Located in one of Fifth Avenue's most desirable cooperatives is this renovated, sprawling 5-6 bedroom apartment facing Central Park. Upon entering, from your private vestibule, one is immediately drawn to the greenery and Central Park views which include the newly landscaped beautiful Rhododendron Mile, visible through the many oversized windows along Fifth Avenue. The large reception gallery of this high second floor home opens on to three grand entertaining rooms: a magnificent south & east facing corner living room with 6 windows, an elegant library and an immense formal dining room. These majestic rooms have seven perfectly proportioned, tall windows which maximize the views of the treetops in Central Park and the living and dining rooms have wood burning fireplaces clad in marble with original mantles. Enjoy cooking in the expansive kitchen, with seating for eight, surrounded by birds eye maple cabinetry, marble counters, a vented Viking stove and two refrigerators; a glass front Traulsen and a Subzero. The thoughtful renovations to this sought after and rarely available "B line", include the creation of a wide gallery in the bedroom wing with ample space for lounging, central air conditioning, and the incorporation of the former staff rooms into useful spaces such as a proper 6th bedroom, a substantial eating area in the impressive windowed chefs kitchen, a dressing room off the master bath and a full sized laundry room with double washers and dryers.
The private bedroom wing has five classically proportioned sunny, south-facing bedrooms, each with windowed en-suite baths and walk-in closets. Luxuriate in the lavish master bedroom with its wood burning fireplace, spacious windowed en-suite bath with separate dressing room, and two additional large closets. An adjacent bathroom can function as a second master bath. Central air conditioning, ceiling heights ranging from 10' to 10'6", herringbone floors, beautiful prewar detail and exquisite millwork enhance the elegance and comfort of this Fifth Avenue masterpiece.
1060 Fifth Avenue is on the corner of 87th Street, opposite the reservoir, a stone's throw from the Metropolitan and Guggenheim Museums, and amidst some of the best schools, shopping and restaurants on the Upper East Side. This top tier, white glove co-op has a state of the art gym, endless pool, basketball court, golf simulator, storage and vault which trade with the apartment, and a bike room.
