For old-world Manhattan living it would be hard to argue with the Parc Vendome, from its award-winning formal English tea gardens to graciously-configured apartments—like this 2,000 square-foot, two-bed-plus-office beauty—with wood-burning fireplaces, entry galleries and capacious closets. Built in 1931, the elegant two-building complex at 333 West 56th Street was converted to condominium apartments in 1983. In addition to space and charm and a fortunate location blocks from both Lincoln Center and Central Park, you’ll have an impossibly lovely south-facing private terrace and open city views, all for $10K a month (gas and electric are included).
It’s hard not to make a great entrance when you’ve got a foyer and a formal entry gallery that open into an 18-foot-by-25-foot living room. Add to that a wood-burning fireplace, dazzling views and tall steel-framed doors opening onto a private terrace for the full effect. There’s also a “concealed office” off the living room.
The small but elegant terrace provides more than enough space for wandering guests, evening conversations or serious gardening.
A tastefully renovated eat-in kitchen is well-configured and boasts a large windowed dining area.
Two large bedrooms with en-suite baths face those formal tea gardens. The master comes with a dressing area in addition to two massive walk-in closets.
Amenities at the Parc Vendome have kept up with the times and include full-time doormen, a sun deck, a gym and bike storage in addition to the aforementioned gardens.
