There’s been a lot of talk about New Yorkers ditching the city for the suburbs, but when you’ve got four outdoor terraces, there’s probably less need to leave. This incredible duplex penthouse at 141 East 88th Street on the Upper East Side has just that, along with four bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, and chic, loft-like interiors.
When you enter on the main level, you’re greeted by a small foyer that has a convenient walk-in closet. From there, the open, double-height living/dining room takes center stage. It has a limestone-clad wood-burning fireplace and incredible floor-to-ceiling windows that include French doors leading onto the full-width terrace. It’s adorned with European tiles and stylish landscaping and has beautiful views of the neighborhood and beyond.
Throughout the home are 5-inch-wide white oak floors, honed stone, natural wood, and fine marble.
Adjacent to the terrace and also opening up to the terrace is the dining room. The open kitchen is also here, which makes for easy entertaining. The kitchen features custom millwork including a waterfall Danish Speka Heart Ashwood island, as well as a Sub Zero refrigerator, six-burner range, and under-counter wine fridge.
The secondary bedrooms are on the other side of this floor and both open to a full-length, west-facing terrace. One of the bedrooms has a cool, built-in bunk bed; this bedroom also has a walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom, making for a great guest suite. Outside, there’s a large laundry room and a powder room.
Upstairs, the fourth bedroom has been converted to a media room/library with a built-in projection system and motorized drop-down screen concealed in the built-in library. This space opens to another east-facing terrace.
The master bedroom has two walk-in closets, an en-suite bathroom, and a private west-facing terrace.
The building, known as Philip House, is a classic pre-war condominium built in 1927. It has a 24-hour doorman, fitness center, playroom, bike room, music room, cold storage, a large supplemental laundry room, and a study that leads out to a communal rooftop terrace.
