This grand, 8-room home features enormous rooms, oversized windows, high ceilings and grand Park Avenue frontage from four major rooms. In the same family for over 50 years, the home is now ready for your personal touch.
A semi-private elevator landing opens into a gracious foyer that leads into a long entry gallery, connecting one to the public and private quarters of the home. The massive 30' by 15' living room looks west onto Park Avenue and features a wood burning fireplace and herringbone floors. The formal dining room, directly across from the living room, provides for an entertaining expanse of over 50 feet. A butler's pantry off the dining room leads into the windowed eat-in kitchen and 2 staff rooms, one with a full bath.
The private bedroom wing has excellent separation from the public spaces. All 3 bedrooms overlook the lovely Park Avenue median and are graced with large windows drawing wonderful western light. The generous primary bedroom features an en-suite windowed bathroom as well as two large walk-in closets. Two additional bedrooms, each with a walk-in closet, are serviced by a shared windowed bathroom. A powder room or additional full bath may be added with board approval.
