http://owl.li/f8KI300OfgI This modern penthouse apartment is a stunning, light-filled sanctuary in one of Manhattan’s most distinguished white-glove cooperatives on Park Avenue. Beautifully constructed, not a single detail has been overlooked in this elegantly renovated and sophisticated 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom Carnegie Hill home.
Enter from the semi-private landing into the sun-filled, expansive living-dining space with soaring 10-foot high beam ceilings, an elegant marble wood-burning fireplace and custom French doors that lead to the sweeping 70-foot terrace perched high above Park Avenue with scenic city views to the East River. With fantastic outdoor access and lovely indoor spaces, this home provides the perfect setting for versatile entertaining.
The spacious chef’s kitchen with custom cabinetry, honed stone countertops and top-of-the-line appliances, including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Viking vented cooktop, oven and warming drawer, built-in Miele espresso maker and Viking wine refrigerator will delight even the most discerning chef.
Three meticulously appointed bedrooms offer comfort and tranquility. The luxurious master bedroom suite with its large picture window has an impressive walk-in closet and direct access to the terrace through two sets of French doors. The generously-sized second bedroom includes an en suite marble bath and Central Park Reservoir views, and the third bedroom, currently functioning as a library with pocket doors, features custom built-in cabinetry and bookshelves and fantastic sunlight thanks to an oversized single-paned double glazed window, one of many throughout the apartment. There is also a large powder room off the hallway which can easily be converted into a full bath.
The staff room, also with Central Park views and an adjoining full bathroom, is a private retreat, accessible from the rear hallway off the kitchen. Given its separation from the rest of the residence, it is perfectly suited as guest bedroom, office or gym. The rear terrace, while owned by the co-op, is only accessible by the penthouse floor and offers incredible Central Park Reservoir views. Custom millwork, dark oak floors, radiant under-floor heating in the master bath, a Creston sound system, ample closets and storage space, washer/dryer and central airthroughout distinguish this exceptional residence from the rest.
Built in 1927 and designed by renowned architect George Fred Pelham, 1130 Park is one of Carnegie Hill’s most desirable buildings nestled among the finest museums, charming boutiques, excellent restaurants and Manhattan’s finest private schools. Building amenities include a 24-hour doorman, concierge, bike room, private storage room in the basement, fitness room and a live-in superintendent. Pets are welcome. A rare and special offering.
