This pre-war triplex penthouse, listed for $2.85 million, sits atop the Murray Hill apartment complex known as Windsor Tower at 5 Tudor City Place where “Scarface,” “The Godfather,” and “Spider-Man” were filmed; a nearly identical penthouse unit can be seen onscreen as the home of Spider-Man’s green nemesis, Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin in the popular movie and yet another penthouse was featured in both Woody Allen’s “Bullets Over Broadway” and “The Godfather: Part III.” But you don’t need Hollywood cachet to appreciate 18-foot ceilings, a wall of casement windows overlooking the East River, a wood-burning fireplace, or a dramatic staircase that curves its way up to an intimate terrace.
This two-bedroom apartment is filled with 1920s charm framed by beautiful hardwood floors and that breathtaking staircase.
On the first level, you’ll find an eat-in kitchen and a second bedroom that’s currently being used as a dining room/den.
Up one flight is a mezzanine overlooking the great room below. On this level, you’ll find the master bedroom with en suite bath and laundry.
Upstairs, a massive private upper terrace with stunning views to the north, east, and south is ideal for entertaining or quiet evenings. The 1929 building features a 24-hour attended lobby, a gym and bike storage.
