On streets lined with historic buildings, glamorous historic hotels, and stately townhouses, modern architecture on the Upper East Side is rare, making the neighborhood’s notable modernist buildings all the more desirable. Behind a sleek limestone and glass facade, this two-bedroom condo at 949 Park Avenue, asking $5,350,000, is a fine example. The light-filled duplex has massive windows offering iconic Upper East Side views from within and from the home’s two terraces, one on each level.

Looking out over the treetops of Park Avenue, the 2,100-square-foot apartment has a breezy Miami vibe, framed by pale walls, 10-foot ceilings, white oak flooring, and modern lighting and sound. Access the home via a private keyed elevator; the large living room gets all-day sunlight from a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows.

The eat-in kitchen offers a custom banquette for dining. This stylish space features marble countertops and dark cabinets, with attractive and capable appliances by Smeg and SubZero. Off the kitchen is a dazzling corner terrace for outdoor relaxing and entertaining. Also on the lower floor of the duplex: A chic powder room and a vented washer and dryer.

Up a glass-framed staircase, the home’s two large bedrooms each have an en-suite bath. The master suite gets the home’s second balcony overlooking Park Avenue as well as two large closets. The master bath offers a walk-in shower and a separate soaking tub. On the other side of this floor, the second bedroom has ample closet space and a marble bath.

Though the subtle elegance of the home’s interiors fits its Park Avenue address, modern convenience highlights all corners of this unconventional home. Highlights include multi-zone central air, automated lighting and shades, a sound system with speakers in every room, and radiant heated flooring.

The boutique condominium building contains only four units in the building; they have rarely changed hands since the building’s creation. The 12-story residence offers a 24-hour doorman and concierge service for a high level of privacy despite its proximity to Central Park, Madison Avenue shopping, and the neighborhood’s convenience and cultural bounty.
