Description

Located at the corner of East 69th Street and Madison Avenue in the former Westbury Hotel, this magnificent two-story penthouse offers panoramic views overlooking the New York skyline and Central Park. The hotel was opened in 1927 during the height of the Roaring 20's and was converted into 47 condominium apartments in 1999.

Smith Architectural Group was commissioned to convert the top two floors of the building into a luxury penthouse reminiscent of those in the classical pre-war buildings of New York. In a herculean effort, the top two floors of the building were removed and rebuilt to allow for the numerous mechanical, electrical, and structural elements. The final result was a 6,241 square foot penthouse which has widely been considered one of New York's finest homes.

After arriving to the private elevator vestibule clad in marble and custom millwork, a mahogany door welcomes guests to the sun-flooded two story entrance foyer complete with marble staircase and custom gilded iron railing.

A thirty-foot gallery graced with decorative plaster moldings, intricate marble floor and a plaster-coffered ceiling leads to the library and living room. Windows along the gallery open to a beautiful terrace that runs along the east side of the apartment and provides light to all rooms.

Old English knotty pine in the living room and library harkens to the pre-war days of old New York and creates a relaxed atmosphere to the otherwise formal rooms. French doors flank the fireplace in the living room and open to the spacious outside terraces totaling 3,585 square feet, and providing dramatic views of the New York skyline. A powder room and office, or fourth bedroom (with full bathroom), complete the formal side of this floor.

At the northern end of the first floor the tremendous eat-in-kitchen, which boasts light from three exposures, is large enough for any party and features an oversized butler's pantry complete with staff kitchen and bathroom. The northern terrace, similar in size to the southern terrace off the living room, has spectacular views of Central Park and the Carlyle Hotel and is complimented by a stunning English greenhouse.

Ascending up the grand staircase, or private elevator, one arrives on a marble landing which separates the enormous master suite from the two guest suites. The master suite encompasses over 2,000 square feet complete with separate marble bathrooms and dressing rooms, a breakfast bar and a wood-burning fireplace.

The Westbury offers full hotel amenities such as concierge, a large full-time staff, fitness center, wine cellars, and a bicycle room. A private wine storage bin and double storage unit transfer with this apartment.
