Every detail in this meticulously renovated maisonette apartment has been attended to from the architectural details, marble floored entry gallery and marble bathrooms to the new fully equipped kitchen with Wolf stove and ovens, and sub Zero refrigerator. Special attention has been given to sound proofing with custom thermopane windows rendering the interior an oasis of calm, flooded with sunlight from the south and west exposures and cooled throughout with central air conditioning. Access via a front door from the lobby of the building, affords the full security of twenty-four hour doormen. An additional entry from the street, has been sealed to create a large well-appointed master bathroom. The marble entry gallery with powder room, leads to the spacious south-west corner living room and adjacent formal dining room with wood and bevelled glass pocket doors between. The large, private master bedroom has an abundance of closets and en suite bathroom. The second and third bedrooms have been cleverly designed with a sliding wall so that the space may be opened into one very large room. There is a second full bathroom off the bedroom hallway, and a service door leads to the outside maid's room, conveniently located right by the apartment and included in the sale. 1040 Fifth Avenue is one of Fifth Avenue's most prestigious and sought-after pre-war buildings, designed by the celebrated Rosario Candela in 1930, and home to the late Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Captains of Industry.
