House of the Day: Central Park Penthouse Hits the Heights
Brimming with floor-to-ceiling windows that stare out over Manhattan's Central Park, this duplex penthouse epitomizes high-roller digs in the Big Apple. The Upper East Side apartment, running for $15.775 million, features a palatial foyer that leads into an upscale dining room, which is flanked by terraces overlooking the cityscape.
The first floor contains a spacious living room, media/library room, gourmet kitchen, breakfast room and limestone bathroom. Climb the winding steel and walnut staircase to reach the second story, where you'll find a master bedroom that features a wood-paneled dressing room and limestone master bathroom with Jacuzzi. There's also a second master bedroom with another limestone bathroom, plus a terrace.
Keep in mind, this place is not for people who are afraid of heights. With floor-to-ceiling windows punctuating much of the apartment's red-brick exterior, you can't escape the New York City skyline.
Cathy Franklin Alexis and Bodenheimer of Brown Harris Stevens have the listing.
