Description

Sitting on top of Madison Avenue's finest 1916 building, built by Arthur Loonis Harmon (the same architect who designed the Empire State building), is a stunning PENTHOUSE with spectacular terraces and New York City's Midtown at your feet. It is a TRUE PENTHOUSE in that this residence sits on top of the building proper and is accessed through a private entrance at rooftop level. This exquisitely designed residence is in perfect move-in condition. No work is needed at all.

Light floods through ALL 4 EXPOSURES – North, South, East and West. The thoughtful layout combines grand-scale customed loft-living with open exposures for a truly comfortable urban lifestyle. A sense of intimacy and privacy is achieved from its perch atop this prewar cooperative.

Each room is perfectly proportioned with every design and modern convenience considered and included. The secluded entry foyer leads you to an expansive open windowed kitchen with unobstructed views of the Empire State Building. The kitchen boasts statuary marble countertops and backsplash with gold vein, custom cabinetry from the Italian kitchen manufacturer Minimal, Gaggenau appliances and a beautifully installed wooden countertop custom-designed by Nakashima perfect as a showpiece for entertaining.

Flanking west from the kitchen is a dramatic living room with a wall of windows opening onto a rather large irrigated landscaped and breathtaking terrace with seating that showcases exciting views of Midtown. The 3 bedrooms are divinely appointed with Poliform cabinets, LED lights, and Clie workstations/beds. The serene spa-like bathrooms are equipped with Duravit toilet, Boffi sinks, and Robern medicine cabinets.

This tastefully appointed residence features Philip Stark lighting, CitiQuiet soundproof windows in the bedrooms and kitchen, Fujitsu split air conditioning, Giordano Listone hand-scraped ebonized wooden floor, Miele Touchtonic washer and dryer, and tons of storage. This is a very rare opportunity to acquire a true penthouse and very difficult to find anywhere in the city. It is a true house combining city and country living at its best. This full service cooperative offers 24 hour door staff, live-in resident manager, and shared roof deck for building residents.

The building allows co-purchasing and pied-a-terre ownership. No dogs but cats are more than welcome.
