The rental offering of the triplex within The Berwind Mansion at 828 Fifth Avenue is completely unique and unlike any other rental possibility currently or recently available. It is unique in its grandeur and corner location providing every room with a beautiful exposure and in it's breathtaking, tasteful decoration and restoration. It is rare to find the scale and elegance of a mansion living in an intimate and private building with full time doorman and staff.
Located on the southeast corner of Fifth Avenue and East 64th Street, 828 Fifth Avenue runs 30 feet along Fifth Avenue, directly opposite the historic Central Park Zoo and facing Central Park. The 64th Street lot frontage is 110 feet wide along one of the finest townhouse blocks in Manhattan.
828 Fifth is a distinguished Edwardian Georgian mansion constructed of limestone and brick with an impressive bowed faade facing Fifth Avenue. The grand two-story rusticated limestone base and arched entryway with polished granite columns distinguish the residence from its neighbors. A limestone sidewalk moat with scrolled bronze grills adds to the architectural interest and provides privacy and light to the floors below the street. The interiors were originally decorated by the French firm of Jules Allard & Son to be nothing less than a palace. Remarkably, many original details remain throughout, including those on the majestic second floor, with the Louis XV-style ballroom and an oak-paneled sitting room in the bowed front overlooking Central Park.
The house is currently divided into five apartments and structured as a cooperative with condominium rules.
There is a full time doorman and a building manager as well as a representative of the owner on premises.
The elegant, shared building lobby contains original details of the French Renaissance style. The building has recently been completely modernized, with all major systems fully updated or replaced. The grand facade has been entirely restored to its original splendor.
The Triplex that is now offered for rent is comprised of the entire second, third and fourth floors. The living room/ballroom, paneled Fifth Avenue dining room, reception rotunda and a sleek, modern kitchen facing the trees along 64th Street occupy the grand second floor of the mansion. The third and fourth floors include four gracious bedrooms, large elegant bathrooms and dressing rooms, and a library/media room.
The triplex was restored and renovated by renowned designer Alberto Pinto to the highest standards and in keeping with the original elegance of the building. This is a co-exclusive.
