Description

Situated in one of Fifth Avenue's most sought after pre-war cooperatives, this impressive maisonette apartment offers very large-scale rooms with wonderful Georgian architectural detail, which includes a mahogany paneled dining room/library, mahogany paneled doors and beautiful oak floors inlaid with mahogany. The impressively scaled entry gallery retains its original black and white marble floor and gracious staircase with attractive wrought iron balusters. Arriving from the building lobby, one... enters into the capacious marble gallery and stair hall that easily accommodates and lends itself to dining. Tall double doors open to the adjacent beautifully paneled large-scale library/formal dining room. There is also a guest powder room and a back hallway with access to the professional chef's kitchen with breakfast room and stainless steel and glass cabinetry throughout. A separate laundry room completes this floor. The upper level with access from the grand staircase or from the lobby by the building elevator, also offers an architecturally pleasing galleried landing with concealed serving bar, opening to the beautiful large drawing room with fireplace and over-sized Georgian style six over six pane windows affording direct views of the Park. This floor also comprises a luxurious master bedroom suite, also facing the Park, with a spacious bedroom, an extensive walk-in dressing closet, and a sitting room with large bathroom. The gallery in this upper level is arranged as a pleasing series of inter-connected areas that also give access to a large square informal sitting room/media room and three smaller bedrooms with a bathroom and a second oversized powder room that could easily be restored to a full bathroom. These bedrooms have potential to be re-arranged to create two additional master sized bedrooms, each with en suite bathroom. A second staircase leads down the rear hallway on the lower level. 960 Fifth was constructed in 1927 by the team of Rosario Candela, famous for his expansive Georgian apartment designs, and Warren and Wetmore, the Beaux-Arts designers of Grand Central terminal. The project was ambitious, as it comprised fourteen interlocking apartments on the front with varied ceiling heights and unique designs, along with a smaller pied a terre section on the rear with the address of 3 East 77th Street. Between the two, and accessed from the interconnecting lobby, is the Georgian Suite, a private set of dining rooms with a resident French chef catering to the needs of the owners. A more recent addition to the building is the remarkable glass-walled penthouse gym with terrace, undoubtedly the most appealing gym of any pre-war co-operative in the city. This offering presents a rare opportunity to acquire a uniquely special apartment in one of the finest and most prestigious cooperatives in Manhattan. Co-Exclusive.
