The epitome of elegance and class Ė a stunning and historic four bedroom and four-and-a-half bath residence nestled in the very heart of Manhattanís historic Gold Coast. Welcome to 829 Park Avenue, a building whose architectural features have been lauded by the prestigious American Institute of Architects in the 2010 edition of the Instituteís highly-regarded book, the AIA Guide to New York City.
Originally constructed between 1910 and 1912, this elegant triplex, located in one of the first of the luxurious apartment buildings to be constructed on Park Avenue, has been lovingly renovated by its owner into a spectacular custom-crafted maisonette. Its cleverly reconfigured layout lends it the feel and ambiance of a classic townhouse. Its meticulously-designed interiors seamlessly combine Old World charm with all the conveniences that modern technology has to offer. The residenceís piŤce de rťsistance? The coveted private elevator landings that open up on to the first and second floors of this impressive triplex and that lend a whole new meaning to the concept of door-to-door luxury and service.
Grand and distinct, the residenceís lush interiors feature a formal entry hallway, and a beautiful formal dining room replete with Venetian plaster walls, custom cabinetry, antique stained glass and pocket doors, and herringbone floors. A service entrance, located off the formal dining room and kitchen, facilitates the deliveries of caterers and allows for easy movement of staff. The large, state-of-the-art windowed gourmet kitchen would make any chef proud: custom-made cabinets, top-of-the-line appliances such as Miehle and Subzero, and a delicately-curved wall which lends the kitchen and the residence a distinctly unique look. An impressive and beautifully-proportioned grand living room, graced with windows on both of its sides, coffered ceilings, antique Pier glass mirrors, a wood-burning fireplace, and a powder room, round out the triplexís first floor. A graceful staircase in the gallery, fitted with custom-made rails and balustrades, leads one to the second floor. A large library, custom-crafted for the residence in North Hampshire, England, harkens back to a world of English stateliness and gentility, with its custom-built antique English pine millwork, coffered ceilings and cabinetry, gas-burning fireplace, doors crafted of Gesso molding and, should one desire to relax, a cleverly-concealed large screen television, and a wet bar and refrigerator. The second floor is also home to the master bedroom and its spacious marble-clad bath, oversized claw tub, radiant floor heating, steam shower, two dressing rooms replete with mahogany cabinetry, and a private elevator that leads directly into the master bedroom suite. Two additional windowed bedrooms with custom millwork and ensuite baths complete the second floor.
The third floor contains yet another bedroom, also with an ensuite bath, that is currently being used as a theater and media room. It features state-of-the-art sound systems and is especially ideal for entertaining guests. The floor also contains a wonderful cedar closet. The entire residence effortlessly combines elegance with comfort and an ease in entertaining in a manner befitting the rich history of the building in which it is located.
