This architecturally stunning, reimagined, 2 bedroom 2 bath penthouse with an expansive wrap around terrace atop an elegant pre war co-op in Turtle Bay is truly a rare find.
Featuring unobstructed views of the Chrysler Building, penthouse 1A2B is a modern masterpiece comprised of 1300 sqft of luxurious interior living space that’s been completely redesigned and in addition, there is a massive 1500 wraparound terrace equipped with planters, custom lighting, surround sound outdoor speakers, security cameras and irrigation for gardening. With just one other unit located on the floor, this penthouse is truly a private oasis just steps from all Midtown Manhattan has to offer.
The penthouse features state of the art smart technology and complete home automation. This includes integrated Somfy and Lutron control systems allowing remote control of all shades, lighting, retractable TV, indoor/outdoor sound system, thermostats and surveillance systems enabling one to create your desired home ambiance.

Not one detail was overlooked during this thoughtful and meticulous renovation. As you enter the home you are welcomed by distressed pine floors and 9.5 ft raw skim-coated concrete ceilings throughout giving the unit a sleek and modern downtown loft feel. The open and expansive living room facing south and west, is coupled with sliding glass walls that surround the apartment creating a stunning indoor/outdoor experience.

Just off the kitchen the dining room experience is enhanced by additional sliding glass walls amplifying the indoor/outdoor atmosphere which is complimented by mosaic built-ins and breathtaking views of the Chrysler Building.
Serenely secluded, the master suite comes outfitted with ample custom closet space that is coupled with shadow molding lending to the elegant modern touch. The ensuite spa-like master bath is distinguished by white Thasos marble, with a private skylight that has a retractable shade bringing natural sunlight into the space at the push of a button. To top it off there is a massive floor-to-ceiling glass shower with Hansgrohe fixtures.
Just off the living room you will find the second bedroom that comes with floor-to-ceiling sliding doors that allows for seamless reconfiguration of the space if desired.
