Perfectly located on Central Park and 70th Street, high atop one of New York's most coveted pre-war cooperatives, 101 Central Park West, is apartment 17/18G. This grandly scaled and perfectly renovated duplex, with four bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths, is ideally configured for gracious living. Flooded with beautiful natural light in every room, the apartment is also unique in that many of the principal rooms feature corner exposures.
From a semi-private elevator landing, shared with just one other apartment, enter into a gracious entry hall with a dramatic curved stair ascending to the bedroom floor above. Off of this elegant entry radiate the reception rooms, with impressive open western skyline views, and beautiful oblique park views to the northeast.
Ideally designed for entertaining, the classically proportioned living room features a wood-burning fireplace with a handsome carved limestone mantel, coffered ceilings, multiple seating areas, and side views of Central Park. Across the entry hall is a spectacular and large formal dining room with corner exposures to the west and south. French doors lead to a huge but cozy den/library, also a beautiful corner room, with western and northern exposures, and a gracious guest powder room.
Adjacent to the south side of the dining room is the eat-in chef's kitchen, featuring stainless steel appliances, including a Sub Zero refrigerator, 48' Wolf range and Miele dishwasher, as well as extensive custom cabinetry and a built-in banquette for casual dining. With southern and western windows, even the kitchen is light-filled all day. From the kitchen, a back-hallway leads to a separate service entrance and a pantry closet. Also off this hall is the fourth bedroom, with an en-suite bath.
Ascend the handsome stairs to a gracious landing where the home's private bedroom quarters are each in separate wings. The corner primary suite features a huge bedchamber, a home office with pocket doors, a windowed walk-in dressing hall with extensive closet space in custom cabinetry, a separate dressing room, and an en-suite windowed bath with a shower, bathtub and vanity. Off the dressing room is a balcony with side views of Central Park. Across the stair hall are two additional bedroom suites, each with en-suite windowed baths. One features corner exposures while the other has a balcony with park views. A generous laundry room completes this perfect home.
