Today’s home is worth a look for the art alone. The seller is a contemporary collector of pop-surrealist art and was the doorman at 1040 5th Ave; the building which Jackie Kennedy Onassis called home and home to many recognizable names. He is selling because, after a long career, he is moving to Cuba.
Located in a gorgeous 1920 entirely restored Beaux-Arts building, this fabulous triple mint and sun-drenched corner two-bedroom home reflects elegance.
The high ceilings and over-sized windows are extremely inviting and the exposures offer wonderful views of landmark significant buildings and churches.
The chef”s kitchen is wide and opens onto the living room, encouraging entertainment.
This sun-filled home has a serene corner master bedroom with en suite bathroom, a second bedroom and many closets.
2056 Fifth Avenue is an architectural masterpiece that features a virtual doorman, a fitness center, bike storage, and a common courtyard. The tax abatement is until 2025. The location is at the heart of the best that Harlem offers: close to all major transportation (2-3 and Metro North), many restaurants, theaters, art galleries, and Whole Foods.
This unit is listed for $1.275 million with Fabienne Lecole of Compass.
