Just by appearance, this Upper East Side penthouse is brag-worthy. Located at the Art Deco co-op 895 Park Avenue, the 14-room apartment is spread across two floors and has multiple wood-burning fireplaces, wrap-around terraces with views in every direction, and a gorgeous solarium. But what really sets it apart is that it used to be home to famous composer and cultural icon Leonard Bernstein, and it’s even where he hosted his “radical chic” party as a fundraiser for the Black Panthers. And it can now be yours for $29,500,000.

In addition to the more formal living pictured above, the upper level of the home also has a more modern den, complete with another fireplace and floor-to-ceiling, wrap-around shelving. Throughout the home, you’ll find the original wood-burning fireplaces and wide-plank wood floors.

Both the living room and the den open to the wrap-around terrace, which has beautiful landscaping and views all the way down to Central Park South.

Another way to access the outdoor space is through the solarium off the dining room.

The kitchen is quite large and has both an enormous pantry with three full-sized wine fridges, as well as a breakfast room.

All six bedrooms are on the lower level; all but one have an en-suite bathroom. The closet space is ample, and there’s even a cedar closet in the hall. Also on this floor are a laundry room and small home office.

Building amenities include multiple doormen, an elevator attendant, a health club including a squash court and basketball court, and private storage units.
