DESCRIPTION

Grand and glorious candela penthouse surrounded by terraces

located in arguably one of the prettiest blocks in manhattan, east 57 street at sutton place, this breathtaking duplex penthouse is the perfect combination of elegant, prewar-interior grandeur and private terraces for unrivaled indoor/outdoor living.  Truly a masterclass in architectural achievement! the apartment was recently reimagined with a special attention to 1940's paris design and curated to perfection by the current owner in collaboration with bill brockschmidt and courtney coleman of elle dcor's the a list of best designers in the world design firm brockschmidt and coleman.  For the discerning buyer desiring a lifestyle acquisition, the apartment may also be delivered furnished.  

the main level

off a private elevator vestibule, the front door opens to a spectacular central gallery with a magnificent curved staircase and french doors leading to the alluring south facing terrace.  The gallery also provides entrance to both the living room and dining room each with its own access to the southern terrace.  The layout was designed to maximize flow from one beautiful room to the next and beyond to the outdoor spaces.  

the stunning paneled living room has exquisite detail, double exposures to the south and north, a pair of french doors to the terrace, and a magnificent restored wood-burning fire place with custom marble mantel.  Behind concealed solid paneled double doors is a refrigerated wet bar for ease in entertaining.  Handsome built-in bookcases and a desk are located between the living room and breakfast room which has an east facing bow window and lovely eastern morning light.  The kitchen has top-of-the-line appliances, a copper sink, two exposures, and access to one of the north terraces.  The magical, formal dining room faces south with french doors to the terrace.  This unbelievable space is adorned with gucci heron wallpaper.  A must see for interior design aficionados.  This room once served as a library or bedroom with a full bath.  The current owner repurposed the room as a dining room with terrace access.  The bath now functions as a closet.  There are two large bedrooms with windows overlooking the terrace and en suite baths of the finest quality.  A gracious powder room completes this level of the residence.  

primary bedroom suite

upstairs is a sumptuous primary bedroom suite with south, north, east, and west exposures.  The second bedroom is now an expansive dressing room with abundant closets and a perfectly positioned south facing window.  A separate and charming study offers skyline views to the south and access to the enormous upstairs terrace, a verdant roof-top garden.  The master bath is spa quality; the skylight shower ceiling is an extraordinary touch.  

the penthouse at 447 east 57 street is unlike anything else you have ever seen.  No detail was overlooked.  The synthesis of design conception and execution is without peer.
