A Terraced Trophy Penthouse, Now Available for Rent

Fresh off a gut renovation from one of NYC’s top interior designers, PHA at the stunning Arcadia is a one-of-a-kind residence nearly untouched and ready for the most discerning buyers. The work resembles the perfect marriage of beautiful modern design with the best of the Classic layouts often sought on the Upper East Side.

Upon entering through the gracious foyer from a landing shared with only one other home, you immediately feel the magnitude of this space. The nearly 12 foot ceilings are complemented by wrap-around floor-to-ceiling windows, a working fireplace, and unobstructed views and natural light. This room transitions beautifully to the Library where the double sided fireplace is also featured adjacent to a wall of custom shelving and a charming sliding library ladder.

There is a separate, yet open dining room large enough for a great table of almost any size. There are plenty of walls for art with custom storage below. There are transitional hand carved marble panels allowing the light to flow in from the living room as well as a gorgeous built-in bar.

This leads you to the jaw-dropping chef’s kitchen with custom cabinetry and views south over the Manhattan skyline. This kitchen has everything you could dream of from the beautiful counters and center island, top of the line appliances, and a full size temperature control wine storage. Across from the kitchen is a guest bedroom with a stunning ensuite bathroom.

Downstairs is the bedroom wing of the home. There are two over-sized secondary bedrooms with absolutely incredible custom built closets and a shared beautiful bathroom.

As you pass the laundry room with Hermes wallpaper and a sink, you begin to enter the Primary Suite of this home, and it does not disappoint! It must be seen to be fully appreciated. The custom renovation combined two bedrooms into one majestic room. And while the corner windows and sweeping views will certainly impress, it is the closets and bathrooms that will make your dreams come true. The closets were outfitted by poliform and will perfectly showcase your collection. And the bathroom needs to be seen in order for one to fully appreciate the 6×6 back lit Onyx shower.

To top it all off, this home also features one of the best private terraces in the neighborhood. There is an outdoor kitchen with a gas grill, and over a thousand square feet to enjoy the private outdoor oasis of your dreams. Additionally, the home is wired for speakers throughout. You will find some of the most fantastic closet space offered in any residence, and you will enjoy total serenity as the home is pin drop quiet in the sky with total privacy from any surrounding buildings.

It doesn’t get any better. Call today as this one will be gone fast!
