About the unit:
Penthouse AB consists of 2 combined units which were later built in 1986 on top of an original prewar building. Exquisitely designed, this 1,500 square foot 2 bedrooms 2.5 bathroom condo duplex has 2 private outdoor spaces with city views providing large living and dining space with an open kitchen and in-unit new Electrolux Washer & Dryer purchased in October 2019. The living space is on the lower floor with a private balcony outside and the 2 bedrooms are on the upper floor. Upon entering this magnificent penthouse, on the left, you will find a powder room with a glass sink with Lalique crystal handles. The big living space has Venetian plaster finished walls and mahogany hardwood floors throughout, with a space for a home office and dining table with abundant light. The open kitchen has high-end appliances and can vent out to the roof, including custom Mahogany cabinetry, wood-paneled Subzero refrigerator, Thermador stove and gas cooktop, Bosch dishwasher, and Breville microwave.
The gorgeous mahogany spiral stairs will take you to the renovated 2 bedrooms upstairs. Onyx sconces in the master bedroom make it extremely comfortable for sleep. The Master bedroom features a large walk-in closet with built-in shelves and drawers. The master bath features a copper sink and marble floor. There is a soundproof steel door that opens between the 2 bedrooms and can separate the smaller bedroom into a studio apartment with its own entrance. This smaller bedroom alone can bring in $35,000 a year rental income. This duplex home has hard-wired speakers throughout the apartment, in each room, and on the rooftop.
On the very top is this apartment's private large rooftop terrace with beautiful city views. The seller can include the outdoor furniture as well and 5 self-standing storage bins on the rooftop. There is the ability to connect the roof terrace to the spiral staircase in the apartment (need an architect to draft and build). This hidden gem can be the best investment property in Midtown Manhattan as well as a primary residence.
