A perfectly proportioned two-bedroom co-op next to Central Park is now available. The home sits in the iconic Sherry Netherland, a 38-story cooperative residential hotel at 781 Fifth Avenue built in the 1920s. Now asking $1,795,000, the residence boasts East and West exposures, pouring light into the home through its incredible 12 windows.

An entryway leads to the kitchen and the living space, both nice and bright. While you won’t be doing much cooking in the tiny galley kitchen, which has no oven, there is a dishwasher to keep things tidy.

The spacious living and dining area has enough space for a flexible layout. A fireplace is framed by two east-facing windows.

Great for privacy, the bedrooms sit on opposite ends of the apartment, each with a walk-in closet and full bath. The primary suite has an incredible four windows, benefitting from east and west exposures.

One of the main draws of living in the building, in addition to its historic character, Neo-Gothic architecture style, and location on Grand Army Plaza, is the hotel services offered to residents. Services include a 24-hour doorman, concierge, elevator attendants, maid service daily, and monthly cleaning. Other amenities include access to the hotel’s fitness center, barbershop and hair salon, valet parking, and room service from Cipriani.

The stone and brick hotel building was built in 1926-1927 as a replacement to the Hotel Netherland, constructed in 1890. Designed by Schultze & Weaver with Buchman & Gross, the Sherry Netherland has one of the few remaining sidewalk clocks left in Manhattan, according to a Landmarks Preservation Commission report on the Upper East Side Historic District.
