Freshly renovated to provide the perfect balance between lavish entertainment and everyday living, this classic 8 encompasses approximately 2,665 sq. ft. and boasts oversized rooms and top of the line finishes throughout. The unexpected modern amenities combined with the classic pre-war charm truly put this Park Avenue Coop in league of its own. From the grandly proportioned entry gallery unfolds an expansive living room with oversized windows and a wood burning fireplace. Doorways between the living and dining rooms have been raised and widened to enhance the flow between the entertaining spaces. Off of the dining room is a sleek, sophisticated bar, concealed behind 8 sliding raised-panel doors. The original kitchen was re-configured to allow for full-service cooking and includes a Miele refrigerator and dishwasher, a Capitol range, and a full-sized washing machine and vented gas dryer. An additional, more casual eating space, also functions as a convertible lounge/bedroom and has an en-suite bath. Off of the west side of the gallery, a private hallway leads to two secondary bedrooms each with en-suite baths, and at the end of the hall, a luxurious master suite. The Master Suite has open sky views, rare for a 2nd floor apartment, 31 feet of closet space, and a lavish master bath with floor to ceiling statuary marble, nickel framed mirrors, soaking tub, heated floors, and white Duravit lacquered vanities. Located within a prestigious 1924 J.E.R. Carpenter designed building, the apartment is characterized by sought-after architectural details, such as high ceilings, herringbone hardwood floors, and period moldings. Sun-filled with incredible scale and charm, the apartment was also designed through an eye for evolving technology including fiber optics wiring to every room, Central Nest Controlled HVAC, and in-ceiling Sonos controlled music. All the principal rooms in the apartment face over the tree-lined block of E 68th street and are filled with abundant sunlight. 655 Park Avenue is a full-service co-operative apartment building and spans the entire block between 67th and 68th streets on Park Avenue. Two storage units in the basement transfer with the apartment. Pets are welcome.
