Description

Welcome to Frost House in prime Lenox Hill where luxury and history awaits you. Penthouse E is a one-of-a-kind duplex featuring private outdoor space, huge windows, tons of light and an exquisite renovation. PHE is perfect for entertaining or as your private sanctuary tucked away on the Upper East Side.

The penthouse floor was once the home of Ace McFarlane of KISS and James Brown, the King of Soul. As you enter the apartment you will be drawn instantly to the floor to ceiling windows calling you out to the terrace overlooking 3rd Avenue with open views. The terrace has its own water for an installed irrigation system with timer or hose and electric outside. It is the perfect space for sitting with friends or enjoying a quiet night alone.

You will enjoy the privacy of a split-level apartment with a spacious living / dining space, central air, grey white oak floors (with sound proofing), Legrand outlets and an open staircase complimented by built-in bookshelves and a coat closet underneath (across from the kitchen). The kitchen features recessed lighting, modern open shelving, a Franke stainless steel sink, quartz countertops, Bertazonni stove, Haier over the stove microwave and vent, undercounter cabinets, panel covered Leibherr refrigerator and Blomberg dishwasher, touchless Delta faucet, appliance garage, Edelman leather and nickel hardware and Porcelanosa tile. Head up the stairs and as you enter the bedroom you will be greeted by a row of windows facing east with light pouring in.

The bedroom is king size with 2 closets (including a large walk-in California closet), there is additional storage space on the west side wall by the 2nd closet, a reading corner and work from home space with open sky. There is a linen closet just outside the bedroom. The bathroom on the 2nd floor features Porcelanosa tile, walnut cabinetry and vanity, a Kohler shower system and touchless toilet, plus a Bain Ultra tub with cutting edge thermo-heating zones and Geysair massage technologies.

Recent completed capital improvements include: The electric was redone in 2024, a new air conditioner system was installed in 2023 (creating a reduction in gas bills) and the installation of an instant hot water heater in 2022. The buildings energy efficiency went from a D to a B with all of the coops proactive work. Local Law 11 takes place later this year and is already paid for.

The penthouses will be completed first. There is NO assessment for PHE. Washer / Dryer permitted to be added in unit with board approval. 1160 3rd Avenue is a perfect location. This block was once the home to Barbara Streisand and Liza Minnelli.

These days Frost House provides easy train access (Q, N, R, W, 6), Central Park, Bloomingdales and Whole Foods coming soon across the street! There is also a Trader Joe’s on 1st & 60th and Ouri’s just downstairs. Your day to day can’t get more convenient. Building amenities feature: a full-time doorman, live in super, bike room, laundry in the building and a bulk rate cable / internet deal through Spectrum for ONLY $57.

The pet policy: Cats permitted – No dogs. Pending board approval, the coop permits pied-a-terre, co-purchasing, sublets and will consider gifting, trusts and buying in an LLC.
