Wrap yourself in breathtaking Central Park views in this exceptional two-bedroom, two-bathroom showplace in one of the best cooperatives on Central Park West.
Perfectly positioned on the southeastern corner of a revered Emery Roth building, this spacious apartment is filled with iconic park views and glorious natural light. Prewar details, including soaring beamed ceilings and classic millwork, add an elegant ambiance, while an updated open layout and contemporary conveniences suit modern lifestyles.
From the gracious foyer, the spacious living room and dining area invite you to relax and entertain alongside dazzling designer lighting and wide-open views that stretch across Central Park treetops all the way to Fifth Avenue. The open chef's kitchen is a work of art where marble counters, custom cabinetry and black hardware surround upscale appliances, including a Viking range and built-in microwave and a cabinet-front dishwasher and bottom-freezer refrigerator.
The split-bedroom layout places the owner's suite along the eastern exposure, where you'll enjoy sunrise park views, designer wall coverings and a custom walk-in closet. The en suite marble bathroom boasts a frameless glass shower, double vanity and Toto commode. Just outside the owner's suite, a laundry closet with a stacked Bosch washer-dryer makes laundry day a breeze. The secondary bedroom features built-in cabinetry and a desk, and the adjacent guest bath is finished with a large tub/shower, a pedestal sink and gleaming floor-to-ceiling stone tile.
Designed by the esteemed Emery Roth in 1925, The Alden is a stunning Neo-Renaissance masterpiece in brick, limestone and terra cotta. The building was converted to cooperative use in 1984, and today's residents enjoy attentive white-glove service with 24-hour doormen, concierge and live-in superintendent, plus strong financials and no flip tax. The spectacular lobby is joined by updated hallways, a laundry room, lending library, bike room, an on-site parking garage accessible from within the building, and a magnificent landscaped rooftop with panoramic views.
