An Upper East Side Apartment Steps from Central Park Lists with Sophistication in Spades

Along a coveted stretch of Park Avenue and just two blocks away from Central Park, a spacious and airy apartment is up for sale. Full of light and timeless architectural details, it represents the Upper East Side‘s posh persona well and is now listed for $5.995 million.

Situated on the second floor of a 1929-built co-op, the rooms are in an ideal spot to display calming leafy or snowy views—a rare perk in Manhattan. To reach this delightful height, take the elevator up to the corner unit’s private landing. From there, the entry gallery welcomes all guests with its sophisticated, less-is-more aesthetic.

A perfect home for glamorous hosting, there are three vast spaces for entertaining in one part of the apartment while the two bedrooms are tucked privately in a wing of their own. Good news in wintertime, a fireplace is never far wherever you are. Whether you’re chatting with friends in the library, gathered around the dining room table, or heading to bed in the primary suite, a crackling hearth can always set a cozy mood.

When more in the mood for fine dining or drinks out, however, there are plenty of prestigious places to go nearby. Head over to The Plaza’s iconic Palm Court, the Pierre Hotel, or to any of the charming neighborhood restaurants.

Linda Reiner and Lisa Tarnopol Deslauriers of Warburg Realty have the Park Avenue listing, which will cost a new owner a pretty penny. To put it in perspective, you can also get a 7,100-square-foot Connecticut home by the water right now for about the same price.
