Thanks to Pinterest, I stumbled upon this traditional pre-war Manhattan apartment, and it stopped me in my tracks. It is the epitome of old school preppy chic with its exquisite paneling, chintz, blue and white, English antiques, and handmade quilts. All the original 1920s architectural details have been meticulously and painstakingly restored. There is nothing trendy about this apartment… It is a perfect example of understated timeless elegance, and I could not love it more!
800 Park Avenue was built as a cooperative in 1924 and has one apartment per floor. This twelve room apartment is perfectly balanced with intricate wood paneling in the living room, dining room and library. Each of the rooms is spacious and each has unusually large well placed windows. The exposure is excellent with almost 100 feet of Park Avenue frontage. The entrance gallery has three antique leaded glass casement windows which enables the light to stream through the apartment for almost the entire day. There is an enfilade of rooms – library, living room and dining room, four master bedrooms, each with its own bath. In addition, there is a guest bedroom with bath, a maid’s room with bath, large kitchen with a picture window and a separate laundry room. A powder room is in the entrance gallery. This charming apartment is grand but intimate, cozy and refined. It has an establishment look with a fresh interpretation
This apartment sold in 2014.
