Nestled within the historic embrace of the iconic St Urban, Apartment 5N thrusts you back to a romantic time at the turn of the twentieth century where life was elegant in the Upper West Side directly abutting Central Park.

As you enter the gracious windowed foyer, you will immediately be drawn back to a time when elegance and charm were magnificently displayed. Venture into the distinguished parlor, resplendent with glorious Eastern light, a fireplace and remarkable direct views of Central Park from stately, oversized windows. The Fifth floor is a perfect vantage to see a lovely expanse of the Park, with an ability to hone in on the vibrancy of the running, biking path along the oval. Proceed through French doors to enter the expansive formal dining room, also featuring glorious views of the Park.

The design of this gracious apartment lends itself to entertaining. Whether traditional with a concert grand piano, or a more modern style, this gracious apartment has an undeniable swagger. The 10.5 foot ceilings, combined with the oversized windows add to the voluminous feel of this remarkable space, and Apt 5N boasts abundant light from each vantage of North, South, East and West.

Apartment 5N features a primary suite in the unmistakable turreted NorthEast end of the St Urban. This round suite is truly unique in NYC with its custom rounded windows and formal feel. Proceed down an elegant hallway to the additional 3 bedroom suites which all have direct North-facing windows, across charming 89th St toward the elegant, Jacobean style of 291 CPW.

The internal service area of Apartment 5N is the most flexible part of this great oasis. Enter the additional hallway which leads you to an enormous windowed kitchen complete with butler's pantry. Continue to the giant windowed laundry room, then on to the gracious windowed service quarters complete with another Bathroom.

Apartment 5N is in estate condition from 1966 when the St Urban converted into a Coop. The entire unit is ready for the discerning eye. Whether you intend to restore 5N to its original Beaux Arts glory or create a modern marvel, myriad options await the discerning eye.

Built in 1905 By Renowned Architect Robert T Lyons, and inducted into New York City Landmark status in 1990, The St Urban is among the most recognizable Central Park Beaux Arts masterpieces of architectural grandeur. The intricate fa ade expands 12 stories distinguished by a turret, cupola and a massive full-story copper mansard roof. Not to be missed is the elegant porte-cochere next to the building entrance.
