A Fifth Avenue Masterpiece with open Central Park and Reservoir Views, this sprawling 12 room Pre-War Cooperative is pristine and ready to move in due to a recent full renovation by Ferguson Shamamian. The interiors were meticulously curated by the world-renowned designer, Bunny Williams, the distinguished expert in creating homes that are as grand and stylish as they are comfortable and serene. This residence is far from the exception, featuring finest quality finishes throughout and an atmosphere of sophistication that can be compared to nothing else available.
Stepping into the private jewel box 14th floor elevator landing, one is welcomed by spectacular light bouncing from the glossy custom patinaed Venetian Plaster adorning the walls of a double-wide Gallery and pouring through to illuminate the rest of the open yet classic floorplan. The main living space showcases direct Central Park views through 6 large tilt and turn windows, outfitted with automatic Lutron shades and custom dressings. This room is a master of refinement and balance accented with a woodburning fireplace and stone mantle. The walls of the Living Room are clad with custom coverings that are restrained but quietly luxurious and found throughout the apartment, with each room featuring a color and texture scheme as unique and beautiful as the next. Also throughout the home is pristine wide-plank Oak flooring accented by custom molding and classic millwork. A passageway between the Living Room and Den conveniently features a wet bar and functional storage, perfectly suited to entertain. Walking into the large Library, a fresh and calming shift in color intentionally sets an atmosphere for relaxation. This corner room features an entertainment wall with custom built in shelving and extra walk-in storage space.
Off the main Gallery, is a Formal Dining Room. The whimsical De Gournay wallpapered Dining Room is well proportioned for a serious dinner party or comfortable family dining together.
The large Chef’s Kitchen is accessible through either the dining service door or main entrance and boasts custom cabinetry artfully designed by Ferguson Shamamian and top of the line fixtures by WaterWorks. Custom marble countertops accent the cabinetry and fixtures perfectly. Two Sub-Zero refrigerators seamlessly blend into the surrounding cabinetry with matching surface millwork. The star of the room is the vibrant Lacanche 7-burner Range and Dual-Oven and makes this kitchen a true chef’s dream. This heart of the home is complete with a sun filled and bright Breakfast Room, with built-in bench storage and wall to wall windows.
The Bedroom Wing includes 5 bedrooms, a Staff Suite, and a beautifully balanced Primary Bedroom Suite. This serene sanctuary showcases another wood-burning Fireplace and a handsome Home Office/Study. The Spa Bathroom boasts a marble top double vanity, oversized bathtub, walk in shower, and two Dressing Rooms. As an added touch, select closets in the primary wing have interiors built of Cedar Wood. The conveniently located Laundry Room spans approximately 20 feet and features a washing basin, storage and top-quality Washer and Dryer.
