1158 5TH Avenue Unit: PHA


Enjoy breathtaking direct Central Park and city skyline views from almost every room of this rare and extraordinary Fifth Avenue penthouse triplex offering. Regally proportioned and beautifully appointed, this elegant home commands an unparalleled position overlooking the full expanse of Central Park and its Jackie Onassis Reservoir, as well as a spectacular entertaining terrace for lavish indoor and outdoor living.

Enter through a grand gallery adorned by an architectural wrought iron central staircase and be drawn into the heart of this exceptional home. On its first floor, a massive corner living room sits perfectly alongside a large formal dining room. Huge picture windows along Fifth Avenue run the entirety of the Western wall and wrap to the South, bathing the room in natural sunlight and drawing in stunning views over Central Park, with its glorious Reservoir at your feet and the skyline of the West Side beyond.

To the East of the living room, a sprawling formal dining room easily accommodates dinner for 20 and lies directly adjacent to the sun-filled, double-windowed eat-in kitchen. Kitchen finishes include black granite/marble countertops, a subway tile backsplash and custom cabinetry, as well as all stainless steel appliances including a new Subzero refrigerator, a double Thermador oven and a 6-burner Viking range outfitted with warming and storage drawers. Perfecting the first level of this home is a large and elegant wood-paneled library with direct Central Park views and an en-suite full bathroom overlooking the park as well, easily used as an additional bedroom or guest quarters, and a discreet powder room for guests as well.

Upstairs, the expansive master suite is bathed in sunlight through West- and South-facing picture windows overlooking the enormous private terrace, Central Park and beyond. Two customized dressing rooms service this room, the first leading to a sumptuous primary bathroom with a double steam shower, stone flooring and Venetian plaster with foiled-glass detailing. The second dressing room has been impeccably outfitted and leads to its own additional half bath. Beyond the primary suite is a glass-enclosed second bedroom enveloped by this floor's primary private terrace to its West and a second private planting terrace to its East. The primary terrace is fully landscaped and pours over Central Park, with grand space for extensive outdoor living and dining. The East-facing terrace retains beautiful original ironwork, a decorative fountain and an array of verdant planters and trees reminiscent of an English garden.

On the third level is the solarium, resting like a jewel box atop this magnificent penthouse, with 16-foot ceilings in a glass-enclosed arched atrium of floor-to-ceiling windows perched dramatically high above Central Park. Currently used as a show-stopping study, it could serve as a glorious bedroom as well. There is an additional corner room on this level with the same dramatic views West as well as bridge views to the North, currently serving as a home office, as well as a powder room.

Exquisite and stately, Penthouse A at 1158 Fifth Avenue offers spectacular indoor and outdoor space, glorious views and the perfect balance of prewar grandeur with modern conveniences. Additional features include a huge laundry room exclusive to and just outside the apartment, a Lutron lighting and shade system, multiple-zone central air, electric solar, blackout and decorative shades and a hardwired security system. For those wishing to enjoy the terrace alongside their entertaining space instead, the first and second floors can potentially be flipped to accommodate up to four bedrooms on the first floor with a massive living, dining and kitchen floor occupying the second. Also included in this offering is a separate 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom guest residence on the building's first floor, fully renovated and easily used as a staff apartment or home office as well.

1158 Fifth Avenue is a landmarked prewar building completed in 1924 and incorporated in 1945. Designed by C. Howard Krane and Kenneth Franzheim in the French Renaissance-style, the building sits atop a 3-story limestone base and is clad in tan brick with wrought iron and limestone detailing. Its beautiful lobby features vaulted ceilings and ornate original details. Residents are serviced by a full-time staff of doormen and concierges as well as a live-in resident manager, and amenities include a fitness center, private storage, bicycle storage and central laundry. Located in prime Carnegie Hill and along Central Park, it is surrounded by the finest of the city's museums, a rich host of luxury and boutique shopping and dining and Manhattan's most preeminent schools. Financing is allowed up to 40% and pets are permitted.
