720 Park Avenue, a remarkable building from the team of Rosario Candela and Eliot Cross, was completed in 1929. This incomparable apartment within this historic structure is grand yet gracious. The scale of the public rooms is immense and yet there is a tranquility and sense of privacy throughout. All entertaining rooms and the corner master bedroom face Park Avenue. This home is the beautiful combination of the master craftsmanship of the 1920's with all the luxury and amenities of today. From the private elevator landing you step into a grand entrance gallery with amazing, original door frames, crown and ceiling moldings. Three ceiling coves within the 10' 5" ceilings allow the light to wash over you and reflect back up from the stunning marble floor. A powder room with private sitting area is adjacent. This magnificent foyer leads to the elegance of the living room, library and dining room all with wood burning fireplaces. The living room is baronial in size and elegantly appointed with intricate picture, crown and ceiling moldings and carved pediments above the doors to the library and dining room. The wide plank oak floors, wood burning fireplace and oversized windows with decorative ironwork beyond them allow in streams of eastern light. The library and formal dining room flank the living room. The library is wood paneled with a stunning carved wood and marble fireplace mantle. The formal dining room, as the living room, has the outstanding original decorative details and its own wood burning fireplace. Just off the formal dining room is the large, windowed butler's pantry with plenty of storage, counter space, dishwasher and sink; a perfect place for staging formal dinner parties. Within it is also a large safe presently, and cleverly, used as wine storage. The kitchen is fit for a chef. Large and user friendly it has a side by side Sub-Zero refrigerator, an eight burner Garland stove with double oven, separate, overhead broiler and professional grade exhaust hood. The dishwasher, washing machine and dryer are all Asko. A large private vestibule provides a buffer between the kitchen and the service elevator. The large corner master bedroom suite with south and east exposures and wood burning fireplace with carved marble mantle is purely tranquil. A large windowed bath and generous closet space complete this lovely room. A broad hall takes you to the other four sleeping rooms, three looking south over East 70th Street. The fifth bedroom is reached by a lovely winding staircase again adding to the unique and gracious character of this home. Each sleeping room has its own full bath. Throughout the private rooms are the original hardwood six panel doors with bullet hinges, knobs and keyholes. Up a small staircase off the kitchen you'll find a double and single maid's quarters with a large, full, windowed bath just down the hall. Within the servant's area are a Miehle washer and dryer as well as terrific closet and storage space.
