Listing: 200 East 59th Street PH 34
Sep 2, 2021 | By: LX Collection
Penthouse 34 of 200 East 59 brings indoor-outdoor living to the fore with its 148 linear feet of continuous terrace overlooking Central Park and the Manhattan skyline. This full-floor residence boasts 14-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling glass windows that join its pristine and airy interiors with the generous outdoor space that sets it apart from other Manhattan residences. The corner penthouse’s great room features expansive views over Central Park and offers multiple points of entry onto the wraparound terrace. A winding outdoor staircase leads to the home’s additional rooftop outdoor space, with magnificent views over the city.
“It’s rare to find a penthouse that has unobstructed views of Central Park, the Chrysler Building, and the Queensboro Bridge. But the pièce de résistance for this home is the outdoor space: a wraparound terrace on the main floor plus an additional expansive, partially covered rooftop, that affords residents a true 360 degree perspective of the city,” said Kathryn Neugold, the director of sales at 200 East 59. “Penthouse 34 brings an incredible opportunity to live above the city … Its modern design combined with its ideal location—just across the street from Bloomingdale’s flagship—makes this listing one of the most desirable on the market today.”
Architecture and interior design firm CetraRuddy created the column-free interiors to allow sightlines and light to flow throughout the residence. The kitchen also reflects this airiness with its Italian white glass and aluminum trim cabinetry by Aran Cucine and Brilliant White Plus glass appliances by Miele. The corner, north-facing primary suite sports two dressing rooms and a windowed ensuite bathroom that offers honed marble floors with radiant heating.
The legendary Upper East Side is what many envision when they think of New York. The neighborhood where Astors, Rockefellers, and Roosevelts made their home, this old-money enclave is still the stomping grounds of the city’s wealthiest residents. And why not? It’s a veritable cultural feast, from the Guggenheim, Frick, and Metropolitan art museums to world-class restaurants and bistros like Daniel, JoJo, and Café Sabarsky, the latter of which is nestled in a landmarked mansion once occupied by Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt III. We’d also be remiss not to mention the neighborhood’s 37 blocks of frontage along Central Park—and, on its opposite side, the East River—as well as its assortment of fine private schools with alumni such as Dr. Anthony Fauci (Regis High School), actress Tracee Ellis Ross (Dalton School), and fashion designer Vera Wang (Chapin School).
And, of course, 200 East 59 ticks every box for must-have amenities with its double-height lounge with a marble fireplace and landscaped common terrace, its sunlit fitness center, and its doorman, porters, and concierge service that are available 24 hours a day. The building also adds to the mix with its private dining room with a catering kitchen, as well as additional bicycle and resident storage.
