This trophy penthouse boasts grand rooms, fantastic light and a spectacular, beautifully landscaped wrap-terrace with open city and river views east, west and south. The home offers 5 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, a library, roof level garden/sunroom and 2 Powder Rooms. At 5,100 interior and 2,850 exterior square feet, this stunning residence has it all, and at an extraordinarily low maintenance.

The private landing leads to an impressive central gallery that connects all major rooms and features a dramatic marble staircase with Palladian windows and 24' domed ceilings. The spacious, south facing living room is flooded with sun all day with, open city views and a wood burning fireplace adorned with a magnificent 18th century French mantle.

The formal dining room features the original coffered ceiling and a custom built, 700-bottle wine vault with temperature controls. The library has river views, and features its original wood paneling, pegged wood floors and decorative plaster ceiling.

The heart of the home is an open and sun-flooded chef's kitchen replete with top-of-the-line appliances, Glassos countertops, and custom cabinetry. There is a separate breakfast room with custom built-ins, additional storage and a Washer/Dryer.

The corner primary bedroom suite is an enormous private enclave. The bedroom faces south and east with stunning river views and flows seamlessly into the private study, which can be converted back to the fifth bedroom, a dressing room paneled in mahogany, and walls of closets that include 2 large walk-ins. The suite is completed with 2 full bathrooms appointed with marble, onyx and custom tiles.

There are 3 additional oversized bedrooms each with an en-suite bathroom, amazing views and incredible closets. A powder room completes the floor.

Ascend the grand staircase to the upper level, with 6 Palladian windows overlooking the gallery below. Reminiscent of a French Orangerie, the garden/sunroom is surrounded by windows and features a wood burning fireplace with an exquisite mantel. A second powder room is located on this level.

The crowning glory of this home is the stunning landscaped terrace that wraps the entire level and is accessible through elegant French doors. It is a truly rare entertaining space.
