Blending the privacy and spaciousness of a townhouse with the luxury living of a high-end condominium, this truly unique home is a completely gut-renovated, floor-through modern apartment set inside a grand historic property formerly owned by the Astor family. The prime Upper East Side location is on one of Manhattan?s most premier blocks: East 62nd Street between Fifth and Madison, literally steps from Central Park. This late-1800s townhouse is a true jewel of New York?s Gilded Age, owned for many years by the legendary Astor family. An exquisite and careful architectural renovation has preserved the building?s nineteenth century grandeur while blending in state-of-the-art modern details. The elevator opens directly into this convertible 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom floor-through, while high ceilings and a grand foyer lead into the huge living room, which features beautiful hardwood floors and a decorative fireplace. Marble floors line the hallway and the luxurious bathrooms, while the custom solid wood kitchen is equipped with Sub-Zero, Wolf and Miele appliances. Additional amenities include full-time concierge, multi-zoned Mitsubishi split-air system and washer/dryer in unit. Located half a block from Fifth Avenue and Central Park, and is conveniently located from legendary New York locations like Barney's, Bergdorf Goodman, the Plaza, and Madison Avenue boutiques. Many of Manhattan's finest restaurants are just around the corner, and Midtown's office buildings are moments away. Should you need to go further afield, the N/Q/R, 4/5/6 and F trains are all just a few blocks from the apartment, providing rapid transportation anywhere in New York City.
