Grand in scale and elegant, this prewar 10-room duplex penthouse, with a delightful wrap terrace and open views, is a rare offering in a top Park Avenue cooperative. From the semi-private vestibule one enters the 27 foot long gallery that leads to the living room featuring a wood burning fireplace with classic mantle and a wall of large south-facing windows with sunny open city views. The handsome wood paneled library adjacent to the living room also faces south receiving plenty of natural light. The comfortable library has a cleverly camouflaged windowed powder room. On the north side of the gallery...one enters the great room, which includes a dining room that easily accommodates large gatherings and a cozy den that opens into the breakfast room and chef's kitchen. The gourmet kitchen with a large island, a Garland stove, and a plethora of storage, boasts open northern views. There are two windowed staff rooms and a staff bathroom located off the kitchen. Currently, one staff room is a well-appointed laundry area with a vented dryer and wine storage. The second staff room with ensuite bathroom serves as a home office. The attractive curved staircase takes one to the serene bedroom floor with all bedrooms facing out to the wrap terrace. The spacious corner primary bedroom, surrounded by open southern and eastern views and the greenery from the private terrace, is a truly beautiful space. It has an attractively renovated ensuite bath and exceptional closet space. The second and third bedrooms have ensuite baths and lovely views of the planted terrace and city beyond. The L-shaped terrace with open southern and eastern views can be accessed from both the primary and third bedrooms. The terrace accommodates a dining table, seating area, and multiple planters. There is an automated watering system, electricity, and the entire garden has been thoughtfully planted by a professional gardener. The apartment is cooled by central air conditioning. This home trades with a windowed staff room on the first floor and the new owner will continue to have use of a large storage cage in the cellar.
