Sun-filled, elegant 7 room apartment with brand new, state-of-the-art windows throughout. Located at the corner of Fifth Avenue at 83rd Street, directly across the street from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park, in one of the city's finest full-service cooperatives, this spacious apartment is the perfect full-time or pied a terre New York City residence. A generous central gallery connects the living room, dining room, and bedroom hall. The flow is elegant, yet comfortable. The oversized living room has a handsome wood-burning fireplace as the focal point of this exquisite room. Pre-war details, and the two large windows bring in an abundance of natural light, making this the perfect place for entertaining. The large-scale proportions of the dining room allowed the current owners to use this space as a multi-purpose room for dining and a study/sitting room bathed in southern light with views. The pantry was added to the recently updated kitchen, creating a large, modern eat-in kitchen illuminated by brilliant southern light and Midtown views. A guest room and bath are off the kitchen, as is a separate staff/laundry room. The expansive master bedroom has double exposures to the north and east, beautiful built-ins, and an exquisite en suite bath with tub and separate shower. The second bedroom also boasts great proportions and an abundance of closets. The second full-bath is conveniently located off the bedroom hall and can also be used as a powder room for guests. The entire apartment is in beautiful condition and lovingly maintained. Built in 1926, 1016 Fifth Avenue is a stunning limestone and beige brick building with a distinctive marble lobby. There is a resident manager, and full-time attended door. The building permits pied a terre ownership and is pet-friendly. There is a renovated gym and additional storage.
