Prewar Coop Built 1926 in
| Full Service Doorman With Elevator
Magnificent twelve-room home. This elegant pre-war apartment, in one of Carnegie Hill's most desirable full-service buildings, contains five bedrooms and five bathrooms. The layout is beautifully proportioned and ideal for entertaining, with formal spaces separated from the bedroom wing. The entrance from a private elevator landing is into a generous central gallery, off of which are four gracious sun-filled, generously proportioned reception rooms: a living room with wood burning fireplace, a very large formal dining room, a formal library with wood burning fireplace and a media room: all facing east over Madison Avenue and look out above neighboring buildings with great light and open views. Beautiful and original herringbone floors are throughout, as well as beautifully preserved original architectural details. There is Clive Christian eat-in chef's kitchen, with top range appliances by Viking, Sub-Zero and Miele. An adjoining butler's pantry containing a separate sink and second dishwasher provides convenience for entertaining. A hallway from the gallery leads to five large bedrooms, which all face west with sunny exposures. All of the bathrooms are windowed and feature newly renovated marble floors and walls. There is a maid's room with full bath. Off the gallery, and adjacent to the maids quarters, is a laundry room with side by side Miele washer and dryer, a full-size refrigerator, ample storage, and an adjacent wine closet with a 280 bottle Eurocave cabinet. There are additional Miele washer and dryer facilities in the bedroom wing for added convenience. The apartment has private storage cages in the basement and there is a separate secure bicycle room in the basement of this well staffed and elegant coop. The building is a highly sought after full service white glove cooperative, a block from Central Park, convenient to transportation yet on a quiet stretch of 86th Street near Fifth Avenue.
