This refined and elegant 8 room apartment is located in a top-flight Park Avenue building in a premier Upper East Side location. This sun-flooded apartment lends itself perfectly to gracious entertaining and comfortable family living. A large and spacious columned foyer leads directly to a well-proportioned living room with a wood-burning fireplace, and immediately adjacent is a gracious formal dining room. Also accessed off the foyer is a handsome library (which could be easily converted to a third master bedroom) which is paneled and lined with books, and has a powder room/full bathroom en suite. Down a long hall there is a lovely master bedroom suite with a dressing area with ample walk-in closets and a full bath. Also on the bedroom corridor there is a second master bedroom with a full bath en suite. At the other end of the apartment is an eat-in chef's kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a washer/dryer. Two large staff rooms (which could also be used as guest rooms, or as a home office and a private exercise room) and a large full bath completes this portion of the apartment.
The apartment is characterized by its sought-after architectural details, such as high ceilings, herringbone hardwood floors, and period moldings. All the principal rooms in the apartment face south over a tree-lined street, and get abundant light and enjoy vistas of the Park Avenue Armory, a distinguished Manhattan landmark building which is directly across the street.
655 Park Avenue is a full-service co-operative apartment building, and spans the entire block between 67th and 68th streets on Park Avenue. There is tenant storage in the building, Pets are welcome.
