740 PARK Avenue Unit: 2/3D

Considered by many to be among the finest examples of pre-war apartment house architecture, 740 Park Avenue is defined by its stately proportions and unsurpassed elegance. Drawn by Rosario Candela and Arthur Loomis Harmon in 1929, the plans for this esteemed building remain a standard for gracefully functional design and serve still as inspiration for today's most sought-after new developments. Ideally located on East 71st Street, this marvelous and newly-renovated duplex residence is distinguished by a refined and quiet sophistication, impressive scale, and superb original architectural detail.

Accessed by a private elevator landing, the large rectangular Gallery opens to three grand entertainment rooms and features an elegantly-curved staircase to the upper floor. A substantial corner Living Room, nearly 37' in length, and the wood-paneled Library both boast wood burning fireplaces and pretty treetop outlooks. The Living Room has the additional benefit of an adjoining high-walled private Terrace. Equally impressive is the very large formal Dining Room with its adjacent Conservatory. A Powder Room and coat closet are conveniently accessible. Nearby, a very spacious and well-appointed state-of-the art chef's Kitchen is supported by a butler's Pantry with a back staircase to the upper level, a Breakfast Room, two Staff Bedrooms with a shared Bathroom, a Laundry Room, and a Powder Room.

Above, the tranquil private quarters feature a Primary Suite that includes a wonderful corner Primary Bedroom with a wood burning fireplace and leafy southern and western outlooks, a Sitting Room/Bedroom currently configured as an Office, two large marble-clad bathrooms, and two well-fitted and very ample closets. There are three additional generously-proportioned Bedrooms, all of which have capacious closets and en-suite baths. Two of the Bedrooms open onto a delightful shared room which is currently configured as a Playroom. Nearby, there is a small Office that also serves as a second Laundry Room.

With southern, western, and northern outlooks, this splendid duplex residence has pleasing and graceful proportions, which lend themselves effortlessly to the notion of elegant entertaining. These are enhanced by soaring high ceilings, grandly-scaled windows, gorgeous herringbone floors, and distinctive period detail. 740 Park Avenue is renowned for its expert and attentive staffing, which includes full-time doormen and porters, as well as a resident manager. Its gorgeous limestone fa ade is complemented by a sublimely elegant lobby. Residents also benefit from a state-of-the-art private fitness center and dedicated storage units. Pets are welcome. Co-exclusive.
