Description

Stunning Penthouse on East End Avenue The penthouse at 25 East End Avenue is a special and unique home, with 360-degree, breathtaking views of the East River and the city. Romantic in feeling, light and airy throughout, this full-floor three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath apartment sprawls in all the right places, and is surrounded on all four sides by large, planted terraces accessible from every major room. The grand entertaining rooms—living room, study and dining room—span the entire east side of the apartment and open with French doors directly onto the north, south and east terraces. The 59-foot east terrace has unobstructed direct views of the East River and beyond, from the RFK/Triboro Bridge to the north and the 59 th Street Bridge to the south.

The large square corner living room has a wood-burning fireplace with a stone mantel (one of three in the apartment).
