This outstanding penthouse was made for stylish entertaining, with its magnificent views, prime location and gracious layout.
From the moment you enter the gallery from the private elevator landing, you know you are in a special apartment. The wrap terrace, with its panoramic vista of the park and the city, will take your breath away, and with the floor to yourself, there is nothing to disturb your privacy.
The apartment was designed by Maison Jansen for Georgia O'Keeffe's sister, the Palm Beach socialite Anita Ten Eyck Young, with beautiful architectural details throughout. Boiserie panels with elegant moldings line the major rooms and the solid oak Parquet de Versailles floors were specially brought over from Europe.
The grand living room has 180° views of Central Park, accentuated by the five bay windows with park views; it also boasts a wood burning fireplace with marble mantelpiece and built-in bookcases, and accommodates multiple seating areas. Double doors open into the dining room, with its antique 18th century decorative panels and views of the park.
Discreetly located off the dining room are the windowed kitchen, a butler's pantry and laundry room. There is a guest bedroom and a full bathroom; the guest room has views of the Carlyle Hotel and can also be used as an office.
The private bedroom wing is quiet with incredible light and open city views. The master bedroom faces east and north, and has an en suite marble bathroom. The second bedroom faces east and south, has its own bathroom and an abundance of closets, as well as access to the south terrace.
The apartment transfers with two additional staff rooms and a full bathroom on the second floor, plus a storage bin. The building has central air.
Designed by Sylvan and Robert Bien and built as a coop in 1959 by William R. Buxbaum, 900 Fifth Avenue is a white glove, full service building, with a 24-hour doorman and concierge. The building has a garage which is directly accessed from the apartment elevator. There also is a gym and roofdeck, plus a bike room that provides bicycles for tenant usage. Small pets are permitted.
900 Fifth has an ideal location at the foot of Museum Mile, next to the Frick Museum, steps away from the Boat Pond and other Central Park attractions, and the best shops and restaurants in New York are in easy walking distance.
