Park Avenue Court
Park Avenue Court has been donned one of the most prestigious white-glove condominiums on the Upper East Side. Formerly the Gimbel’s department store, its conversion by renowned Skidmore Owens and Merrill, upholds the building’s original grandeur. Residence R12A is a well appointed two-bedroom, two-bathroom home featuring 13-foot ceilings, 9-foot-high windows, and oak tree herringbone hand-laid parquetry throughout.
The spacious foyer features a custom handmade built-in library bookcase and work desk with two additional closets. Tucked between two sets of French doors is a tasteful custom-tiled galley kitchen equipped with matching stainless steel GE Café appliances and custom cabinetry with built-in LED lights.
Outside the kitchen is a spacious dining and living area, big enough to entertain a large group. The living and dining areas have 9-foot-high windows decorated with custom-designed powered curtains and custom crown moldings.
The large and airy primary bedroom can easily fit a king size bedroom set. This room has a walk-in closet with 13-foot ceilings that is equipped with custom floor-to-ceiling shelving. There is another closet with sliding doors, also custom-built. The built-in glass shelves with lighting are perfect to display your prized collectibles. The master bathroom features marble countertops and matching tiles, deep soaking jet tub, and a standing shower with appliances by Jado.
The spacious second bedroom features a built-in dresser and hutch closet system. The bedrooms are on the opposite sides of the apartment, ideal for privacy.
The second full bathroom is adjacent to the second bedroom and is outfitted with onyx countertops and matching tiles with a spacious linen closet. Adjacent to the bathroom is a laundry closet with a full-sized washer and vented dryer.
Apartment R12A is one of very few apartments that has its original floorplan and has been very well maintained. Park Avenue Court has not one, but two levels of security, with a doorman to greet you at the entrance and a concierge on the second level. A grand staircase in the lobby is impeccably designed. There are two terraces available to residents, a health club, a swimming pool and a playroom.
