244 Madison Avenue #PHL In Midtown New York. A unique gem awaits the discerning buyer on the Penthouse level of full service Murray Hill Plaza. This distinctive apartment, unlike any other you will find at this highly desirable and centrally located midtown address, is perched on the top corner of the building and completely flooded with open sky and light from two directions. The loft space means Penthouse L features dramatic twelve-foot-high ceilings and eight-foot-high windows on double exposures, facing east and south, setting it apart from other units that have only single window exposure. Penthouse L's impeccable interiors have been meticulously renovated from the lustrously painted walls to the refinished hardwood floors, and the modern kitchen styled with custom wood cabinetry, soft close drawers, granite countertops and backsplash, as well as new appliances. The layout is just as distinctive with a staggered, step wall feature that separates the living room and the bedroom, allowing maximum sunlight to enter the home and perfect viewing of unblocked and open cityscapes through the large picture windows. The smart floor plan affords a gracious flow for living/dining/entertaining and provides plenty of space for a highly workable home office if desired. The master bedroom aerie has spectacular corner window views with vistas that stretch down Madison Avenue, extend over to Fifth Avenue, the Empire State Building, and the gold tipped skyline of other Manhattan landmarks, as well as east to a daily East River sunrise. Penthouse L also overlooks The Morgan Library and Museum, a major cultural exhibition venue for fine art, literature, concerts, and film. The Morgan is one of New York's most iconic and historic landmarks. The sleek marble full bath is finely designed, with a glass shower enclosure and modern fixtures throughout. Extensive closets include a generous walk-in, in addition to a sizable storage space above the bedroom closet and bathroom. Situated conveniently between 37th and 38th Streets on Madison Avenue, Murray Hill Plaza is a 180-unit co-op building that stands 17 stories tall in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, central to the major subway and railway stations (Penn and Grand Central nearby). The address is surrounded by museums, restaurants, parks and shopping and it's just a 15-minute walk to the Theater District. The architect for the Empire State Building designed Murray Hill Plaza. Other amenities include 24/7 doorman service, a live-in building manager, full maintenance staff, a modern laundry room (though in-unit washer dryers are allowed), and a beautifully landscaped and furnished rooftop garden that looks out on a truly breathtaking city skyline. Pied-a-terres, purchasing for children and subletting after two years of ownership are allowed.
