Rare Fifth Avenue duplex penthouse with panoramic Central Park views and endless wrap terraces. 18/19A occupies the top two floors of a premier pre-war Fifth Avenue coop. As you step off the elevator into the formal living and dining rooms, three exposures allow for panoramic views of the Park, the reservoir and the skylines of Central Park West & South. Wrought-iron French doors leading out to the terraces have been restored to their original splendor, displaying a stunning vista that will take your breath away. Surrounded by terraces, the space truly feels like a private oasis in the city. This ten room home is in mint condition and has four bedrooms and four full bathrooms. Both the large living and dining room feature wood burning fireplaces and the dining room also conceals a large wine cellar behind elegant wood panels. The spacious, mint chef's kitchen has state-of-the-art appliances and expansive counter space. Adjoining the kitchen is a large laundry room with a full-size washer and dryer. In addition, this floor hosts a wood-paneled library, a powder room, an office and a wet bar. There are three terraces on the main floor, accessible from both the living and dining rooms, creating a perfect setting for entertaining. Pre-war details abound, including herringbone floors throughout in pristine condition.

The top floor features an expansive wrap terrace accessible from three of the four bedrooms, with plenty of room for outdoor dining on the East Terrace, 40 feet by 9 feet 8 inches. Sunlight streams into the huge master bedroom suite, which boasts a wood-burning fireplace, formal sitting area, dressing room and an en-suite bath. Three additional bedrooms, multiple walk-in closets and two full baths provide plenty of room for family and guests.

Also included in the sale is the adjoining one bedroom, two bath apartment on the 18th floor which also has Central Park views.
