This truly spectacular duplex penthouse is a spacious urban oasis perched atop the Piano Factory, one of Manhattanís most distinctive historic loft conversion buildings. Spread across two dramatic levels, this expansive one-of-a-kind 4-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home is the apartment that has it all, including a stunning light-filled living room and a gigantic private terrace with sweeping skyline views. Set on a quiet, tree-lined block that is minutes from the heart of Midtown, the nineteenth-century Piano Factory is an enchanting private enclave centered around a magnificent interior courtyard filled with landscaped greenery. Tucked behind the courtyard in the complexís quiet rear building, this sixth-floor penthouse serves as the co-opís crowning jewel.
The main level is anchored by a wow-inducing living room set below a striking vaulted-glass ceiling that floods that entire space with sunlight, and leads out to a huge terrace offering jaw-dropping skyline vistas taking in everything from the historic buildings of Hellís Kitchen to the Time Warner Center towers near Central Park. Set above the complexís leafy courtyard, this serene and quiet space provides unbelievable nighttime views, along with a myriad of options for entertaining, gardening and living.
The opposite side of the main level consists of a huge eat-in cookís kitchen that wraps around the corner of the unit and is filled with light from dual exposures. The roomy kitchen is equipped with an overflow of innovative cherry wood cabinetry and an array of chef-friendly details, including a Jenn-Air 5-burner stove top with a vented Thermador hood, a Dacor convection oven, microwave oven and warming tray, a Bosch dishwasher, two deep sinks with garbage disposals and radiant heated floors. The kitchen leads out to a second terrace with southern views. This level also includes a large dining area, a half-bathroom and a charming home office/den separated off by pocket doors.
An attractive wooden staircase leads down to the duplexís fifth floor, a flexible space that is currently configured as four bedrooms and two full baths, with ceilings that reach well over 10 feet. The master suite boasts southern and eastern exposures, a dressing area, his-and-hers closets, and a full bath, while unique details on this level include an enviable double-wide coat closet, expansive below-stair storage space, and a large laundry room with a Bosch washer and dryer, built-in clothes rack and ironing board, and a washboard sink. The apartment is equipped with two-zone central A/C and threeĖzone heating. All of the interior walls are non-load bearing, allowing for a range of renovation options to suit your own taste. Owners of this unit also have roof rights above the apartment and with board approval could potentially build a third dazzling deck.
The Piano Factory, a one-of-a-kind co-op complex dating back to circa 1870s, is widely admired for its charming brick faÁade, meticulously restored 19th-century details, arched entryway and European-like courtyard. The pet-friendly property has a live-in super. Hellís Kitchen has truly become the Downtown alternative, a neighborhood with a hip vibe but all the convenience of Midtown, and West 46th Street is one of the areaís most attractive blocks, with charming small buildings accompanied by a scattering of high-end boutiques, a popular playground and an active block association. Ninth Avenueís diverse restaurant and nightlife options are just around the corner and legendary Restaurant Row is a block further. Hudson River Park and its spacious waterfront dog run are two blocks away, with the Theater District, and the heart of Midtown Manhattan within a short stroll. The A/C/E, B/D/F/M, N/R/Q, 1/2/3 and 7 subway lines are all nearby, and the Citibike station at 47th Street and 10th Avenue is just one short block from the front door.
