This grand and sprawling 8 into 7 room home (either 3 bedrooms or 2 bedrooms with a library) with 3 full baths and two staff rooms is now available for the first time in nearly fifty years. There is a long, dramatic central gallery, ideally suited both for art and entertaining. Off a private hallway are both the master and second bedrooms, each of which have their own en-suite baths and large walk-in closets. The third bedroom, or library, is entered from the gallery and features a dry bar, and all the bedrooms/library have oversized windows facing East. The expansive living and dining rooms flow as a contiguous space, and the dining room is flanked by two decorative, non-structural columns demarcating it from the living room. From the dining room one looks West across an expanse of townhouses and architecturally pleasing buildings to a glimpse of Central Park, rare for a dining room exposure. The living room is anchored by a wood-burning fireplace surmounted by an antique French oak mantle, and features two windows facing East over Park Avenue with townhouse, ecclesiastical, high-rise, and skyline views. The functional butler's pantry flows into the adjacent, spacious kitchen which has a large window with views similar to the dining room's. There is a washer and dryer enclosed in a large kitchen closet. Off of the kitchen and pantry are two West-facing staff rooms.
