If you require a discerning address and a sprawling condo residence where you can stretch out -- inside and outside -- then you've just found your new designer penthouse oasis. High atop the fabled Olcott -- one of Manhattan's most coveted, full-service, pre-war condominiums -- and located right up the street from Central Park, this well-scaled, impressively renovated two bedroom, two and a half bath stunner lives large inside, and even larger outside. Here you have a re-imagined, custom residence with a super-scaled, jumbo private terrace -- a stupendous outdoor retreat that serves as bonus, al fresco living and dining rooms -- complete with its own fireplace and grilling station -- and all with dramatic city views and a sweet glimpse of Central Park from its three big-sky exposures. From the moment you enter this home's large foyer/gallery, you'll know that you've discovered a rare and formidable diamond -- a sun-filled, corner, East and North facing, designer executed, resplendent penthouse smart-home with an impressive layout, elegant modern finishes, integrated audio/visual system, central ac, electronic blinds, and a stylish character uniquely its own. The corner lofted living room has a comfortable scale, soaring ceilings, gorgeous oak floors, custom lighting, two walls of over-sized windows, garden views, and ample room for a large dining table. This heart-of-the-home serves as the gateway to this feel-good penthouse's backyard -- a bright, private gardened sky-yard with ample room for planting, playing, relaxing, and starlight dining. With a gas-fed fireplace, a gas-fed integrated grilling station, an integrated planting shed, professional landscaping with irrigation system, an arbor of deciduous trees, and big lounging and dining space, life here is magical. The jumbo, windowed cook's kitchen is a culinary dream space designed by a professional baker, and offering custom cabinetry, vented Miele cooktop, dual Miele ovens, Caesar Stone quartz countertops, a big Miele refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, and a deep professional-grade sink with top-line hardware. Gracefully complementing the trophy kitchen is the large dining bar -- perfectly practical, and seamlessly open to the living area -- allowing for easy living and refined entertaining. Serving the public rooms of this gracious penthouse is the designer powder room -- a classic beauty with custom, marble, radiant-heated mosaic floor, and a cleverly designed entry to this expansive residence's private laundry room (with large washer and vented dryer by Whirlpool). The East-facing master bedroom suite is worthy of the name -- a king-sized abode offering a custom designed, integrated home office (can be transformed to create a bonus walk-in closet), and an en suite designer marble bath with dual sinks, generous vanity storage, a radiant-heated marble floor, and a step-in shower. The guest bedroom is large, East-facing, and ideal for all of your growing needs. Comfortable and peaceful, this room, too, boasts soaring ceilings, custom, integrated closets and drawer systems, and is well served by its own marble bath with tub and radiant-heated floor. The Olcott is a well-regarded, full service, 1920's building famously reinvented by renowned international designer, Andres Escobar. Supremely situated by Central Park, this princely penthouse is located near most every area dining, shopping, and cultural destination -- not to mention many convenient transportation options. With a gloriously restored, grand lobby, supremely attentive around-the-clock staff, and boasting a plethora of amenities including an impressive fitness room, private dining room, play room, cold storage, bicycle storage, and individual storage bins, the Olcott has it all. Penthouse paradiso awaits.
