Serenely overlooking the Metropolitan Museum of Art sits Apartment 9C at 1001 Fifth Avenue. This generously proportioned two bedroom, two and a half bathroom residence with 29 feet of Fifth Avenue frontage features direct unobstructed views of Museum Row and the lush greenery of Central Park beyond. Plus, 9C has been fully renovated and remodeled to contain a dedicated entry foyer and expanded kitchen.
A spacious 13 foot gallery welcomes you into this elegantly appointed home with an ideal layout, replete with custom cabinetry and millwork, as well as solid mahogany and marble floors throughout. The living and dining room, located on the west side of the apartment, enjoy direct views of the MET from bay windows. With a built in overlay bookcase concealing the television, this space is perfectly equipped for entertaining guests with dinner parties or relaxing and watching the sun set and the museum illuminated at night. The spacious kitchen with seated breakfast bar and custom cherry cabinetry throughout is equipped with a Viking oven, microwave, a paneled Thermador warming drawer as well as a Fisher & Paykel stacked dual drawer dishwasher and Subzero refrigerator seamlessly paneled to blend inconspicuously with the cabinetry. The kitchen contains designer glass paneled pocket doors and windows towards the dining room. A dedicated pantry provides ample storage. The dining room features custom glass cabinetry and two paneled Subzero wine refrigerators.
The powder room is located adjacent to the kitchen as you travel to the private quarters on the east side of the residence. Both bedrooms enjoy ensuite marble bathrooms, with the primary bedroom boasting an abundance of additional storage granted by the expertly designed built-in closets as well as an in-unit Miele washer and dryer in their own dedicated closet just outside of the primary bathroom. The combination of oversized picture windows, eastern exposure, and location furthest away from Fifth Avenue within the home create sun-filled yet pin-drop quiet sleeping quarters separated from the entertainment space, ensuring tranquil privacy.
An additional private locked storage bin transfers with the sale of Apartment 9C.
