838 Fifth Avenue

838 5TH AVE

Building Description

Overlooking Central Park is a stately co-op known by its address: 820 Fifth Avenue. A pre-war apartment building similar to those that line Fifth Avenue and populate the subsection of the Upper East Side known as Lenox Hill, where 820 Fifth Avenue stands, it is amongst the most exclusive in the city, as well as being home to some of Manhattan's powerful elite, both in the past and present. 820 Fifth Avenue's etched-stone façade echoes Italian architecture, while capturing a New York sensibility. And that's without mentioning its location at the southern end of Museum Mile, home to a line of museums famed throughout the world.   A luxury apartment building since its completion in 1916, each apartment for sale at 820 Fifth Avenue is a grand statement of refined Manhattan living. Although fully customizable, all of the apartments feature the complex and divided floor plans common in pre-war apartments, as well as some rooms not found in modern buildings, such as maids' quarters and galleries. These quaint details set 820 Fifth Avenue apartments apart from new construction developments and give it a charm all its own. The amount of detail and care put into each and every apartment is well-known: each apartment features extensive crown molding and decorative patterns often lost in today's architecture. With the building as its own best amenity, little else can be said about 820 Fifth Avenue that can match its importance as an historic and renowned co-op in Manhattan.
