Description: “A truly one-of-a-kind duplex penthouse perched atop the coveted Sterling Plaza building, this highly customized 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom home is a private oasis that boasts the vaunted combination of location, size, views, and outdoor space. Features of this exclusive 3,563 sq. ft. property include imported Russian wide plank oak floors, dramatic East River views, a professionally-installed sound system with built-in speakers, a Savant Home Intelligence system, heated flooring in all bathrooms, and a completely private 1620 sq. ft. rooftop terrace with 360-degree views.

From the foyer the home expands into a cavernous, open-concept living and dining room. Perfect for entertaining guests, the room features an onyx bar that comes complete with an ice maker, a wine refrigerator, and a sink. The living area boasts a chic wood-burning fireplace while the dining area possesses enough room for a 14-person table and is flanked by oversized windows that flood entire space with natural light. Down a short hall lies an immaculate, windowed chef’s kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with imported Boffi countertops and cabinetry, a Gaggenau 70-bottle wine refrigerator, 2 Miele dishwashers, 2 Miele ovens, a Gaggenau refrigerator with separate freezer drawers, a Gaggenau gas cooktop, a Miele integrated coffee maker, 2 integrated Corian sinks, and a huge eat-in island.

The master suite sits beyond a set of wooden double doors and features an elegant walkway with a pair of custom closets, western city views, and a spa-like ensuite bathroom imported by Boffi. The bathroom contains a free-standing soaking tub, a 2-person walk-in shower and steam room, and a double vanity sink. The home’s 2nd bedroom—which lies adjacent to the master—has a pair of closets as well as an ensuite bathroom. Down the Guggenheim-inspired staircase are the home’s final 2 bedrooms as well as a conveniently placed utility closet with a side-by-side washer/dryer. Graced with an additional guest entrance for privacy, the first floor is serviced by a luxurious bathroom that has walk-in shower, a separate spa tub, a sauna, and double vanity sinks. The third bedroom features a private balcony and a walk-in closet while the fourth bedroom has direct access to the sauna and bathroom.

Atop it all lies the home’s fully manicured rooftop terrace spanning 1,620 square feet. The space has spectacular city views—including those of the Chrysler and the Empire State Buildings—and is outfitted with a grill, several lounge areas, integrated lighting and sound, custom artificial boxwood hedges, and an enclosed pantry/bar space covering 120 square feet that has a refrigerator, a wine cooler, and a microwave. This beautiful home can also be available fully furnished.

Sterling Plaza is a luxury full-service condominium that was developed and lived-in by famed New York Mets owner Fred Wilpon. The building features a 24-hour doorman and concierge, and is only blocks away from Fifth Avenue shopping, the Theater District, Central Park, the United Nations, and some of the finest restaurants and bars the city has to offer. Nearby subway lines include the 6, E and V. The M16 and M49 buses stop at the corner. Pets are welcome.”
