A GRAND HOME TRANSFORMED, 911 Park 3B (12 Rms/ 5br/ 4100 sf)
Res 3B at 911 Park Ave has been completely updated and refreshed. Stripped of its original furniture, wall to wall rugs, valances, swags, wallpaper and lacquered paint, a blank palette of enormous scale has emerged. Walls have since been re-painted and repaired, newly discovered hardwood floors sanded and stained, and all rooms refurnished in a clean, warm and contemporary way. It just awaits a personal touch!
The apartment, within a premiere white glove building in a coveted Upper East Side location, is the perfect residence for both elegant entertaining and everyday living. It is a rarity, given its sprawling size and desirable floorplan which provides privacy between public and private areas.
There is a beautifully renovated kitchen and 3-zone Central Air Conditioning system. There are only two Residences on the floor.
This corner apartment has lovely views facing North toward 80th St looking at blossoming trees and then West overlooking the beautifully landscaped mall on Park Avenue.
Upon entering the residence, an impressive 23' long Gallery, with hardwood herring-bone floors, is the perfect venue for display of Fine Art and furnishings. Centrally located within the apartment, it provides flow into the grand Living Room with wood-burning fireplace, formal Dining Room and elegant Library with Bar and Powder Room. The library could easily serve as the fifth bedroom with the Powder Room/Bar converted to a full bath.
A separate wing accessible from The Gallery, features four large bedrooms each with an en-suite bath and huge closets. Two of these rooms including the corner primary bedroom overlook Park Avenue.
The handsomely renovated Kitchen and Butlers' Pantry adjacent to the Dining Room, features St. Charles cabinetry with abundant storage, a Subzero refrigerator and Wolf range. It is open to a more casual Den/Dining area and includes a built-in desk.
A utility hallway accessible from the kitchen, leads to a generously sized Laundry Room outfitted with a full-size Washer and Dryer. The original floorplan included 3 maid rooms from which the casual living and laundry areas were created. It could be reconfigured to suit individual needs.
911 Park Avenue is a white-glove, full service, pre-war coop which was designed by Schwarz and Gross in 1932. It has a majestic, recently renovated lobby and an intimate ambiance with only 44 apartments and 14 floors within the building.
