Barbizon/63, 140 East 63rd Street, PH3 - Upper East Side, New York
A one-of-a-kind penthouse featuring 3 dramatic terraces, views to Central Park plus spectacular open city vistas. The apartment was completely gut renovated and reimagined by one of San Francisco's leading designers, Douglas Durkin, and has dramatically taller ceilings than most in the building. This penthouse has magnificently planted terraces on one of the highest floor in the Barbizon 63, a prewar condominium originally conceived as a hotel for women built in 1927 with Italian Renaissance and Late Gothic Revival elements. The apartment occupies the entire 19th floor of the building and the elevator opens directly into the apartment. With terraces off the elegantly designed living room as well as the media room/library and kitchen, the apartment has an enormous and lavishly appointed master suite with huge walk-in closets and a sumptuous marble bathroom. There is a 2nd bedroom and full bathroom, a completely customized eat-in kitchen with high-end appliances and terrace with a dedicated gas line for outdoor grilling, a chic powder room, professional washer and dryer, custom museum lightning with 1-button on/off controls for the entire apartment, electric blinds throughout, custom floors and an irrigation system for each of the three terraces. Literally every single surface of the apartment was renovated and upgraded. The Barbizon 63 is a sought after condominium on Manhattan's desirable Upper East Side, located on the south-east corner of 63rd Street and Lexington Avenue. Conveniently close to Midtown and the city's finest dining and shopping, the building offers a concierge, 24-hour doorman, resident manager plus full building staff, and amenities such as a screening room, private dining room with catering kitchen, library, conference room and separate state-of-the-art Equinox gym with private access for residents from the building's lobby featuring the original pool of the Barbizon Hotel (where Grace Kelly, Liza Minelli, Lauren Bacall and other famous women once stayed). This is truly one of the most desirable penthouses in Manhattan in one of its finest residences. Please call or email for your private viewing.
