Located steps from Central Park in quintessential Carnegie Hill, this sprawling Classic 8 room apartment is sun-filled, beautifully renovated and has classic Park views. The apartment is entered from a semi-private elevator landing into an oversized foyer that flows graciously into the generously proportioned public rooms of the apartment. The living room with high ceilings and wood-burning fireplace faces north over 96th Street with a view of Central Park. Off the living room is the formal dining room that is large enough to be used as a combination of seating and dining. Also, off the foyer is the well-placed powder room and the library or fourth bedroom. The eat-in kitchen is complete with a Viking stove, Miele dishwasher, and Subzero refrigerator/freezer and wine refrigerator. It also has abundant storage which continues along the hallway of the pantry. The pantry hall, which leads to a separate laundry room, has a floor to ceiling storage closet. There is an oversized staff room which has been converted into playroom/office with desk space for four.
The separate bedroom wing is complete with Master plus two additional bedrooms, all with renovated en-suite bathrooms. The division of space easily allows for entertaining as well as total privacy.
