The Plaza is one of New York City’s most famous landmarks. The 21-story, French Renaissance-inspired château-style hotel features also a host of residences and condominiums that are rarely up for grabs. That once-in-a-lifetime opportunity has presented itself right now.
A two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment is situated in the Plaza Private Residences at 1 Central Park South Apartment 1213. The apartment has 11-foot ceilings, signature decorative finishes (exclusive to Plaza residences), a formal foyer, a sprawling living room, and massive windows overlooking Grand Army Plaza and Fifth Avenue at the southwest corner of Central Park. Further, the living room has a decorative marble mantel and wide-plank herringbone flooring, and opposite the foyer, an expansive formal dining room.
The two bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, and the primary suite – a corner room – has views to the north of Central Park, and to the east of Grand Army Plaza. You can even fit a home office in as well! Plus, the primary bathroom has a marble-clad walk-in shower, a double-sink vanity, and two walk-in closets.
The Plaza was built in 1905 by Henry J. Hardenberg, and sits at the convergence of Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue shopping district and Central Park. The building had become an important part of the city’s architectural history, similar to the Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library Main Branch. The National Trust for Historic Preservation recognized the Plaza Hotel as a Historic Hotel of America.
Homebuyers at 1 Central Park South have access to the hotel’s Caudalie Vinotherapie Spa, the Warren-Tricomi Salon, and La Palestra fitness center. There’s even a 24-hour door staff, hotel-style services like in-room dining, and daily housekeeping.
