Description

THE CAMPANILE - THE PENTHOUSE

The Campanile Penthouse is a recently and magnificently renovated duplex penthouse which will take your breath away with its unobstructed views of the East River and beautifully planted terraces on both levels. This penthouse, with approximately 3,000 interior square feet and 2,000 square feet of terraces, occupies the top two floors and roof of the illustrious Campanile, a 14-story "Jazz-Age" Venetian-Gothic era prewar co-op with just 16 full floor or duplex apartments at the end of a cul-de-sac at 450 East 52nd Street. Previously owned by stage legend Mary Martin, well known for her roles in Peter Pan, South Pacific and the Sound of Music, this is truly a one-of-a-kind penthouse renovated to absolute perfection with the most remarkable architectural details, light and views.

The elevator opens directly into the penthouse through restored bronze bank vault doors that serve as a vestibule into a large gallery.

As you enter, you are immediately engulfed in a wide open view south and east over the East River as far as the eye can see. The great room with wood burning fireplace is over 32 feet in length and surrounded by a wall of oversized windows and three French doors leading out to a large and beautiful terrace that seems to float over the River. The adjacent study/bedroom features similar views, along with stunning wood paneling and an onyx-clad bath with a radiant heated marble floor.

The room seamlessly converts to a bedroom with recessed pocket doors. The hallway leads past a bronze and marble floating staircase to the primary bedroom which features a wall of glass and 2 French doors leading to a beautiful north and east facing terrace. The bedroom has 2 large walk-in closets and an exquisite marble bath with soaking tub, oversized steam shower and vanity, radiant heated marble floor and a view of the River and beyond.

This level also has a wet bar, walk-in and temperature controlled wine storage room, laundry room, privately accessed service elevator and vestibule and just under 10 foot ceilings.

An architecturally stunning staircase leads to the dining level featuring a dramatic fireplace, soaring ceilings over 11 feet and majestic River and skyline views. A sun room with glass walls has views that make you feel as though you're on a yacht. On this level you prepare dinner in the professional kitchen complete with La Cornue Grand Palais 180 stove and entertain friends while they lounge on the enormous and beautifully planted wraparound terrace which is accessed both from the sun room and 3 French doors in the dining area.

The north portion of the terrace has an outdoor grill with a dedicated gas line. This floor has a powder room and stunning arched doors and windows mimicking the arched architectural details on the building's chimney and brickwork. There is nothing else like it in the entire city and anyone who visits will never forget it.

The Campanile penthouse features its own HVAC system allowing you to completely control both heat and central air without having to rely on the building's systems.

A custom Lutron Smart System controls lighting, shades, and music throughout the apartment.

The Campanile was completed during the Great Gatsby era in 1927 and since first opening has been home to celebrities and industry titans such as Greta Garbo, Rex Harrison, Ethel Barrymore, the Rothschilds, H.J. Heinz, Noel Coward, Henry Miller, Ralph Pulitzer, in addition to being home to the Mayfair Yacht Club in the 1930's and even a speakeasy during Prohibition. The building installed new elevators in 2020 and the lobby was recently renovated.

Local Law 11 work is just being completed and scaffolding is expected to come down in the spring. There are no significant capital projects on the horizon. Pets are allowed with board approval.
