Perfectly situated on Fifth Avenue's Museum Mile in the heart of Carnegie Hill, this meticulously renovated 9-into-8 room apartment boasts beautiful open city views and glorious natural light high up on the 14th floor.
A semi-private elevator landing leads to the home's gracious 20-foot gallery, from which the living room, library, kitchen, and bedroom wing are accessed. The living room faces north and is bathed in natural light and features an oblique view of Central Park as well as a wood-burning fireplace, and leads to the south-facing formal dining room. The eat-in kitchen features custom cabinetry, marble countertops, two Sub-Zero refrigerators, a Miele dishwasher, a Sub-Zero wine refrigerator, a Wolf stovetop, and a Viking wall-oven with a warming drawer. A home office or fourth bedroom with an en-suite windowed bathroom, as well as a separate service entrance with washer & dryer, complete the southwest corridor of the apartment.
The master bedroom with en-suite windowed bathroom and two walk-in closets, as well as two generously-sized bedrooms (one with dual exposure) and an additional windowed bathroom, comprise the separate and private bedroom corridor.
Other notable features throughout include central air conditioning, beautiful herringbone and plank hardwood floors, custom cabinetry, paneling and millwork, as well as integrated speakers.
