About the Property
PRIME FIFTH AVENUE FULL-FLOOR PREWAR CONDO WITH DIRECT PARK VIEWS AND RENOVATION PLANS IN PLACE!
A truly incredible, 11-room, 5-bedroom prewar residence in a top, full-service white-glove condominium, with all major rooms directly overlooking Central Park. The Fifth Floor at 817 Fifth Avenue maintains the elegance and grandeur of its original classic prewar layout, offering an impeccable meeting of entertaining and living spaces. Directly overlooking Central Park is an oversized formal living room with a wood-burning fireplace, a formal dining room, and a glamorous corner primary bedroom suite. With approximately 50 feet of park frontage, all these rooms offer spectacular Central Park views through breathtakingly tall 6-foot windows. Perfectly situated adjacent to the living room is a gracious library.
Along the building’s Northern side are 3 additional bedrooms, each of which has marvelously grand proportions, with abundant windows and light and overlooking beautiful, tree-lined 63rd Street and a glimpse of central park. The windowed, eat-in kitchen area is massive, including a butler’s pantry, breakfast room, staff rooms, and a bathroom, which can be repurposed for an additional bedroom with an en-suite bathroom or a large office. In addition, there is a laundry room and there are 4 full-windowed bathrooms with the ability to add another powder room. The apartment has striking prewar detail throughout, including high ceilings, decorative molding, and original hardwood floors, herringbone-patterned in the living room, dining room, primary bedroom, and library/den. Central air-conditioning is permitted and there is a private storage unit located in the building’s basement.
A custom renovation can be completed in 10-11 months with fully approved plans from the Department of Buildings & Landmarks, and a contractor and architect ready to go!
