Elegance abounds in this graceful, sun-filled pre-war gem with a stately floor plan and verdant views of Central Park. Exclusive and discreet, this home evokes the feeling of a townhouse while providing the conveniences of a distinguished Fifth Avenue building. Bring your architect and create an iconic New York residence.
With its ideal layout and separation of public and private space, the apartment is perfect for entertaining. From the private elevator landing, enter a gracious foyer, past the sweeping staircase into a generously proportioned living room with soaring 10' ceilings, a gas fireplace and three oversized windows facing west onto the treetops of the Park. Adjoining the living room is a handsome library with a gas fireplace and views of the Carlyle Hotel tower. The gracious dining room with bay window and a gas fireplace leads to a butler's pantry and large square eat-in kitchen with brilliant eastern sunlight.
Upstairs allows for flexibility: design for 2 bedrooms and a sitting room/den or 3 bedrooms. The spacious master suite and its en-suite bathroom boast windows overlooking the park and towers of Central Park West. An adjacent bedroom with gas fireplace and en-suite bathroom can serve as a large second bedroom or den. A hallway leads to a third bedroom with en-suite bathroom and an adjoining office. There is a double staff room filled with light and bathroom with access to the back staircase and kitchen below.
This property offers exceptional value and is priced well below other comparable Fifth Avenue homes due to its higher maintenance. 953 Fifth Avenue is an intimate, white glove cooperative located amongst Manhattan's finest buildings along the Gold Coast between 76th and 77th Street. Situated near world-class restaurants and museums, it affords its residents an unparalleled lifestyle and high level of privacy.
No summer work rules and pets welcome.
