Magnificent City Views

By AP Connolly

Imagine a total of 5,500 square feet of living space occupying the entire 11th floor of this magnificent building. It’s possible. Built in 1922, 485 Park Avenue is an exceptionally run full-service co-op, considered the gem of Park Avenue.

Off a private landing, enter a grand gallery that opens to the formidable, regal living room. Measuring over 33 feet long and nearly 25 feet wide, this stunning room with 11-foot ceilings features a marble fireplace, new herringbone floors, custom ornate moldings, and floor-to-ceiling French door windows with expansive Juliet balconies overlooking Park Avenue. Off the living room through French doors is the South and Park Avenue facing corner library with oversized windows letting light stream in. The library also boasts a fireplace, powder room, and wet bar with an extra refrigerator.

The oversized corner formal dining room faces north and onto Park Avenue and has cove ceilings, a fireplace, and antique mirrors. It is connected to the kitchen through a vast butler’s pantry with an extra sink and dishwasher. The eat-in chef’s kitchen features a marble checkered tile floor, a Thermador refrigerator, a Wolf double oven with six burners, a grill, and a Sub-zero wine cooler.

With four bedrooms and 4.5 baths, the primary bedroom faces East and South, providing light all day. In addition, there is a large walk-in closet and en-suite primary bathroom with plenty of room to add the double vanity. Two bright secondary bedrooms boast substantial walk-in closets and en-suite bathrooms. Completing the bedroom wing of the home is another bedroom, a large office currently set up as a home gym, and a small, windowed office.

With minimal maintenance and the excellent financials of the co-op, this apartment offers what every buyer is looking for today in this high-interest rate environment: Excellent value. 

In addition, the apartment features a laundry room with a vented washer, dryer, and sink, unbelievable storage throughout the apartment, central AC, soaring ceilings, and beautiful hardwood floors.
