Iconic Beaux Arts Penthouse Masterpiece Overlooking Central Park & The Met
Picture a chateau nestled in the verdant hills of the French countryside but with a surprising view of the Louvre off your terrace and salon. This one-of-a-kind Emery Roth-designed full floor penthouse duplex co-op is a dream come true for those who value sophistication and culture.
Spread across 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms totaling more than 5,000 sq. ft. of regal interior space plus several park-facing sun terraces, this august residence offers true indoor-outdoor city living. Elegant original details like marble wood-burning fireplaces, herringbone hardwood floors, and intricate crown moldings complement modern upgrades like new oversized casement windows and a high-end central A/C system.
On the entry level of the home, a private elevator landing opens into a grand marble foyer and gallery with dramatic double height ceilings, a wrought-iron staircase, and a walk-in coat closet. French doors lead out onto a 53-ft wide terrace with breathtaking Central Park and Billionaire's Row views. Baronial formal salon and dining rooms sit on either side of the gallery.
The grand salon runs 39-ft deep and has a handsome marble fireplace. It flows into a stately library with another fireplace, custom built-ins, an attached bar, and a windowed powder room. From the dining room, the home flows through a huge butler's pantry and into a large chef's kitchen with an adjoining breakfast room, glazed terracotta tile floors, and high-end stainless steel appliances from Viking and Sub-Zero. Finishing this level are a laundry room with a side-by-side washer/dryer as well as a guest bedroom and staff quarters with easy access to a windowed full bathroom.
The windowed staircase leads up to a private second level with three main bedrooms, each of which has access to an incredible wraparound terrace. The front primary suite boasts ample closet and storage space as well as a windowed en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower and deep soaking tub. The rear primary bedroom as well as the additional secondary bedroom each have private closets and their own windowed en-suites.
993 Fifth Avenue is an architecturally significant Emery Roth co-op with a lovely limestone façade and an unbeatable Upper East Side address. Nestled across the street from Central Park and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the building has full-time staff, security, private storage, and a fitness center. It is moments from high-end dining and shopping options and is also close to Neue Galerie and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Pied-a-terre are welcome. A ground floor in-law/office/staff unit may also be purchased separately.
