This exceptional 14 room prewar penthouse duplex with spectacular landscaped terraces is situated high atop one of Manhattan's finest prewar cooperatives. The building is perfectly located on East 64th Street, on one of the most beautiful tree-lined blocks in the Upper East Side Historic District.
A private elevator landing opens onto an impressive south-facing center gallery bathed in natural light throughout the day. The adjacent spectacular and massive 27 x 23 living room with a wood-burning fireplace has three exposures, soaring ceilings, and commands wonderful open views through floor-to-ceiling Palladian windows. Stunning landscaped terraces surround the living room on all three sides, and views as far as Central Park can be seen in the distance.

The dining room also commands impressive views through four sets of floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto more beautifully landscaped terraces. Views as far south as the Chrysler Building can be seen in the distance. Adjacent to the dining room is a sprawling 31 x 12 eat-in-kitchen with a separate breakfast room. The kitchen and breakfast room have wonderful light and openness to both the east and west. A bright and sunny staff room with a full-sized bath completes this level of the penthouse.

The bedroom level captures all four exposures, and each and every room enjoys wonderful sunlight throughout the day. The primary bedroom suite occupies the front south corner, and includes an enormous renovated bathroom, dressing room and walk-in-closet.
