550 Park Avenue was designed in 1917 by the city’s foremost architect of luxury residential buildings, J.E.R. Carpenter, and has long been prized for its sophisticated elegance and grandeur. One of the few smaller apartments in the building, this 5-room residence is ideally situated on the 16th floor, with sunny open views, including an oblique view of Central Park from the master bedroom. With charmingly scaled rooms, soaring ceilings, and well designed division of public from private space, the apartment is in excellent condition, having just undergone a complete renovation. As an ideal home in the city, or as a pied a terre, this is a rare opportunity to live in one of New York’s most distinguished residential cooperatives. Owner/Broker.
