Contract Signed

Elegant proportions, generously scaled rooms, high ceilings, original prewar details, sun-splashed interiors, and custom finishes of the highest quality are all here for the discerning buyer who demands the very best.

The elevator opens to a private vestibule. The front door leads to a large 10'x14'7" center marble gallery that connects all major entertaining rooms, through stately mahogany doors, and a separate hallway leading to the home's private quarters. The gallery announces that you have entered a rare and special residence. The corner living room has double exposures, east and north, with enchanting vistas of the limestone mansions, church steeples, and intense greenery along East 73rd Street. Three oversized windows allow natural light to bathe the interior. An original marble mantle surrounds the fireplace and serves as a focal point of the room. A passage with wet bar connects to the library which is brilliantly illuminated by double exposures, east and south. Handsome bookcases and built-ins provide a warm and comfortable feeling to the room. There is a well-appointed full-bath that can serve as a powder room for guests. Off the library, there is a separate 9'x8' alcove study/sunroom perfect for a desk and home office. With minor alterations, the existing library with its full bath can easily be recreated into a 4th bedroom where currently the lovely connected sunroom is used as the owner's home office.

On the opposite side of the living room flowing gracefully though French doors, the dining room is spacious for large gatherings while feeling intimate enough for smaller dinner parties. Beautiful hardwood floors, two windows, and a second fireplace add to the beauty of this room. The kitchen is open and bright with marble counters; Miele, Thermador, and Subzero appliances; and magnificently crafted custom cabinets. The breakfast area has a banquette and is the perfect spot for casual meals.

Three bedrooms are located off a private hallway. At the end of the hall, the grand master suite faces east. Large windows showcase the lovely natural light and views of the surrounding architecture. Plentiful closets and storage abound. There is an exquisitely appointed master en suite bath with large soaking tub, shower, double sinks, and private water closet. The other two bedrooms are large with many built-ins, closets, and en suite baths. There is a Miele stacked washer and dryer, hardwired stereo system, incredible custom moldings, and new windows throughout the apartment. In addition, two over-sized storage bins transfer with the apartment.

920 Fifth Avenue has an impeccable provenance. Architect J.E.R. Carpenter, dubbed "the architect who shaped Fifth Avenue" lived is what is to be his crowning jewel, 920 Fifth Avenue. The building has attentive 24 hour doormen, resident manager, roof terrace for shareholders, and a brand new state-of-the art gym. This is Fifth Avenue at its finest!
