Perched high above one of the most desirable stretches of Park Avenue, this gracious prewar cooperative is flooded with natural sunlight through all four exposures, accentuated by large French windows and high ceilings. Residence 14 is one of only 15 full-floor apartments at the acclaimed 891 Park Avenue. (Where French singer and international star Edith Piaf is rumored to have resided).

Charming pre-war details can be found throughout: notably the oak herringbone floors, beamed 9’+ ceilings and extensive wall space to display fine art & collectibles. The living room is framed by oversized sun-drenched windows showcasing sweeping views of Park Avenue and the surrounding architecture that is quintessential Upper East Side. The living room leads into a dining area, which accommodates a table for 12 and features a North-facing window. Off the dining area is the galley kitchen with abundant storage throughout.
