The Beresford is one of the World's greatest residential buildings. Located on Central Park West between 81st and 82nd streets and steps to Central Park and the American Museum of Natural History the Beresford is a masterpiece by legendary architect Emory Roth. As Andrew Alpern has aptly written in "Luxury Apartment Buildings in Manhattan, An Illustrated History," the Beresford is "a stone symphony…the grandeur comes in the embellishment…belt courses, stone balustrades, iron railings, rosettes and cartouches”. The Beresford was built in 1929. This wonderful Classic 6 is approximately 2200 +/- sq ft. All rooms are grand and well proportioned with high ceilings and prewar details. From the elegant entrance gallery and large bedrooms to the open kitchen with pantry and staff quarters to the spacious living room with fire place this residence has so much to be appreciated. There are two apartments per floor. This home needs work but shows very well!
