One enters into an impressive entrance gallery that has a walk-in coat closet and exquisite floor-to-ceiling glass and steel sliding doors that allow for separation between the entertainment spaces and the private quarters. Off the gallery is a grand living and dining room that is 26'6" by 19'6" with three huge windows facing east overlooking the beautiful trees on Park Avenue. The stunning room has a wood burning fireplace that is Moleanos honed limestone, and there are custom Afrormosia hardwood bookshelves and sliding panels which conceal a television.

In the corner is the sun-drenched master suite with three large windows that faces south and east with views over Park Avenue and the church. There is a large walk-in dressing room with custom built-ins and a lavish en-suite renovated windowed master bathroom that faces south. The bathroom is finished with Imperial Danby honed marble countertops and Glacier glass tiles on the floors and walls; it has two sinks and an enormous walk-in shower with two rain-head showers. There is a second bedroom suite that faces east over Park Avenue and a renovated hallway bathroom with a walk-in shower with Glacier glass mosaic tiles and Avorio honed limestone counters. This home is a true architectural masterpiece. The building allows 50% financing and there is a 2% flip tax. Built in 1916, this white-glove prewar co-operative has a fitness center and bicycle room.
