This marvelous sun-filled and extremely elegant corner duplex is the epitome of Upper East Side chic. The sprawling 16 into 14 room apartment boasts very grandly scaled rooms that are ideal for major entertaining as well as for gracious living. Distinguished by a versatile plan, noteworthy architectural details include soaring high ceilings, immaculate hardwood floors, hand carved moldings & period fire mantle pieces. However, it is the plethora of glorious open exposures over the broad sweep of Park Ave and 79th St that are most distinctive and unique.
The very impressive Gallery features a sweeping circular staircase & opens onto a huge corner Living Room. There is also a handsome Library & a lovely and large Dining Room with double exposures. Each of these impressive public rooms feature a wood burning fireplace. A Powder Room is accessible from the Entry Hall as is a nice large Guest Bedroom with ensuite Bath. The sizable Butler's Pantry and lovingly restored original Kitchen adjoin a charming Breakfast Room, all with pretty street outlooks.
Upstairs there is an exceedingly pretty corner Master Bedroom with a large Bath & very ample closets & a Dressing Area. The current Master Bedroom Sitting Room was originally a big second Bedroom also with ensuite Bath & Dressing Area, and is able to be easily restored as such. Additionally there are two more cheery Bedrooms situated along Park Avenue, with ensuite Baths.
Three Staff Rooms & two Baths are accessed off of the upstairs back corridor. Additionally there is a walk-in sauna that was previously a Staff Room & most conveniently there is a backstairs. This area easily lends itself to reconfiguration should an additional Bedroom be required, or to supplement the dressing quarters of the Master Suite.
Embodying glamour and sophistication, this divine apartment is situated in a white-glove prewar cooperative where residents enjoy access to a fitness center, squash court, basketball court & private storage.
