DUPLEX PENTHOUSE WITH VIEWS & SUN!
EXTRAORDINARY VALUE -- ESTATE MUST SETTLE & SAYS SELL & WILL PAY 6 MONTH'S MAINTENANCE!! This is an phenomenal (and rarely available) opportunity for a qualified buyer to purchase a superlative top-floor duplex penthouse apartment (floors 20 & 21) 'far' below market value.
The apartment features six lovely proportioned rooms (2-3 bedrooms), and upper and lower East facing terraces.
The apartment is in original 'estate' condition requiring renovation.
On the first level, a gracious entry vestibule with windowed powder room/half bath, an 'East to West' living room (with terrace) & formal dining room stretching end-to-end (35 Ft. in length!).
The two over-sized public rooms (ideal for entertaining!) are connected by two sets of beautifully mitered mahogany doors and detailed with large mahogany crown moldings. A west facing kitchen and a convertible bedroom (study or staff room) with views west across Central Park complete the first level.
A dramatic winding staircase with east facing window leads gracefully to the upper level comprising a master bedroom (with terrace), second bedroom, full bath and abundant closet space. There is access to the upper level of the duplex directly from the 21st floor.
The apartment is open and airy, utterly tranquil, swept by brilliant Eastern & Western light with unobstructed panoramic skyline views in ALL directions.
The apartment offers an extremely versatile floor plan; the large amount of space provides a variety of possibilities for re-configuration. One attractive, practical option would be the conversion of the entire 2nd level to a master suite, including master, dressing room, study, terrace, etc.
The 'Victorian' is a distinguished 'white glove' full service coop on a leafy side street in a wonderful east side neighborhood -- with proximity to shops, boutiques and restaurants, and all modes of transportation. There is a private garage in the building. Maintenance fee includes basic cable and electricity; 75% financing allowed; pets & pied-a-terre's allowed.
Note: 1.) furnishings shown in photos are from previously occupied apartment; apartment is presently vacant; 2.) 175 East 62nd Street is a land-lease building, similar to apartments ('leaseholds') in the most affluent areas of Central London.
The present land lease was negotiated in 2010 for 99 years with very favorable terms for the co-op. For buyers willing to pay marginally more monthly maintenance due to building's (very stable!) leasehold status will receive a substantial purchase price benefit!
The leasehold is owned (and has been) for over 100 years by the Scottish noble house of 'Roxburghe.
