Description

Full Floor on Fifth Avenue - Four Rooms on the Park

A Stunning and Simple Combination Opportunity

High above the trees at 955 Fifth Avenue, you may find the best-ever full floor available on Fifth. This beautiful 8th floor apartment is divided in to two separate apartments, which are easily joined by opening the door to each apartment from the private elevator landing.

The larger of the two apartments is fully renovated with state of the art systems, in a very high level of taste.

The Venetian plaster in the apartment and the beautiful serene tones of the rooms make one feel, instantly, at peace in the middle of the world’s most exciting city. The B-line of the 8th floor has three beautiful rooms overlooking Central Park through large picture windows. The living room, with its wood-burning fireplace, is matched by the library with its own working fireplace, creating two amazing public rooms overlooking the park.

You may easily spend time entertaining friends or dining deux. The master bedroom is a beautiful, airy, sunlit room with views to which everyone would wish to awaken.

Within the B-line apartment, one has only to open the front door from the gallery and to open the opposite door across the elevator landing to enter the splendid, two-bedroom, A-line apartment.

These apartments may be joined simply by opening two doors , or, easily, at the back of the apartment.

Upon entering the A-Line apartment, one may be in one’s own environment to work remotely, read, or to converse with a group of friends. It is suddenly, as though, these two apartments become a house, high above the trees over Central Park.

One can own both or one of the apartments, the smaller of the two can serve as the perfect guest apartment for family or friends. This A-line apartment, just as with B-line apartment, has a living room dominated by a large picture window over the park. Therefore, the combination of the A and B line apartments would give one four rooms, each with a major picture window, over Central Park.

This glamorous Fifth Avenue full floor combination apartment is within a Rosario Candela building, which one enters through a small and intimate 1930s lobby. Residents of the building enjoy both a wonderful gym and the delights of ascending to a fabulous roof terrace & garden which is shared by the residents of this small (32 residential units) and magnificent building.

The sunlight in the apartment is both fabulous to the east, towards the Carlyle Hotel, and west, to the brilliant sunsets over the Park.

The master bedroom, with its large en-suite bath, also faces west over the park. The large picture window enhances the romantic views over the trees of Central Park to the skyline of Central Park West. The apartment, in addition to the master bedroom, has two additional bedrooms and an office.

The slightly oval shape of the dining room, and its Candela design, make it one of the most special rooms in the apartment. The window to the east and south creates perfect natural light. Additionally, a view from the dining room through the gallery and living room to the park further enhance the charm of this room.

Adjacent to the dining room, the sun-flooded kitchen is state of the art. There is a private office at the eastern side of the apartment with beautiful light and a door to close for complete privacy while working.

955 Fifth Avenue is located on Museum Mile.

It is two and a half blocks from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and it is in close proximity to the Guggenheim Museum, the Jewish Museum, the Met Breuer, the Neue Gallery and many other cultural institutions.

The "Children’s Gate" to Central Park is just opposite the apartment and through it one enters the magical world of landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted. Along the beautiful paths to the north or south one enters the vast network of footpaths, which lead to the Central Park Zoo, the Bethesda Fountain, north to the Pinetum, or to the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir.
