This impeccably renovated & fully redesigned 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom duplex Gramercy penthouse features a stunning 450 square foot landscaped private terrace that needs to be seen to be believed. The large dining area is the center of the first floor of this beautiful home, showcasing wide plank hardwood floors, a wood burning fireplace with a striking floor-to-ceiling stone mantle, and a living area that opens out onto the south-facing balcony. The open plan chef's kitchen features a Liebherr fridge, Blue Star gas range (vented to outside), Miele dishwasher, and hidden under counter Asko washer and vented dryer. The large second bedroom and smartly designed full bath complete this level. Additional features include zoned central air conditioning, new windows and doors throughout, Eurocave 194 bottle wine fridge, a tremendous utility closet, and Sonos sound system with speakers & control panels in every room.

From the bed your vista is out to the fully landscaped, south-facing 24' x 18' terrace. Walk out the large double doors and enter your own very private oasis, framed by abundant sky and NYC architecture. Ipe wood decking, an outdoor kitchen with sink & refrigerator, mature-growth irrigated landscaping, and both dining & lounge furniture make this zen outdoor space a treat for the body & mind.
