Hummingbirds, blue jays, and mockingbirds are frequent visitors on the terrace of this spectacular, sunny penthouse with glorious views. Situated atop one of Park Avenue's most prestigious white glove co-operatives, this fabulous prewar residence presents the opportunity to own one of the most exciting apartments in New York City. A dedicated elevator landing leads to a magnificent entrance gallery with a 24' domed ceiling above a sweeping marble staircase surrounded by windows. All major rooms flow off this gallery. The baronial, south facing, living room has open city views, and a wood burning fireplace with an 18th century French limestone mantel. The formal dining room with a wall of windows retains its original coffered ceiling, affords an elegant space for formal entertaining and houses a custom 700 bottle wine cellar.

A huge, gourmet, chef's kitchen is equipped with top-of-the-line appliances and custom cabinetry. Adjoining the kitchen is a breakfast room with custom built-ins, stone floors and incredible storage space.
