Exceptional opportunity to own a splendid light-filled 9 into 8 room home in historic Carnegie Hill. This spacious apartment with large, well-proportioned rooms, maintains much of its prewar design by the eminent architect, J.E.R. Carpenter. A semiprivate elevator hall provides entry to this gracious residence of approximately 2850sf.
A classic Carpenter 21' centre gallery leads to the elegant oversized 28'9 living room with north-facing windows and oblique views of Central Park, lovely herringbone floors, 9'7 ceiling and a wood burning fireplace with original mantelpiece. Adjacent is a sizable library with built-in bookcases created from the former formal dining room. This room has access to a private bath and could easily be a fifth bedroom. The present dining room with south-facing window and thru-the wall a/c has generous space to comfortably seat up to 10 people. The large kitchen has ample potential for the new owner and their architect/designer to create a wonderful chef's kitchen complete with washer/dryer and casual eat-in area.
The serene corner master bedroom with two closets faces west with a direct pastoral view of the East Meadow and north with side glimpses of the Park. The windowed master bath with its view of the Park was recently renovated and features Robern cabinetry and Kohler fixtures. The second bedroom as well has a western exposure with Park views and a deep walk-in closet. The third and fourth bedrooms face north and share a windowed bath that also underwent a recent renovation with Robern cabinetry and Kohler fixtures. 1165 Fifth Avenue, notable for its particularly warm, attentive full-time professional staff, was completed in 1926 with a beautiful façade and elaborate entry door surround. The lobby is distinguished by graceful Ionic columns and curved arches. This desirable cooperative is pet friendly, allows up to 50% financing and offers an individual storage unit, bike room and gym. Central a/c is permitted with board approval.
