Property Description

Triple Mint Park Avenue Penthouse

This meticulously renovated 5,200 Sq Ft (approx.) penthouse duplex with wonderful Central Park and Manhattan Skyline views is located on the 19th and 20th floors of one of Park Avenue's most prestigious white-glove Prewar Cooperatives at the corner of East 71st Street.

An oversized private elevator landing opens onto an elegant 21 ft. entrance gallery with an enormous picture window capturing breathtaking views of the Manhattan Skyline and Central Park. The gallery leads to a massive 35 x 22 Ft living room with soaring 11 ft. ceilings and three exposures; the Western exposure captures outstanding skyline and Central Park views. At the opposite end of the gallery is a wonderful corner library and a gracious formal dining room with floor-to-ceiling French doors opening onto the penthouse's north terrace. The vast and beautifully renovated eat-in-kitchen boasts three exposures and is bathed in natural sunlight throughout the day. The Western views from the kitchen captures Central Park and open blue skies, a rare feature in a Manhattan Pre-war kitchen. Adjacent to the kitchen is a large family room/fourth bedroom with a sunny Eastern exposure, and an adjoining guest bathroom. A separate laundry room, and a staff suite with a large private bath and a private terrace, complete this wing of the home.

A gracious staircase leads to the bedroom level of the penthouse on the 20th Fl. At the top of the staircase are French doors opening onto a wonderfully landscaped double terrace with open views westward to Central Park. Each of the three bedroom suites on this level are completely private with no adjoining walls, and each has a renovated en-suite windowed bathroom. The enormous corner primary bedroom suite enjoys floor-to-ceilings window and French doors opening onto the stunning terrace with Central Park views. The oversized suite has excellent closet space and a separate dressing room opening into a beautifully renovated sundrenched bathroom.

A staff room on the second floor of the building is available for sale separately.

730 Park Avenue was built in 1929, and designed in the golden age of New York apartment house construction by F. Burrall Hoffman Jr. and Lafayette A. Goldstone in the Neo-Renaissance and Neo-Jacobean style. Standing 20 stately stories on the Southwest corner of Park Avenue and 71st Street, the building contains 40 generously proportioned apartments. Residents enter via an impressive entrance on a quiet side street, and receive the services of two full-time doormen, a Resident Manager, and several handymen. This prestigious full-service cooperative also offers a fitness room, storage, and an excellent location in the center of the Upper East Side, minutes from fashionable boutiques, premier restaurants and art galleries on Madison Avenue. There is a 3% flip tax paid by the purchaser, and the building now permits 50% financing.

Quick Profile

Exuding a cosmopolitan, refined air that is reminiscent of Paris or other European cities, the Upper East Side (the UES, to local cognoscenti) has a reputation as being a bastion of wealth and privilege. Even though it was built by American “royalty” families like the Vanderbilts, Roosevelts, Kennedys, Carnegies and Rockefellers, whose elaborate mansions once anchored Fifth Avenue, there are affordable housing options throughout the neighborhood. The further east you move, away from Central Park and the more commercial avenues, the more likely you are to find quiet, tree-lined streets with historic townhouses and brownstones. Keep your eye out for reasonably priced apartments in pre-war low-rise and even a few high-rise buildings.

With abundant, beautifully landscaped green spaces, including the oasis of Central Park acting like a backyard, the area is quiet and lushly green. You can relax and unwind in John Jay Park, Carl Schurz Park or take a stroll along the East River Promenade. The whole neighborhood seems isolated from the workaday chaos of the city at large. Add to that the history of the neighborhood and the abundance of cultural institutions, and you have a uniquely welcoming neighborhood.

Known for its abundance of high-end retail shopping, especially on Madison Avenue, the Upper East Side is host to the Barneys New York flagship department store. Here you can find upscale goods, fashion and home decor items. You will also find the edgy runway-inspired Alexander McQueen collections. If you are dying to treat your feet to red-soled opulence, be sure to visit the Christian Louboutin boutique. These are only a small sampling of this high-end shopper’s paradise that features everything from designer boutiques that offer the ultimate in haute couture to resale shops where you can find last season’s best on sale at hefty discounts .

There are many unique dining experiences, from fine dining to the casual bite-on-the-go, awaiting you in the UES. Sushi is going through a renaissance in the city, and the best omakase-style sushi can be found at Sasabune on E 73rd Street. Omakase sushi means that you leave the choice of ingredients, preparation method and presentation to the chef. Elegant French cuisine can be experienced at JoJo, E 64th Street, housed in gorgeous townhouse. Just for fun, visit the Lexington Candy Shop on Lexington Avenue, to get a taste of an old-fashioned soda fountain.
