Paris in New York best describes this ideally located Park Avenue estate cooperative. Steps from Central Park, with Madison Avenue shops, charming restaurants and excellent schools nearby and conveniently located to all Manhattan has to offer, this spacious, sunny apartment has been beautifully maintained and updated. There are perfectly proportioned rooms with 9 foot ceilings radiating off a large central gallery. To the left is a South facing living room with European townhouse views and tremendous light; to the right is a spacious formal dining room that overlooks the tranquil new landscaped building terrace. The result is a 60'expanse that lends itself to great entertaining. Beyond the gallery through French doors are 2 large split bedrooms with en-suite baths and a dressing hallway. The South facing bedroom was used as a library; the North bedroom was used as the Master Bedroom, but this is easily reversed. There are simple classic moldings and parquet floors throughout.The renovated windowed kitchen has excellent storage and counter space, a Sub Zero refrigerator and Bosch cook top and oven, 2 Bosch dishwashers, and washer/dryer. Beyond the kitchen is a large staff room and full bath that can be used as a cheerful breakfast room or home office. There is a service entrance for deliveries, and a lovely powder room off the entrance hall. A storage unit conveys with the apartment. 700 Park Avenue was built as a coop to marry the scale and amenities of the grand prewar buildings around it with modern amenities including oversize windows, larger closets, central air conditioning, fitness center and garage (with discounted rates for tenant/shareholders.) Known for white glove service and staff, the building has recently been totally renovated and is now state of the art. After extensive facade work, the building created a striking new lobby, new elevator cabs and the best fitness center on Park Avenue. Additionally, there is a pristine landscaped garden and deck on the second floor and a roof deck with extraordinary views in every direction. Welcome home!
