High above the city on the top two floors of the legendary Plaza, this stunning condominium duplex penthouse is at once exciting and unique, offering a 40’ terrace with thrilling views of Manhattan stretching east, north and south. The penthouse residence, on the 20th and 21st floors, is in excellent condition and has 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, 2 powder rooms, and two wood burning fireplaces. An unusual slanted sky light running the entire width of the main floor of the Penthouse illuminates the great room (living room/dining room) with beautiful east light, as well as the main floor secondary primary bedroom suite. The large great room is an enchanting room with wood burning fireplace, herringbone floor, and views of the tops of the Pierre Hotel and the Sherry Netherland. The secondary primary bedroom also has glorious views, a large en-suite 5 fixture bath, and dressing area surrounded by a fitted walk-in closet. The kitchen is off the great room and has top of the line appliances including a Viking stove, Viking refrigerator/freezer, Miele dishwasher, and wine refrigerator.

The luxurious primary bedroom suite is an oasis of calm, with wood burning fireplace, windows overlooking the terrace, double doors to the terrace, and views of Manhattan. Adjacent is a luxurious windowed dressing room with fitted closets, and huge en-suite windowed 5 fixture marble bath with double vanity sinks, soaking tub, separate walk-in shower, and water closet. Across the landing, which opens to the terrace, is the third bedroom, also opening to the terrace, and with en-suite windowed bath. The 40’ terrace, situated between two huge terrets crowned with beautiful intricate wrought iron grill work synonymous with images of the Plaza, exhibits the most extraordinary views of the city from a rare and privileged vantage point. The penthouse has meticulous details throughout including Plaza doorknobs, Kohler & Lefroy bath fittings, and a Sonos sound system. The Plaza, an Historic National Landmark, is one of the most iconic buildings in Manhattan and is located across from Central Park at the nexus of the world on the corner of Fifth Avenue and Central Park South.
