Museum Tower Penthouse

A once in a lifetime opportunity exists to purchase the Penthouse at the legendary Museum Tower. This impressive property occupies the Northern side of the 51st and 52nd floors, with spectacular views of Central Park, the Hudson River, George Washington Bridge, and/or Midtown, from every room. The Museum Tower, designed by architect Cesar Pelli, is an iconic award-winning full service, white glove building next to the Museum of Modern Art.

At 5000 square feet, the apartment is two floors of gracious living space. On the first floor, a double height entrance foyer with an imposing circular staircase draws you into the expansive 50 ft living room with its oversized windows that frame the awe-inspiring quintessential Manhattan skyline views. The space is perfectly scaled for entertaining with 2 setback terraces, one on each end of the living room, totaling nearly 800 sq ft. There is a wood burning fireplace, and handsome wood paneling surrounds the room. The commercial eat-in kitchen faces East and has a restaurant quality Wolf range, two subzero refrigerators, and tremendous cabinet and counter space.

The upper level of the duplex consists of three bedrooms, one currently used as a library, and two wood burning fireplaces. The master bedroom has two bathrooms, 3 walk -in closets, and a sizeable dressing area. The two additional bedrooms both have en-suite baths and generous closet space. All bedrooms have remarkable views of Central Park and/or the midtown skyline.

There is a staff room with ensuite bathroom, a butler's pantry, and laundry on the first floor, a guest powder room off the foyer, and a dumbwaiter to service between the floors. The Museum Tower is part of the prestigious MoMA landmark complex and is centrally located in the center of Midtown surrounded by the most prestigious residences and cultural institutions. Central Park, award winning restaurants, and fine shopping are but steps away. With a professional and attentive staff of 50+, the building offers incomparable service including optional maid, laundry and valet services. The building offers one of the finest fitness centers of its kind with a large array of equipment, as well as a media and conference room, and a beautifully landscaped roof terrace overlooking the MoMa gardens.

The Museum Tower offers the epitome of luxurious white glove living, and this apartment is its crown jewel. Showings by appointment.
