Park Avenue Icon, Manhattan, New York


Offered at $19,500,000

In 1929 J.E.R. Carpenter, one of the foremost architects of the early twentieth century, outdid himself when he created a luxurious Manhattan icon overlooking Park Avenue. Heralded as one of the building’s legendary showpieces is the majestic twelve-room haven on the ninth floor. The journey begins from the elevator that opens to unveil a classic vestibule followed by an elegant entrance gallery nearly 20 feet long. From here, the signature main settings are dramatically presented through beautiful wide doorways. The 28-foot-long living room, a luminous west-facing oasis interweaving impeccable craftsmanship and extraordinary views of Park Avenue, is highlighted by an antique fireplace and adjoined by a handsome paneled library. Echoing its grandeur, the generously proportioned dining room also features a romantic woodburning fireplace. Beyond the fashionable ensemble of public reception rooms, the 5,300 square feet of space incorporates a generous-sized kitchen with breakfast room and butler’s pantry adjacent to the dining room. Four private family and guest bedroom areas highlight the stately master suite, a jewellike island of calm boasting a woodburning fireplace, two walk-in closets, and wondrous western and southern exposures. The three additional bedrooms extend a warm welcome with delightful en suite baths and walk-in closets. Three staff bedrooms, two with full baths, are near the laundry room. The prestigious full-service white-glove building includes a fitness center.
