With 65 feet of unobstructed river front living and 1,175 square feet of private outdoor space high atop Sutton Place South, Penthouse 19BS maximizes its direct river views at every opportunity. The picture of traditional elegance overlooking the East River, this penthouse duplex has three bedrooms, four bathrooms, one powder room, a formal library, as well as a sunroom with three distinct terraces each with breathtaking views.
Occupying the top two floors of the southern tower, no expense was spared and no detail overlooked when creating this dreamscape perched high above the East River Promenade. A Carrara marble tiled foyer greets you as you enter the lower floor of this residence. Here you will find the kitchen, dining room, living room, library and one of three bedrooms. Custom millwork abounds, with closets integrated seamlessly into the Holly Hunt-covered blue walls. The eat-in-kitchen, with heated floors and tiled with imported stone, features a La Cornue French range with pot filler faucet, dual dishwashers, and seven custom mahogany storage closets with slide out drawers for ease of access. The expansive dining room opens to the graceful and spacious living room, both of which boast padded walls for sound insulation. The living room features the first of two working fireplaces, a drop down movie screen and projector, motorized speaker cabinetry, and Crestron system. Just beyond the living room lies the mahogany clad library, creating a full 65 feet of unobstructed river frontage that can fulfill any entertaining need you could imagine, whether it is intimate family gatherings or hosting large celebrations. Lutron system is found throughout the apartment.
Enter the lower floor terrace through the library or the adjacent bedroom with walls covered in fine ultra-suede, two large custom closets and its own en-suite bathroom. Each terrace features a self-irrigation drip system as well as access to water and electric. A powder room just off of the foyer and next to the sweeping staircase completes the lower floor.
Take the staircase, swathed in polished mahogany, upstairs to one of the most replete primary bedroom suites found on the Upper East Side. Two dressing rooms and two full bathrooms with heated floors are just the beginning of everything this palatial suite has to offer. Access the first dressing room from the landing, with built-in mahogany dressers, closets with full length mirrors laid into the intricate woodwork, and a rolling ladder to accommodate the extended storage granted by 10 foot ceilings. The generously sized second dressing room, with pleather-covered built-in dressers and mahogany cabinetry, has its own full bathroom, glass encased spa steam shower, and Toto heated self-cleaning toilet. The crown jewel of this space is twofold: the private terrace with 13 feet of unobstructed river views and the sunroom that encases the second full bathroom as well as the adjacent office. Relax at the end of the day in your own private spa with a soaking tub overlooking the East River as you watch Roosevelt Island and beyond illuminate at night. This luxurious primary suite is complete with a working fireplace as well as additional storage hidden in the ceiling.
The third terrace, located on the upper floor, can be entered through the primary suite's office or from the third bedroom, found across the landing from the primary suite. A built-in desk with shelving in addition to custom closets, an en-suite bathroom, and quilted fabric walls finish off this third and final bedroom.
