Home to wealthy diplomats, fashionista millionaires, and dozens of other well-heeled New Yorkers, the classic co-op building 1185 Park Avenue boasts plenty of apartments with grand layouts and high design, but do any compare to the duplex penthouse with a 2,850-square-foot terrace? Unlikely. The home just hit the market for $27.5 million (plus a 2 percent flip tax). The terrace has its own kitchenette, an enclosed great room with a wood-burning fireplace, and a windowed gallery. On the main level, a 24-foot-tall domed foyer welcomes guests into a 34-foot-long gallery that leads to the living room, wood-paneled library, and formal dining room, with its original coffered ceiling and 700-bottle wine cellar.
In addition to the master suite?which has a private study, two full bathrooms, and a mahogany-paneled dressing room?there are three en-suite bedrooms with large closets. The huge chef's kitchen has new appliances and an eat-in breakfast room. The whole place has been modernized with zoned air-conditioning, new windows, new oak floors, radiant heat in all bathrooms, and a high-tech lighting and audio system.
