Park Avenue pre-war elegance and expanse are defined by this mint four bedroom, four and a half bath duplex. This stunning home's two full floors provide the luxuries of private house living with the service and security of a white-glove cooperative.
A private elevator vestibule opens to the Foyer with its classic elliptical staircase and powder room. Graceful arched entranceways showcase the spectacular Living and Dining Rooms. The expansive (36-by-18) corner Living Room has two exposures with views east across 79th Street and north over Park Avenue, providing abundant daily light and a captivating cityscape at night. Ten foot ceilings are adorned with dentil crown moldings, and the original 1924 carved Italian marble mantle frames the first of this home's two wood burning fireplaces. The grand Dining Room with egg and dart crown moldings can accommodate intimate gatherings or dinner parties of twenty or more. These front rooms create the perfect setting for gracious entertaining as well as elegant daily living. The Kitchen wing is introduced by a Butler's Pantry with wet bar, Subzero wine cooler and dishwasher, and features generous storage for glassware, china and silver – a caterer's delight. The magnificent eat-in Chef's Kitchen is outfitted with an eight-burner Viking professional chef's range, double ovens, Sub-Zero refrigerator, large center island, and custom cabinetry throughout. Light from the east facing windows streams into the Kitchen and adjoining eating and sitting area perfect for informal dining. The Kitchen wing is capped off with a Laundry Room with additional storage, and a maid's room currently used as a home gym. The apartment is equipped with a multi-zone central air conditioning system.
The living quarters upstairs are accessible either by elevator or staircase and feature four bedrooms and four bathrooms, as well as a paneled library (could be converted back to a bedroom) with a wood burning fireplace. The luxurious corner master suite has picturesque views up Park Avenue with two bathrooms, a spacious walk-in closet and abundant storage in two additional closets. The second bedroom faces east with an en-suite bathroom and walk in closet. The third bedroom has southern and eastern exposures with a walk-in closet and shares a bathroom with the fourth bedroom, currently used as an office with custom desk and built-ins.
Designed by architects John Sloan and Albert Nast and built in Park occupies the southwest corner of 79th Street and Park. The colorful and charming Tuscan-style, terra cotta facade introduces this special and unique building. Full-time doorman and superintendent. Storage and additional laundry facilities in basement. Pets permitted. The building allows 35% financing and there is a flip tax of 3% paid by the purchaser.

A white glove building on the Upper East Side’s Gold Coast and most coveted intersection on 79th street, 898 Park Avenue features a full time doorman, full time superintendent, elevator access and laundry/storage in the basement.

Mandel was one of the pre-war era's distinguished developers and his work includes the Pershing Square office building (100 E 42nd street) and more notably, London Terrace on West 23rd street.
