This high-floor apartment offers extraordinary graciousness, exceptional space and incredible light. It is located in a prime full-service cooperative building, designed in 1926 by JER Carpenter, with open North, East and South views. The large entrance foyer off of the private elevator landing radiates to the corner living room with its wood-burning fireplace, the library with a corner study, and the formal dining room. The proportions of the rooms are particularly generous and the flow among the public rooms is ideal for entertaining. A separate bedroom wing boasts four large bedrooms, including the sun-flooded, corner primary bedroom. The windowed kitchen is adjacent to a breakfast room and to a large home office created out of two of the original staff rooms. This space could easily be used as a fifth bedroom opening to the bedroom hallway. An additional staff room, a large pantry and five full bathrooms complete the apartment. This residence is coming to the market for the first time in many years.
