Keys to the park and prewar style come with this Gramercy condo

Getting into Gramercy Park is famously difficult, but if you buy this three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath condo on the east edge of the greenspace, you'll get your very own set of keys.

The apartment is in an early 20th-century property that has retained elegant prewar touches inside and out; the interior features a decorative marble fireplace, spacious foyer, and delicate crown moldings, while the building facade is its own Gothic work of art, decked out with gargoyles, and cherubs. Listed for $5.9 million by Douglas Elliman, the apartment's price reflects its park access and distinctive style. 

You'll enter a spacious foyer, where a chandelier and dark wood ceiling beams create a dramatic first impression. The living room, anchored by its marble mantle, also features a bay window with views of the park just below. 

It's unusual to find a separate dining room this large in NYC—especially now that open plans are in vogue—but there's something to be said for having a spacious, discrete area in which to entertain. From here, you can access the kitchen directly; the stainless steel appliances, including an oversized fridge, should appeal to dedicated home cooks. 

The corner master bedroom guarantees you ample natural light, and the room features double closets for storage. The en-suite bath is roomy and elegant, with two sinks, a walk-in shower, and extensive marble tile. 

The second bedroom also offers decent closet space and its own bath, while the third is on the narrow side and may be best suited as a nursery, guest room, or office.

The listing notes that there is a washer and dryer unit in the apartment; amenities include full-time doorman service and a live-in super, as well as a gym.
