The most powerful word in New York City real estate is: location. At the pinnacle of NYCâ€™s location is 5th Avenue. Perfectly nestled on 82nd Street between 5th Avenue and Madison Avenue is a limestone, 5-story co-op with only 13 apartments and only 400 feet from The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Constructed at the turn of the century in 1910, with many architectural and aesthetic elements surviving. Ascending the six stairs to the building entrance you will be greeted with wrought iron doors that lead to the main vestibule. Equipped with a virtual doorman for deliveries, the sunlight infused lobby allows for a moment of respite. Taking the elevator to the fifth floor, you will notice only a handful of apartments, in the very hotel-like hallway. Open your apartment door and you will suddenly be taken aback by the level of care and quality found inside. To your left is the windowed bathroom with beautiful tiling, pedestal sink, and glass enclosed shower. To your right through the entry hall is the large living room. Central to the room is an operable wood burning fireplace complete with a custom mantle. French doors open to the buildingâ€™s only stone balcony overlooking the tree lined street with views of The Met. Step back inside from the balcony and the gold leaf Stark mural will capture your attention, comprising of three panels and over six feet each in length. Beyond the living area is the galley kitchen with an amazing grey silestone counter and backsplash, tiled floor, complete with Viking appliances and a wine cooler. Passing through the living area to the bedroom, you will sigh a most relaxing ahh. Custom built-ins allow for maximum storage, and a window seat provide a perch above the street for an evening rose, or a morning espresso. Throughout the apartment you will find crown moulding, custom wallpaper, high ceilings and hardwood floors. Additional storage is found in the basement for an additional fee. Furniture is available for purchase with apartment upon separate agreed upon price.
