Description

Perched high above the Museum of Modern Art in Museum Tower in the heart of Manhattan, surrounded by the most prestigious residences and cultural institutions, this brand newly renovated, never-lived-in 3-4 bedroom peninsula residence boasts breathtaking Central Park and City Skyline views. Two adjoining units have been seamlessly combined to form an expansive 3,452-square-foot residence with extraordinary scale and light in the most desirable line of this iconic building. Every detail has been beautifully considered to create the perfect canvas for you furniture and art.

Upon entering this impressive residence into the gracious entry gallery, you are drawn to the grand living/dining room perfectly scaled for contemporary entertaining.

It features oversized windows that frame inspiring northern and eastern skyline views towards Bergdorf Goodman, 432 Park Avenue and other Manhattan landmarks. Adjoining this is a formal dining room: a fourth bedroom can easily be restored or act as a study or library. A large sleek windowed kitchen provides an abundance of storage and counter space.

Wake up to Central Park from the north facing master suite that offers a windowed en suite marble master bathroom with an oversized soaking tub, a separate shower and a large walk-in closet.

Two additional large bedrooms have their own en-suite bathrooms with sizable closets. An optional 4th bedroom or study completes the picture. While the art collection below is spectacular, the many large walls within this apartment allow for your personal collection to be perfectly displayed.

The Museum Tower Condominium, designed by architect Cesar Pelli, is part of the prestigious MoMA complex and is located in the heart of Midtown, among Manhattan's finest shopping and restaurants, moments from Central Park.

The incomparable white glove building has an attentive staff of 52, and offers optional maid, laundry, and valet services. A spacious, well-appointed fitness center with a sauna is on the premises for a nominal fee, as well as media, conference and wine tasting/storage rooms, and a beautifully landscaped roof terrace overlooking the MoMA gardens. The Museum Tower is truly the epitome of luxurious, full-service living.
