New York’s Park Avenue may arguably be one of the world’s most famous streets. It is home to some of the city’s most iconic landmarks, not to mention its most prestigious real estate. This newly listed $25 million apartment, elegantly poised on the northwest corner of Park Avenue and East 73rd Street, is a spirited celebration of Park Avenue cachet.
Co-listed by brokers Lisa Tarnopol Deslauriers and Linda Reiner of Coldwell Banker Warburg and Nikki Field of Sotheby’s International Realty—East Side Manhattan Brokerage, the classic residence features nearly 100 feet of prime Park Avenue-facing frontage, comprising the entire ninth floor of the landmark 1929 red-brick and limestone tower designed by architect Rosario Candela. Among its signatures are gracious proportions (approximately 6,500 square feet) and 16 total rooms, including six ensuite bedrooms, and seven full bathrooms, along with two half-baths. Opulent detailing, 11-foot ceilings, three wood-burning fireplaces and 42 oversized, sound-proof windows with four exposures lend a sense of gravitas to the interiors.
If discretion and exclusivity are what the next owner seeks, they will find it in this Upper East Side abode. The apartment provides a private elevator opening to a grand 40-foot gallery, complete with custom, handmade, stenciled wood floors. The living room overlooks Park Avenue, and is anchored by a gracious marble-mantled fireplace. Adjacent, an oak-paneled library beckons with a fireplace of its own. A formal dining room with space to seat 20 guests, and yet another fireplace offers an ideal space for sophisticated entertaining. The remodeled kitchen has a large eat-in dining area, a butler’s pantry, a wine cooler, and luxury appliances, including an 8-burner Viking range and Sub Zero refrigerator.
Mostly concentrated in the southern wing of the home, the main bedrooms afford endless flexibility while the primary bedroom suite boasts a dressing room that would be the envy of New York’s most fashionable. In the nucleus of the home is a stairwell, where the lower floor (featuring a staff room) and the upper floor (with two more staff rooms, plus laundry facilities), are accessed.
The Rosario Candela building is a full-service, white-glove co-op building comprising only 18 apartments on 18 floors. It’s situated in the heart of the Upper East Side, blocks away from Central Park, numerous museums, and some of the best restaurants and luxury shopping on Fifth and Madison Avenues.
