A rarely-available Fifth Avenue co-op with 50 feet of Central Park frontage–and Bette Midler for an upstairs neighbor–has hit the market for $20 million, according to Curbed. This classic 11-room, five-bedroom Upper East Side home at 1125 Fifth Avenue gets those cinematic park and skyline views; the Divine Miss M has the penthouse–featured in Architectural Digest in 2014–upstairs.

This elegant full-floor sky-mansion perched on the 14th floor of a venerable Fifth Avenue co-op has the Central Park frontage, panoramic views and beautiful light in every direction that makes this kind of Manhattan home the goal of so many success stories.

Entry begins with a private elevator vestibule; expansive living and entertaining rooms lie just beyond. Anchored by a wood-burning fireplace, the corner living room offers vistas of Central Park to the west and the George Washington Bridge to the north. A grand formal dining room is just beyond.

The wood-paneled library is sophisticated and modern; best of all, perhaps, it offers a wet bar. A spacious and cheerful eat-in kitchen is perfect for informal dining.

Four north-facing bedrooms each have en-suite windowed bathrooms. The generously-proportioned master suite boasts a fireplace, walk-in closets, a dressing room and a large bathroom. There’s a large laundry room as well.
