The Stanhope at 995 Fifth Avenue was designed by the renowned architect Rosario Candela in 1926 and then renovated by Extell Development in 2008. The building is positioned directly across from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park.
The four-bedroom residence was designed to combine historic charm with stylish modern updates. The semi-private elevator opens to an elegant foyer, shared by one other apartment- providing additional privacy and solitude. The expansive layout features a double living room with architectural detail like coffered ceilings and oversized windows that frame sun- filled North and West corner views of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Flawless Mahogany wood floors pave the hallways and the reception rooms.
The meticulously designed chef’s kitchen features stunning craftsmanship and premium finishes with Small Bones custom cabinetry, stainless steel countertops and the enviable Viking appliances that include three ovens, two dishwashers, six-burner range with grill, and temperature controlled custom designed wine refrigerator. The state of the art designer lighting adds stylish illumination while an oversized island and built-in banquette provide plenty of space for dining. Four bedrooms that each feature luxurious en-suite baths are placed down a quiet hallway.
In the master suite, there is an expansive walk-in closet and a serene spa-like marble master bath.
This home defines sophistication with many modern conveniences including state of the art Savant home automation system, year-round controlled heating and cooling, a guest powder room, laundry with in-unit washer-dryer, and rows of additional closets.
Building amenities include a resident manager, full-time doorman, concierge, and a 24/7 porter, as well as storage for bikes and strollers. The residents also enjoy the La Palestra health center and spa. This unit is listed for $13.95 million with Howard Margolis of Douglas Elliman.
