Seize the opportunity to own and enjoy this magnificent light filled 9 room apartment. Offered for the first time in over 50 years, the spacious apartment maintains much of its prewar detail with original moldings, doors, floors and layout by the master architect, J.E.R. Carpenter. Entry to 6B is via a semiprivate elevator hall and one is immediately welcomed with a 21' long gallery leading directly to the gracious 25' living room. This well-proportioned room with north facing windows, lovely herringbone wood floors and 9.5' ceiling has a wood burning fireplace with the original mantelpiece from 1926. Adjacent is the sizeable formal dining room which could easily seat 10 people or more. The pantry and large kitchen have ample potential for the new owner and their architect/designer to create a dream chefs kitchen and comfortable and casual eat in space. Further enhancing flexibility to this area are two staff rooms and bath; one of which is currently used as a laundry room. The two staff rooms could be combined for a 4th or 5th bedroom or office, or perhaps one or both opened to the kitchen in a completely new design for the space. The corner master bedroom faces west to Central Park and north with side glimpses of the Park. The nearby second bedroom also has a western exposure with Park views and has a large walk in closet. The third and fourth bedrooms face north and share a bath. The 4th bedroom is currently configured as a library. The building was completed in 1926 with a beautiful facade and elaborate entry door surround. The lobby is distinguished by graceful Ionic columns and curved arches leading to two elevator banks. J.E.R. Carpenter was a significant force in the development of the luxury apartment house. He developed the "off the foyer layout" in which all major spaces... living, sleeping and service...radiate. The building is pet friendly, allows up to 50% financing and offers an individual storage unit, bike room and gym for residents.
