Located in the heart of Carnegie Hill, at the corner of Park Avenue and two blocks from Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this high-floor classic 7-room offers grand proportions, a gracious layout, wonderful light and superb storage. The incredibly spacious 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home is located in a highly desirable building designed by renowned architects Schwartz & Gross and provides a gracious separation of entertaining and living spaces and a wonderful flow for entertaining. Oversized windows provides lovely natural light and enhances the home’s scale with spacious rooms and high ceilings. Original architectural details include hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, elegant moldings and a wood-burning fireplace. Meticulously maintained by the same owners for over 50 years, the design captures the elegance of the era with custom-made designed woodwork and detailing throughout by Joseph Aronson; high-end modern, Art Deco designer of the time. Mid-century modern and Bauhaus styles are as widely appealing today and this classic home is a snapshot in time. South-facing windows showcase the tree-lined block below and the architecture landmark Park Avenue Church with its stately proportions and 70-foot spire. Living Room features also include a wood-burning fireplace with marble mantle and custom woodwork including a mid-century modern solid wood window bench. The large formal dining room is appointed with custom opaque glass 1950’s doors and floor-to-ceiling buffet with marble counter and can easily serve entertaining on a large-scale. The very spacious eat-in kitchen with breakfast room, butler’s pantry and powder room is very large and flexible and can be customized as the new owner desires. Pristinely maintained are original Bauhaus style cabinetry and details of the era and a washer and dryer complete the space. A seperate bedroom wing features three beautifully proportioned bedrooms, two full en suite bathrooms and amazing storage that is unseen in most prewar homes. Two south-facing bedrooms feature a Jack and Jill bath and huge walk-in closets. The very quiet third bedroom also boasts two walk-in closets and a full bath en suite. This wonderful bright prewar classic home, in a highly sought-after Carnegie Hill building just off Park Avenue, preserves the beautiful detail and grand proportioned rooms that are eternally appealing and also serve perfectly for entertaining on a large scale.
