Elegant Design & Exquisite Detail

By AP Connolly

Spanning the entire 8th floor of one of Park Avenue’s premier cooperatives, this magnificent, four-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bathroom corner residence is a fine example of renowned architect J.E.R Carpenter’s elegant design, stately proportions and exquisite detail. The apartment is beautifully configured, with gracious private spaces separated from grand entertaining rooms, and is bathed in abundant light from enormous windows facing east onto Park Avenue and south onto 65th Street. From hand-cast Butler hardware to the finest custom millwork and finishes, every detail honors the timeless sophistication of this pre-war masterpiece.

A private elevator landing opens to a beautiful entrance gallery. An arched doorway leads to the dramatic expanse of side-by-side living and dining rooms exquisitely paneled in rich pine. The two rooms span more than 37 feet along Park Avenue with sunlight streaming in from double windows facing east. The living room features a wood-burning fireplace with an intricately carved mantle, coffered ceiling, built-in bookcases and a recessed media cabinet concealed behind antique glass paneled doors. The neighboring formal dining room provides a sumptuous setting for large-scale entertaining and can be separated from the living room by two floor-to-ceiling folding pine doors.

A hallway leads to the four bedrooms, each with en-suite marble baths, abundant closets and custom built-in storage. The spectacular corner primary bedroom has a wood-burning fireplace and enjoys lovely views east and south, and forms a suite with the adjacent study, handsomely appointed and with a built-in desk overlooking Park Avenue. The windowed, eat-in kitchen features beautiful cypress wood cabinetry and Statuario marble countertops, and is superbly equipped with a 48-inch SubZero refrigerator, 8-burner vented Viking range and oven, Miele dishwasher, Uline wine refrigerator and SubZero ice machine. Four staff rooms adjacent to the kitchen were reconfigured to create a hallway with a second SubZero refrigerator, a large home office, a full bathroom and a spacious laundry room.

A rare and extraordinary addition to this offering is a sun-flooded, private art studio/home office on the building’s top floor with access to the common roof deck, and a separate cedar-lined room with a skylight and window.
