High above the Hudson River, at the point where it widens toward New York Harbor, this glamorous penthouse is a true home. Surrounded on three sides with a 10 foot wide terrace, gorgeously planted, the views are nothing short of spectacular. Floor to ceiling windows, and the ability to step out onto the terrace from nearly every room make this lovely, comfortable apartment a constant pleasure.
What makes this Penthouse so special is the brilliant combination of a townhouse sensibility and a loft-like openness, all on one floor. One enters directly from the secured elevator into the private vestibule, beyond which a sky lit gallery welcomes you into the living and dining rooms, all surrounded by walls of triple glazed windows. A modern wood burning fireplace sets a relaxed elegant mood. Brazilian walnut plank floors grace the rooms throughout. The public areas have been carefully designed to emphasize flexibility, and pocket doors easily create private intimate rooms, or luxurious and gracious entertaining spaces
The chic Varenna kitchen is superbly outfitted, with double wide Sub-Zero refrigerator, two Miele ovens and 6 burner cooktop, Bosch dishwasher, and a gorgeous dark butcher block island, with ample cooking and prep space. Beyond is a private den or office, with skyline views both East and South.
The large Master suite faces both West and North, to witness the boats as they go up and down the water. There are two separate baths in the suite, and two separate dressing areas, as well as a unique sitting area for someone very lucky.
The second bedroom has a prime spot on the river, and en-suite bath, while the third and fourth bedrooms face the skyline to the East, and they share a bath.
