This is perhaps the most romantic river penthouse on the Upper East Side, once owned and occupied by Irving Berlin. It's a sprawling three plus a library/four bedroom duplex in mint condition with floor-to–ceiling glass doors highlighting the breathtaking terraces and views of the East River and way beyond. Huge terraces surround the entertaining floor providing superb indoor/outdoor living and entertaining. An enormous living room with a wood burning fireplace (all with glorious river views) leads to an open formal dining room. There’s a large, sunny chef’s kitchen with a dining area under a glass conservatory and terrace access from each room. A staff room (now used for storage) and a renovated full bath complete the first level.
On the bedroom level, the dreamy primary suite with a wall of windows showcasing spectacular river views, has a spacious bedroom area, a partially separated sitting room with a gas fireplace and a fully equipped breakfast bar. The over-sized marble primary bath is fully renovated with room to spare. There’s an adjacent library/sitting room and two large additional bedrooms, each with private renovated baths.
There is central AC throughout, high ceilings, enormous closets, and art deco charm galore. An ample storage bin transfers with the apartment.
