Property Sub TypeDuplex
This truly one-of-a-kind residence offers a rare opportunity to have it all–views, outdoor space, great open layout, spacious rooms, and the perfect location! Spanning 4800 square feet over two levels, this duplex home with three balconies was originally four different units that have been combined to create a lavish, open entertaining space that enjoys beatific Central Park and full City views: stretching north from Central Park South all the way to the George Washington Bridge, plus an equally splendid south and west facing vista that includes some of NYC's most iconic buildings such as the Chrysler Building, the GM building, the Sherry Netherland and more.
The main entrance vestibule opens to a large foyer that leads to the double-width living room with balcony all... blessed with captivating Park and City views. The wood-paneled western side of the salon continues to the wet bar with a sitting area.
The entertaining space's open layout continues south to the large serving kitchen with peninsula, built specifically for grand dining and catered affairs. The more messy work of cooking and preparations are done in the smaller windowed kitchen located further rear near the family room. The dining salon is enormous, large enough to hold a small wedding banquet! Almost all the wood panels in the entertaining space are either hidden cabinets, closets with shelves or cedar walk-in closets for storage of household appliances and linens.
Further in is the library/office, which also functions as a mini card/game room. Pocket doors separate this from the guest bedroom. This section of the apartment also has two full baths.
As we proceed to the rear of the upper level, we find a second (rear) entrance, a breakfast nook, a den/family/recreation room, and the working kitchen.
The stairs off the family room lead to a large gallery below. A third entrance to the apartment is located here. It's super useful when you want to take a short cut straight to your bedrooms. "Upside down living," where the bedrooms are located below the main entertaining and living spaces, could feel awkward. But here, it's a genius solution! With no neighbors living above you, it allows you to ensure bedrooms are quiet. The south-facing double-width primary bedroom is enormous and sun-flooded. En-suite, a primary bath plus a spacious walk-in closet. Immediately next door are two more secondary bedrooms and two full mosaic baths. The apartment has central air conditioning. It is also being sold with two storage spaces.
118 East 60th Street is a full-service building with a 24-hour doorman and concierge, a central laundry room, a package room, a common roof deck with Central Park and City views, a circular driveway (separate garage next door), and bike storage. It is a couple of blocks from Central Park. Shopping is a breeze with Bloomingdale's literally right around the corner, while Bergdorf Goodman, Tiffany's and the world's best lifestyle brands on Fifth and Madison avenues are within very close proximity. Top restaurants also abound in the neighborhood: Harry Cipriani, Daniel, Avra on Madison, The East Pole, Lavo, Le Bilboquet, Serafina, etc. are among those in the immediate vicinity.
