Whoever coined the term “the lap of luxury” was clearly thinking of The Mayfair’s apartment #2BC at 610 Park Avenue. This opulent residence, with a $20 million price tag, is so lavish you feel elegant just looking at it. The gorgeous marble entrance gallery is a perfect first impression, setting the tone for the rest of the apartment.
The Mayfair was originally the Mayfair Regent Hotel, built back in 1925 by Rosario Candela’s famous partner J.E.R. Carpenter. The building was converted to 15 floors of beautiful condos in 1997.
This 3BR/3.5BA home is ideal for entertaining with a built-in sound system throughout.

This wing includes a large second bedroom and bathroom, but the piece de la resistance is a gorgeous master bedroom with a dressing room, its own terrace, entrance to a second terrace, and two en suite bathrooms. One of the bathrooms has a Jacuzzi tub and the other has a steam shower. Life’s full of tough choices.
The breakfast room overlooks the home’s second terrace, a beautiful spot with outdoor speakers and a watering system – because in a place like this, even the plants are living large.
And speaking of dilemmas, whoever buys this stunning condo, listed by Rana Williams of Keller Williams, is going to be faced with the daily decision of whether to eat with a view of the terrace or go to one of the areas many restaurants. One of those restaurants is the Michelin-rated Daniel, one of renown chef Daniel Boulud’s delectable dining spots. Eenie, meenie, miney mo…
