A fabulous 9 room, four bedroom duplex penthouse which defines luxurious living in the heart of Manhattan's fashionable Upper East Side.

This magnificent four bedroom plus library, four and a half bath duplex is a true home in the sky. Located on the 19th and 20th floors at the top of a white glove cooperative it enjoys spectacular views, including some of Central Park, and is on a lovely, tree lined block. Three spacious terraces are appropriately adjacent to the three entertaining rooms- the grand living room with wood burning fireplace, the library and the gracious dining room. Light streams in to the entire home through oversized picture windows from four open exposures. Perfectly laid out, the public spaces and terraces are on the first floor of this duplex, and the four generous bedrooms are upstairs on the second level.

Off a semi-private landing, one enters into an elegant gallery, anchored by a grand central staircase and off of which the fabulous living/entertaining rooms flow. The library with terrace faces South and West with peeks of Central Park, the living room with terrace faces East and South and the formal dining room with terrace faces East and North. In addition, the dining room has a floor-to-ceiling, 250-bottle temperature controlled wine cabinet and is ideally situated just off the kitchen and staff room. Renovated just two years ago, the designer windowed eat-in Pedini kitchen contains the finest high end appliances, blue glass cabinetry, two pantries, and a lovely windowed eating nook with a large window facing North with open views. The very spacious windowed staff room off the kitchen has a new full bathroom, washing machine and vented dryer. The main floor is complete with a powder room off the gallery and amazing closets and storage space.

The upper level has four large bedrooms, each with open views (one with a view of the Park) and a bathroom to service them. The oversized master bedroom, with a wall of windows facing South and East, enjoys two walk in closets and a sumptuous bathroom with two East-facing windows.

Other special features of this home include an integrated speaker system that can fill any of the entertaining rooms with music, beautiful hardwood and herringbone floors and combination of through-wall and central air conditioning throughout. In addition, each terrace is planted, irrigated and lit.

179 East 70th Street is a full service cooperative with full time doormen, resident manager, new lobby, new fitness center, two elevators, including one that connects to either of this apartment's levels, and private storage space. Wonderfully located minutes from the chic stores of Madison Avenue, the Lexington Avenue subway stops on 68th and 77th street, the Central Park 66th, 72nd and 76th Street playgrounds and the best restaurants of the Upper East Side.

Please call for a private viewing.
