Property Description

This sophisticated, timeless duplex in the coveted Gainsborough Studios enjoys direct, unobstructed, and engaging views of Central Park from double-height windows.

Graced with abundant light, it features a voluminous living room with an 18-foot-ceiling and wood burning fireplace, two bedrooms, one-and-a-half baths, open dining area, lovely kitchen, washer/dryer, and central air.

The Gainsborough is one of those extraordinary buildings that make New York so unique. Built in 1908, it is a rare surviving example of artists' cooperative housing, built to provide both living and working spaces for successful artists, many of whom knew each other.

It has remained a very private, elegant place to live since its inception, making it one of the most desirable addresses in the city.

The building's handsome facade fittingly features a bust of 18th century landscape and portrait painter Thomas Gainsborough, multi-color tile embedded in brick and an impressive frieze entitled "A Festival Procession of the Arts." Charles Buckman, innovator of apartment designs using the duplex plan, was the building's architect.

The Gainsborough has been home to artists, writers, editors, historians, and art and cultural enthusiasts over the years. The tradition continues today.

This apartment was the home of legendary raconteur and Random House editor Joseph M. Fox, who edited such writers as Truman Capote (rumored to have written Breakfast at Tiffany's in the guest room), John Irving, Philip Roth, Ralph Ellison, and Anthony Lewis.

All in the heart of The City, with Time Warner Center, countless cultural offerings, Michelin-star dining, and shopping nearby.

Full time staff, 50% financing. Pied-a-terre allowed. Pets upon board approval.
