If you missed the opportunity in 2013 to snap up this one-of-a-kind Midtown East penthouse that played home to Spiderman’s green nemesis, you’re in luck. Back on the market for a cool $2 million–$400,000 more than when it was last listed–this duplex residence at Windsor Tower features dramatic proportions, which made it the perfect pad for Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin in the popular movie.
The living room boasts 18-foot ceilings and coveted views of the Chrysler building through soaring 15-foot casement windows. Yet the oversized 1920s-era wood-burning fireplace somehow makes the vast space feel warm and inviting.
The second level of this castle-esque home features a renovated kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a dining gallery which overlooks the living room and takes full advantage of those enormous windows, and a master suite with private bath and walk-in closets.
An elegant wrapping staircase brings guests to the upper level where doors open to the private, approximately-300-square-foot terrace with spectacular city views. While you’re not likely to run into the Green Goblin here any time soon, the building’s famed gargoyles will be on guard just in case. Until then, they offer a decorative conversation piece during morning coffee, afternoon tea, or an evening with your favorite aperitif.
Located in the heart of Midtown in one of the Tudor City landmark towers, this gorgeous home is conveniently located just three blocks from Grand Central providing easy access for your weekend getaways. Personally, we’d never want to leave.
