In one of JER Carpenter's most iconic Buildings, 1148 Fifth Avenue, 12C is a grand light-filled 9-Room residence characterized by 10-foot ceiling heights, a highly prized Classic layout, and generously proportioned rooms. Gracefully arranged around the central entrance foyer measuring 20'x8', are the Living Room, Dining Room, Library, and Kitchen, defining the elegant yet simple circulation pattern that distinguished Carpenter among his peers. From a semi-private landing one enters the foyer and has an impressive view down the length of the gallery to the living room and its original, wood burning fireplace. To the right are views over 96th Street and the treetops of Central Park and to your left are the original French doors opening into the dining room which enjoys direct sunlight from the south. The original hardwood floors, doors, and hardware are in lovely condition and found throughout the main rooms. There are wonderful side views of Central Park from the living room, library and two bedrooms.
The kitchen has been opened into the large butler's pantry to create a huge eat-in kitchen with generous storage. The two staff rooms share a full bathroom and have been preserved in the original format, perfect for 2 home offices. There is a washer/dryer and a large pantry closet that currently accommodates a large wine cellar.
At the east end of the foyer is the bedroom hallway with three large bedrooms and two bathrooms. The building has a precedent for allowing, with board approval, the addition of a 4th bathroom plus powder room in the C-line. There are bountiful closets. The primary bedroom faces north with partial Central Park views and has three walk-in closets and an en-suite bathroom. The two secondary bedrooms currently share a bathroom.
The apartment transfers with a storage unit. There is bicycle storage, a new fitness center, and the building welcomes pets, 50% financing, and Central AC! There is a 2% flip tax.
1148 Fifth is a white-glove building located in the Carnegie Hill Historic District overlooking Central Park and the 95th Street playground. The building has a full-time doorman, ample staff, and a live-in resident manager. The shops and restaurants of Madison Avenue are nearby as is Mount Sinai Hospital.
