Property Description

Situated in one of Fifth Avenue's most sought after pre-war cooperatives, this impressive maisonette apartment offers very large-scale rooms with wonderful Georgian architectural detail, including a mahogany paneled dining room/library, mahogany paneled doors and beautiful oak floors inlaid with mahogany. Arriving from the building lobby, one enters into the capacious marble gallery and stair hall that easily accommodates and lends itself to dining. Tall double doors open to the adjacent beautifully paneled library/formal dining room. There is also a guest powder room and a back hallway with access to the professional chef's kitchen with breakfast room and stainless steel and glass cabinetry throughout plus a separate laundry room. The upper level with access from the grand staircase or from the lobby by the building elevator, also offers an architecturally pleasing galleried landing opening to the beautiful large drawing room with fireplace and direct views of Central Park. This floor also comprises a luxurious master bedroom suite, also facing the Park, with a spacious bedroom, an extensive walk-in dressing closet, and a sitting room with large bathroom. The gallery in this upper level is arranged as a pleasing series of inter-connected areas that also give access to a second master bedroom and three smaller bedrooms plus two bathrooms. A second staircase leads down the rear hallway on the lower level. 960 Fifth was constructed in 1927 by the team of Rosario Candela, famous for his expansive Georgian apartment designs, and Warren and Wetmore, the Beaux-Arts designers of Grand Central terminal. The Georgian Suite is a private set of dining rooms with a resident French chef catering to the needs of the owners and there is a remarkable glass-walled penthouse gym with terrace, undoubtedly the most appealing gym of any pre-war co-operative in the city. This offering presents a rare opportunity to acquire a uniquely special apartment in one of the finest and most prestigious cooperatives in Manhattan.
