The Manhattan co-op that late fashion maven Kate Spade resided in before passing away last year is now for sale. The designer purchased the 3,025-square-foot apartment in 1999 with Andy Spade, her husband and business partner, for $2,675,000, as noted by the Wall Street Journal

Sited at the corner of Park Avenue and 77th Street, the 3,025-square-foot apartment features an elongated, octagonal foyer with 10-foot-high ceilings and lustrous, herringbone-pattern original hardwood floors.

Perched on the third floor of a fully staffed building which was originally built in 1914, the historic abode is conveniently located in the charming Lenox Hill neighborhood and is only two blocks from Central Park. Scroll ahead to see the light-filled property, currently listed for $6,350,000.

Just off the foyer is a luxe living room, which is anchored by expansive windows and a delicately carved wood-burning fireplace. The spacious area is flanked by a corner library and dining room, creating a seamless flow of open space. 

Featuring a timeless black-and-white marble checkerboard floor, the eat-in kitchen receives an abundance of natural light thanks to its huge, six-over-six pane sash window.  

The kitchen also includes an unusually lengthy butler’s pantry, which measures more than 21 feet long. With glass-fronted cabinets that extend to the high ceilings, the well-equipped pantry provides plenty of storage while allowing for easy entertaining.

An antique chandelier hangs gracefully above the textured wooden table in the dining room.

Eye-catching Chinese red lacquered bookshelves line the wall in the home's corner library.

850 Park Avenue 3B New York, NY 10075 is currently listed for $6,350,000 by Randall Gianopulos of Sotheby’s International Realty.
