A gem is known for its brilliance and how light plays on its precise angles; an apt description for this NEW TO THE MARKET, PREWAR, PARK AVENUE, two-bedroom home.
Rare, as in rare gem, is attributed to the few homes within the tower of 784 Park, rising above other Park Avenue buildings, offering unparalleled open views, and the opportunity to live in a 4.5 room home with the proportions of the former very grand apartment.
Perfectly situated in a 1930 Emory Roth Building, 19A looks out over the city and beyond, with beautiful views to the east, south, and west, and glorious sunlight, from sunrise to sunset, filling each room.
The home boasts a phenomenally spacious, 18'3'x 26'2" living room, ideal for gracious entertaining whether a large fund raiser or cozy dinner. It has both eastern and southern exposures, multiple windows, and glass French doors that open to a private setback balcony. There is a lovely decorator fireplace and built-in bookcases, all crafted with high quality millwork, and custom molding.
The eat in kitchen, 17'10"x 10'10, ideal for gourmet chefs, is warm and wonderful, with three windows, high end professional appliances, built in pantry and desk, custom wood cabinetry, richly detailed granite counters, European style floors, and service entrance.
Stunning entry gallery, over 22' long, is central to the home, and detailed with beautifully milled and outfitted closets.
The sumptuous, 15'x17'7" primary bedroom has a windowed en suite bathroom, and three large east facing windows.
A second bedroom, currently used as a sitting room and occasional guest room, is spacious with private access to a second full bath and has stunning western city and Central Park views.
Throughout are approximately 12' ceilings, original, lovingly maintained hard wood floors, combination central AC, and HVAC. High-end surround sound system throughout the apartment. Two full bathrooms, each with radiant heated floors. The apartment comes with a large storage room and has a semiprivate elevator landing.
The building has 58 units, 60% financing now permitted, pets are welcome. True white glove building with gym, bike room, private storage rooms, outdoor basketball court, and the most amazing staff. Pied-a-terres and washer and dryers are permitted.
784 Park Avenue, on the corner of 74th Street, is the singular most desirable East Side location. Within two blocks is Central Park.
