Stunning four bedroom triple mint condition prewar condominium Penthouse with extraordinary light and amazing wrap around terraces. Perched high atop the Briarcliff this sun drenched residence was decorated by the legendary interior decorator Mario Buatta and boasts a massive living room with two wood-burning fireplaces and soaring barrel-vaulted 19.6-foot ceilings.

Absolutely ideal for the grandest and most glamorous entertaining, the apartment also features an unusual windowed entry vestibule, a big gallery, a cozy library with a wood burning fireplace and a wonderful dining room that comfortably seats thirty guests and also includes a wood burning fireplace. Adjacent there is a conveniently located powder room.

All of these lovely public rooms are south facing and incorporate custom designed lacquer portals, hand carved wood moldings and French doors that open onto a gorgeous and beautifully tended irrigated and planted terrace. A fabulous outdoor fireplace, elaborate decorative stonework, verdant plantings and a very pretty trellised gazebo distinguish this unusual and unexpected garden in the sky.

The sprawling private quarters are comprised of a marvelous terraced corner master bedroom suite, also replete with a wood burning fireplace, a giant marble bathroom and an incredible dressing room with amazing closet space. Beyond there are three further bedrooms all with ensuite marble baths and very ample closets, plus an upstairs office also with corner exposures and terraces.

The residence is impeccably serviced by a large kitchen and pantry. Adjacent there is also a cheery breakfast room, a dedicated laundry room and two staff bedrooms with a bath.
