Perfectly positioned in the East 70th to 73rd golden axis of Park Avenue's most prestigious pre-war cooperatives designed by celebrated architect Rosario Candela, 720 Park Avenue offers classic, large scale apartments with exceptional volume.
Located on the ninth and tenth floors, this desirable duplex apartment has undergone a three year comprehensive renovation to create a light-filled inviting home with high ceilings, plaster walls and moldings, mahogany doors, restored and replaced hardwood floors, central air conditioning, five wood burning fireplaces, new windows and fine millwork throughout.
A private elevator landing on the 9th floor leads to the large gallery with guest powder room and attractive curved staircase with custom designed Austrian bronze railing. The impressive plaster paneled south-facing living room measures 40' in length, with a wood burning fireplace at each end, and features four sets of handsome casement windows with open city views. There is also an adjacent spacious bar/study for entertaining and a media closet. The formal dining room has built-in bookshelves on either side of the wood burning fireplace, and a well-fitted china and crystal closet. It is served by a large pantry and kitchen with custom cabinetry and marble countertops. Adjacent to the kitchen is a substantial double aspect informal sitting room/dining room which benefits from the addition of three new window openings. A rear staircase leads the bedrooms above, and a staff room with bathroom, currently set up as a laundry room with half bath, completes this floor.
The upper level can be accessed by the front and rear staircases as well as the building elevator. The main upstairs landing has numerous coat closets and a second laundry room. There is a master bedroom suite comprising the south-west corner master bedroom with fireplace; a large, well-appointed master bathroom with soaking tub and separate stall shower, and an attractive adjacent north-west corner study with lacquer walls and ample storage. There are five additional bedrooms, three of which are over-sized, each with en-suite bathroom, and a flexible layout with options to incorporate another bedroom and bathroom into the master suite as well as to create a large library/media room with fireplace.
