New on market and just grand! Remarkable views of Central Park and beyond are only a small part of what makes this a "One-of-a-Kind" prewar apartment. This full-floor residence at Fifth Avenue and 77th Street was originally built as an 11 room home in 1925. Designed by an artist with meticulous attention to detail, this entire high floor underwent a complete transformation capitalizing on views and the irresistible play of light and sky. Stepping from the elevator directly into the dramatic central gallery, the immediate north and west views high above the park's treetops are mesmerizing. The grand, corner living room / library with six large windows, approximately 10 foot high ceilings, exquisite floors, and wood burning fireplace is perfectly suited for grand soirees or scrabble for two. Large, park-facing windows in the almost square, formal dining room delight dinner guests with dramatic sunsets and Central Park's firework displays. The sleek, restaurant-plan kitchen, inviting to all, was designed for chefs and events both great and small. The separate bedroom wing has a double master bedroom suite, quite grand and completely unique. With two full spa-like baths and dressing area, three exposures, seven windows and superb views including the Carlyle Hotel's tower and a taste of the Park, this serene oasis is further enhanced with a beautiful skyline view south. The large additional south windows in the master bedroom are unique to this floor. There are two more master bedrooms with baths en suite. A powder room is perfectly located off the central gallery. Systematized for the 21st century, nothing was overlooked in the creation of this special and supremely comfortable home. This apartment is one of only 19 residences in an outstanding Italianate palazzo-styled building with superior staff including door and elevator attendants. Pets and pied-a-terre are welcome.
