240 East 55th Street


Welcome home to this dreamy terrace penthouse. The stunning true one-bedroom penthouse with a coveted wraparound terrace featuring ample light, an inviting layout, and a prime Manhattan location. Enter the home to be immediately greeted by the large, 23-foot long living/dining space, allowing for flexible and open modern living. You are surrounded on all sides by the wraparound terrace, allowing for pleasant views of your planters, gardens, and the city beyond. The kitchen, which features custom cabinetry, granite countertops, and GE stainless steel appliances, is fit for a chef. The master bedroom is cleverly outfitted with a Murphy bed for space optimization but could easily be replaced with a king-sized bed or simply use the bed in place. And an incredible amount of closet space. The bathroom, which has been smartly re-designed with pocket doors, allows it to either be two bathrooms (one powder room for guests and one bathroom with sink and shower) or open it up to be a full master bathroom with two sinks. The piece-de-resistance is the wraparound terrace, which is large enough to accommodate a barbecue, ample furniture, and gardens. City views complement the light-filled interiors. The spacious one-bedroom is located in the heart of Midtown East with easy access to all areas of the city. Bloomingdales, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Equinox, Rockefeller Center, and Central Park are all within walking distance, as are multiple subway lines (E/M, 4/5/6, N/Q/R). The building features a part-time doorman, common laundry and bike storage, and a live-in super. Washer/dryers are allowed with board approval. The building allows cats (sorry, no dogs), subletting after one year of ownership, and pied-a-terres, guarantors, co-purchasing, gifts, and guarantors, all on a case-by-case basis. SHOWINGS ARE BY APPT ONLY
