Description

PREWAR FULL-FLOOR CONDO OVERLOOKING CENTRAL PARK

Exquisitely designed by James E.R. Carpenter, a premier architect of luxury residential high rise buildings in the 1920's, and built in 1925, the gracious beaux-arts 988 Fifth Avenue is an exceptionally rare full service prewar condominium, perfectly located on the southeast corner of quiet 80th Street and Fifth Avenue.

The ninth floor at 988 Fifth Avenue is a magnificently renovated private full-floor residence overlooking Central Park and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. This apartment is approximately 3,530 square feet, with 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, and was completely rebuilt and redesigned to the highest level. This home boasts four exposures, which fill the apartment with gorgeous natural light throughout the day and exquisite architectural details throughout every room.

Some beautiful features of the home include high ceilings over 10 feet, new oversized quiet windows, direct views of Central Park, Lutron and Crestron lighting controls, Dornbracht and THG plumbing fixtures throughout, central air conditioning and heating with built-in humidification, and a washer-dryer. The home has been renovated to the highest standard with Marron Grecale and Thassos marble, lacquered walls, Poliform closets, custom Tabu Zebrano cabinetry and automatic window treatments in every room.

Enter through the private elevator landing to the gracious entry foyer, which leads to an enormous living room and dining room with stunning park, Manhattan Skyline and museum views. The large dining/living area make this part of the home ideal for grand entertaining. The updated modern kitchen and substantial size breakfast room with banquette boasts custom cabinetry in dyed Tabu Zebrano wood, elegant stone countertops and backsplashes, and top-of-the-line appliances by Miele, Sub Zero, Gaggenau and Wolf. A custom designed powder room with Vanilla Onyx countertops and luxurious fixtures is discreetly tucked away.

A long and impressive gallery that leads to three bedrooms is the perfect space to display uniquely large art pieces.

The classy primary bedroom suite with East, South and North exposures, includes a walk-in custom built closet by Poliform and a gorgeous en-suite spa bathroom outfitted with beautiful full-slab White Thassos marble and double vanity, heated floors and a rain shower.

The two additional bedrooms have spacious closets, en-suite bathrooms and custom built-in desks. A separate laundry room off the kitchen completes this residence.

988 Fifth Avenue is a full-service, 14-story building with 12 residences offering a full-time doorman and live-in Resident Manager. This pet-friendly building has available storage and bike storage in the basement. It is just moments away from Central Park, Madison Avenue, and Manhattan's best cuisine, culture, and shopping.
