Description

Designed in 1916 by Starrett & Van Vleck, 820 Fifth Avenue is among New York’s finest and most coveted addresses. Within this palazzo-inspired limestone building, this superb residence wraps the southwest corner of Fifth Avenue and East 63rd Street. Boasting gorgeously lush vistas over Central Park, as well as an abundance of light, soaring high ceilings throughout, and beautiful herringbone-patterned hardwood floors, this apartment is truly splendid. A semi-private elevator landing opens to a very impressive Gallery, which accesses two marvelous entertainment rooms: an exceedingly pretty and light-filled corner Living Room with a wood-burning fireplace and a very handsome wood-paneled Library with a an enclosed wet bar and an ensuite bath.

Both rooms have grandly-proportioned eight-over-eight windows, through which there are glorious outlooks to Central Park and the New York skyline. Three capacious walk-in closets are conveniently accessible from the Gallery, as well as a gracefully curved staircase that descends to private access to the building’s lobby. Separated by a gracious hallway, there is a stately and well-proportioned corner Dining Room with a wood-burning fireplace and serene eastern and southern outlooks onto the pretty townhouses of tree-lined East 63rd Street. Beyond, a large, bright eat-in Kitchen with ample storage is supported by a Butler’s Pantry and two Staff Rooms with a shared bathroom.

Private quarters are comprised of a delightful Master Bedroom with a huge windowed ensuite bathroom, and very ample closets. Nearby, there is another very generous Bedroom, currently configured as a Sitting Room, with an ensuite bathroom. Both Bedrooms have wonderfully bright and pretty southern outlooks and are flooded with glorious sunlight. An extremely desirable and versatile floor plan distinguishes this sophisticated apartment.

The thoughtful and inviting layout, very appealing and attractive vistas, and the residence’s inherent elegance make this classic New York residence ideal. One of the New York’s most desirable addresses, 820 Fifth Avenue is a premier white-glove cooperative and offers its residents the highest level of privacy and security. Impeccable staffing includes a 24-hour doorman, porters, and a very well-regarded resident manager, and the building offers large, dedicated storage bins, a file room, and wine storage. 820 Fifth Avenue has a classically glamorous marble lobby, and a handsome canopied entrance with bronze lanterns.

The building no longer maintains summer work rules and welcomes pets.
