Imagine living as only Rosario Candela could have designed it. When 2/3C was first designed, it was thought to be perfection in the sense that it struck the balance between the grandeur of townhouse living in New York city and the security needed to live life at its best. Apartment 2/3C has not been offered for sale for over 60 years. This five bedroom, spacious and extremely gracious apartment is made more beautiful by 10'9" ceilings, fireplaces and very large, well proportioned, rooms. A beautiful staircase graces the spacious entrance gallery, an architectural element which distinguishes Candela designed apartments, from...all others. The very large dining room (25'4"sq ft X 20"sq ft) may be configured formally or informally, as a large family space. The approximately 5590 square footage of the apartment (see floor plan) permits a large number of private bedrooms combined with public space, which can be converted to the needs of any owner today. The kitchen area provides enormous storage for China and Crystal as well as the opportunity to have a great chefs kitchen. The South facing rooms of this apartment have one have wonderful opportunities for lovely light streaming into the public rooms and bedrooms . The outlook into tree lined 71 st Street creates a quiet and calming effect in this exceptional living space. Reinvent your life here for today, whether you need school rooms, zoom space, your own gym and theatre space. There is a place for it all in apartment 2/3C.
