This majestic residence occupies the entire fourth floor of one of Manhattan's most prestigious limestone prewar cooperatives. Timeless elegance and expansive views of the Metropolitan Museum of Art captivate from the moment you enter. Tremendous energy is echoed in its sunlit, distinguished, 56' of frontage along Museum Mile. True to the original details of the Beaux-Arts architecture imagined by Whitney Warren and Charles D. Your private elevator landing opens into the gracious 16' x 11' central gallery with 11' 8" ceilings that beckons you to the grand living room. The functional design of this commanding room, adorned with intricate woodwork and oversized windows has dramatic, direct, views of the Met. The formal dining room, with access from the central gallery, the living room and the kitchen, was designed with an exquisite allegiance to detail. One need look no further than to the Venetian plaster finishes and the decorative frescoed hand painted ceiling that all bely this fact. Next to the grand living room, a private study is adjoined to a 16' x 19' library with Southern and Eastern exposures which overlooks the Museum's iconic steps and draws your attention South to Central Park. The third wonderful wood burning fireplace entices you to sit and enjoy the company of good books or good friends. Four private salons face South and East with the fourth wood burning fireplace in one of the commodious bedrooms. Your oversized airy kitchen appropriately leads to a large staff room complete with private bath and the apartment's laundry room. The intentional placement of the staff quarters encourages functional and discreet help from behind the scenes. Warren and Wetmore's core principle of creating buildings that fuse architecture and sculpture has never been more evident than in this home. "Kitchen is a virtually staged rendering more
