Description
Perched up high within one of Candela's most prestigious and sought after prewar coops, this one of a kind residence boasts extraordinary scale and baronial proportions. With massive frontage along Park Avenue, the glorious and sun flooded rooms are perfectly suited to the grandest entertaining and the most gracious living. Noteworthy details include soaring ceilings as high as 14"9' feet, immaculate hardwood floors and marvelous period stone embellishments and mantle pieces. The private Entry Vestibule opens to a spectacularly grand Gallery with a vaulted cathedral ceiling. The massive Living Room is distinguished by extraordinary 18th Century English wood paneling and a wood burning fireplace. There is also an enormous Dining Room with 13.5 ft high ceilings and three window bays as well as a most handsome Library that incorporates an oversized four panel stained glass window within a stone Gothic style window architrave. A Powder Room with an ante-chamber is conveniently accessible from the Entry Hall as are two coat closets. The private quarters are comprised of an exceedingly lovely corner Master Bedroom that enjoys picturesque exposures of the city skyline and views down Park Ave. There is also a wonderful Dressing Room, a sunny Study and a south facing marble Bath. In addition the Second Bedroom with ensuite Bath and a giant walk-in closet is enormous, and there is a smaller cozy Third Bedroom also with an ensuite Bath. A large square Kitchen and equally sizable Butler's Pantry enjoy pleasant western outlooks over the trees of the Lehman Garden. The generous Staff Quarters include an oversized bedroom with bath, and then up a half flite of stairs there are two nice additional bedrooms rooms with a shared bath. A wine vault and storage bin are also included in the sale. This truly unique is the embodiment of refined elegance and sophistication. Moreover, it's immense scale and sought after room arrangement makes it the ideal trophy residence.
