There’s a beautiful four-bedroom duplex available at 953 Fifth Avenue on the Upper East Side, asking $12 million. The Robert Couturier-designed apartment seamlessly incorporates classic and contemporary styles while offering great views of the park. And it all starts with a private elevator entrance and a foyer with beautiful wood floor details.
Off the foyer there’s a windowed living room looking out over Central Park. The next room is a library with a gas fireplace made of 18th-century antique chestnut panels from Versailles that travel from the wall to the ceiling. The lower level also features a large bay-windowed dining room that can easily accommodate ten guests, as well as a high-end eat-in kitchen with a butler’s pantry.
On the second level, the master bedroom features a gas fireplace, walk-in closet, two en suite baths, and open views of the park. There are also three other bedrooms and a nursery on this floor.
Built in 1926, 953 Fifth Avenue is a 14-story building with only seven units. The exclusive residence offers a doorman, concierge, full-time elevator operator, and private storage bins.
