885 Park Avenue 8B New York NY 10075

Offered in quietly elegant, turn-key condition, Apartment 8B is a prewar residence which has been meticulously renovated to the highest standards. This lovely home boasts splendid scale, with high ceilings, gorgeous herringbone pattern parquet floors and light-flooded southern exposures from oversized windows in most rooms. Perfectly positioned at the northeast corner of Park Avenue and East 78th Street within the landmark protected boundaries of Upper East Side Historic District, this prestigious 1927 cooperative apartment building was designed by noted American architects Schwartz & Gross. A semi-private elevator landing on the eighth floor opens onto a Gallery, a generous square which provides seamless access to the impressive reception rooms and commodious bedroom wing of this extremely versatile floorplan. The expansive, south-facing Living Room features a wood-burning fireplace and, measuring almost 30 linear feet, is ideally suited for entertaining. The Living Room adjoins an inviting Library outfitted with a built-in Bar, a Media Closet, a wall of custom-designed bookshelves and a Powder Room. The private residential wing is comprised of 3 spacious Bedrooms, each with a pristine windowed, en-suite Bathroom finished in marble and ample closets. The over-sized primary Bedroom Suite enjoys sunny southern prospects over the quiet, tree-lined beauty of East 78th Street, and features beautiful curved walls, and 8 large closets. The graciously proportioned Formal Dining Room also boasts curved walls and herringbone parquet floors. An enormous Eat-In Chef’s Kitchen/Family Room is ideally suited for informal gathering, outfitted with a large breakfast area, media systems, and a desk. Fine custom finishes include millwork of luxurious Bubinga wood and flooring of statuary marble. The Chef’s Kitchen is equipped with a center island and full complement of state-of-the art appliances: a Wolf 6-burner Stove, a Garland Salamander, a Sub-Zero Refrigerator and Freezer , a Sub-Zero 140 bottle wine storage unit, and a Thermador Wall Oven and Microwave. A Laundry closet features a front-loading Maytag Maxima XL- washer and dryer. The Staff Bedroom/Office and a full Bathroom complete the well-considered layout of this beautiful apartment. Updated windows and thermostatically controlled through-wall and central air conditioning have been installed throughout. One of the most sought-after and highly regarded cooperative apartment buildings on the Upper East Side, 885 Park Avenue is well-staffed by a Resident Manager, with 24-hour Doorman and support services. Amenities include a large, recently renovated Fitness Center, a Laundry Room and private storage. There are no Summer Work Rules. The building is Pet Friendly and financing of up to 50 percent of the purchase price is permitted. There is a 3% Flip Tax, payable by the Purchaser. Apartment 8B represents a singular opportunity to secure a truly extraordinary home in the coveted Lenox Hill neighborhood: thoughtfully designed, finished to perfection and in move-in condition.
