Perched high above the treetops, this truly magnificent apartment features spectacular vistas over Central Park's dramatic seasonal foliage changes. Soaring high ceilings, generously- proportioned windows with Juliet balconies, as well as unexpectedly open exposures in four directions enhance the sun-flooded and bright nature of the residence. Fantastically reimagined and with an eye to a connoisseur's lifestyle, the apartment's bold and impeccable presentation elegantly marries its classic and gracious design with the highest level of technology.
Accessed by private elevator landing, the Entry Hall opens directly to the immense Gallery, a stunning corner Living Room, and the large square Dining Room. Connected en enfilade and with a monumental sense of openness and proportion, all rooms face west with direct views towards Central Park. A Coat Vestibule and Powder Room are conveniently accessible from the Entry Hall.
There is also a handsome paneled Library with outlooks over 67th Street that further
complements the glorious public rooms of this stately residence.
Beyond, a state-of-the-art Kitchen is supported by a Pantry, a Laundry Room, a Staff Room and Bath, and very ample storage.
Set apart by a generous Gallery Hallway, the private quarters include a marvelous corner Primary Bedroom with an enormous large spa-like bathroom, and abundant closet space. There are two further Bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom and lovely open views.
Throughout the apartment, attention to fine detail is in evidence. Thoughtful consideration was especially given to the movement and management of light within the apartment. The lighting system addresses gallery-level demands for art display, as well as those of a conventional residence. Finishes and surface materials were chosen with an eye to softening the more contemporary lines of the space and include Juno Limestone panel floors, ebonized walnut paneling, Italian leather paneling, and angled trim in bronze.
2 East 67th Street, was designed by the legendary architect Rosario Candela at the apex of his celebrated career and is one of the Upper East Side's finest addresses. Completed in 1928, the handsome neoclassical limestone façade incorporates an upper-level loggia and is notable for its restrained and elegant vernacular. Setting a standard for refined luxury living, the building's original design included two duplex maisonettes, one duplex penthouse, and nine full-floor simplexes. Each apartment thus wraps the northwest corner of the building and benefits from glorious views over Central Park, which is steps across Fifth Avenue. In close proximity as well are many of New York's best shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Also known as 856 Fifth Avenue, 2 East 67th Street is a premiere white-glove cooperative, and its impeccable staffing includes a full-time doorman and porters. The building also features a state-of-the-art fitness center and offers private storage bins and wine cellar storage. This exceptional residence imparts a high concept modernity to a classic and highly-coveted New York address and is remarkable for its understated yet grand luxe sensibility.
