Terraced penthouse perfection in Midtown.
Welcome home to this true one bedroom penthouse with a coveted wraparound terrace featuring ample light, an inviting layout, a recent renovation, and a prime Manhattan location.
Enter the home to be immediately greeted by the large, 23-foot long living/dining space allowing for flexible and open modern living. You are surrounded on all sides by the wraparound terrace, allowing for pleasant views of your planters, gardens, and the city beyond. The kitchen, renovated with custom cabinetry, granite countertops, and GE stainless steel appliances, is fit for a chef.
The master bedroom is cleverly outfitted with a Murphy bed for space optimization, but could easily be replaced with a king-sized bed, or simply use the bed in place. The bathroom, which has been smartly re-designed with pocket doors, allows it to either be two bathrooms (one powder room for guests, and one bathroom with sink and shower), or open it up to be a full master bathroom with two sinks.
The piece-de-resistance is the wraparound terrace, which is large enough to accommodate a barbecue, ample furniture, and gardens. City views complement the light-filled interiors.
240 East 55th Street is a cooperative built in 1959 with a part-time doorman, common laundry and bike storage, and a live-in super. Washer/dryers are allowed with board approval. The building allows cats (sorry, no dogs), subletting after one year of ownership, and pied-a-terres, guarantors, go-purchasing, gifts, and guarantors, all on a case-by-case basis. *Please note: select photographs are virtually staged and meant to provide alternative vision of the penthouse.
