Once in a lifetime does the most remarkable home come to the market. This is one of those, from its provenance to its breadth of over 100 feet precisely centered over Central Park with west and east windows at each end. Few buildings accommodate a full floor apartment comprised of approximately 6,500 square feet of interior space. No other home on Central Park offers a 38' x 20' living room with 18' 3" ceilings and three arched doors, each soaring over 15' high, and opening onto the terrace and the park. This is a perfect home that combines oversized windows with views, and still has walls to accommodate a great art collection or over scaled art work.
Formerly owned by the renowned Alice Tully, THE 27TH FLOOR has a wonderful history and was created to be a showplace for her art collection and famous soirees.
The entry gallery, with its own view of the park, is a hint of the glorious rooms it opens onto, a perfect space connecting the formal dining room and grand living room.
Beyond the living room is a room originally designed to be the home's library, at 28'x19', three oversized windows and a fireplace, it is currently the primary bedroom and sitting area. There is a spacious dressing room, en-suite bath with separate shower, and soaking tub. There is direct and access to a secondary bedroom currently set up as a home gym.
In addition to the primary suite and gym, there are five secondary bedrooms, each generously sized, most with en-suite bathrooms in addition to two powder rooms, all with open southern exposures and full of sunlight.
The lovely, windowed kitchen had been renovated and is in pristine condition. Pocket doors open to a paneled media room with a wall of bookcases and room to add a banquet and big breakfast or casual dinner table. The kitchen has stainless steel high end appliances including a Thermador stove with double ovens, two subzero refrigerators, Perlick icemaker, and two subzero wine coolers, 2 Miele dishwashers, multiple pantries, separate laundry room and butler's pantry with access to the dining room. Perfect for entertaining on any scale.
