A stunning oasis in the sky! This triple-mint duplex penthouse offers breathtaking panoramic views, a sprawling private terrace and spectacular living spaces in a classic Upper West Side condo half a block to Central Park.

Offering approximately 3,000 square feet of impeccably renovated interior living space, including three bedrooms and three full baths, this gorgeous home is perfectly designed to accommodate quiet private life and lively entertaining with equal skill. Enter on the upper level where a grand foyer leads to a bright and airy great room wrapped in oversized windows facing north, west and south. Filled with sunlight and open-sky views that seem to stretch on forever, this floor provides a generous footprint for gorgeous living and dining served by a state-of-the-art open kitchen. Chefs will delight in custom Italian cabinetry and a massive center island, plus two full-size Sub-Zero refrigerators and a wine refrigerator; a hooded Wolf six-burner range and oven; plus a Miele dishwasher and built-in Miele espresso system. Inside, oak hardwood paves the floors and 11-foot ceilings soar overhead, while outside, the massive 1,677-square-foot terrace acts as an outdoor living room surrounded by abundant landscaping, lighting, a sun shade plus access to water and electricity. An oversized entry closet and full bathroom complete this gracious level.

Lavish private quarters are tucked downstairs for optimal serenity. The luxurious master suite features a massive walk-in closet and a decadent en suite marble bath with radiant heat floors, a dual-sink vanity, and separate soaking tub and shower. The two secondary bedrooms are nicely sized with roomy closets and easy access to another large full bathroom with dual-sink vanity. This home's thoughtful design includes an array of designer touches and modern conveniences that make everyday living an absolute joy. Central heat and air, Lutron controls and electric window shades provide effortless control over temperature and lighting, while custom millwork, ample storage, and two sets of washers and dryers deliver convenience and style.

Designed in 1924 by revered architect George F. Pelham, The Olcott is a Neo-Renaissance building in terra cotta and brick. The premier white glove condo is set within the heart of the Upper West Side/Central Park West Historic District, surrounded by the breathtaking Dakota, San Remo and other architectural gems. Residents at The Olcott enjoy full-time doorman service, live-in superintendent, a beautifully restored lobby, a private dining room, playroom, fitness center, cold storage and bike room.

Located just off Central Park West, many of Central Park's most beloved attractions are mere minutes from your front door, including Strawberry Fields, the Bow Bridge and Bethesda Fountain. The surrounding Lincoln Square neighborhood is filled with fantastic dining and the city's best gourmet stores, plus the phenomenal entertainment venues the area is known for.
