On the one hand, you could say this mansion-esque 3,100-square-foot Spanish Colonial Revival-style home embodies classic Upper East Side pre-war co-op charm–at a condo price. A Park Avenue address in Carnegie Hill usually means the former, as do the home’s 1928 bones, sprawling, palatial layout and stunning entry foyer. But this $9.6 million condo at 1235 Park Avenue is newly-renovated and though the price may be steeper, it comes with the flexibility a condominium generally affords.

The listing calls this four-bedroom home a “highly sophisticated and elegant masterpiece,” and visually it lives up to the compliment. A grand foyer offers a floor of imported Italian black and white diamond tiles as a stunning greeting to the suite of entertaining rooms beyond.

The aforementioned mahogany library boasts a large bar; the formal main dining room leads to a corner great room with a custom-designed ethanol fireplace.

On the other side of the foyer, the family-sized kitchen includes a breakfast bar, Bertazzoni stove and oven, Miele dishwasher, Wolf microwave, Sub Zero fridge and Miele washer and dryer. Just off the kitchen is a family room that can be used as a more intimate dining room.

Though sadly it’s not pictured, from the floor plan we can see that the home’s master suite is larger than most city apartments and includes a charming sitting area with another ethanol fireplace next to a Steinway grand piano. Three additional large bedrooms have walk-in closets and ensuite bathrooms, all adding up to a city apartment in which you could possibly misplace your children.
