This sensational Pre-War terraced penthouse is located atop a limestone-sheathed apartment building which is truly one-of-a-kind. Designed in French neo-classical style, the 42-foot wide plush pad is among the few stunning architectural residences by noted architect Horace Trumbauer located in New York.
Sprawled on 5,190 square foot, the lavishly fitted condo featuring 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms has a grand foyer with private elevator access and leads to a two-story gallery with wood-burning fireplace and an adjacent light-splashed sitting room with a wood-burning fireplace as well. Restored by museum-trained artists to its original architecture, the luxury abode boasts 23-foot high-raised ceilings, Versailles-flooring, 18th-century French panels and original wood-burning fireplaces. The majestic master bedroom situated upstairs has a second bath and an office while a spacious corner living room is next to two of the bedrooms, each having its own en suite bath.
The terrace which faces the south has lush vegetation and boasts sweeping views of Central Park and beyond. The ask price has not dropped so far, despite the scarcity of potential buyers. It is still $29.5M.

In a townhouse complex, multiple physical houses are combined into a single architectural building. Each unit owner owns an identified plot of land and the building affixed to it, but that building is physically part of a larger building that spans lots. There is a continuous roof and foundation and a single wall divides adjacent townhouses. If there is an apartment below not owned by owner of townhouse it is not a townhouse just a bi-level apartment, condominium. Legally, this is very similar to detached houses, but because of the intertwining of interests in the single architectural building, a homeowner’s association is required.”^
