This duplex at The Beresford at 211 Central Park West possesses one of Manhattan’s finest Central Park-facing terraces. The sprawling Upper West Side co-op in the celebrity-studded classic Emery Roth-designed pre-war building was home to Broadway and screen talent Adolph Green (he wrote “Singin’ In The Rain”) and Tony Award-winning actor Phyllis Newman. In addition to the sprawling duplex and 600-square-foot terrace, $24 million will assure you dazzling panoramic views of the Park, Central Park South, and the city skyline. And next door, you’ll find Jerry Seinfeld’s place.

The generous proportions of this two-story home are due to the fact that is has retained its original layout as designed by legendary architect Emery Roth. In the 18-foot-by-29-foot living room, gleaming herringbone hardwood floors have been updated to showcase their long-lasting beauty, and a wood-burning fireplace provides warmth.

From both rooms, French doors open onto the stunning 600-square-foot terrace, where you’ll find some of the most unforgettable views available in Manhattan.

Also located off the gallery is a formal dining room with a butler’s pantry. A quaint kitchen and breakfast room could be combined for a large, light-filled eat-in kitchen with views of the Hudson River and beyond. There’s a back stair for quick access to the upstairs rooms.

Up an elegant stair rising from the gallery are three sprawling en suite bedrooms. A luxurious master has two walk-in-closets and a dressing room. Next door, another bedroom boasts two walk-in-closets. Both bedrooms face the park and have three large windows. A large third bedroom and two smaller bedrooms add up to a total of five, and there are four full baths. Also on this floor is the ultimate city luxury of a laundry room.
