1148 Fifth Avenue, 2A - Carnegie Hill, New York
Designed in 1923 by J.E.R Carpenter, 1148 Fifth is an excellent full service co-operative with doorman and concierge. The semi-private elevator landing leads into an enormous 39 foot long gallery. A very special feature of the A line is that 4 main rooms face Central Park; which totals 50 running feet. The grand LR features park facing views, wood burning fireplace and herringbone floors. The adjacent formal DR is perfect for entertaining. The large eat-in kitchen & two staff rooms offer many options to create for gracious living. The three spacious bedrooms feature direct park views. Ten foot ceilings give the space great volume and the distinguished pre-war architectural details remain. This special 8 room apartment is ready for a renovation, restoring its beauty. The building also features a fitness room and large storage facilities. It is steps from Museum Mile, Madison Avenue restaurants, shops and all that Carnegie Hill has to offer.
