Perched high above the tree tops of Central Park, situated at one of the city's most prestigious addresses, sits the exceptional, Honorable C. Douglas Dillon residence. This property is being offered to the market for the first time in more than seventy years.

Boasting wonderful uninterrupted views of the park and the city skyline, this is most notable for its commanding frontage along Fifth Avenue. The glorious tripartite floor to ceiling windows are a distinguishing feature of the 10th floor and clearly differentiate the apartment, within the noble limestone façade of 960 Fifth Avenue, from any other. Gracing the imposing Candela designed facade, these stunning windows represent a unique feature illuminating the charming Library and the baronial Dining Room. The Living Room, boasts exceptionally lovely French 18th century, museum-quality, boisseries and parquet de Versailles floors.

Starting with the Gallery, the proportions of each room are elegant and refined....even at times decidedly majestic. The delightful entertaining rooms are all prominently situated to enjoy the glorious views of the Park. Meanwhile the ample private wing, consisting of five bedrooms, is brilliantly situated along the southern flank of the building. The wonderful original marble clad bathrooms are also fortunately still intact as are the many huge closets. The service component of the residence includes a very large Pantry, a bright Kitchen and a Servants Hall plus three Maids Rooms and a Bathroom.

Simply put, the entirety of the floor plan is utter perfection for a buyer seeking both elegance and tremendous grandeur in the finest location on the Upper East Side. Moreover, throughout the residence, Rosario Candela’s celebrated genius as the architect of New York’s greatest residential edifices is in full evidence. In light of the highly desirable provenance, the original period millwork, hard floors and hardware have all been impeccably maintained under the excellent stewardship of the family.

Building amenities include a fabulous terraced penthouse gym, a full time in-house French chef to cater dinners and parties, and usage of the celebrated Georgian Room at 1 East 77th Street for private entertaining.

This unique sun lit trophy apartment is a true architectural tour de force and a once in lifetime opportunity to own one of the most significant white-glove prewar residences on Fifth Avenue.
