Description

There is such a special feeling in this wonderful full floor apartment on Fifth Avenue and 75th Street, the most coveted and beloved location on The Upper East Side. The scale of the entrance gallery and rooms, the views to Central Park at just the perfect height, and the knowledge that so many wonderful dinner parties and meetings have happened in this chic residence make this a most unique residence. The living room, with a wood burning fireplace and ceilings over 10 feet, stretches along Fifth Avenue with three big picture windows framing the Park views. The room is generous enough for multiple seating areas as well as a baby grand piano.

Graceful, wide openings between the living room, dining room and charming library create wonderfully connected entertaining rooms all with Central Park exposures. The wood paneled primary bedroom suite with two large windows showcasing views of the Park, has its own wood burning fireplace and feels like an escape to a beautiful hotel in the French countryside. There are two baths and a sitting room/office attached to the primary bedroom, as well as abundant closet space. Just down the wide bedroom hallway are two more large and sunny bedrooms (one is currently used as a den) with full ensuite baths, as well as two staff rooms with baths. The lovely, inviting eat-in kitchen has a large window over the sink and a well outfitted butler’s pantry, perfect for formal dinners, but which can also be easily combined into the kitchen.

There is also a generous adjacent laundry room. The 6th Floor at 944 Fifth Avenue is a very special apartment in the best location in a very private and discreet building. (It also comes with the provenance of a beloved and revered owner who loved the apartment and frequently made history there.) Built in 1925, 944 Fifth Avenue is a 14 story building designed by architect Nathan Korn in an Italian Renaissance palazzo style. The facade of the building is limestone and the four-story base is eloquently articulated with many fine details.

With just one apartment per floor, this white-glove building offers residents the highest levels of service and privacy. - Pied-a-terre Allowed - Guarantors Allowed - Trust Ownership Allowed - Co-Purchasing Allowed - Pets Allowed - In Unit Washer Dryer - 2% Flip Tax paid by purchaser - 33% Financing Allowed - Gym In The Building
