Perched atop a beautiful, circa-1928 building on East 61st Street sits this wondrous unit with sweeping Central Park views and ample outdoor space. It’s on the market now for the first time since the 19th and 20th floors were combined to make it a grand duplex penthouse. Asking $15.9 million, you get a lot for your money here considering there are other multi level penthouses in the city asking high figures such as $27.9 million in SoHo
and a whopping $77.7 million in Madison Square Park Tower
.Stepping into the light-drenched foyer, the first thing that catches the eye is the stately curved staircase. This floor conveniently holds all four of the bedrooms, including the sumptuous master suite with a dressing room and private terrace, in case the apartment’s four other terraces aren’t divine enough.With 4,300-square-feet of interior living space in total, there are plenty of chic gathering areas right up the stairs, or the private internal elevator if you prefer. A great room with a fireplace leads to one of the terraces and other breathtaking spaces include the chef’s kitchen, dining room, and library/media room. When it’s warm out, the 1,175-square-feet of outdoor space will be superb for entertaining.Randall Gianopulos and Stan Ponte of Sotheby’s International Realty
