SPRAWLING APARTMENT WITH DREAM ARCHITECTURAL FEATURES. Designed by world renowned architect Rosario Candela and occupying the entire ninth floor of this white glove, full-service coop. This amazing pre-war approximately 4,200 square foot, former 14 room apartment, is currently 12 oversized rooms but can easily be restored to its original 5 bedroom and 4 full bath layout. Add to that an expansive living room, formal dining room, wood paneled library, huge eat-in chef sized kitchen and staff room with full bath. This amazing space with some work can be the perfect living and entertainment trophy property that will be transformed with a new kitchen, two new baths and updates to suit your personal taste and needs.
The apartment is distinguished by its gracious flow, beautifully proportioned rooms and 9.5-foot ceilings. Your private elevator vestibule opens to the grand gallery/foyer leading to the sun splashed south facing public rooms. Off the gallery is the well-proportioned 18' 27' living room featuring two floor-to-ceiling French door windows with Juliette balconies, a wood burning marble fireplace and original herringbone red oak floors. The 12 18 library offers classic original knotty pine paneling, and a large full bath, which can be a wonderful gathering space, media room or the ultimate home office worthy of any CEO. The 22 16 formal dining room accommodates 12+ and leads to a windowed butler's pantry and HUGE kitchen area waiting for your designer. The staff room and full bath behind the kitchen area can easily be added to the kitchen or converted to a laundry room or home office. The primary bedroom has beautiful double south and west exposures, two floor-to-ceiling French door windows with Juliette balconies, full bath, a huge walk-in closet and the bedroom's former working fireplace can be restored to working order. A generous gallery hallway currently leads to 2 bedrooms with generous closet space and a 24 18 family room with a decorative fireplace that can easily be converted back to its original two 12 18 bedrooms to create a 5-6 bedroom, 3-4 full bath home. The possibilities are endless and limited only by yours and your designer's imagination. Coop board APPROVED renovation plans are also available!
