This contemporary renovated 4-bedroom penthouse at 142 Fifth Avenue is an oasis in the heart of Manhattan, offering refined living, lavish layouts, and elegant inclusions including its own wonderfully landscaped roof garden overlooking lower Fifth Avenue. Location, light, views, and meticulous design define this Fifth Avenue residence, while prewar elegance combines with modern luxury amenities to create truly grand living. The home features wide-plank oak flooring, a well-appointed kitchen with Subzero and Miele appliances, three full bathrooms with radiant floor heating and top-of-the-line fixtures, a fully-wired Audio Visual system throughout, multi-zoned central air, and a complete zoned irrigation system in the roof garden. After exiting the keyed elevator directly into the expansive floor-through apartment, witness views of the magnificent architecture of its iconic Landmark district and the flood of light from beautiful arched windows throughout the apartment. The entry vestibule is separated from the large living area with custom built-in closets.

To the left is a large dining room/library. This warm east-and south-facing corner room has unobstructed views of the magnificent rooftops and buildings along lower Fifth Avenue. There are many design options for this lofty 15 by 24-foot space; currently, it serves as both a library and formal dining room.

To the right of the entrance hall is a welcoming living room with a sleek gas-burning fireplace framed in stone. Tucked away is a graceful powder bathroom and antechamber with Waterworks washbasin. The open eat-in-kitchen has top-of-the-line appliances including a Subzero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, wine refrigerator, and Imperial Danby marble countertops.

Adjacent is the custom built-in banquet style dining area and across from it – separated by sliding doors – is a spacious and bright room currently configured as a playroom. Alternatively, it can be reconfigured as a den, home office or a new dining area to an expanded kitchen. Through a doorway separating the home’s public from private spaces is the laundry room, a south-facing bedroom, and full bathroom and a third bedroom with a large en-suite bathroom and generous walk-in closet.

At the top of the stairs, on the 2nd floor is a sun-drenched sitting room landing with North, South and Eastern exposures. One doorway off this landing leads to the serene master bedroom suite; and on the opposite side, glass doors open up to the expansive beautifully-landscaped private roof terrace. The roof garden is a quintessential outdoor entertaining space, measuring 53 by 26 feet and outfitted with two seating areas, a dining area, and grill. Beautifully landscaped by Gunn Landscape Architecture with thoughtfully planned built-in planters and pots boasting ivy, evergreens, wisteria, and trees, there is a multi-zone irrigation system in place with independent timer mechanisms for each zone.

The terrace offers open views up and down Fifth Avenue as well as of the Empire State Building and Metlife Clock Tower. Situated between Madison Square Park and Union Square with easy access to Uptown, Downtown, the East and West sides, this centrally-located home is just blocks away from NYC's largest farmer market (the Union Square Greenmarket) and the City’s best restaurants. 142 5th Avenue is a 1900 Beaux-Arts cooperative building with a full-time superintendent. Please note that the listed price per square foot and number of square feet do not reflect the outdoor terrace space - an additional 1,200 square feet.
