Located on the most coveted stretch of the Upper East Side, just across from the Central Park Zoo, this sprawling 10-room pad at 838 Fifth Avenue offers the kind of Manhattan luxury that $27 million can buy. The mansion-sized condominium spans 5,427 square feet including a 45-foot corner expanse, with Central Park and skyline views in every direction. The home’s opulent interiors are more Versailles than Vogue, heavy on the upholstery and French Provincial style beneath coffered ceilings and ornate moldings. But we’re guessing the next buyer of this eight-figure refuge will be able to afford the renovation of their dreams–and Manhattan skyline views never go out of style.

Enter the apartment via a private elevator landing into a travertine-tiled gallery. This opulent entry welcomes guests with a large coat closet and powder room.

From the gallery, enter the Fifth Avenue-fronted living room for your first introduction to the home’s stunning park views.  The room is framed by parquet de Versailles-patterned hardwood flooring, a fireplace, and beamed ceilings. Next is a formal dining room with a wood-burning fireplace, coffered ceilings, and built-in cabinets.

A spacious eat-in kitchen is the home’s French provincial showcase, modernized by high-end appliances and a massive island. A wood-paneled library exudes Gilded Age comfort, complete with a built-in wet bar. Adjacent to the kitchen is a staff room/office with a laundry room and bath.

Down the gallery in the home’s private sleeping quarters, park views are still present and accounted for. A luxurious primary suite boasts a light-filled office/sitting room in addition to a large bedroom with a fireplace, Juliet balconies, two full-size dressing rooms, and his-and-hers marble bathrooms. Two more bedrooms with ensuite baths complete the sleeping quarters.

The apartment comes with a private staff studio with a kitchenette and full bath, lobby-accessible storage bins, and two wine cellars. The boutique limestone condominium building contains only nine residences and offers a full-time doorman, a live-in super, a renovated gym, and central laundry.
