Prestigious and Mint 2 BR 2 BTH w/wbf restored Glamour & Elegance
A Jeweled Home.. a Flawless Diamond.. a Pure Residential Beauty in a Park Avenue Boutique Full Service Building.
535 Park Avenue Coop began in 1909 when a group including bankers, lawyers, and a painter decided to erect an apartment building at Park and 61st. They hired the architect Herbert Lucas, and the New York times reported that the structure would be built “as closely resembling a large private house…”
-The goal in 1909 was to build something palatial, which is reflected in 2020 in Unit 10C ; the redistribution of space and its restored heritage was designed by Danielle Richter and showcases elegance and glamour.
Enter this gracious prewar 2 bedroom 2 bathroom to a gallery of closets that boast antique paneled mirrors like that of Bergdorf Goodman. Leading from the gallery is an impressive foyer with large walls, ideal for the art lover. All rooms emanate from the central foyer/gallery, making this home a perfect layout.
The State of the Art kitchen features natural quartzite stone countertops and counter to ceiling Bianco Dolomite backsplash by Artistic Tile. Custom polished nickel cabinetry by Siematic and stainless steel appliances create a highly stylish and brilliantly designed U-shaped kitchen perfect for preparing large meals. Exhibiting timeless style is the vaulted oven and 5 gas burner cooktop from Le Cornue, the extra-wide sink with a tall gooseneck fixture (positioned underneath an east facing window) and top of the line appliances. A stunning vintage Murano chandelier and Lutron Led recessed lighting adds a modern and classic touch. The ebonized chevron boards are a striking contrast with the silver, white, opaque glass doors and nickel finishes.
Enjoy fine dining and entertaining in the oversized living room featuring West exposure to Park Avenue and North and perfectly positioned between custom bookshelves is a wood-burning fireplace with a handsome mantel. The details of fine molding and custom drapery along with custom electronic shades and custom lighting complete the quality ambiance for lounging and fine to casual entertaining. Finishing touches accented by the exquisite chandeliers, prominently hanging in the living room and dining area.
