Description

39 East 79th Street was designed for Emily Post by Kenneth Murchison in 1926.As one opens the mahogany door off a private elevator one immediately experiences the exceptional, architectural details throughout this light-filled apartment, masterfully redesigned.

This incomparable penthouse is entirely surrounded by sprawling, planted terraces which redefine the norms of the use of space, craftsmanship and style. There is a seamless integration of indoor and outdoor space.

The living room with its floor-to-ceiling windows, maximizes the park and city views. A paneled library/second bedroom with en-suite onyx bath including tub and shower and home office is located off the living room. Along the corridor, off the living room, there is a magnificent onyx powder room.

A spacious and inviting dining room easily accommodates 12 guests. The state-of-the art chef’s-eat-in kitchen opens to the terrace where one can lounge, entertain, and dine with 6-8 people enjoying park and skyline views. A serene, master bedroom suite has en-suite onyx baths, one of which, overlooks the terrace greenery.

Each bath has an adjacent dressing room. Wisely organized and ample closets, drawers and shelves are artfully concealed.
