The BEST DEAL on CPW with 50 ft of Park frontage!
Welcome to The Kennilworth, one of the smallest Full Service Buildings on the Gold Coast of CPW. Features extra large windows with the peaceful view as your back drop for living.
As you enter into the double foyer of Apartment 2C, a Classic 8 residence, Central Park will be there in all of its splendor. Large rooms, expansive windows, 10ft high beamed ceilings, original moulding and detail, stunning original oak floors with mahogany inlay trim, abundant light facing East, South and West are only a few of the outstanding attributes that make up this wonderful home.
Being a classic apartment , all of the main rooms and hallways emanate from the foyer. The two entertaining rooms overlook Central Park. First is the large den with fireplace, that can be used as a formal dining room, a library or converted to a 4th bedroom. Open to the right is an extraordinarily gracious corner double living room/dining room, also with a fireplace, that boasts oversized windows overlooking the trees and Reservoir.
To the right of the foyer there is a hall of storage leading to the expansive and separate windowed kitchen with a large eating area, washer/dryer area, a maid's room, and full bath. Originally the layout offered 2 maids rooms, one of which was incorporated into the kitchen and is being used as an eating area. The kitchen also offers a separate entrance, opening directly into the service elevator.
The private bedroom wing is at the end of the foyer. It's own corridor leads to 3 spacious south facing bedrooms. There is a very large bathroom off the hall, and ample closet space. At the end of the hall, the primary bedroom feels like a hotel suite, with its 2 oversized windows facing South and West, 2 walk-in closets, and separate windowed primary bathroom.
The Kenilworth is known as a white-gloved, full service, intimate building located on the corner of Central Park West and 75th Street. Designed by Townsend, Steinle and Haskell, the building was built in 1908 and is situated in the middle of the historic Gold Coast on Central Park West, (which includes the Dakota, the San Remo, the Beresford and the Museum of Natural History), and exudes all of the early twentieth century charm one could ask for including, the extraordinary French second-empire beaux-arts lobby.
