Gallery Space: This Modern Park Avenue Abode Is Perfect for a Collector

The sleek aesthetic isn't often found in this area of the Upper East Side

“An open layout is a rare commodity on Park Avenue,” Stribling broker Marcy Sigler declared, entering the marble foyer of the sixteenth floor co-op she is listing for $5.85 million.

Indeed, the current configuration of the apartment at 710 Park Avenue bears little resemblance to the classic six one might expect of such an address—the sellers completed a major renovation when they moved in 15 years ago, knocking down most of the walls in the public rooms.

Instead of the typical dark herringbone wood floors of an Upper East Side co-op, white limestone continues throughout.

“They collect a lot of art,” Sigler informed us, noting that the spacious entertaining area allows them to properly display their collection on the plethora of wall space. “This neighborhood seems to attract lovers of art,” she opined.

“There are not only east exposures, but also west exposures,” Sigler added, leading us into the kitchen to see firsthand the aforementioned western cityscape.

Other than the views, the kitchen is also equipped with black granite countertops, a Sub-Zero fridge and Miele appliances. It is open to an additional family room, where the owners installed a projection screen for an ideal cinematic experience.

Despite the open space, “you still have privacy, because of the split bedroom wings,” Sigler noted, walking us to the children’s wing, where each of the two bedrooms boasts an en-suite bath, though only one is outfitted with an enviable walk-in closet.

The master suite is on the opposite side of the apartment, with a walk-in closet and marble-tiled bathroom with bathtub and rain shower. An additional dressing room contains a vanity and wet bar.

The light and views, however, are perhaps the most covetable aspects of the home. “It has about 60 feet of frontage facing Park Avenue,” Sigler pointed out, walking back into the open living and dining space. “If you really wanted to have a formal dinner party, you could put a screen up.”

Still, “I think this would really appeal to an art collector,” Sigler insisted, surveying the expanse of white walls once more. “It is a loft-style apartment on Park Avenue,” she declared. “It’s a rare find!”
