The most wonderful apartment in the best building in Manhattan. Designed by Rosario Candela, architect of the most beautiful buildings in New York City, the full 12th floor residence at 960 Fifth Avenue has four grand and inviting rooms and ten magnificent windows stretched across Fifth Avenue featuring cinematic views of Central Park. Ceiling height in the residence is 13 feet in the major rooms and 11 feet in ancillary bedrooms. In addition to the scale of all the rooms, it is rare to have a living room, dining room, library and a corner primary bedroom suite all facing Central Park. The 12th floor is the perfect height, clearing the treetops and encompassing the West Side skyline as well as Central Park South, while also embracing the green of the trees and magic of Central Park. With warm light and views over townhouses to the south and open city views to the north, the apartment floats over the prettiest part of The Upper East Side. Architecturally, the 12th floor at 960 Fifth Avenue has everything: incomparably elegant proportions - the living room is 36 feet by 28 feet with 13 foot ceilings - five wood burning fireplaces, as many bedrooms and bathrooms as you could ever want, as well as staff rooms, offices, wide hallways and a kitchen built for grand scale entertaining, but easily modified for someone who wants to spend time in the kitchen together. This apartment manages to be breathtaking and intimate, comfortable, elegant, charming and bold. Most of all, it is memorable, much like its former owner who encompassed all those things and more. You will not find an apartment with better architecture, design, views or provenance. The 12th floor sale also includes two “staff rooms” located on the 3rd floor of 3 East 77th Street which adjoins 960 Fifth, as well as two large storage rooms. 960 Fifth Avenue is number one on many “finest buildings in Manhattan” lists. Services include a 24-hour doorman, multiple porters, and a resident manager, as well as maid and laundry service. 960 Fifth Avenue also has a fully-staffed dining room, in-house chef, catering kitchen, a roof top exercise room, roof terrace for owners, and private storage. Pied a terre ownership is permitted, but financing is not. This is a pet-friendly cooperative. There is a 2% transfer fee payable by the purchaser.
