Description

Designed with the highest standards of luxury and convenience in mind, this spectacular, approximate 7,000 square foot duplex features 5 bedrooms, 5½ bathrooms and a sprawling rooftop terrace that overlooks the Manhattan skyline from all angles. Boasting floor-to-ceiling windows in every room, this incredible home represents the pinnacle of aesthetic grandeur. A long, dramatic corridor sets the tone upon entry, opening to a gallery with a double height ceiling. To the right is a large dining room and den with uninterrupted south-facing views as far as the eye can see.

The north wing is crowned with a massive, sun-drenched living room graced by a leather-paneled, onyx-mantle fireplace and a wall of windows, and flows seamlessly to an outdoor terrace that runs the eastern length of this magnificent home. The chef’s kitchen is airy and bright, with storage sleekly hidden behind wood cabinetry, Caeserstone countertops, and premier appliances including a Jenn-Air gas cooktop, Miele double oven and dishwasher, oversized Sub-Zero refrigerator, and Viking wine refrigerator. The kitchen opens to a sunlit terrace perfect for a quick coffee or evening aperitif, also looked upon by a handsome library with custom shelving, a gas fireplace and double height windows.

An expansive guest room with a large ensuite bathroom boasts a glassed-in shower, double width sink and radiant heated floors, as well as a walk-in closet, and completes the suite of offerings on the main floor. Rising up to the private quarters via a glass and steel staircase, there are three large bedrooms: two with ensuite bathrooms and walk-in closets and another with an adjacent, subway-tiled bathroom with a combined bathtub and shower. Perfect for students, a windowed office with a custom-built workspace sits nestled between two bedrooms, and another distinguished and spacious office sits in the nest above the main floor gallery. The palatial primary bedroom suite is the embodiment of peace and ultimate splendor. With a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows and under coffered ceilings with discreet, soft lighting, the bedroom is a lush haven.

Clad in Calacatta Oro marble, the bright, luxurious ensuite bathroom features a freestanding soaking tub, huge stall shower, double vanity and radiant floor heating. A massive walk-in closet sits adjacent to the primary suite. Sitting at the top of this home and perfect for entertaining, relaxing and even creating a batting cage or basketball court, the 4,130 square foot, landscaped rooftop terrace boasts 360° views and a dining area with a fireplace and built-in Royal Gourmet grill station. An elevator that services every floor, Oak flooring underfoot, a laundry room with Bosch W/D, and ample storage are but a few of the thoughtful touches in this amazing home.

Designed by Cook + Fox, The Lucida is the Upper East Side’s first LEED-certified condominium, and boasts a stunning glass façade that makes every unit in the building delightfully sun-drenched. Amenities include full time doorman and concierge, a pool, state-of-the-art fitness center and bicycle storage. Conveniently located in the vicinity of Manhattan’s best schools, museums, restaurants, and shopping, and with transportation at your door, this is an incredible opportunity to own at a highly coveted address.
