For the first time in nearly 40 years, this incredibly rare corner residence with four bedrooms and three bathrooms is being offered for sale. An inspired combination of two apartments that was once featured in Apartamento Magazine, the wonderfully bright and airy residence is on the 8th Floor of the iconic One Fifth Avenue co-operative.
Upon entering the gracious entrance gallery, one is met with the large primary en-suite bedroom wing to the right and the entertaining and secondary private quarters to the left, where a 29' x 15' corner grand room with an open kitchen and dining space welcomes you into the heart of the home with its oversized casement windows and light.
Off the living space, and down a perfectly scaled corridor are three secondary bedrooms, two full bathrooms and multiple closets. The third and largest bedroom of this wing has functioned as a workroom and studio space for one of the owners, containing a vast reference library of art, graphic design, illustration and media of the last half-century. The room also boasts two massive, walk-in storage spaces where a fourth bathroom could easily be added. Original parquet floors, pre-war ceiling beams and character accent this perfectly unique home in the center of Greenwich Village.
Originally built in 1927 by the architect Harvey Wiley Corbett, One Fifth Avenue is an Art Deco co-operative just off Washington Square Park. This prestigious full-service white glove building with its recently restored double-height lobby and newly renovated hallways has a 24-hr doorman/concierge, live-in superintendent, full-time porters, private social room, library and central laundry room. The building allows pets, pied- -terres and up to 65% financing.
Squarely located in the prime 'Gold Coast' of Downtown Manhattan, One Fifth Avenue residents enjoy access to the best shopping, dining (in a variety of world-class restaurants), gourmet food markets, and close proximity to all the major subway/transportation lines.
There is a small, ongoing assessment of $314.33 per month for this apartment.
