Commissioned by the Rockefeller family in 1936, this Landmark building was built in the International Style and has been described "the most thoroughly considered residential design of its time". This architectural masterpiece offers timeless elegance with post-modern flair in the cultural heart of the city. Just off from Fifth Avenue with MoMA at your doorstep and Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, the Theatre District and Central Park all within a short distance, this spacious and sunny two bedroom, two bath apartment is perfect as either an elegant full-time residence or pied a terre. A gracious entry foyer opens onto the large living room with custom built-in cabinetry anchored by a decorative fireplace and framed by a dramatic near floor-to-ceiling steel casement window. Off the living room, the dining room with its over 6-foot cylindrical bow window makes dining in a pleasure and when not in the mood to cook, the reknowned restaurant, Michael's is in the building. The windowed kitchen is accessible from both the entry as well as the dining area and has a separate service entrance. The pindrop quiet master bedroom with en suite bath as well as the second bedroom (currently used as a den) are south-facing, light-filled and provide views of the building's picturesque garden. The Rockefeller Apartments is an iconic residential complex comprised of two buildings in midtown adjoined by an elegant private garden. It is a premier full service building with attended 24 hr doorman, friendly resident building manager, central laundry and a common garden. Pets and pied-a-terres are permitted. 2% Flip Tax paid by Buyer.
