Enter off a semi private landing into an impressive, square center gallery with coffered ceilings and 2 coat closets, one which is like a mud room. Straight ahead is the absolutely regal 28 foot living room with wood burning fireplace and stunning views to Park Avenue out of a grand triple window. The bedroom wing includes a spacious secondary bedroom, also facing Park Avenue and the sumptuous primary suite which is now a double bedroom with 2 new beautiful bathrooms! (This can easily be restored to 2 separate bedrooms and bathrooms.)
The bedroom wing also houses a beautiful white marble hallway full bath that can be used as a powder room and is easily accessible to guests.
A couple of intelligent changes have been made to the original layout to accommodate today's lifestyle. The former library is now the formal dining room with a new built-in bar and is large enough for grand dinner parties and family holidays. The original ball room-like formal dining room is now used as a wonderful den with lots of space for informal living.
Next to the den is the bright windowed chef's eat- in kitchen. It is adorned with custom wood cabinetry with some glass fronts, Statuary marble countertops and endless cupboard and counter space. There are 2 sinks, 2 ovens, 2 giant walk-in pantries (one with a full size wine refrigerator) and a large south facing, corner windowed eating area. In a separate wing of the kitchen is the laundry room with extra sink and windowed desk. In addition there is also a staff room with new full bathroom. The staff room has been outfitted with custom built ins and a desk, making a convenient and private home office or potentially a 5th bedroom.
This special home has 10-foot ceilings throughout, restored original oak floors, skim coated walls, whisper-quiet Thermopane insulated windows, newly installed central air, custom closets, a Sonos sound system, and heated floors in the en-suite baths.
Located at 78th Street, 876 Park Avenue is a white glove, full-service, pet-friendly cooperative with 24-hour doormen, resident manager, brand new fitness center, bicycle room, laundry room, and an individual storage cage for each apartment. Designed by Rouse and Gladstone in 1917 with only 24 apartments, it is a very elegant building on a prime Park Avenue block.
