Built in 1956

Impeccably designed 5 bedroom, 4 bath apartment once home to a world famous author and a Fortune 500 CEO. Move right into this mint corner apartment which was thoughtfully configured to live, work, and entertain in style. The apartment is flooded with light from the wall-to-wall windows that line its East, South and West exposures.

A bright and spacious entry foyer flows into a large living room and dining area with West facing windows all along its length. The top of the line windowed eat-in kitchen is lined with custom cherry wood cabinets, black granite counter tops, and cream marble backsplash. It has a matching built-in custom banquette with seating for 5, and appliances from Wolf and Sub-Zero. The separate service entrance allows for easy deliveries, catering services while entertaining, and a "mud room" area for extra storage.

The separate bedroom wing features three bedrooms, each with generous closet space. The private hallway leading to the bedrooms has plenty of additional storage, including shoe closets, a walk-in closet, linen closet, and built-in bookshelves. There is also a sound-dampened media room/den with a custom built-in desk and bookcases. The entire wing can be closed off from the rest of the apartment via glass French doors for privacy.

A guest bedroom with its own bathroom off the entrance foyer provides privacy to guests, as does the powder room off the entertaining area. Additional closets with louvred doors contain the Miele washer and dryer, and also provide spill-over storage and a "drying closet". The entrance foyer includes two large coat closets. The apartment has wooden floors and high speed internet wiring throughout.

Also available for an additional cost is an independent office / staff apartment located off the building lobby. This apartment has air-conditioning, nice closet space, an attached full bath, and a window overlooking townhouse gardens making it ideal for a home office or a staff apartment.

The Charles House Condominium is superbly located just across from the Mark Hotel and some of the UES most famous restaurants. It is a block from Central Park and centrally located to museums and transportation. This white glove building which has just finished a complete renovation of the building lobby and hallways has a 24 hour doorman, gym, a beautiful roof deck with Central Park views, private storage and a bike room. The building also has direct/secure access to an on-site garage accessible through the basement; porters are available to help load and unload packages directly into the building without worrying about inclement weather. Pets are permitted. There is currently a monthly assessment of $607.52.
