Enjoy gracious living in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, in an excellent-condition 3 bedroom 3 bathroom residence at the prized Rockefeller cooperative. This beautiful, spacious home located just off 5th Avenue boasts 2,350+/- sq ft of light-filled interiors, brightened by bayed and oversized windows with triple exposures to the north, south and west.

A generous marble gallery welcomes you into what is one of the largest apartments in the building, perched on a high floor. The central gallery flows into an enormous living room that is perfect for entertaining. An adjoining butler's pantry/wet bar with marble flooring connects to the elegant formal dining room and affords easy serving when hosting guests. Set conveniently off the dining room is a large cook's kitchen, which opens to a sunny office/sitting room with a built-in desk for reading or working remotely.

The huge primary bedroom suite is a comfortable place to unwind, with lots of room for a king-size bed plus furniture, a big walk-in closet for your personal belongings, and a private bath. Beside it sits the amply-sized second bedroom that accesses a full bathroom right nearby. The well-proportioned library or third bedroom is positioned at the opposite end of the apartment off the living room, by a second full hall bath. Other highlights of this luxurious gem include herringbone hardwood floors, and abundant closet space throughout.

24 West 55th Street was built in 1936 by the late Governor and Vice President, Nelson Rockefeller as part of a two-structure development, and converted to cooperative ownership in 1954. Designed by Wallace K. Harrison, the landmarked Art Deco building is among New York's finest residences, with a full-time doorman, live-in super, elevator attendants, a central laundry room, and private storage by application.

Topping the allure is its superior address across the garden of the Museum of Modern Art, moments from 5th Avenue shopping, fine dining, and convenient public transportation. Also close by is wonderful Central Park, Carnegie Hall, the Theater District, and other premier NYC attractions. Pets, pied-a-terres and co-purchasing are allowed with board approval.
