BRING YOUR ARCHITECT/DESIGNER/CONTRACTOR!
Magical Park Avenue Penthouse, A Dreamy Indoor/Outdoor Sanctuary.

Penthouse E at 555 Park Avenue is a one-of-a-kind jewel perched at the top of the building, featuring 2 incredibly large and private terraces. Soaked with light, the north terrace is an unheard of 83-ft in length with high walls for a rare sense of privacy, perfect for dining alfresco, entertaining or creating a lush garden. The south roof terrace has stunning city views and also drenched in light.

This loft-like 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home is an exciting opportunity to create a dream indoor/outdoor living sanctuary.

The current floorpan features 1-bedroom, a studio bedroom (as the second bedroom), 2-bathrooms. Both bedrooms have private closets, full en-suite bathrooms, and terrace access. An open library/lounge area sits next to the kitchen and leads out onto a second terrace.

There are high ceilings with multiple skylights throughout, full length windows and french glass doors, northern and southern exposure, and a combined 1,125 sq. ft. of private terrace space.

555 Park Avenue was designed by George and Edward Blum, originally built in 1914 and converted to a co-op 1946. This highly desired building includes a 24 hour doorman, concierge, resident superintendent, a fitness room, and a large dedicated storage bin. 50% financing is allowed, 2% flip tax paid by the purchaser.

There are no summer work rules. *This is a Nest Seekers Exclusive
