A truly stunning building, those stumbling across 941 Park Avenue for the first time are likely to be struck by the arresting beauty of its exterior. 941 Park is part of the architectural heritage of the area, having been designed back in the 1920s by Schwartz & Gross, the architectural firm responsible for much of Park Avenue’s distinctive identity. However, this building represents a break from the norm of Schwartz & Gross, with simply captivating units.
Built in 1927, 941 Park features beautifully sculpted limestone pilasters which create a delicious contrast against the dark red brick of the rest of the building’s façade. This truly is a property for someone with an eye for tasteful aesthetic beauty.
Venturing inside, the attention to detail continues. Across the building’s 16 stories there are only 34 apartments, giving the building’s designers the room to really put their own stamp onto each living area. There are two sets of elevators that service separate apartments within the building. Units in 941 Park are characterized by large living spaces, commanding views of Park Avenue and excellent natural light through the large windows. Many of the units are duplexes and feature maids quarters, eat-in-kitchens, separate dining rooms, large libraries, and high ceilings.
Of course, taste extends far beyond the home. The nearby art galleries and boutiques along Madison Avenue make a property in 941 Park Avenue far more than just an apartment; it is a lifestyle choice. Numerous museums and points of interest are also found nearby, including the Metropolitan Museum and – of course – the sprawling Central Park that is accessible just a couple of blocks away.
The acclaimed PS 6 School is also located nearby, and the onsite nursery makes it ideal for children within the building. The full time doorman and fitness room also help to ensure that this building is as practical as it is striking.
Of course, such prestigious properties can also be rather exclusive. Contact Upper East Side Apartments at 646 568 7175 to set up a viewing for apartments 941 Park Avenue.
