Sensational Fifth Avenue Penthouse with incredible wrap-around terrace and commanding views of Central Park and the Manhattan skyline. Stretching the length of the building with over 85 feet of frontage along the park, this rarely available penthouse at the top of Carnegie Hill offers a plethora of outdoor spaces to enjoy - including north, south, and west terraces, as well as a quiet and protected inner courtyard. The elevator opens directly into the apartment, where a gracious entry foyer leads to the magnificent great room - featuring 10 foot ceilings, oversized casement windows, a wood-burning fireplace, and stunning herringbone floors. Spanning nearly 40 feet, it's an impressive space for entertaining - combining the living, family and dining rooms into an airy, open space with amazing light - and two floor-to-ceiling glass doors provide access to the terrace and courtyard. The renovated kitchen includes top of the line appliances, granite countertops, and a huge pantry. A fabulous window over the sink provides endless northern views above the city, and yet another glass door opens to a large, planted back terrace with East Side views. The bedroom wing comprises the entire south side of the penthouse, and is connected by a beautiful windowed hallway that overlooks the inner-courtyard. The expansive principal bedroom suite is ideally situated at the corner, with spectacular southwest views of the reservior, fountain, and the mid-town skyline. The renovated ensuite bathroom has a huge picture window, and connects to a spacious walk-in closet. There are two additional bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a library/home office, which have access to a lovely, windowed, hall bath with glass shower. The apartment is fully upgraded with new wiring, recessed lighting, a Miele washer/dryer, and best of all, central air-conditioning throughout! 1170 Fifth Avenue is a desirable white-glove pre-war co-op with an exceptional staff, fitness room, bike room, central laundry, and private storage transfers with the apartment. Pets welcome.
