Rarely does the coveted A line – a corner, seven room with direct Central Park views – become available. This bright, high floor residence, situated in one of Carnegie Hill’s finest Fifth Avenue co-ops, is approximately 1,900 square feet and features an optimal classic layout and beautiful prewar details. With all rooms facing west to Fifth Avenue or south to East 95th Street, it boasts splendid light and views from all rooms. Enter via a semi-private landing into a gracious entrance gallery. Immediately you are greeted by light and high beamed ceilings. Straight ahead is the spacious and elegant living room, accented by a wood burning fireplace and large picture window overlooking Central Park. Also flowing seamlessly off the entrance gallery is a large formal dining room that is gracious enough to serve as a combination den/dining space. Adjacent to the dining room is an updated and well-proportioned windowed eat-in kitchen with a Wolf range and stainless steel appliances, continuing into a spacious back foyer with two staff rooms/offices and a bathroom. Separate sleeping quarters off a hallway include a primary bedroom with corner exposure over Central Park as well as a second bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and partial park views. The home is accentuated by through-wall air conditioning, a washer/dryer, ample closet space and additional private storage in the basement. 1140 Fifth Avenue is ideally situated in Carnegie Hill, in one of the most peaceful and beautiful stretches that the city offers, on 95th and Fifth Ave, in close proximity to many of Manhattan's best schools as well as restaurants and shops. Built in 1922 by renowned architect Fred Fillmore French, 1140 Fifth Ave is a distinguished full-service co-op that allows pets and permits 60% financing. There is a 2% flip tax, payable by the purchaser.
