Condo pick of the week

A condo in a new development that fits right in with the neighborhood

The three-bedroom condo is in a Carnegie Hill property that was completed last year.

Residents of the buildings that neighbor what is now 1110 Park Avenue complained, when the development was announced, that it would block their views; construction went forward, but locals can take heart in the fact that at least the boutique condominiums blend in with the neighborhood. The building's limestone facade suits its elegant, turn-of-the-century Carnegie Hill surroundings, and with only nine apartments, residents are afforded quiet and privacy. This three-bedroom, listed at $8.325 million by Toll Brothers, is rather pricey for the area, though both the newness and the plentiful amenities may account for the cost. 

The condo, which occupies the entire fourth floor, boasts ten-foot ceilings and Park Avenue views. The living room, accented by stylish custom millwork, has an attached Juliette balcony that, while narrow, allows for letting in plenty of sunlight and air. The adjacent library's mahogany paneling imbues the space with a classical vibe, despite the unit's newness. 

The kitchen was crafted by the celebrated English designer Christopher Peacock, and boasts unique, hand-painted cabinets, marble countertops, and top-shelf appliances—not to mention tons of storage space and a walk-in pantry. The dining room, with its floor-to-ceiling windows, makes for a sunny spot for entertaining. 

Each of the three bedrooms in this condo have their own en-suite baths, but the master's, with its walk-in rain shower, double vanity, and deep, standalone soaking tub, is the star. The marble tiling won't get chilly in the winter, either, as the bathroom has heated floors. The property is decked out with the perks one would expect from a high-end new development, including 24-hour concierge service, a fitness center, and on-site storage, as well as some extras, in the form of a building wine cellar, in which residents are entitled to their own private, climate-controlled wine lockers. The one thing 1110 Park seems to be lacking, going by the listing, is outdoor space—but that's what Central Park is for, isn't it?
