaac Newton Phelps Stokes who also designed St.

Paul’s Chapel at Columbia University and the J. Harper Poor townhouse at 33 East 69th Street. With just seven residences and a full-time staff, this building offers an unparalleled level of service and privacy for serene and discreet living.

Up to 60% financing and no summer work rules. Pets, pied a terres and trust purchases are welcome. A 2.5% flip tax is paid by the buyer.
