Bienvenue la maison. In any language, the penthouse at 323 East 52nd street is a magnificent marriage of modernity and charm. There is nothing else quite like it on the market. You'll find yourself on a beautiful tree-lined street in Midtown East, but all the details, large and small, transform you to another place and time. There is an old-world grandeur that is impossible to escape. This chic boutique condo only has 4 residences, giving it a very private feel. While this is a new development, it's neither sterile nor cold like so many of the projects that dot the cityscape. Instead, the Penthouse radiates elegance and sophistication. What makes it so special? Maybe it's the French-engineered oak flooring, the custom Florense Brazilian kitchen, the multiple outdoor spaces, the oversized windows, or the chic eco-friendly fireplace. Or maybe it's the more naturalistic elements like the bright and airy feel to each well-proportioned room. The home is brilliantly configured on three levels, which separates out the public spaces from the private ones. Three bedrooms are positioned on the 5th floor, well removed from the living and entertaining spaces above. Reachable from either the keyed elevator or internal staircase, these bedrooms are laid out to maximize efficiency and privacy. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms both face south and have ample closet space. The northern portion of this floor contains the stunning primary suite, which features a luxurious en-suite bathroom, two walk-in closets, and a private outdoor space. The 6th floor is a perfectly executed tour de force of modern living. There is a seamless flow between the living room, open kitchen, dining area, and powder room, which are all on the south side of this floor. The north side has a den that can be used as a 4th bedroom, which includes an outdoor space, an en-suite bath, a fireplace, and a good-sized closet. Atop the apartment awaits its piece de resistance a tranquil oasis with almost 1,000 square feet of sumptuous outdoor space, complete with an outdoor kitchen, grill, and pre-wired for a potential hot tub.
