Description

A captivating and timeless home with all of the historic charm of a pre-war building on iconic Park Avenue, with a bonus large private storage unit.
An entry foyer welcomes you into a cozy yet elegant living room flooded with natural light from extra large windows and 9.5 foot high-beamed ceilings. Original oak herringbone floors and a wood burning fireplace are rare assets, providing warmth and comfort unlike any other.
Relax and enjoy postcard city views from three exposures: Look north to a striking up-close sight of the Chrysler building from both the dining room and the kitchen, east to the beautiful brownstones of 37th Street and unobstructed views, and south to watch the mesmerizing light shows of the Empire State Building.
The apartment features a balanced mix of old and new. Through a quaint archway, you'll find a modern kitchen featuring state-of-the-art appliances: Liebherr refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, and a Bertazzoni range and microwave.
In the sleek windowed bathroom, classic Carrara marble meets modern luxuries, including a deep soaking whirlpool/jet stream massage tub.

The light and airy ambience continues into the tranquil bedrooms, which also have high ceilings and an abundance of windows. The corner main bedroom has a large walk-in closet.
55 Park Avenue is a historic co-op, built in 1923 by the Fred F. French Company. Set on a tree-lined block, the building provides a 24-hour doorman and elevator operator, a live-in resident manager, excellent staff, and a central laundry room. There are only two apartments per floor, with mail and package delivery to your semi-private landing. A large private storage cage is included in the sale. The central location offers ideal dining, entertainment and transportation options. Pets are permitted upon approval. There is a 2% flip tax to be paid by the buyer, and a $272/mo assessment for the building mortgage, which matures in October 2021.
