Description

Regal and inspiring, one of the finest homes in all of Midtown East, Penthouse 37E/38E is a trophy duplex with unrivaled and unobstructed views of the East River, the U.N., and the Manhattan skyline. Facing east and south, every single room in this spacious residence has jaw dropping and inspiring views and is bathed in light from sunrise to sunset.

37th Floor: A gracious entry foyer greets you with beautiful hardwood floors, and venetian plaster walls.

The 32’ long corner living room features multiple seating areas looking out through two walls of windows. A centered wood-burning fireplace anchors the room.

Thoughtful and functional details abound including electric shades, recessed lighting, surround sound, and built-in bookshelves. The large dining room faces south directly over the UN and comfortably features seating for 12. Off the living room is a media room with built-in bookcases, an a/v closet, and a wet bar.

The kitchen features a built-in banquette, soapstone countertops, and high-end appliances including a 6-burner Wolf range with double oven that vents out, Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, and a Bosch dishwasher. Off of the kitchen is a bedroom with an en-suite bath with Kohler and Toto fixtures. Completing the first floor is a purposeful laundry room with side-by-side vented washer/dryer, ample storage and a giant closet/mudroom.

38th Floor: Leading you to the second floor is a gorgeous sculpted walnut staircase lined with custom leather panels.

The sprawling Master Suite features a spacious bedroom, a separate dressing room with custom closets-- the size of most bedrooms--as well as the 4-piece Master Bath, and an additional walk-in closet and powder room. The Master Bath features stone counters and tilework, waterworks fixtures, a giant stone shower, and a private water closet. Adjacent to the Master Suite is another large bedroom currently used as an office with a wet bar and a wall of closets and built ins.

Down the hall is another bedroom which features an en-suite bath, multiple closets and wooden built-in desk. Completing the second floor is a full cedar closet.

Currently configured as a 3 bed, 3 bath, 2 half-bath residence, the flexible and ideal floor plan could accommodate 5 or even 6 bedrooms if desired. The private elevator shaft which extends between the floors is currently being used for additional storage space.

Built in 1966, 870 UN Plaza is a full-service co-op with the longest private driveway in New York and was one of the first Steel and Glass apartment towers built.

It embodies a discrete form of mid-century modern minimalism, style and grace. Throughout its lifespan, the building has been a home and continues to be home to countless key figures in American history including Truman Capote, Johnny Carson, Yul Brynner, and Walter Cronkite. Amenities include a full service gym featuring pilates and a massage room, library, a roof deck and Club 39: a lounge with a kitchen and bar as well as a recreation room with billiards, table tennis and a golf simulator.

On-site parking, storage and bike storage are also available.

Maintenance includes Fixed Utilities, Fixed Window Washing as well as Bulk Cable. There is a Flip Tax of 3% paid by the Purchaser. Showings by appointment only.
