941 Park Avenue, 6C - Upper East Side, New York
A very grand prewar apartment with beautifully proportioned rooms, over 10 foot tall beamed ceilings, lovely oak herringbone floors and rich in original detail. It has the volume of many townhouses all on one floor. First impression upon entering is of a large marble reception gallery spanning nearly 30 feet. To the right, is the south-facing living room featuring three large windows and a wood burning fireplace with an elegant mantle. Immediately adjacent to the living room is the library, also offering southern exposure in addition to beautiful custom cabinetry, and a powder room. Perfectly situated on the opposite side of the reception gallery is the enormous formal dining room, ideally suited for lavish dinner parties. The apartment has 4 large bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, 2 half bathrooms plus a staff bathroom, many enormous walk-in closets, a particularly large windowed eat-in kitchen with a vintage professional Garland stove, center island and dining table, proper butler's pantry with washer/dryer, plus 2 staff bedrooms, one of which was converted into a walk-in refrigerated wine storage room. For the true oenophile there is even another enormous wine storage room. The enviously large corner master bedroom has south and east exposures, large walk-in closets and a windowed master bathroom. 941 Park Avenue, ideally situated on the corner of 81st Street, is a white glove 16-story apartment building built during the roaring '20's with only 35 apartments serviced by two elevator banks. It is regarded as one of the most prestigious prewar co-ops in the Park Avenue Historic District. In addition to 24 hour doormen and a full service staff including a resident manager, porters and handymen, the building has a fitness center and a children's playroom, a bike room, is pet friendly and allows up to 30% financing. A storage bin is included in the sale of the apartment and there is a 2% flip tax payable by the purchaser.
