This splendid 9-room residence is located in one of Rosario Candela's finest white-glove cooperatives. Overlooking the landmarked townhouses of Carnegie Hill, and flooded by light, apartment 11A has a gracious layout that offers distinct areas for living and entertaining. Most of the spacious and elegant major rooms face Park Avenue and enjoy open views from oversized windows. A private elevator landing with a marble floor leads to a massive 27-foot gallery with restored original six panel mahogany doors with stunning original brass olive hinges and original brass hardware. A set of paneled mahogany French doors leads to a grand living room with a wood-burning fireplace and open eastern views over Carnegie Hill. The exquisitely paneled library (which could easily revert to its original third bedroom function) offers luxurious entertaining space for intimate gatherings or cozy nights at home. The grand scaled dining room is also accessed from the gallery and provides an impressive backdrop for dinner parties. It has a large west-facing corner window and a china closet. The windowed eat-in kitchen features top of the line appliances: 48-inch Sub-Zero refrigerator and under-counter Sub-Zero wine fridge, a Miele dishwasher, and an incredible professional, vented 60-inch Viking stove with six burners, a griddle, and two ovens. There are three staff rooms; one is currently used as an office, the other two as a charming two-bedroom suite with a renovated bath. The other private quarters are on a separate hallway, and feature two large Park Avenue facing bedrooms. The wonderful primary bedroom has open city views, ample closets, and a large newly renovated bathroom with separate spa shower and 65-inch Waterworks Empire soaking tub. The second bedroom, also with eastern vistas over the pretty townhouse rooftops of 95th street, shares a windowed, renovated bathroom with the library. Extra infrastructure upgrades are plentiful.
