Breathtaking grand proportions and volume are the hallmark of architect J. E. R. Carpenter’s masterpiece 1060 Fifth Avenue – which is argued as Museum Mile’s most coveted address. As you step through Residence 4C’s Entry Hall, the gracious Foyer announces this 6 room home’s 11 foot ceilings and welcomes you with cascading light spilling in from the adjacent wide and deep grand Living Room with enormous South and East facing windows. The 30 foot depth of this light flooded warm Living Room is centered by a wood burning fireplace. A Formal Dining Room with two sets of French doors is a spectacular setting for hosting dinner parties, holidays, or proper family meals. Down a long Hall that offers tremendous privacy are the South facing Master Suite and Second Bedroom Suite each with en suite baths and large Walk-in Closets and each offering fantastic space for in-suite sitting areas. A large Eat-In Kitchen with large North facing windows, Maid’s or Guest Room with en-suite full bath, a large office or wine room/pantry round out this well drawn home. In addition to the many closets throughout the residence, the purchase includes an additional large walk-in storage room in the basement as well as a separate private wine cellar.
1060 Fifth Avenue’s handsome and quiet limestone entrance and elegant Victoria Hagen redesigned lobby on 87th Street greet you and set a consistent tone for the interior of this special home. It is a true white-glove full service building with amenities and service level rarely seen in Manhattan. There is a state of the art gym, swim current pool, golf simulator, half-basketball court, dedicated pilates area, and bike storage. Note that there is a 3% flip tax paid by the purchaser.
