Bigger is better so the saying goes, and you’ll get no argument from this nearly 8,000-square-foot duplex at 28 East 70th Street. Luckily, you have us to navigate the way through the 20+ rooms that make this home a truly remarkable residence.
The most difficult part of our journey? Where to start! So grab your key (for the elevator) and step right into this stunning condo’s marble-floored reception foyer and spacious entry gallery, ensuring complete privacy for the rest of the home’s wings. Yes, wing is a totally appropriate description to use with a residence of this size.
Straight ahead is a bright, open and oversized dining area perfect for entertaining two or twenty. After a delicious meal prepared in the modern and spacious kitchen (eat-in by the way, not that you’ll need the extra seating) you can take your pick of where to retire to next: the grand corner living room with open views that include Central Park and the Frick Museum; the state-of-the art media room for movie night, or the window-wrapped library ideal for enjoying your favorite brandy or pinot noir along with a good book.
And while two guest bedrooms complete the layout of the main upper floor, the lower level is sleep heaven. The large corner Master Bedroom Suite has his-and-her bathrooms and a beautiful windowed dressing room; 4 additional bedrooms with 2 bathrooms and a Maid’s suite will ensure that everyone gets their own personal slumber sanctuary. There’s even an enormous sun-drenched family/playroom to gently ease you into the day before heading up to the main living area.
Glass-paneled stairwalls and herringbone mahogany parquet throughout are just a few of the many elegant touches Sotheby’s agents Dominic Longcroft and Stan Ponte can share with you on a tour of this $26 million 6+bedroom, 6+bathroom Upper East Side gem. But don’t wait too long to make this your destination, because rarely does an apartment of this size in a condominium come on the market!
