Description

Welcome to one of the most gracious and elegantly designed classic six room homes on Fifth Avenue. Every inch of this home has been beautifully renovated while maintaining the integrity of the stunning Prewar details throughout. The proportions, layout, flow, and room sizes are exceptional, indicative of the style of Rosario Candela.

One enters into a very large and proper gallery which separates the living room and the grand formal dining room.

The exquisite, sunny, living room offers direct Central Park views, a wood burning fireplace, several custom built-ins, and charming window seats. The sunny formal dining room easily seats 12 and is perfectly positioned next to the kitchen. The eat-in chefs kitchen is replete with vented Viking range, Sub Zero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher and stacked Miele washer/dryer.

The oversized primary bedroom suite boasts direct Park views, a four-piece marble bathroom, and several custom closets.

The second bedroom has been made into a wonderful den with built-in Murphy Bed, handsome built-in bookshelves, and a stunning onyx bathroom with stall shower. Finally, a comfortably appointed staff or guest room with full bathroom, sits on the eastern end of the home.

A semi-private landing, beautiful oak floors, exquisite solid-core doors, thru-wall air-conditioning, custom moldings, soffit lighting, and several custom closets complete this fabulous Fifth Avenue listing.

Built and designed by Rosario Candela and completed in 1938, 955 Fifth Avenue is an intimate full-service luxury cooperative offering exceptional service and located on one of the prettiest blocks on Fifth Avenue. Amenities include a beautifully landscaped roof terrace with breathtaking Central Park and panoramic city skyline views, a state-of-the-art gym, a central laundry room and a bicycle room.

A large individual climate-controlled storage transfers with the apartment. 50% financing allowed. There is a 3% flip tax payable by the purchaser.

Pied a terre allowed and pets are welcome. Situated with Central Park in your front yard, and walking distance to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the finest shopping, restaurants, and everything which makes Manhattan so special - it doesnt get much better than this.
