This 5,000-square-foot penthouse at 303 East 57th Street in the Excelsior co-op tower is the sort of apartment you see in your favorite 20th-century New York City films. Asking $4,995,000, the duplex is wrapped by 2,500 square feet of terrace and offers 360-degree views from four exposures including Central Park and the East River.

Although it currently features two bedrooms, the renovated space has more than enough room for five. A stunning marshmallow-hued gallery makes a glamorous entry.

The space is anchored by a sinuous spiral stair and lit by a mod elliptical skylight. The gallery opens into a light-filled filled living room.

Also on this level is a well-stocked chef’s kitchen and a charming breakfast room. A spacious dining room that accommodates at least 10 guests extends onto a south-facing balcony for an outdoor eyeful of those glittering city views.

This level also has a large guest bedroom, a laundry room, a powder room, and a wet bar. The duplex is configured perfectly for both privacy and entertaining.

On the top floor is more Manhattan magic: A glass-wrapped home office is a work-from-home dream. Also present are a media room and a sitting room. A diva-ready master bedroom has a marble-wrapped bath, dressing room, and closets in every direction. The best part, though, is the wrap-around terrace just outside almost every room.

Built in 1967 and designed by Philip Birnbaum, The Excelsior is a full-service co-op with Billionaire’s Row cachet and a Sutton Place location. Amenities include a full-time doorman and concierge, a gym and spa, a roof deck, a swimming pool, a garage, a laundry room, and a valet.
