Not only is this apartment three floors, but it has a two-floor terrace, too. It’s the Terrace Penthouse at 555 West End Avenue, a former Beaux-Arts school building transformed into a 13-unit boutique condo. The Upper West Side home is currently listed for $22.5 million and has four bedrooms, a two-story living area connected by a floating staircase, and a full-floor roof terrace that’s accessed via an outdoor staircase leading from the wraparound terrace.

The great room is anchored by a double-sided marble gas fireplace, and there’s enough space for several seating and dining areas.

The full width of the great room opens onto the landscaped, wrap-around terrace through oversized steel-framed French doors. The brick and stone turrets from the building’s neo-Gothic façade frame this outdoor area beautifully. A large, open-air staircase leads to the rooftop terrace, which has incredible views and is perfect for outdoor dining.

The open, eat-in kitchen has elegant white-oak cabinetry, which also conceals the refrigerator and other appliances, and Polished Arabescato marble slab counters and backsplashes. Appliances include a Wolf 48-inch dual-fuel range with vented hood, Sub-Zero refrigerator, freezer with ice maker, wine storage, and under-counter refrigerator, dual Wolf microwave drawers, multiple Miele dishwashers, a garbage disposal, and a pot filler. There’s also a butler’s pantry.

The master suite has seven-foot-tall east-facing windows, a pair of walk-in closets, and a large windowed bathroom with a water closet with a smart toilet, a digital-controlled steam shower, and soaking tub. The bathroom also boasts Calacatta Gold marble slabs, towel warmers, and radiant heat floors.

The building was designed in 1908 by architect William A. Boring in the English collegiate- and Gothic-styles as the Catholic St. Agnes Boys High School. Cary Tamarkin purchased 555 West End Avenue from the Archdiocese of New York for $50 million in 2014, and developed the project along with CL Investment Group.
