Park Avenue is synonymous with luxury living and this 3BR/4.5BA apartment at the corner of 71st Street does not disappoint. The sprawling residence at 737 Park Avenue features over 4,300-square-feet of perfection starting the moment you step off the elevator onto your own private landing. We won’t blame you for doing a little fist-pump after taking possession of the keys. Expertly staged by Arthur Dunnam of renowned interior design firm Jed Johnson Associates (whose work has been featured in Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, and Interior Design), the home is beautifully divided into public and private spaces.
The main living/entertaining area features a 700-square-foot living room, a large, bright dining room, and a gorgeously appointed eat-in kitchen with marble floors and countertops, custom Varenna cabinetry, Miele appliances, and Franke sinks. We could stop right here and be happy, but we’re talking Park Avenue here, so of course this residence has more to keep its lucky owner smiling. So go ahead and take your pick of spending a quiet Saturday afternoon in either your media room or library, both of which have access to nearly 100 feet of outdoor terrace space overlooking one of the grandest streets in Manhattan.
The private bedroom wing is just as stunning. All of the bedrooms face South and have their own bathrooms. The impeccable master suite features huge his-and-her separate walk-in closets (more fist pumping) and a large master bathroom with three windows on Park Avenue, custom vanities, Dornbracht fixtures, a soaking tub, glass-enclosed showers, and heated floors.
Planting terraces surround the apartment to the South and West, providing a lovely accent to the master bedroom and living room views, while subtle architectural details such as new rift and quartered solid oak flooring and casement windows beautifully accentuate the home’s delicate charm.
As you would expect, a building like this also has top-of-the-line amenities to go along with its top-of the line residences: a 24-hour doorman, porters and elevator attendants are available to assist with your every need, and you have access to both a fitness room and children’s playroom. And even though this apartment is large enough for large-scale entertaining, you can opt to utilize the building’s multipurpose room with adjacent outdoor garden for your larger celebrations.
