Description

Prewar Condominium Duplex Penthouse Perfection. Penthouse D is an architectural masterpiece comprising nearly 2,200 sqft of interior space and an extraordinary 700 sqft of private terraces. This stunning, triple mint penthouse with private elevator entry atop one of the Upper Westside's finest full service, art deco condominiums is an exceptional offering. Two primary bedroom suites are found on the first level, each with its own beautiful en-suite bath swathed in slab marble and custom cabinetry. Multiple sun-filled South facing terraces off both bedrooms boast unobstructed views and tranquil privacy.

A gorgeous walk-in private dressing room and closet with a sky lit domed ceiling and encased in custom walnut afford the ultimate luxury experience. Connected by a stunning glass and walnut custom staircase, the second level is where you'll find the open plan living spaces with ceiling heights up to 14 feet. Adjacent is an enormous, South facing, private terrace with Eastern, Western and Southern skyline views out to the rivers and boroughs. The open plan loft-like living and dining spaces feature abundant light through oversized North and South facing windows and multiple skylights. The beautiful, windowed custom kitchen was built with the finest appliances and adorned with artisan mill-worked cabinetry. The oversized library/den area is surrounded by a wall of windows with Southern exposure and open access to the expansive terrace replete with art deco detail, iron railings and panoramic city views. The level of finish throughout the entire property is the finest available including custom walnut plank floors, limestone and marble clad bathrooms, high end European kitchen appliances and fixtures and custom closet detail in every room.

A beautifully crafted wood burning fireplace completes one of the finest offerings available. The Pythian is a full service condominium with a long history, located on the Upper West Side's Gold Coast just steps from Central Park, Lincoln Center, and The Hudson River Greenway. Designed by Thomas W. Lamb and built in 1927, it was occupied by the Knights of Pythias until the 1940's when it became the headquarters for Decca Records.

Its striking facade and architectural features make it a stand out landmark and an Upper West Side icon. Amenities include a full-time doorman, live- in super, porter, laundry room, kids playroom, storage and a brand new gym.
