Many think - and rightfully so - that 1088 Park Avenue (designed in 1927 by noted architect Mott Schmidt) is one of the most beautiful and desirable pre-war co-ops in Carnegie Hill. Located on New York's premier residential street, its grand entrance and vaulted vestibules lead you to its unrivaled and newly renovated private interior courtyard/park. Apartment 9E is a special opportunity for the sophisticated buyer to obtain a high-floor, sun-filled south-facing 8 room home in very good condition. This apartment features three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and an enormous windowed eat-in kitchen. The renovated kitchen opens through pocket doors to...the once-formal dining room, creating a very large and welcoming family/dining room. Additionally, there is a spacious home office with full ensuite bath that could also be a fourth bedroom. The semi-private elevator landing invites you to a foyer which opens to a large, room-sized gallery which leads to a high-ceilinged living room with classic proportions, a beautiful herringbone parquet floor, and a wood burning fireplace. This home has new windows, custom built-ins throughout, central air conditioning in the public spaces (through-the-wall in bedrooms), a vented in-unit full-size washer and dryer, and includes a large private storage bin. Noted for its exceptional and professional staff, 1088 Park Avenue has two newly-renovated gyms and the aforementioned magical park-like garden. The building allows 50% financing, has a 2% flip tax to be paid by the buyer, and is pet friendly. Perfectly situated in the heart of one of New York City's most desirable neighborhoods, everything is readily available in moments - Central Park, restaurants, shops, schools, and museums.
