Occupying the entire third floor of 760 Park Avenue, this spectacular thirteen into eleven room prewar home is located in one of Manhattan's most prestigious white-glove co-operatives. The palatial residence has nearly 90-feet of frontage on Park Avenue, two wood burning fireplaces, soaring ceilings, oversized windows, and perfectly preserved prewar architectural details.

A private elevator landing opens onto a regal 26'8' long gallery providing an impressive introduction to the home. There is a beautiful enfilade of entertainment rooms all overlooking the treetops on Park Avenue. The grand living room is in the center and is 30' by 18'6 " and features the first wood burning fireplace. Adjacent to the north is the formal dining room and to the south is the library with a bar. There is a windowed kitchen as well as a windowed serving kitchen; the two can be combined to create an enormous eat-in kitchen with incredible storage. Adjacent to the kitchen, there is a double staff bedroom, a full bathroom, a windowed laundry room and mechanical room. A powder room and a walk-in coat room complete the public spaces.

As for the private quarters, there is a separate bedroom hallway. In the corner is an extraordinary primary suite that is a combination of two bedrooms. It faces south and east and has the second working fireplace, an en-suite windowed bathroom room and a dressing room.

760 Park Avenue is a neo-Renaissance prewar co-operative which houses just thirteen residences. Designed by W. L. Rouse and L.A. Goldstone, the building was constructed in 1924 by Starrett Brothers & Eken, who were renowned builders responsible for the construction of many important landmarks, including the Empire State Building. This boutique building offers residents the highest level of service and privacy. There is a full-time doorman, live-in resident manager and gym. A storage bin transfers with the sale. The building allows no financing and there is a 3% flip tax.

Upper East Side | Manhattan

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.
