There are five things on everyone's dream NYC apartment list: light, iconic views, private outdoor space, upgraded finishes and, why not, a wood-burning fireplace. This duplex penthouse has them all.
Upgrade your surroundings with space and style in this exquisitely designed, triple-mint corner duplex penthouse. Featuring over 2,000 square feet of living space plus a massive private roof terrace, each level commands panoramic skyline views of the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building and Central Park. This gorgeous home truly has everything one could ask for.
As you enter the foyer of the apartment, you pass an architectural staircase leading downstairs to the bedroom level and upstairs to your private roof deck. Across the hall is a stylish powder room embellished with Cowan and Tout wallpaper, and down the hall is the designer kitchen, anchored by an impressively large island in slate gray Caesarstone and framed by a stunning picture window that floods the room in morning light.
The upgraded kitchen was designed with the serious cook in mind: an open layout, Sub-Zero refrigerator and built-in double Sub-Zero wine fridges; Gaggenau oven, five-burner gas Miele cooktop, separate Miele convection oven/microwave, dishwasher and stacked washer/dryer. The final touch? A built-in Miele/Nespresso coffee maker.
Gorgeous Italian cabinets by Aster Cucine accentuate the natural wood, tile and stone, and along the way every imaginable enhancement was made. Incredible hand-carved Black Walnut flooring was laid throughout this level leading you into the huge L-shaped living and dining room with 10.5-foot ceilings, making this a space that invites entertaining.
The sheer scale of this living space allows for several seating areas, and includes a gallery wall and a wood-burning fireplace. Normally a fireplace is the central focal point of any room, but here the incredible natural light and unobstructed views from the massive South-and East-facing windows are what draws the eye. Press a button to open the floor-to-ceiling custom window treatments and reveal NYC in all its glory. At night, the twinkling view of the city is breathtaking.
Additional features in the living space include a media cabinet with built-in speakers and subwoofer. The entire apartment is fully wired allowing for a seamless media integration with SONOS, etc. And for soundproofing, all the exterior walls are finished with a double layer of wallboard to ensure complete quiet.
The lower level offers a peaceful oasis that seems a world away. With cool tones, dark woods and subdued lighting, this floor has a spa-like feel, very serene and relaxing. The second bedroom is large and bright with open views facing South to Central Park and Midtown. There is a full guest bathroom with glossy Ann Sacks tile that perfectly accents the honed travertine floors in Ocean Blue. Fixtures by Grohe, LaCava, Toto and Geberit & Zuma round out this tasteful space.
The huge Master Suite occupies the lower Southeast corner, with a custom walk-in closet and two giant windows bathing the room in light all day long and showing off those iconic NYC views. Simply press a button to open the blackout blinds and let the morning sun beam in.
Unquestionably the best room in the house to watch the sunrise is the sumptuous master bath which faces due East, with dual vanities bookending the large picture window. A steam shower and white Carrara marble whirlpool tub create an at-home spa experience. This huge bathroom, along with the entire apartment, is also wired for sound and custom programmable lighting as part of the smart home features of this home.
And finally, what's a penthouse without a private roof deck? Here your 850 square-foot outdoor space allows you an unobstructed sunrise-to-sunset view with plenty of space for al fresco dining, lounging, sunbathing or a quiet cocktail at the end of the day with the city at your feet.
The Lenox is a full-service luxury condominium made up of only 2 and 3-bedroom apartments and with a 24-hour doorman, fitness center and parking. Best of all, there is a 421-A tax abatement in place until 2033, so monthlies here are extremely low.
The Lenox is located just a few blocks from Harlem's best shopping and dining, including Whole Foods, Red Rooster, Sylvia's, Corner Social and more. Express subways are a short walk to 125th Street
