This is an unparalleled opportunity to own a sprawling residence in one of the crown jewels of Central Park West, The St. Urban.
While the last complete renovation occurred in the late 90's, this apartment has been modified over the years to maintain a grand style. With two of the bathrooms renovated this year, the job to make it your home is easier than ever.
This enormous and exquisite five bedroom and four bathroom home with roughly 3,750 square feet and nearly 11 foot ceilings is a rare example of sheer size and turn-of-the-century elegance. This massive volume of space is further pronounced by sweeping Central Park and Reservoir views from picturesque oversized windows. With two additional bedrooms added to its already exceptional space, it is among a small handful of S-line apartments with enough size and flexibility to create up to six bedrooms, including a park-facing one bedroom suite.
The semi-private landing with only one other residence creates a sense of privacy the moment you step off the elevator. Upon entering the apartment, a gracious gallery inescapably draws you to the immense living room that is warmed with restored prewar details and an ornamental fireplace. Coved ceilings, huge mahogany doors, stunning French doors and classic mouldings effortlessly flow between rooms. The vast formal dining room offers plenty of room to entertain guests while the separate bedroom wings offer considerable options for privacy. The chef's eat-in-kitchen is complete with large high-end appliances is a great space for casual dining and serious cooking. Unlike prior S line sales this unit is already landmark compliant for windows as the co-op has standardized the window design standards upon sale. 5S is brimming with classical pre-war splendor echoing the exemplary exterior architecture all while providing the conveniences for contemporary living in a peaceful Central Park location.
The St. Urban, designed by Robert T. Lyons in 1905, is noteworthy for its strikingly intricate Beaux-Art style, its story-high lantern of copper and its prominent porte-coch re. With a Resident Manager, 24-hour door-men, and two porters, The St. Urban provides white-glove service and security to its residents. Amenities include a state-of-the-art gym, a play area, central laundry, a basketball court and bike room. This is an opportunity not to be missed.
