First offering of a truly majestic, 11-room, 4-bedroom prewar residence in a top, full-service condominium, with all major rooms directly overlooking Central Park.
The Fifth Floor at 817 Fifth Avenue retains all the elegance and perfection of its original classic prewar layout, offering a flawless flow of entertaining and living space. Directly overlooking Central Park is an oversized formal living room with a wood-burning fireplace, a formal dining room and a glamorous corner Master bedroom suite. With approximately 50 feet of park frontage, all these rooms offer spectacular Central Park views through unusually tall 6-foot windows.
Perfectly situated adjacent to the living room is a huge library/den, and all along the building's Northern facade are 3 additional bedrooms, each of which has marvelously grand proportions, with abundant windows and light and overlooking beautiful, tree-lined 63rd Street. The windowed, eat-in kitchen area is massive, including a butler's pantry and breakfast room. Currently used as a sitting room, one chamber could be repurposed to function as a home office or additional bedroom, as per your needs. In addition, there is a service room, a laundry room and there are 4 full-windowed bathrooms with the ability to add another powder room, if so desired. Complementing the regal space is spectacular prewar detail throughout, including high ceilings, decorative molding and original hardwood floors, herringbone-patterned in the living room, dining room, master bedroom and library/den. Central air-conditioning is permitted and there is a private storage unit located in the building's basement.
817 Fifth Avenue, commanding the South corner of Fifth Avenue and 63rd Street, is one of Fifth Avenue's most coveted prewar condominiums. Built in 1925 by George B. Post & Sons in the Italian Renaissance style, it has only 14 residences over 15 floors, with a full-time lobby attendant and a live-in resident manager. In Manhattan's most elegant and desirable location, it is surrounded by the city's finest shopping and dining, and of course its most glorious park. Pets are welcomed.
