Description

Welcome to Penthouse A! Located on the 34th floor with some of the most spectacular east, south and west vistas of New York City, this four-bedroom (convertible five) home is turn-key, having recently received a full gut renovation where no expense was spared. Some of the work included: natural white oak (8") floors that run throughout the entire home, brand new (soundproof) windows, custom concrete kitchen with the finest Bosch appliances, Venetian plaster walls, glass windowsills, Tom Dixon light fixtures, and the list goes on!

The entire home is flooded with light and each exposure is open to a breathtaking view. As you enter the home you are greeted by a spacious entry which is flooded with light and the first thing you see is an open view of the East River. As you make your way to the sprawling living and dining space, with both eastern and southern exposures, you are greeted by views of the iconic New York City skyline, Long Island City, The famed United Nations, classic 59th Street Bridge and more!

Enjoy a sunrise coffee on the eastern terrace (and a cocktail at dusk on the western terrace). Located parallel to the eastern terrace is a sprawling open chef's kitchen, perfect for cooking a small meal or catering the largest of dinner parties. A full bathroom with tub is conveniently located in this wing of the home as well.

 

As you make your way down the hallway passing a large walk-in storage room and pantry, you'll find a washer/dryer and another full bathroom.

Two bedrooms are located in the south west corner of the home, one of which has a terrace high above Midtown, and the other bedroom with a corner view of the enchanting Chrysler and Empire State Buildings. Both bedrooms have custom closets with plenty of storage.

 

As you make your way into the master suite, you are greeted by even more skyline and East River views. An oversized dressing room can be found here as well, which has been thoughtfully built out to maximize the space.

The beautiful windowed master bathroom, with double vanity, has a direct view of the Empire State Building for a majestic shower experience like no other you've ever experienced. A fourth bedroom can be found off the living room, and has a direct view of The East River. All of this in a lovely and sophisticated white glove co-op building featuring the desired amenities commensurate with such a palace in the sky.

 

The Connaught is located at the corner of 54th Street and Second Avenue and is a full-service building.

Built in 1978, the building offers a welcoming driveway for convenience. The building features an indoor roof top pool with 360-degree views of the skyline, a fitness center and health club, sun deck and tenants multi-purpose lounge. In addition, the building has a bike room, and additional storage for a nominal fee.

There's also a parking garage with direct access to the building with pre-negotiated rates for tenants.

 

Current assessment of $1,072.94 in place until December 2021.
