When it comes to Upper East Side pads along Park Avenue, it’s almost a guarantee that the price tag is going to be ridiculously expensive, and this palatial 4,200-square-foot apartment is one of those that fit the script, asking $10.8 million.
A private elevator leads into the four-bedroom, five bathroom home that is overwhelmingly filled with early 20th century charm. Built by architects Schwartz and Gross in 1927, the space embraces 10-foot beamed ceilings, elaborate wood-burning fireplaces, herringbone wood floors, and oversized windows that look out onto Park Avenue. The size of the kitchen and breakfast room alone can put some studio apartments to shame and if that’s not enough, there is also a formal dining room adjacent the expansive living room.
The master bedroom has two walk-in closets, because why not, and what is currently a library can be reconfigured into a fifth bedroom (there’s already a powder room with full bathroom potential in place). Just about the only thing missing here is private outdoor space, but with Central Park just two blocks away, who needs it.
