Located on East 68th Street between Madison and Park Avenues, this brilliantly designed and impeccably renovated home combines the original living room in one of New York’s most stately mansions with three sublime bedrooms, two renovated bathrooms, and an exquisite eat-in chef’s kitchen recently renovated to the highest standards. The apartment is situated on the parlor floor of the Dunham Residence, a spectacular 25’ wide Beaux-Arts style limestone mansion designed by Carrere and Hastings, Architects of the New York Public Library and the nearby Frick Mansion. The home lies close to Central Park on a prime tree-lined residential block among other important early New York mansions designed by such renowned architects as McKim Mead & White, Delano & Aldrich, John Duncan, and C.P.H. Gilbert. The apartment maintains the house’s original grand ceiling heights in excess of 13 feet, full-height carved walnut paneling, a wood-burning fireplace with carved walnut over-mantle, built-in bookcases, and dramatic south-facing arched windows with Tiffany stained glass accents. Adjoining this magnificent living room are two floors of additional space, comprised of two private bedrooms with shared bath on the upper level, and an exquisite eat-in kitchen and third bedroom/study and bath on the lower level. The kitchen includes honed Carrera marble countertops, marble and granite tile floor, walnut cabinetry, Miele gas cook top, GE Profile oven, dishwasher, and washer dryer. Custom lighting is installed throughout the apartment. In addition to radiators in the living room and upstairs bathroom, there is a five zone Daikin split heating/AC system with separate controls for each room. There are ample closets throughout, and a large storage bin in the basement. The apartment is one of eight units in a self-managed coop with elevator serving all floors, a security monitoring system, and landscaped roof terrace with picturesque views of the surrounding neighborhood. Co-exclusive.
