944 Fifth Avenue, Estate of the Day
We got the tip on this apartment through the New York Observer and what a prize pad it is. The home which formerly belonged tothe late Lilyan Spitzer Lindemann, takes up the entire fifth floor and has treetop Central Park views from the living room, library and master bedroom. The private elevator foyer leads into a reception gallery with marble floor and cloakroom with powder room. The drawing room has a ornate fireplace and Rococo style paneling. French doors open to the adjacent library with Louis XV style paneling and there is a large dining room also off the entrance gallery. The master bedroom also has a fireplace, marble bathroom and large closets. There are three additional large bedrooms and a fifth bedroom created from two of the original five maids' rooms. The kitchen has a butler's pantry and there is a staff dining room as well as a double and a single maid's room with bathroom. It is listed at $18.9 million. After the jump, the very definition of the word grand.
