As one of the premier neighborhoods in New York City, the Upper East Side is known for its atmosphere of wealth and culture, presenting the best of what Manhattan has to offer. From its 5th Ave. Museum Mile, to its art galleries, and historic properties, this neighborhood is highly sought after for its residences that line Central Park, like this stunning third-floor apartment at 820 Fifth Avenue that is on the market for the first time in 60 years.
The apartment is situated within an architecturally significant limestone co-op, which emulates Neo-Italian Renaissance Palazzo style designed by Starrett and van Vleck in 1916. This visually striking building has also been the home of several notable figures, two of which being fashion mogul Tommy Hilfiger and CBS President William S. Paley.
Spanning the entire third floor, this stately 18-room apartment features 5 bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms, luxurious conveniences, and ornate interior detailing throughout.
This abundant living space features several unique characteristics that New York City residents dream of. Perhaps its most significant feature being its oversized windows that offer front-facing views of Central Park and Midtown Manhattan.
Each room exudes pure elegance, with towering 12-foot ceilings, Parquet de Versailles floors, and 6 wood-burning fireplaces adorned with Louis the XV and XVI marble mantles curated from Europe.
The home also features several grand scale sitting rooms, an impressive library, a drawing room, and a large dining room that makes this home the perfect location for entertaining.
The north wing of the apartment features a spacious kitchen, a family room, and two double staff bedrooms, with adjacent bathrooms.
In the South Wing of the apartment, 5 private bedroom suites and their en-suite bathrooms are replete with elegant woodwork detailing and lined with south-facing windows that fill the rooms with natural sunlight.
