Grand Terraced Duplex with River Views
This residence is on Beekman Place, located between 49th & 51st Streets along the East River, in one of Manhattan’s most prestigious pre-war co-ops. It was built by John D. Rockefeller in 1929 and has amenities such as a swimming pool, basketball court, squash court, fitness center and parking garage, in addition to 24 hour doormen. It feels like a wide mansion contained on 2 floors instead of 4 or 5 and has its own private street entrance as well as one from the building’s lobby. The first floor features a grand living room with a fabulous terrace overlooking the River. There is also a very large dining room and a beautifully paneled library. The large eat-in kitchen is a home chef’s dream. A dramatic oval staircase leads to the second floor where a huge master bedroom with wood burning fireplace overlooks the River. There are three additional bedrooms on this floor. Grand in scale, this apartment offers those seeking privacy, tranquility and an abundance of space, the ideal home.
