A singular opportunity to secure exclusive occupancy of an extraordinary aerie, an elegant 14,000 square foot Penthouse duplex comprising two full floors located high atop the prestigious white-glove condominium which stands immediately above the Museum of Modern Art.

Designed with a distinctive glass facade of warm-gray toned panels by the eminent Argentinian-born postmodern architect César Pelli, the resoundingly modern Museum Tower sets a high standard as the first residential condominium to successfully meld the worlds of culture and commerce.

Rising 52 stories above MOMA, the Penthouse is a true mansion in the sky, flooded with natural light and enjoying panoramic views of Central Park and the iconic New York City skyline, with high ceilings, eight wood-burning fireplaces and a three private recessed, limestone-clad terraces, a total of 1,800 exterior square feet.

The impeccably finished interiors have been custom-designed to achieve a clear expression of refined urban luxury. Each room of the duplex judiciously incorporates classic architectural detail to the best effect. The versatile floorplan maximizes the superb scale, sight lines, and abundance of resplendent light and dazzling views in every direction.

The centerpiece of the spectacular duplex is a striking wrought-iron and bronze semi-circular interior staircase, inspired by one found in an eighteenth-century Parisian hotel particulier.

A seventy-five foot long Gallery features a patterned floor of the same limestone specified by I.M. Pei for the Louvre Pyramid and opens onto an elegant suite of three well-proportioned reception rooms, each flooded in southern sunlight with splendid skyline views. The expansive Library, both impressive and comfortable, is fitted with a fireplace and antique English pine paneling acquired from Crowther of Syon Lodge. An adjacent airy corner Study opens onto the large eastern terrace. A stunning corner Living Room with fireplace enjoys spectacular sunsets and access to second large terrace facing west.

An elegant Dining Room, Gallery, and an expansive state-of-the-art Chef’s Kitchen each open onto the west terrace. The dramatic Great Room is bookended by two terraces and boasts three exposures with fifty-two feet of Central Park views, a recessed wet bar and a fireplace. An extraordinary Egyptian Powder Room and three additional Powder Rooms, a Butler’s Pantry, a Staff Kitchen, a Staff Bedroom/Laundry and Bathroom complete the 51st Floor.

Upstairs, a sumptuous Master Bedroom Suite features a large Master Bedroom and a corner Study, each with fireplace, two luxurious Master Bathrooms, ample closets and a Gym. A private Guest Bedroom Suite, accessible from a second sweeping circular stair, enjoys Central Park views from a large corner Bedroom and a Library, each with a fireplace, two Master Bathrooms and a Dressing Room. Five additional Bedrooms each with an en-suite Bathroom, and a Gymnasium and a Powder Room complete the 52nd Floor. Private outside storage is also located on this floor.

The Museum Tower's amenities include the full-time availability of hotel-quality doormen, concierge, valets and elevator attendants, a fitness center with a sauna, a steam room and a meditation room, a screening room, a business conference room, a wine storage room, a landscaped roof terrace and housekeeping and laundry services. Pets, corporate ownership and financing are permitted. A transfer tax of two (2) percent of the purchase price is payable by the Purchaser.

Grand, airy, and brimming with natural light, the majestic Penthouse at Museum Tower represents the pinnacle in understated elegance, sophisticated security and privacy.
