Classic Seven with Views!
This “line” of apartments of seven beautifully proportioned rooms rarely becomes available at 40 Fifth Avenue. Beautifully maintained, it’s being offered for the first time in over four decades!
The grand home includes a 22 foot formal entrance gallery, a living room with a wood burning fireplace, a family sized dining room, a kitchen with an adjacent laundry/storage room, a loggia, library/bedroom, two bedrooms, and two and a half bathrooms.
A corner apartment with southern, western and eastern exposures, it boasts beautiful herring bone floors, high ceilings, two zone air conditioning, original French doors, classic prewar detailing throughout, and a basement storage room. This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a gracious seven room home in one of the most desirable buildings on the Gold Coast. Experience the ultimate in urban living with doormen, elevator attendants and private gardens.
40 Fifth Avenue, on the south-west corner of Fifth Avenue and 11th Street, is a 15 story Neo-Georgian apartment house completed in 1929. It has been described by Paul Goldberger, an architecture critic for the New York Times, as “… a Park Avenue Building that must have come loose in a storm and dropped anchor down here.”
