This $8M penthouse near the UN has some killer views

Not only does this penthouse at One United Nations Park have the title “United Nations” in its address, but the sprawling duplex residence has incredible views of the landmark, along with those of Queens, Brooklyn, Midtown Manhattan, the East River, and more. Located at 695 First Avenue, between East 39th and East 40th Streets, the four-bedroom home is nearly 3,000 square feet, with a wrap-around terrace amounting to another 460 square feet.

One United Nations Park was designed by Richard Meier & Partners Architects, who are also responsible for the interiors. To juxtapose the tower’s black glass facade, the interiors were kept purposefully light, with floor-to-ceiling windows and white oak floors.

In the open kitchen, you’ll find white Calacatta Lincoln marble counters, Dornbracht fixtures, and Gaggenau appliances clad in custom-crafted Italian white lacquer. Off the kitchen, there’s a powder room and a laundry room.

The double-height great room, of course, steals the show. For a more casual living space, there’s a den right off the great room. Also on the first level is a bedroom and adjacent full bath. There are entrances to the terrace from all of the rooms on this floor.

Upstairs, the master suite has a large walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom. The two other bedrooms have en-suites, too.

Amenities at the building include an on-site parking garage, 70-foot indoor lap pool with steam and sauna, fitness center with a private training studio, billiards room, catering kitchen and private dining room, screening room, playroom, and concierge services.
