Move right in to this triple mint 8-into 7-room home in one of Park Avenue's premier buildings. This 3-bedroom, 3 bath plus large office/staff room has been beautifully renovated, maintaining its classic floorplan and prewar features while giving it a fresh and modern feeling. A large entry gallery opens up to the gracious living room with a woodburning fireplace and built-in bookshelves; the corner dining room is adjacent, through glass French doors. The windowed stainless steel chef's kitchen features: top-of-the-line appliances, including a Wolf 6-burner range with vented hood and a Subzero refrigerator and wine cooler; custom cabinetry and extra-thick marble countertops; an eat-in area with banquette; and a full-size washer and dryer.
The bedroom wing is on the other side of the entry gallery, with three large bedrooms off an extra-wide hallway. The master bedroom has a windowed ensuite bath with double sinks and a shower with luxury fittings; the other two bedrooms share a windowed bath. A large maid's room near the kitchen has been outfitted as a double office; it could easily be used as a fourth bedroom, with its own full windowed bath.
Other attractive features of the apartment include: radiant heat floors in all baths; through wall AC throughout, controlled by a Control4 smart home system, with thermostats in each room; an integrated media system with in-wall speakers; 12 large outfitted closets. An oversized private storage bin is available in the basement.
