Breathtakingly elegant and majestic, this spectacular 15 into 12 room corner residence is located in one of the most distinguished pre-war cooperatives on Museum Mile, representing the best of the renowned 1920s architect J.E.R. Carpenter. Boasting nearly 48 linear feet directly on Central Park and cornering the block at 87th Street with sun-drenched southern exposures, this exceptional five-bedroom, six-bathroom home effortlessly accommodates both grand entertaining and intimate gatherings. The private elevator vestibule opens on to an impressive gallery, which flows beautifully into all four principal public rooms, three with serene tree-top Fifth Avenue views. The stunning library is flanked by the corner double length living room, offering multiple seating areas, perfect art walls and a wood burning fireplace, and the stately formal dining room, also with an exquisitely detailed fireplace. The cozy media room with a full bathroom is ideal for casual relaxation. The expansive chef's kitchen with separate large eating area and butler’s pantry is equipped with top-of-the-line appliances and a stylish combination of maple wood, steel and glass cabinets and marble counter-tops.
A magnificent seven-foot wide private hall leads to four extraordinarily proportioned and sun-filled bedrooms (each with en-suite bathrooms and generous closets), including the master bedroom with a handsome fireplace and luxurious oversized bathroom and dressing room. The fifth bedroom, additional bathroom and huge laundry room complete the private quarters. Recently and carefully updated, this truly special home offers a rare opportunity to own one of the largest residences on Fifth Avenue.
1060 Fifth Avenue is a prestigious white glove building, with amenities rivaling Manhattan’s new luxury condominiums, including full service staff, live-in building manager, a state-of-the-art health club, against-the-current lap pool, basketball court, bike room, private storage and individual vault rooms.
