Description

Fifth Avenue Duplex with Direct Central Park Views

Bring your architect and your dreams for an iconic New York residence. Exclusive and understated, this elegant home with direct views of Central Park combines the privacy of a townhouse with the convenience of a distinguished Fifth Avenue building and features excellent separation between public and private space. Classic architectural details include grand-scaled rooms, high ceilings, oversized windows, four gas fireplaces, open kitchen and two staircases. The home is graced with brilliant sunshine from the east in the morning and beautiful western light in the afternoon.

Originally a 10-room unit, the gracious layout on the 5th floor includes a private elevator landing, refined foyer, grand living room with direct park views, handsome library, spacious dining room, butler’s pantry and a large, square eat-in kitchen.

The 6th floor offers plenty of privacy for family living and the potential for 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths. A substantial master bedroom and en suite bath both feature direct park views. The secondary bedrooms and adjoining bathrooms are generous in size and allow for flexibility in layout. Please note that photos are virtually staged.

953 Fifth Avenue was developed as a cooperative in 1924 by noted architect and historian, Isaac Newton Phelps Stokes who also developed St. Paul’s Chapel at Columbia University and the J. Harper Poor townhouse at 33 East 69th Street. With just seven residences, a full-time elevator/doorman and live-in resident manager, the building offers an unparalleled level of privacy for serene and discreet living. 953 Fifth has no summer work rules and welcomes pets and pied a terres. 40% financing is permitted and there is a 2.5% flip tax paid by the buyer.
