Fashion Designer Adrienne Vittadini Lists Her Glamorous, Longtime Fifth Avenue Co-Op
Fashion designer Adrienne Vittadini’s illustrious Upper East Side co-op evokes old-world glamour, or at least the New York City glamour of the ’90s. Vittadini, who purchased the property back in 1986, recently listed her longtime abode for $7.5 million as she now spends more time at her Florida and Italy properties, says a rep for Brown Harris Stevens.
Located along a peaceful portion of Fifth Avenue, this two-bedroom, four-bathroom apartment on the ninth floor overlooks Central Park and the waters of its famed reservoir. Stepping inside, guests are led through a thirty-six-foot entry gallery that opens up to a fabulous living and entertaining space. Grand picture frame windows let natural light stream in through the Park’s treetops while a wood-burning fireplace and adjacent library create a cozy, lived-in atmosphere.
Various customizations can be made to adapt to potential homeowners’ needs. If the spacious primary and guest bedrooms don’t suffice, the library has the potential to be converted back into a third bedroom. Furthermore, a double room currently configured as an office and laundry room previously acted as a double staff room, complete with an en-suite bath. New Yorkers often clamor for more space, and between the plentiful living space and the possibility for additional accommodations, there is no lack of room here.
From crystal chandeliers to large mirrors and gold columns, Vittadini’s decor features traditional glamour that aligns with the 1115 Fifth Avenue structure’s classic architecture and location. We’ve seen fashion trends recently skewing towards ’90s style lately, so will retro interior trends such as these follow suit?
Kathleen Sloane of Brown Harris Stevens holds the listing, where buyers are in good company on the Upper East Side. The famed neighborhood’s former residents include Gianni Versace, Harry Winston, and Eleanor Roosevelt.
