Reported to have been the one-time home of television personality Barbara Walters, this four-bedroom residence is the picture of pre-war elegance, with soaring coffered ceilings, custom millwork, and dark parquet floors throughout. Located in one of the most prestigious corners of the Upper East Side at 555 Park Avenue, the property is listed at $10,350,000 but is also available for rent at $37,500 a month.

You’ll enter into a welcoming foyer that leads you into the entertainment wing of the home. There’s a wood-paneled library with custom built-ins and cabinetry, a living room with coffered ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace, and a formal dining room. Large windows throughout the public spaces face north and overlook 62nd Street.

A spacious eat-in kitchen is organized around a large central island and is more than fully-equipped with two Subzero refrigerators, two dishwashers, and a wine cooler with space for a whopping 750 bottles. There’s a breakfast nook off the kitchen as well as a walk-in, windowed Butler’s pantry, a laundry room, and two staff rooms.

555 Park is a coveted address with proximity to Central Park—a white glove co-op designed by George and Edward Blum and built in 1912. The building offers a gym, bike room, and additional storage.
