Penthouse East is a stately and comfortable six-room penthouse perched atop a fine white-glove, co-op at 17 East 89th Street with glorious south and east terraces providing open views of Central Park, the reservoir, and the city. Enter the apartment from a private elevator landing that leads into a large foyer and gallery. A grand living room with a wood-burning fireplace and original moldings includes direct access to the east terrace and leads into a den (original second bedroom). The gracious and sunny corner master bedroom suite opens to the terrace and provides open city views, and is complimented by an en-suite bath and walk-in closet. Rich mahogany-paneled walls and double French doors leading to the south terrace make the handsome library (original formal dining room) the perfect spot for quiet evening dinners at home or lively entertaining. Beautiful original oak parquet floors and plaster moldings are found throughout the magnificent apartment. The kitchen with top of the line appliances (Sub-Zero, DCS, Miele) includes a pantry, and has direct access to the north terrace. This wonderful layout features 9+ foot ceilings, central HVAC, and is completed by a staff room/bedroom/home office with a full bathroom. Access the over 1,000 square feet of fabulous, private wrap terraces (with motorized awnings) from almost every room, and take in the views from this iconic Upper East Side location.
17 East 89th Street is a fine and elegant cooperative with impeccable staff and service. The building permits pets, has a gym, has no summer work rules, and will consider pied-a-terre applicants on a case-by-case basis. Penthouse East transfers with a large storage unit in the basement. This is New York penthouse living at its very best!
