At the forefront of the shift from private mansions on Fifth Avenue to the golden age of luxury apartment architecture was Rosario Candela, who in the beginning of the 1920's produced some of the most sought-after spaces in New York. His apartments are appointed with meticulous architectural details as inspiration from French and New Classical styles. Many price records for New York cooperative apartments have been set in Rosario Candela buildings.
This stunning 14 room Penthouse Triplex has been renovated blending contemporary style with classic Rosario Candela architecture. Hand carved moldings and door frames, a magnificent decorative 1010 plaster ceiling in the living room, and five beautiful fireplaces, are a few of the outstanding features of this Candela masterpiece. Updated additions include massive windows facing south and west to Central Park, central AC, customized closets and all new appliances and bathroom fixtures.
