What’s old is new again at this totally renovated corner apartment in the center of Harlem. On the 27th floor of the high-rise condominium at 1485 Fifth Avenue, this three-bedroom home is currently a showcase of antiques and artwork. Custom built-in lighted shelving throughout the apartment displays collected treasures in the most elegant way possible. Asking $3,995,000, this Uptown aerie offers breathtaking Manhattan views through walls of windows and a layout that maximizes privacy.

With 2,500 square feet of living space within, the apartment also has a huge terrace and a deeded parking space. A complete no-expense-spared renovation means interiors have been created according to the exacting specifications of the owner, a top international branding guru. South, west, and east exposures mean stunning sunrises over the East River and sunsets over Central Park and the city skyline.

Framed by high ceilings, herringbone wood floors, and architectural flourishes, the apartment features bespoke painted wood millwork and dramatic cove lighting throughout. Through a gracious foyer is a large dining room.

This formal dining space opens into the home’s living room where you’ll find walls of glass and the Manhattan skyline beyond. The living room accesses an enviable outdoor terrace, big enough for both gardening and entertaining.

A gourmet cook’s dream kitchen starts with painted wood custom cabinetry, Carrara marble worktops, and ample storage. Appliances include a classic La Cornue range, double wall ovens, a paneled oversized refrigerator, a Miele cappuccino maker, a wine fridge, and a dishwasher.

In one wing you’ll find an elegant master suite with every possible custom comfort. Anchored by a central fireplace, the bedroom features custom millwork and cove lighting. The ensuite bath is clad in Carrera marble and features a steam shower and bidet. The suite also has a dressing area with custom closets. The master bedroom also accesses the terrace, perfect for morning coffee or a nightcap overlooking the lively Harlem neighborhood.

In the opposite bedroom wing are two spacious bedrooms–one with built-in desks currently used as a home office. Also on this side of the home are a marble bath and a laundry room.

This luxury high-rise condominium building is located across from Mount Morris Park, also known as Marcus Garvey Park. An impressive list of amenities includes a concierge, elevator-accessed valet parking, a state-of-the-art gym, a kids’ playroom, a 55-foot indoor heated lap pool, an outdoor terrace with a grill, and a resident lounge with a catering kitchen.
