Classic, historic, and a legendary location overlooking Central Park – fitting for a journalism giant’s home.
Peter Jennings’ three-bedroom-plus-library co-op has been exclusively listed by Bonnie Chajet and Lisa Chajet of Coldwell Banker Warburg. The late ABC World News Tonight anchor’s widow, Kayce Freed Jennings, currently owns the residence, which features a classic 9 layout with grand prewar rooms that have been thoughtfully renovated to include central AC, modern kitchen and baths, and ample outfitted closets.
Among the home’s most captivating elements: jaw-dropping views of Central Park’s lush green treetops stream into the living room’s three oversized windows. The sweeping 30-foot living room promises to be the ultimate entertainer’s space, featuring soaring ceilings, multiple seating areas and a wood-burning fireplace with park views as the backdrop. An oversized dining room, highlighted by exterior windows facing west that reveal views of Upper West Side brownstones and New York City sunsets, offers yet another inspiring space from which to host guests. Freed Jennings told The Wall Street Journal that the residence has been the site of many book parties and events for nonprofits over the years, noting the sunlight and views of the park.
Other standout features include a spacious eat-in kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances and ample storage space, as well as laundry facilities. The southern wing of the residence showcases a stunning wood-paneled library and three main bedrooms, including the primary bedroom suite with its open views of the park and downtown and luxurious ensuite bath featuring double sinks, a separate shower, and tub.
Situated in one of the city’s most beautiful pre-war co-ops, this extraordinary Central Park West home comes with white-glove service: a 24-hour doorman, a Resident Manager, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and more.
