A tastefully renovated five-bedroom duplex penthouse with an expansive terrace affording panoramic river views and an abundance of natural light.
From your semi-private landing you enter the apartment to a gracious foyer. Off the foyer you will immediately notice the formal dining room, elegantly framed by pocket doors. The expansive east facing living room has a WBFP and is ablaze with light while offering exquisite direct river views. The corner study, with en-suite bath, is tucked away off the living room offering an owner the flexibility to create an additional (fifth) bedroom or guest suite. The renovated eat-in-kitchen is cheerful and bright with two oversized windows and has a large central island with seating for 3. It has top of the line appliances and a hood that vents to the outside. The adjacent butler's pantry is replete with storage and perfectly complements the kitchen.
Two bedrooms, each with ample closet space, a shared windowed bath, and vented W/D complete this level. Ascending the stairs is a large landing with dry bar that leads to an expansive wrap around terrace, ideal for entertaining. The corner master suite, with windowed en-suite bath, has a wall of storage and French doors leading to the terrace. The fourth bedroom and windowed hall bath are also found on this level as well as a second entrance to the apartment offering the opportunity to access either floor directly from the elevator.
439 East 51st Street (Beekman Mansion) is a luxurious pied-a-terre and pet friendly pre-war cooperative with 24 hour doorman, live-in super, storage and laundry rooms.

This is an excellent value in a wonderful and prestigious location.
