Fifth avenue sunfilled prewar classic 6 with park views
over forty feet of spectacular direct central park views defines this rarely available generously proportioned prewar 6 room apartment, located at 965 fifth avenue, between 77th and 78th streets, one of the most desirable blocks in new york city. Accessed via a semi-private elevator landing, the apartment opens into a gracious square gallery from which the living, dining, and kitchen areas emanate. This central space includes two closets: one a walk-in and another which currently houses a bar. The walk-in closet was originally a powder room which can easily be restored. Straight ahead lies the grand living room that faces west offering views of central park and a marble fireplace. The living room flows directly into an elegant formal dining room affording a 42-foot span of exceptional entertaining space. Accessible from both the gallery and dining room is a large eat-in kitchen and laundry area. Adjacent to the kitchen lies a staff room and bath. Off the west side of the gallery is a foyer which contains a large closet and leads to the airy bedroom wing. The oversized master bedroom, like the living room, enjoys central park views, and features an abundance of closets and custom cabinetry, and an en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom shares the same park views and grand proportions as the living room and master bedroom. It includes two outfitted closets, one of which currently houses a built-in audio-visual area. The en-suite marble bath has a window that also enjoys views of the park. Architectural details such as herringbone hardwood floors, high beamed ceilings, and crown moldings epitomize the pre-war sophistication and glamour of the apartment. 965 fifth avenue was built in 1938 and designed by margon & holder, one of the designers contributing to the construction of the el dorado alongside emery roth. It is a full-service, white-glove, luxury cooperative. Residents enjoy a full-time doorman, elevator operator, gym, private storage and a bike room. Pets are welcome.
