Description

Perched atop the Upper West Side's premier white-glove prewar condominium, The Olcott, boasting 1,741 sf of exquisite living quarters and the building's most spectacular outdoor terrace, Penthouse C is truly a marvel. Luxury living is at its finest, a mere half block from Central Park, in an elegant custom-designed 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath masterpiece with a phenomenal outdoor oasis that's expansive (approx. 1,100 sf!) and awe-inspiring!

A gracious entry gallery with walk-in closet greets your arrival, and introduces an absolutely rare and stunning interior with airy 10' ceilings.

Steps lead out to the incredible outdoor space, a prized treasure in the city. Entertain a crowd on 2 huge connecting sun-bathed terraces enhanced by lush trees & plantings, an irrigation system, gas fireplace & gas-fed integrated grilling station - against a backdrop of open city views that catch a glimpse of Central Park.

Inside, the extraordinary loft-like great room with living, dining and kitchen is the heart of the home, and a perfect setting for hosting with gleaming oak floors, decorative fireplace, extensive built-in cabinetry/shelving, and walls of windows overlooking the terrace and city. The open eat-in windowed kitchen, designed by a professional baker, is top of the line, affording effortless serving and a divine setting for the culinary connoisseur.

Here the chef enjoys every bell & whistle for inspired gourmet creations, from extensive custom cabinetry to generous Caesarstone quartz countertops, a premium suite of Miele commercial-grade appliances & large prep/dining bar. A beautifully-designed guest powder room offers access to the cleverly-concealed private laundry room with a Whirlpool washer-dryer plus lots of storage cabinetry.

Further down the hall is a large bedroom with oversized windows and a custom-outfitted closet, and a renovated marble & tile full bath with a soaking tub. The piece de resistance is the king-size master retreat with a huge custom-fitted walk-in closet & showstopper luxury spa bath, also finely renovated, clad in gorgeous tiles & marble.

All bathrooms are adorned with radiant heat porcelain floors. Among the other highlights of this modern dream home are tasteful millwork, state-of-the-art lighting, solid core doors, an integrated audio system, electronic blinds & temperature control throughout. A private storage cage also comes with the apartment.

Built in 1925 and reinvented to condominiums in 2006 by preeminent architect Andres Escobar, the full-service Olcott is a stately landmarked prewar building with a grand restored lobby, doorman & concierge, double-height fitness center, residents' dining room with catering kitchen, playroom, bicycle storage, cold storage & individual storage bins.

The superior locale is half a block from Central Park, near the world's best dining, shopping & cultural destinations, and numerous subway lines like the 1, 2, 3, B & C. Pets are welcomed! Show more
