Old world elegance abound in this grand and gracious 5-room corner home situated on the Upper East Side’s ‘Gold Coast’ in a boutique white glove Park Avenue co-op. Overlooking the elegant thoroughfare and the beautiful Park Avenue malls, the apartment offers a front row seat to the splendor of the seasons. With grand east-facing picture windows lining the formal expanse and corner master suite, the apartment’s grand scale is complemented by abundant natural light. The expansive apartment retains the original details and scale that make prewar construction so desirable including high-beamed ceilings, hardwood floors (herringbone in the formal expanse), crown moldings, built-in bookshelves, kitchen swing door, oversized picture windows and a wood-burning fireplace. An open loft-like formal expanse (side by side living room and formal dining room), grand entry foyer and expanded eat-in kitchen provides this elegant layout with a fabulous flow for entertaining on a large-scale. The very spacious and recently upgraded eat-in kitchen includes a windowed breakfast area, hardwood floors and abundant new counter space and white lacquer cabinetry complemented by a new glass tile backsplash. Stainless appliances include a Sub Zero refrigerator, Asko dishwasher, Jenn Air 4 burner range oven and GE Profile built-in microwave. A laundry closet with full size washer/dryer completes the space. The sun-filled and very large corner master suite is sublime with two exposures (south / east) , three oversized windows, beamed ceilings, built-in bookshelves, abundant closet storage (including a walk-in closet and overhead cubby storage) and a master bathroom bathed in marble (floors, walls, mirror frame and surfaces) with a huge grand picture window exposing the tree-lined block below. The spacious second bedroom is extremely quiet with a large closet and an adjacent full renovated bathroom with marble shower. This wonderful sun-filled prewar elegant home, in a highly sought-after Park Avenue building, preserves the beautiful detail and grand proportioned rooms that are eternally appealing and also serve perfectly for entertaining on a large scale. With a combination of wonderful details including fabulous views and light, grand-scaled rooms, oversized windows and the apartment’s superb location this home is an ideal property to create your dream home. Sorry, no dogs.
