1165 Fifth Avenue, 11A - Upper East Side, New York
Striking panoramic Central Park views abound from all the reception rooms and bedrooms of this high floor, spacious, pre-war, co-op apartment located on Fifth Avenue and 98th Street. Originally designed as a classic-8, the current floorplan is flexible and easily can be converted into a four-bedroom unit. One enters the property from a semi-private elevator landing, shared with only one other tenant, into a small vestibule issuing onto an impressive, centrally located, 22-foot long gallery with beautiful herringbone floors that extend throughout the elegant reception rooms. The gallery is the core of the apartment and all the major rooms gain access through it. To the right, is the currently combined study/living room with wood burning fireplace and three large windows facing the park. At the other end of the gallery, is the large, inviting, south-facing formal dining room with both park and midtown skyline views. Between the dining room and study/living room is an entrance into a private corridor leading to two comfortable bedrooms overlooking the park. Each has an en suite bathroom. One of these bedrooms is the glorious corner master with two exposures, the southern one facing straight down Fifth Avenue with unobstructed views to Central Park South. Also off the gallery is the entrance, through a butler's pantry, to the fully equipped Smallbone kitchen leading into the third large bedroom with en suite bath. This nice sized room, created by the combination of two adjacent staff rooms, has park views as well as a glimpse, through a small east-facing window, of the onion domes of the St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Cathedral on 97th Street.
