You’ve got options when it comes to this prewar duplex at 1281 Madison Avenue, a Carnegie Hill cooperative that’s a block away from Central Park. After being on the market for $3.125 million (price chopped down from $3.495 million) it is now also on the rental market, asking $10,000 a month. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom pad has some lovely prewar details still intact, like the large wood-framed windows, equipped with window seats, parquet floors, fireplaces and 11-foot ceilings.
The apartment entrance leads right into the entertainment area, a large living room with three large windows. Storage space and a bathroom–as well as a long hallway lined with parquet flooring–separates the living room from the dining room on the main floor.
The dining area is flanked by a historic fireplace and mantlepiece on one side and an uber modern, open kitchen on the other.
A wide staircase from the living room leads you up to the second level of the duplex, which holds the two bedrooms. Both bedrooms are completely private from one another, with their own ensuite bathrooms and built-in closets. They each boast historic fireplaces, as well.
This listing is a co-exclusive, with Douglas Elliman handling the rental side and Halstead handling the sales. Rent or buy, it’s a lovely apartment in a great corner of the Upper East Side, just a block from Central Park and around the corner from the museums along Fifth Avenue.
