Description

Commanding views, extensive owner upgrades and privacy characterize this almost 4,500 square foot penthouse duplex at the William Sofield-designed 135 East 79th Street white-glove condominium. A distinct pre-war sensibility has been expertly blended with modern-day conveniences and technology to create this one-of-a-kind home in the sky.Direct elevator entry opens into the private vestibule landing and jewel-box like foyer boasting a stunning ebonized-black wrought iron curved staircase, elegant windowed powder room, built-in wet bar and a large walk-in coat closet. Beyond, the 21-foot long custom wood-paneled living room with 10-foot ceilings is bathed in glorious sunlight via a sparkling southern view exposure of midtown Manhattan and beyond.

The formal dining room, off the living room, features a fireplace and separate butler's pantry. The home's multiple entertaining spaces seamlessly flow from south to north and into the expansive media room, illuminated by a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto a Juliette balcony with unobstructed views. Custom built-ins, including a clever "television mirror?, complete the room.

The giant windowed eat-in kitchen offers bespoke hand-painted Christopher Peacock cabinetry, statuary stone slab counters with custom carved edges, oversized center island, Sub-Zero glass-front refrigerator, Wolf six-burner range, a Miele dishwasher and Kallista Jeton for Studio Sofield water fixtures.
