This expansive two-bedroom plus maid's room home sits attractively in a well-appointed pre-war cooperative just off of Park Avenue in the heart of Carnegie Hill. On a high floor and basking in sunlight, the apartment has been beautifully renovated by the current owners attentive to every detail. The 'move-in ready' concept as envisioned has been achieved. Modern comforts, elegant finishes, high-end appliances, and newly installed electrical components are just a few of the new features, as is a coveted washer and dryer, yet the home retains the grand scale and flair that make pre-war buildings so desirable. Original details include...a charming wood-burning fireplace, beamed, 9-foot ceilings, and beautifully preserved herringbone hardwood floors. An airy gallery, appointed with two large closets, leads to a stunning 26-foot living room perfect to host a formal dining for entertaining. A windowed and well-equipped chef's kitchen includes a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf five-burner gas range and oven, Miele dishwasher, wine refrigerator, and abundant storage space. Off the kitchen, the butler's pantry features a Bosch washerdryer and custom-built-ins for extra storage. A formal dining room currently featuring a built-in library and storage built-ins can be easily transformed into a fourth bedroom or a windowed home office. The home's west wing hosts two large south-facing bedrooms. The master, with a windowed en-suite bathroom, features both a walk-in closet and a custom-fitted closet. The second bedroom has been designed with custom sliding doors to enhance privacy and to create added sleeping space or a work area. The renovated windowed en-suite bathroom features a beautiful shower and plenty of storage. A bright maid's room, just off the kitchen and with a powder room en-suite, currently functions as a delightful guest room with a custom Murphy bed. The apartment offers surround sound and is also wired for Fios or Spectrum. An attentive and long-standing staff includes a doorman and a live-in superintendent. Amenities include outdoor space with a basketball court, a bicycle room, and private storage that conveys with transfer of the apartment. This premier building is close to Central Park, Museum Mile, and excellent private and public schools. The 4, 5, 6 trains and the M86 crosstown bus are but steps away. The building allows 70% financing and has a 1% flip tax. Pets are permitted.
