1088 PARK AVENUE
Fittingly located two blocks from the Guggenheim Museum, this classic Park Avenue residence is a work of art! Elegant, elevated, and exquisite are words that come to mind when one enters this Classic 8 reimagined into a Sprawling 7. Renovated from top to bottom with meticulous attention to detail, this 3-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home is a perfect blend of seamless, modern functionality and original prewar details. Top-of-the-line fixtures, finishes, and fittings throughout cater to the homebuyer with refined tastes and exacting standards. Smartly laid out with no wasted space, this impressive home is anchored by an elegant central gallery, which one enters after progressing through the foyer from a semi-private landing (only two apartments per floor). The home's sprawling living room boasts pristine herringbone hardwood floors, a wood burning fireplace for cozy winter evenings, and multiple beautiful features that one finds throughout the home, including casement windows, crown and baseboard moldings, and tall ceilings. The home's expansive and immaculate eat-in kitchen was created by combining the original kitchen with the butler's pantry and one of two maid's rooms, yielding a space worthy of the most discerning home chef. It flaunts ample cabinet and countertop space, a dining island, and a full suite of high-end appliances including a restaurant-quality La Cornue range handcrafted in France, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and wine cooler, and a washer/dryer. The home is further enhanced by 2.5 spa-caliber renovated bathrooms, a formal dining room currently being used as a den, a home office, a private storage space, and central A/C. 1088 Park Avenue, erected in 1925, is one of the most prestigious and architecturally significant buildings in Carnegie Hill. Built in the neo-Classical style and designed by Mott B. Schmidt, the lauded architect for the Astor, Moran, and Vanderbilt families, the building is distinguished by a three-story limestone base, an arched two-story grand canopied entrance, a vaulted lobby, and at its center, a large Italianate courtyard garden. Residents of this white glove, pet-friendly cooperative enjoy a fitness center, a bike room, and the highest level of service from its large, impeccably trained staff. Up to 50% financing is permitted, and there is a 2% flip tax paid by the buyer.
