Triple Mint Park Avenue Penthouse
This meticulously renovated 5,200 Sq Ft (approx.) penthouse duplex with wonderful Central Park and Manhattan Skyline views is located on the 19th and 20th floors of one of Park Avenue's most prestigious white-glove Prewar Cooperatives at the corner of East 71st Street.
An oversized private elevator landing opens onto an elegant 21 ft. entrance gallery with an enormous picture window capturing breathtaking views of the Manhattan Skyline and Central Park. The gallery leads to a massive 35 x 22 Ft living room with soaring 11 ft. ceilings and three exposures; the Western exposure captures outstanding skyline and Central Park views. At the opposite end of the gallery is a wonderful corner library and a gracious formal dining room with floor-to-ceiling French doors opening onto the penthouse's north terrace. The vast and beautifully renovated eat-in-kitchen boasts three exposures and is bathed in natural sunlight throughout the day. The Western views from the kitchen captures Central Park and open blue skies, a rare feature in a Manhattan Pre-war kitchen. Adjacent to the kitchen is a large family room/fourth bedroom with a sunny Eastern exposure, and an adjoining guest bathroom. A separate laundry room, and a staff suite with a large private bath and a private terrace, complete this wing of the home.
A gracious staircase leads to the bedroom level of the penthouse on the 20th Fl. At the top of the staircase are French doors opening onto a wonderfully landscaped double terrace with open views westward to Central Park. Each of the three bedroom suites on this level are completely private with no adjoining walls, and each has a renovated en-suite windowed bathroom. The enormous corner primary bedroom suite enjoys floor-to-ceilings window and French doors opening onto the stunning terrace with Central Park views. The oversized suite has excellent closet space and a separate dressing room opening into a beautifully renovated sundrenched bathroom.
A staff room on the second floor of the building is available for sale separately.
730 Park Avenue was built in 1929, and designed in the golden age of New York apartment house construction by F. Burrall Hoffman Jr. and Lafayette A. Goldstone in the Neo-Renaissance and Neo-Jacobean style. Standing 20 stately stories on the Southwest corner of Park Avenue and 71st Street, the building contains 40 generously proportioned apartments. Residents enter via an impressive entrance on a quiet side street, and receive the services of two full-time doormen, a Resident Manager, and several handymen. This prestigious full-service cooperative also offers a fitness room, storage, and an excellent location in the center of the Upper East Side, minutes from fashionable boutiques, premier restaurants and art galleries on Madison Avenue. There is a 3% flip tax paid by the purchaser, and the building now permits 50% financing.
