This striking, loft-like contemporary apartment is detailed with superb materials and finishes such as burled Tropical Olive (Mozambique) wood veneers, honed Roman Basalt stone floors and Venetian plaster walls. The commanding, panoramic open west and north views across Central Park toward Central Park West and the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis reservoir from the living areas are framed by large picture windows in this corner one to two (originally three) bedroom apartment. Perfect for entertaining, the expansive living/dining area and adjacent media/guest room are complete with a sleek gas fireplace and a windowed wet bar that has an onyx pass-through counter and wine and bar refrigerators. The large custom kitchen continues the fine finishes of burled wood and honed basalt. The east facing master suite has a master bedroom and office that could be two bedrooms. The two and half bathrooms feature Arctic Grey marble and glass. There is handsome built-in cabinetry, custom lighting and a built-in sound system throughout. 1001 Fifth is an architecturally significant post-modern Philip Johnson/John Burgee-designed building located across from the Metropolitan Museum and features easy access to shopping, restaurants and many museums and cultural institutions as well as a full-time concierge, doorman and live-in superintendent. Pied-a-terres and pets are welcome. 2% flip tax paid by purchaser.
