Gut-Renovated Fifth Avenue Sky Retreat Overlooking Central Park Reservoir
Welcome to this dreamy Fifth Avenue condo with two wraparound terraces and stunning city views, a pristine 3-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home that blends French palace charm with contemporary city luxury. Prewar details like ceiling medallions, crown molding, and herringbone hardwood floors are enhanced by custom Clive Christian millwork and designer wallpaper. Oversized windows look out to the east, west, and south, and a pair of spacious terraces provide the ideal setting for urban gardening, entertaining, and al fresco dining.
This 2,458 sq. ft. home begins with a marble foyer and gallery adorned with a chic powder room and a large coat closet. A formal living room with a custom wet bar and double exposure has access to a terrace, formal dining room, and library/den with a decorative fireplace and custom built-ins. Just off the dining room is a country-style windowed kitchen equipped with sleek marble countertops, a brass trim mosaic tile backsplash, a stainless steel farmhouse sink, custom Clive Christian cabinets, a breakfast nook with banquette seating, and a suite of high-end appliances from Miele, SMEG, and Sub-Zero.
The primary bedroom has a pair of reach-in closets, terrace access, an exercise room, and a spacious en-suite bathroom with double sinks, pink onyx accents, a walk-in shower, and a deep soaking tub. It also has a massive dressing room with custom storage that can easily be converted into another bedroom. The remaining bedroom has private closet space and a full en-suite bathroom.
1049 Fifth Avenue offers residents a prime Upper East Side address with easy access to world class amenities like Central Park, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. The building has a full-time doorman and concierge service, and it is moments from high-end shopping and dining options. The 4/5/6 subway lines are less than three blocks away. Pets are welcome.
