Newly Renovated Overlooking Central Park
Designed by Rosario Candela in 1938, modernized by Ward Bennet in the 1970s, and redesigned by Stonefox in 2021, Residence 7A at 955 Fifth Avenue offers over 2300 square feet of sweeping Central Park views and a brand new renovation of the highest quality and style. Originally a Classic Six with two bedrooms and two maid's rooms, 7A is now configured with a modern sensibility and open loft-like flow.
Architecture and design studio Stonefox renovated the apartment with the finest materials and latest technology while honoring the home's history. With almost 30 feet of park frontage and large windows with direct Central Park views, the grand living room is full of sunlight. A wood burning fireplace, dual seating areas, and discrete recessed art lighting, create the perfect room for entertaining. The dining room with original Candela curved wall and window, features the Bennet era's terrazzo floor and custom stone table for eight. The luminous new kitchen with Celador counter tops, Vermont Imperial Danby backsplash, and top appliances leads to a breakfast room with eastern views of the Carlyle Hotel and a built-in study with inset leather blotter in the desktop. The sumptuous bedroom suite features cerused oak millwork in the dressing rooms and a luxurious en-suite bathroom clad in honed Olympia White Vermont Danby marble. Additional elements include a chic powder room, washer/dryer, Lutron lighting, motorized shades, and all new electrical and AV wiring.
Built in 1938, 955 Fifth Avenue is an elegant and intimate Candela prewar co-op with full service and amenities: 24-hour doormen, resident building manager, landscaped roof terrace with stunning views of Central Park and the cityscape, well-outfitted gym, and bike storage. A private storage room transfers with the apartment. Pieds-a-terre and pets are permitted. 955 Fifth Avenue is located in the most glamorous part of the Upper East Side near wonderful restaurants, Madison Avenue shopping, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and of course Central Park. 50% financing is permitted and there is a 3% flip tax payable by the purchaser.
