A relative newcomer to the co-operative game, the building at 1175 Park Avenue was only converted as recently as 1983. However, the building itself has been around since 1929 and represents a stunning example of the architecture of the roaring twenties.
A striking building, 1175 Park Ave features ornate limestone pilasters on the second and third stories as well as a single story limestone base, giving the facade an individual style. That style was the brainchild of Emery Roth, an eminent architect born in what is now Slovakia. 1175 Park Avenue – as well as a number of other apartment buildings in Carnegie Hill – exhibits the sort of beaux-art design flourishes that quickly became his signature.
A property in this area of Carnegie Hill provides unparalleled access to the numerous galleries, museums, boutiques, department stores and restaurants that are found nearby. Location-wise, few could ask for more than what is offered by 1175 Park.
Even Central Park is located within easy reach, enabling residents to exercise pets – which are allowed at 1175 Park Avenue – or simply gain some exercise themselves. There is also a fitness room onsite, making the property perfect for residents who are serious about maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
When entering into the apartments in 1175 Park Ave it would be difficult to tell that the building was converted in the 80s. These spacious units carry many similar pre-war Park Avenue characteristics. The apartments are generally spacious with beamed ceilings, large windows that attract a lot of light, over-sized bedrooms with en-suite baths and dressing rooms, multiple maids rooms, servants halls that lead to eat-in kitchens and separate dining and living rooms and large gallery spaces as you enter.
As this is a co-operative, potential buyers are required to be passed by the board in order to purchase a unit. Having an experienced realtor on your side can help with this. Please call Upper East Side Apartments at 646 568 7175 to enquire about availability or to arrange a viewing.
