This fabulous corner duplex on Park Avenue has it all – approximately 2400 square feet of stunning contemporary design; abundant open Park Avenue views; extraordinarily spacious, light filled rooms; a wonderful location in Carnegie Hill and an elegant serenity characteristic of the best pre war buildings.
Meticulously finished with ivory toned Venetian plaster throughout, this modern, pristine and beautifully detailed apartment seamlessly combines the feeling of loft living with gracious practicality, perfect for refined entertaining or quiet enjoyment.
The first level foyer opens into the expansive living area that extends over 43ft in length and enjoys views of Park Avenue through three oversized, triple hung windows that flood the entire space with light. A home office, with expertly crafted bookshelves and cabinets in African Anigre, is tucked in the North end of this lovely room while a gas fireplace with a contemporary limestone surround anchors the South end.
A spacious dining room off the open living area features a wall of custom Anigre cabinets opposite another huge triple hung window. The adjacent corner kitchen is a modern delight. Uncommonly large with both East and South facing windows over Park Avenue, it sports custom Bulthaup cabinets, top of the line European appliances and granite countertops.
Off the foyer is a walk in closet with plenty of room for coats and storage and a handsome powder room subtly burnished with gold leaf.
The open stairway from the living area leads to the distinctly tranquil second level.
The lavishly scaled master bedroom suite comprises a very spacious bedroom, an exceptional corner dressing room with two large windows overlooking Park Avenue, extensive custom built Anigre closets, and an enormous and light-filled limestone bathroom with double sinks, bath, walk in shower and a separate water closet.
An additional bedroom suite, also with Park Avenue views, features a dressing area with two sinks, separate water closet and bath, as well as beautiful custom cabinetry of Macassar Ebony. There is also a separate, walk-in laundry room.
