The spectacular home boasts airy 10’5" ceilings and open exposures to the south, east and north capturing stunning panoramas of the city and Central Park. A gracious foyer welcomes your arrival and leads to an expansive great room with dramatic beamed ceilings and a wet bar with wine cooler for lounging, dining and hosting.

Adjacent is a handsome sky-lit study, and fabulous windowed kitchen appointed with top-of-the-line appliances. Also on the main level is a peaceful wing with 3 bedrooms (2 with lovely skylight windows and en-suite baths), as well as an en-suite bedroom/office off the entry, a laundry room, and a guest powder room. The 38’-long private terrace, perfect for plants and outdoor enjoyment, is accessed through glass doors from the dining area, kitchen and bedroom/office.

Level 2 presents an elegant primary bedroom retreat featuring double walk-in and additional closets.

Refresh in the sky-lit en-suite bath offering a soothing soaking tub, dual sink vanity and separate shower.

A game room with kitchenette adjoins the family room and makes a fun gathering spot.
