Peaceful, private, and rarely-available, Residence #11 is one of only 15 full-floor apartments at the acclaimed 891 Park Avenue. Perched high above one of the most desirable stretches of Manhattan's most well-known street, east/west exposures flood the apartment with natural sunlight through massive french windows accentuated by 9+ foot beamed ceilings.
Step off the elevator onto your private landing before entering this gracious 2 Bedroom home. From the formal foyer, your eyes are immediately captured by a 23-foot long living room centered around a wood-burning fireplace and sumptuous built-ins accentuated by dramatic cove & recessed lighting. The living room is framed by oversized windows showcasing sweeping views of Park Avenue and the surrounding architecture that is quintessential to the Upper East Side. The formal living room also features a bult-in bar with Sub Zero wine fridge, rich herringbone floors, and extensive wall space to display fine art & collectibles.
The living room leads into a wood-paneled dining area that shares these one-of-a-kind Park Avenue vistas. Off the dining area is a spacious windowed kitchen featuring Gaggenau, Viking, Miele and Sub Zero appliances & abundant storage throughout.
Residence #11's sleeping quarters are located down a hallway leading to the eastern wing of the residence. Past a home office with hidden Miele washer/dryer, the eastern wing plays host to a guest bedroom with sunny southern exposure and a marble guest bathroom with walk-in rainfall shower & body jets. The remainder of the eastern wing is devoted to the king-sized primary bedroom suite which boasts ample built-in storage, windowed en suite bath, and a 7-foot deep walk in closet.
Built in 1931 and designed by architect Arthur Paul Hess, 891 Park Avenue is one of few intimate boutique cooperatives with a first rate staff that offers full-floor privacy for every resident.
