Madison Avenue Penthouse
Interior designer: Rosane Balistreri
This exceptional Upper East Side Madison Ave Penthouse Coop apartment is first class in everyway. It offers views from all points of the compass. A design for the removal of a section 9'-0" by 14'-0" of masonry exterior wall was performed at the West so that its owners and their family may watch the change of the seasons reflected in the landscape of Central Park from their living room. The change of the quality and color of the sun light on the buildings of the skyline of Manhattan may also be observed from the bedroom windows overlooking the city to the South as the sun circles over the city. Soft North light filters into the living and dining area filling the spacious open plan of this residence.
The kitchen was expanded from a typical galley style to a large eat-in gourmet of approximately 220 sq. ft. Entered from the informal entry; this room consists of rift cut, white oak cabinets, polished & matt finished porcelain ceramic floors, that look like limestone but easier to care for, pantry, kid's coat closet, 2 dishwashers and 2 sinks and an breakfast peninsula. This room is the center of the house with the dining room on one side and the family room on the other both entered through the glass pocket doors which are most often kept open.
The dining room was configured to hold a large dining table that seats upwards of 12 people with built-in walnut, glass and marble serving bar & bronze sink.
The family room on the other side of the kitchen has a commodious leather seating area and built-in entertainment unit with large flat screen TV that is very child friendly when entertaining.
The master suite contains a luxurious stone finished double shower bathroom, walk-in his and her closets, built-in large screen TV and dressing room.
Upon completion of the combination of these two penthouse apartments; the generous, new floor plan allows a family to occupy the entire top floor in the heart of New York City with all of the space and conveniences of a suburban retreat.
