Exceptional space, sunlight and designer style fill this regal three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom residence in a sought-after Park Avenue cooperative.
Triple exposures illuminate the approximately 2,500-square-foot home with marvelous light. Inlaid herringbone hardwood floors run underfoot, and wide baseboards and crown moldings add an air of elegance throughout. A formal entry gallery makes a refined first impression while the large living room invites you to relax in front of the stone fireplace and Park Avenue views. Across the foyer, a bold coffered ceiling and sculptural chandelier top the formal dining room, and the adjacent library provides an excellent flow for entertaining. In the sunny eat-in kitchen, gleaming marble counters and subway tile surround custom cabinetry, and the top-notch stainless steel appliances include a vented Viking range. An oversized pantry, staff room, bathroom and separate service entry add convenience.
The home's private quarters are set down a quiet hallway. The corner master suite features lovely vistas down Park, three extra-large closets and an en suite bathroom filled with floor-to-ceiling rose marble, a glass shower and stylish gold-tone hardware. Another bedroom suite boasts an en suite bath with a large tub-shower and handsome gray marble and tile. A third bedroom accesses the master bath with a powder room close by. Central air, abundant extra closets, an in-unit washer-dryer and storage provide effortless ease in this outstanding Park Avenue showplace.
