The sprawling 16th floor penthouse of the Rosario Candela-designed 720 Park Avenue has just dropped onto the market for a cool $25 million. The lovely interiors are what one expects from an iconic prewar co-op, but it's the floorplan that really steals the spotlight. The palatial pad has three terraces, a 31-foot-long living room, a wood-paneled library, and a formal dining room with a bar. The large kitchen has a service entry, a maid's room, a butler's pantry, and, somewhat oddly, space for an office. There are two bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms, and the master suite has his-and-hers mahogany walk-in closets and marble bathrooms.
Design elements include restored original moldings, floor-to-ceiling casement windows, French doors leading to the terraces, and two additional planting terraces. There's also a wood-burning fireplace, wine cellar, Creston audio system, and five-zone central air conditioning. Not too shabby, eh?
We're unsure who the seller is (city records proved unhelpful), but if you have intel, please do send it to the tipline.
