Elegant and Iconic 5 Bedroom Duplex Penthouse on the River
Situated on the 37th and 38th floor of the historically significant 870 UN Plaza is this magnificent duplex with views of the city and breathtaking vistas of the East River. With sunny southern and western exposures, this home is the perfect example of grand entertaining and stylish living with 5 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms and a powder room. The moment you enter the home you are greeted by the grand gallery. The floor plan is reminiscent of the great Park Avenue buildings with a formal dining room and a 32-foot corner living room with a wood-burning fireplace. The one caveat is that this floor plan has iconic panoramic views from every room. Just off of the living room is a library or fifth bedroom with an en suite bath and city views. The kitchen, that would be the envy of any home or professional chef, includes high-end appliances; two Sub-Zero refrigerators drawers, two Sub-Zero freezer drawers, four Fisher PayKel dishwashers, a six burner stove top with a Viking exhaust, Dacor warming drawer and microwave and two commercial grade Viking ovens. The Butler's pantry features a Sub-Zero wine cooler and refrigerator. A powder room completes this floor.
As you ascend the elegant spiral staircase from the foyer you reach the upper level which features a stunning primary bedroom with the same vistas and panoramic views as the living room below and a stunning 27 feet in length. A walk-in closet and an en suite marble bath features an oversize stall shower. Three additional bedrooms each with baths en suite and walk in closets are also on this floor. A walk-in Cedar closet, a laundry room, an interior elevator and service stairway to the kitchen, complete this floor. With exquisite ceiling heights, beautifully updated decor, central a/c and unrivaled river and city views this home awaits you. A private Storage Room is included.
