This generously sized three bedroom, three and a half bathroom pre-war triplex offers the space and quiet privacy of luxurious townhouse living combined with the security of a full service building and the stunning views found only in an East End Avenue penthouse. With just shy of 10 foot high ceilings, a private terrace, and open blue sky views from every bedroom this sun flooded penthouse apartment on the river has space for all of your needs.
A marble-tiled foyer greets you upon entering this townhouse in the sky. The first of two bedrooms located on the primary floor is currently configured as a sun drenched library outfitted with custom built-ins and millwork as well a south-facing picture window. Just adjacent to the library is the second bedroom with ensuite bathroom. A separate full marble bathroom and fully equipped laundry room, complete with full size washer, dryer, and sink, complete the first floor.
The second floor of this vast triplex is an entertainer's paradise, home to the generously sized eat-in kitchen appointed with paneled SubZero refrigerator, Viking range, a second Thermador wall oven, and a dishwasher. A skylight and recessed lighting brightens this masterful kitchen. The spacious dining room is situated between the eat-in kitchen and sunken living room. With enough space for a large formal dining table, accompanying china cabinet and sideboard, this space is also handsomely designed with recessed lighting and coffered ceilings. Well-maintained solid hardwood flooring and central air is found throughout the apartment. The sun-flooded sunken living room has a wall of five oversized south facing picture windows, granting stunning East River and open city views while lending an open and airy feel to this wondrous entertaining space. A wood-burning stone mantel fireplace and 16 foot wide skylight spanning the length of the windows complement the space, making it truly exceptional.
A beautifully configured primary suite with southern exposure is nestled at the pinnacle of this gracious triplex, gracefully appointed with three climate controlled walk-in closets and a marble bathroom complete with soaking tub, separate stall shower and double vanity as well as direct access to a 200 square foot private terrace overlooking the East River.
