Presenting an incomparable opportunity to own and customize a sprawling residence in one of the crown jewels of Central Park West, the luxurious St. Urban. This grand 4 bedroom 3 bathroom gem in estate condition was purchased in 1966 and is in need of a complete gut-renovation. Bring your vision and your architect/designer to create a fabulous custom dream home overlooking the Park and Reservoir, in a full-service landmark building situated directly on Central Park. The elegance is enhanced by abundant natural light pouring in from oversized windows on 4 exposures, and breathtaking park views from the living room, dining room, and 3 of the bedrooms. Greeting your arrival is a large gracious formal gallery brightened by bayed windows. The expansive living room with fireplace affords a perfect setting for entertaining, adjoined by a large formal dining room which can fit a large table for seating guests. The eat-in kitchen offers a huge pantry closet, which accesses a hallway to the laundry room, staff room, and service elevator/entrance. The beautiful rounded primary bedroom resides in the northeast corner of the home next to a full bath. Of the additional 3 spacious bedrooms, two are on-suite and another has a big walk-in closet. 5N's generously-proportioned layout affords you so many possibilities for configuration of space that's best suited to your needs. Built circa 1900 and designed by Robert T. Lyons, the architecturally exquisite St. Urban is distinguished by its strikingly intricate Beaux-Art style, story-high lantern of copper, and prominent porte-coch re. Elevating the lifestyle of this magnificent 12-story building known for its white-glove service and security are 24-hour doorman, a resident manager, 2 porters, a state-of-the-art gym, children's play area, central laundry, basketball court, bike room, and pet-friendly policy.
