Is the Third Time a Charm for This $40M Penthouse with Glass Floors and a Seven-Car Garage?
All it takes is one glance at this head-turner to see that it’s pretty special. The 11,000-square-foot duplex features glass floors, floor-to-ceiling windows offering 360 degree views of the Hudson River and the city, and 5,200 square feet of outdoor space in the form of several terraces. The stunning penthouse has had a time of it on the market, first popping up in 2012 with an $80,000 a month price tag, and then reappearing in October 2014 asking $95,000 a month. Now it’s trying its hand at the sales market for $39.8 million.
By our calculations, that stunning lead picture you’re looking at is the view from the master bedroom, so we’re going to start there. The impressive master suite features two large windowed walk-in closets, a fireplace, and an en suite bathroom with a steam room. There’s also a private entryway to the expansive outdoor terrace. Imagine waking up and opening a set of double doors to that view of the entry hall and atrium below. Not too shabby, right? The second bedroom also has plenty of closet space and quick access to the terrace, along with an en suite bathroom that has a second entrance to keep guests from trekking through the bedroom.
Downstairs there’s a generous living room with wood-burning fireplace, an entertainment room off the central atrium, an open eat-in chef’s kitchen with a barbecue grill, a home office, a formal dining room, and a large prep kitchen with a giant walk-in pantry. The home comes with a 3,000-square-foot private garage that can house up to seven cars, and a first floor guest apartment can be yours for an additional $1.5 million.
