Exquisite design and majestic details create a setting of exceptional luxury for lavish entertaining and exceedingly comfortable living. With classical elegance, contemporary amenities, and a rare sophistication, the residence is planned around grand spaces for large gatherings, with bedrooms located in two separate wings.
Opening from the private elevator vestibule, the resplendent, round foyer invites guests into the spectacular 32-foot corner living room complete with cove ceilings, fireplace and oversized windows. The adjacent formal dining room is sized for stately entertaining and shares the living room’s views overlooking Park Avenue.
Off the living room is a spacious den/media room, and beyond that, a distinguished library/office with more of the fine custom cabinetry that is a hallmark of this exceptional home. The light-filled, eat-in kitchen is equipped for large-scale entertaining with top-of-the-line appliances, dual islands, wine storage and generous prep and cupboard space.
A private hallway leads to the sublime primary suite, a tranquil retreat complete with spa-style bath, dressing area, generous closets and large windows facing Park Avenue. A second ensuite bedroom, right across the hall, could be used as a private sitting room, study or meditation space. On the apartment’s opposite wing there are three more
bedrooms, one with its own sitting room and dressing area, plus a shared central lounge.
Additional features include an ensuite staff room, a large laundry room and two powder rooms, plus lustrous hardwood floors, custom millwork, custom lighting and four-zone central air conditioning. Ideally situated at 78th and Park Avenue, the neoclassical landmark building was designed by George and Edward Blum, built in 1912 and meticulously updated. Amenities include a doorman, resident manager, state-of-the-art gym, bike room and basement storage, including two private storage units. Pets are welcome.
With 5,700 square feet of living space, this remarkable home is an elegant retreat of incomparable grace and enduring beauty.
