1080 Fifth Avenue, Apt 20B
Rarely does a gem come along like this high floor residence with immersive, sweeping views of Central Park and a sensation of floating over the reservoir. A true haven, it boasts amazing open views and sunny exposures through oversized windows in every room - views that extend south to the Empire State Building and north to the George Washington Bridge and offer breathtaking sunsets over Central Park and the reservoir. Perched atop a distinguished, full-service co-op in prime Carnegie Hill on 89th Street and Fifth Avenue, this home offers a perfect oasis in the sky.
Immediately upon entering, you are greeted by a feeling of tranquility. An open living/dining space feels as though it is part of a large bay window hovering over one of the most beautiful parts of Central Park. Adjacent to the dining area and also accessible off the entrance hall is an updated and well-proportioned windowed kitchen with a Gaggenau stovetop, two Viking ovens, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and Miele dishwasher. The split layout offers perfect separation of the two bedrooms, each with splendid park views and its own en suite bathroom. The home is accentuated by through-wall air conditioning and heating controlled separately in each room, a washer/dryer, ample built-in storage throughout and additional private storage in the basement.
