Little wonder this Penthouse home has never been offered before, this being the first resale since the brownstone was converted into floor-through condominiums in 1996. The conversion and restoration by a European developer was realized with a sensitivity to preserving the brownstone's 1890's classic ornamentation and material. This is immediately apparent in the building's facade and upon entering the foyer. From the glass transverses to the elaborate woodwork, bannisters and wainscoting, all the common areas are in pristine condition with original oak detail beautifully preserved.
The sun-filled Penthouse duplex faces North and South with a 24 x 18.4 living room and high, nearly 11' ceilings, skylight and wood-burning fireplace. In total there are three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, two wood-burning fireplaces and three skylights. On the main floor of the duplex, the master (also with wood-burning fireplace) and the second bedroom are separated from the public rooms by a long corridor offering seclusion and a comfortable floor plan for entertaining. The wide square kitchen has light pouring in from a large skylight; the kitchen can also be opened to the living room to easily create an open plan kitchen and counter. The second floor consists of an airy third bedroom or office/guest room and a delightful full bath with a Mediterranean flair. The private roof, which was re-decked this summer, is a haven of serenity with unobstructed sunlight, open sky and roof top views. An easy ascent, the main floor is arrived at by only three flights of stairs after entering from the stoop level. There is video-intercom, central air, washer/dryer, apartment's own furnace and hot water heater and a storage cage in the basement.
Nestled on West 75th Street, this home is also remarkably quiet whilst being around the corner from all the neighborhood services one could hope for, including the Natural History Museum and the year-round Sunday Columbus Avenue Farmer's Market.
Condominium by-laws allow for pied-a-terre ownership, pets, LLC's, Trust and foreign purchases.
Monthly carrying charges, including real estate taxes are remarkably low, approximately $1.00 a square foot. Available for in-person appointments. This rare first offering won't last!
