From an elegant semi-private entry one enters the spacious foyer of this large, light-filled Classic Six room pre-war residence at the prestigious Millan House. With a gracious layout, perfectly proportioned rooms, and ceiling heights exceeding nine feet, this inviting home features all of the hallmarks of elegant pre-war living. The foyer is flanked by a large living room with a wood-burning fireplace and a beautifully proportioned dining room with Parquet de Versailles flooring, offering an impressive 48-foot expanse, perfect for gracious entertaining. The original butler's pantry leads to the sizable kitchen, separate laundry room, and large staff room with a full bathroom. These spaces can be easily combined to create a fabulous eat-in kitchen. The two generous master bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms. All original pre-war details have been maintained throughout the apartment and the floors have been perfectly restored. The apartment benefits from tremendous light through its oversized casement windows with the south-facing rooms overlooking the lovely courtyard below.
Designed by architect Andrew J. Thomas and built by John D. Rockefeller in 1931, Millan House consists of two separate buildings connected by an Italianate garden courtyard with a fountain and charming seating area. With just 59 apartments, this full service pre-war building maintains two full-time doormen, a resident manager plus additional staff.
