As you enter the massive entry foyer of apartment 6C from its semi-private elevator vestibule, you are immediately transported to a grand era of New York City architecture. Situated on the north-east corner of 81st Street, the apartment is sunny and cheerful and comprises +/- 4,500 square feet, about the same size as a typical 4-story townhouse. Originally designed as a 12-room apartment (now 10 rooms), it has 4 master bedrooms, a grand and welcoming living room with a wood burning fireplace, over 10-foot-tall ceilings throughout, a large formal dining room ideal for hosting holiday dinners, a well-proportioned library conveniently adjacent to both the living room and master bedroom, and a wonderfully expansive kitchen you'll actually enjoy cooking in. The present owner is an oenophile so 2 of the original staff rooms have been re-envisioned as walk-in temperature and humidity-controlled wine cellars.
941 Park Avenue was erected in 1927, during the lavish Roaring 20's, and is a boldly designed, 16-story building with only 34 apartments. As a result, this apartment has the scale (it was originally designed with 4 staff rooms), size and details of the finest prewar apartments along the Avenue. In addition, the architects, Schwartz and Gross, designed many of the most well-regarded buildings on Park Avenue including 888 Park Avenue and 885 Park Avenue, among many others.
941 Park Avenue prides itself on its 24-hour white glove service provided by its wonderful and caring staff and has been home to many of the city's most illustrious residents. The building also just completed brand new renovations to its fitness room and children's playroom. The apartment includes a storage bin in the basement. There are no ongoing assessments, the building permits trust ownership on a case by case basis and the 2% flip tax is payable by the purchaser.
If you are looking for a 4-bedroom apartment with expansive space and sunny exposures in a pre-war coop with excellent service and amenities, this apartment represents one of the city's best values. Please contact me today to schedule a time to view 6C.
