Super Low Monthly Maintenance Fee !

This expansive duplex home with a mezzanine level and roof garden is a rare find and exceptional value in one of the most desired neighborhoods in Manhattan. Enter the premises along a dramatic foyer opening into a double-height reception area filled with gallery-quality natural light permeating through oversized wall to wall windows on the upper level and in the living room.To the left is the grand 40’ x 23’ living / entertainment area featuring an angled original brick wood-burning fireplace and floor to ceiling windows. The recently renovated open kitchen boasts state-of-the-art Miele appliances with a Quartzite backsplash and Caesarstone countertops.

The large separate dining area, comfortably accommodates 12-person seating, runs along the original exposed brick wall.

On the upper level is the master bedroom with large triangular windows overlooking the roof garden.

It has a built-in home office and a large en suite master bath oasis.
