In a city with multiple epicenters of activity and action, find yourself pleasantly anchored in a prime location with easy access to work and play. Central Park Place is conveniently located on W 57th and 8th ave; Columbus Circle, Central Park, Lincoln Center, Time Warner Center, Whole Foods, numerous top-rated restaurants, and world-class shopping are right outside your doorstep and the subway station is right below the building!
Built in 1987 by the Zeckendorf family, Central Park Place is typified by a solid quality, attention to detail, and thoughtfulness that extends to the building amenities. The building features a 24 hour doorman and is staffed by a long tenured and caring team of service professionals. Pay special attention to the ultra low monthlies, under $1600, which is less than half of what you will see from similar condo units in the corridor. This doesn't mean you get shortchanged on amenities; the building features a health club, swimming pool, roof deck, lounge, and below market-rate guest rooms for rent if you have visitors in from out of town.
This oversized duplex unit boasts tons of closet space and has undergone a recent renovation before coming to market. On the first level, 2 large closets flank the entry foyer and there is additional storage under the staircase (perfect for anything from linens to luggage). Upstairs you will find a walk-in closet in the bedroom with a smaller closet that would be a perfect home for your shoe obsession. The generous floorplan provides ample space for dressers, credenza, and armoires.
New hardwood floors have been laid and special attention has been paid to lighting throughout with fixtures facilitating multiple moods to match your potentially desired ambiance. Pls feel free to zoom in on the floorplan to get an idea of all that has been done to bring this property to market. Bathrooms have been updated with classic subway tile and the result is simple, elegant, and timeless.
Kitchen features white shaker style cabinets that compliment brand new white marble countertops with stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher. The pass through kitchen window was extended to maximize openness and facilitate a better connection with the dining area. Feature wise, this is truly a turnkey property.
Let's talk about the vibe. Like a brownstone parlor floor, the lower level sets the stage for intimate dinners, spirited conversation, cozy couch time and daytime focus with 3 separate zones that lend themselves to each function. You have plenty of wall space for artwork, room for a 6 person dining table, large couch, conversational seating, a bar and a desk. The living room faces East and enjoys a calm light throughout the day.
Head up the staircase to the second level to find a king sized bedroom, complete with half bath, that feels more like a suburban primary suite than a Midtown condo. The deep window sill lends itself as a cozy perch, clamoring for a cushion, where you can watch the city flow by. Or you can simply utilize the serene suite to de-stress, and focus on catching up on sleep or your favorite shows. While the building does have shared laundry facilities, you will enjoy the use of the full sized private washer/dryer located on this floor.
Love your location. Enjoy the world class amenities, convenience, and overall ease of flow. Marvel at the towering architecture but scoff at their monthlies. Enjoy the Icarean climb of the supertalls while relishing your second floor duplex that feels more like a house than a hotel in the sky.
I look forward to introducing you to your newly renovated home.
