Built in 1930

Remarkably graceful, this exceptional high floor duplex is a superb example of Rosario Candela's beautiful and masterful work. Exceedingly large, the glorious and sunlit residence is comprised of 14 impeccably proportioned and scaled rooms, and has the good fortune to be situated in one of Carnegie Hill's most prestigious and sought-after white-glove cooperative buildings. Ideal for both grand living and extraordinary entertaining, the apartment is distinguished by endless rooms with picture perfect views from an extraordinary 18 oversized windows facing directly onto Central Park.

Upon entry, this celebrated apartment opens to a private elevator landing, and beyond there is an impressive marble-floored Gallery. Graced by the original marble staircase with wrought iron balustrade, the Gallery in turn anchors each of the principal entertaining rooms. Majestically perched over Central Park, the 30-foot Living Room includes two sets of double doors and a wood burning fireplace. It is flanked by a large and handsome oak paneled Library and an elegant formal Dining Room, each with a marble-mantled wood burning fireplace and divine tree-top outlooks. A Powder Room with Ante Room is conveniently and graciously located off of the Gallery.

The back of house includes an enormous windowed Kitchen, a Pantry and a Breakfast Room, as well as a Laundry Room, Staff Room and Bath, and a back stairway. There is also an unexpected east facing elongated terrace that could be accessed from an expanded breakfast area, and would be lovely for a step out to enjoy a bright morning or the crisp evening air.

The upstairs private quarters include a marvelous Master Suite with wood burning fireplace and a Park facing Dressing Room and Bath. There are three more very large Bedrooms, two of which front onto the Park, plus abundant closets, including a proper walk-in linen closet and a big cedar closet. Several additional Staff Rooms and Baths complete the floor.

Incorporating many of the stunning design elements that distinguish the great buildings of the early Twentieth Century in New York City, this apartment is most certainly an architectural tour de force. Having been owned by the same family for over fifty years, the opportunity to purchase this Fifth Avenue Candela trophy property is rare.
