    It looks like a very gracious home. 5 bedrooms is a little crunched though, especially when you realize there are only 3 public rooms downstairs (not including the kitchen). At least you get a Park Avenue address.

    Really beautiful and classy. Well done. Nicely proportioned and quality workmanship throughout. Has anyone crunched the square footage of this place? Of course, like all the other houses on this site, the price is way too high. And I would be worried right now about living on Park Ave.. When the guillotines come out these people are going to be the first to go. LOL.

      I did a VERY rough calculation based on the dimensions in the floor plans and came up with 3,515. I’m sure those dimensions don’t include closets or bathrooms, but it’s a ballpark number.

        Looks about right to me, so probably just under 4,000 including the things they don’t give dimensions for.

    I’m going to break the trend here and say that I don’t really want to live on Park Avenue. There are some amazing buildings with beautiful apartments, but it’s too busy and noisy, and the views are usually spotty at best. If I didn’t want a view, I’d prefer Gramercy Park or a 19th century townhouse in the village. Ideally an apartment would be on 5th Avenue or Central Park South with views across the park.

    That said, this is a beautiful apartment. It’s too formal for me, but the spaces and proportions are really nice. It’s also timeless and will look good years from now. As for the price, it’s right in line with other Park Avenue apartments, which don’t come on the market in these types of buildings very often.

    As Grrrowler said, the decorating is very formal, but this is just a good, classic design that’s clearly stood the test of time and will continue to do so. With some better decor, this will be a fine traditional city home. The floor plan is intuitive and functional, with a decent amount of usable space. I’d love to see more pics.

    The foyer and stairway in this home are just classic and RIGHT in a way that few new homes could possibly hope to be. All those attention-whore homes with double bridal staircases should take note.
