Description

55 Liberty Street, PH 32

Extremely private and an entertainer’s dream, this 2 bedroom, 1700 sq ft penthouse has unparalleled views and light with 12 windows, 11-foot ceilings and south, east and west exposures. This one-of-a-kind home encompasses the entire 32nd floor and its spectacular views stretch 180 degrees from the East River and south over the Wall Street canyon to the Hudson River - an extremely rare find, with gargoyles at eye-level outside every window. The welcoming foyer leads into an expansive living room (30’ 26’) featuring a wood-burning fireplace, nooks, an office and a home theater.

The sleek, windowed chef’s kitchen with stainless-steel appliances and cabinets opens onto the light-filled dining room. The grand primary bedroom is outfitted with exceptional built-in closets and hidden storage and has a windowed en suite bath. A charming second bedroom or library, with its floor-to-ceiling bookshelf and eastern light, is a wonderful place to read or relax, and it’s across from the second full bathroom.

Other attributes of this incomparable home include vaulted ceilings, rooms with the dramatic slopes of a garret, hardwood and marble flooring as well as an in unit washer dryer. The maintenance is over 60% tax-deductible and includes gas, water and heat..

Designed by Henry Ives Cobb, Liberty Tower was upon its completion in 1910 "one of only a handful of skyscrapers," according to The New York Times. "Its striking Gothic style, the centuries-old inspiration for cathedral spires that reach into the sky to approach the divine, is central to the tower’s romantic appeal," and the terra-cotta facade is richly adorned with birds, alligators, flowers and gargoyles.

Designated a city landmark in 1982 and added the following year to the National Register of Historic Places, the building also received a preservation award from the New York Landmarks Conservancy in 2010.

Liberty Tower staff includes 24-hour doormen, porters and a live-in superintendent. The building is pet-friendly and permits rentals as well as pieds-a-terre. Tenants can easily load and unload their vehicles at a side entrance, which also allows for deliveries.

Located only a few blocks away are the new 44,000 sq ft Whole Foods and the entrance to the Fulton Center complex, which has nearly every subway line and connects to the World Trade Center / PATH train, Brookfield Place, Hudson Eats and Le District. Enjoy a movie across the street at the new Alamo Draft House or stroll through the neighborhood to dine at one of the amazing restaurants including Manhatta, NOBU, CUT to name a few or head over to the renewed historic South Street Seaport with the flagship Pier 17 and its highly acclaimed restaurants including The Fulton, Industry Kitchen and Malibu Farm.
