Nothing on the market compares to PENTHOUSE AB at 885 Park Avenue, a rare opportunity to combine these adjacent penthouses to create a full penthouse floor with ~ 5,600 SF of interior space and ~3200 SF of terraces in one of the UES’s finest pre-war cooperatives. Countless options exist to create a 5-7 bedroom, six to seven bath home with space for every need.
In a word, PENTHOUSE A is spectacular. With a West and South-facing wrap terrace, it is sun-flooded with glorious views of Midtown Manhattan, the iconic Carlyle Hotel, the East River and a peek of Central Park. The attended elevator opens to ~ 61 linear feet of floor-to-ceiling windows and terrace doors. The open plan presents a corner dining room, living room with multiple seating areas, hand-glazed metallic-coved 10-foot ceilings and onyx lineal fireplace hearth with book-matched anigre mantle. Retractable pocket doors open to the contemporary white Siematic kitchen with seating at the breakfast bar plus in-kitchen dining next to one of the several terraces. Kitchen amenities include a suite of Miele appliances, three ovens (including a Le Cornue), built-in coffee maker, ice-maker, wine fridge, Blenheim custom glass oval skylight and extraordinary storage.The en suite south-facing master has an enormous walk-in-closet, office area and double-windowed master bath with walk-in shower, Lalique handles, private water closet and extraordinary mosaic tiling. There is a study/guest room, media room, laundry room, two additional baths and a powder room. Literally no expense was spared; with too many features to detail, here are just a few: multi-zone central HVAC, rift cut 6” oak floors in a herringbone pattern with brass inlay, high gloss lacquer trim and doors, large format imported Marmara polished stone in the entry gallery and kitchen, custom Nanz door hardware, Lutron lighting and remote blinds, in-wall speakers with multiple Sonos zones and so much more. Tersigni Palachek and 5-star contractor De Bono Construction are the dream team responsible for this extraordinarily masterful renovation.
The combination with adjacent PENTHOUSE B presents multiple creative opportunities. Together, there are three fireplaces, two skylights and views inside and outside in every direction. Penthouse B is currently configured with two bedrooms, three baths, library/media room, 30-foot living room with gas fireplace and french doors that open to the large East-facing landscaped terrace with room for dining. Sunny exposures South, East and North through oversized casement windows provide City views and an exciting Manhattan landscape.
