Stunning Classic 8 Apartment with 40 Feet of Central Park Exposure


For the first time in 60 years, this corner, Central Park-facing, grand Classic 8 home is being offered in the exquisite Kenilworth Building.

As you enter into the double foyer of Apartment 2C, you will be graced by over 50 ft Central Park frontage. Large rooms, oversized windows, 10ft high beamed ceilings, original moulding and detail, stunning original oak floors with mahogany inlay trim, abundant light facing East, South and West are only a few of the outstanding attributes that make up this wonderful apartment.

Being a classic home, all of the main rooms and hallways emanate from the foyer. The two main entertaining rooms overlook Central Park. First is the large den with fireplace, that can be used as a formal dining room, a library or converted to a 4th bedroom. Open to the right is an extraordinarily gracious corner double living room/dining room, also with a fireplace, that boasts oversized windows overlooking the trees and Reservoir.

To the right of the foyer there is a hall of storage leading to the expansive and separate windowed kitchen with a large eating area, washer/dryer area, a maid’s room, and full bath. Originally the layout offered 2 maids rooms, one of which was incorporated into the kitchen and is being used as an eating area. The kitchen also offers a separate entrance, opening directly into the service elevator.

The private bedroom wing is at the end of the foyer. It’s own corridor leads to 3 spacious south facing bedrooms. There is a very large bathroom off the hall, and ample closet space. At the end of the hall, the master bedroom feels like a hotel suite, with its 2 oversized windows facing South and West, 2 walk-in closets, and separate windowed master bathroom.

The Kenilworth is known as a white-gloved, full service, intimate building located on the corner of Central Park West and 75th Street. Designed by Townsend, Steinle and Haskell, the building was built in 1908 and is situated in the middle of the historic Gold Coast on Central Park West, (which includes the Dakota, the San Remo, the Beresford and the Museum of Natural History), and exudes all of the early twentieth century charm one could ask for including, the extraordinary French second-empire beaux-arts lobby.

Located just off Central Park, the building also has the Natural History Museum, Columbus Circle, and plenty of shopping and restaurants nearby. If you want to travel outside of the neighborhood the 1,2,3,A,B or C subway lines are all within close proximity.
