The "magnificent renovated duplex" is located in a 1906 Charles Platt-designed building, and features, as its "dramatic center," a double-height living room with a wall of original floor-to-ceiling windows. Along with the library, the room makes for a "glorious entertainment space:"
The adjacent corner library is warmed by east and south sunlight and a wood-burning fireplace. Oak pocket doors open from the library into a large formal paneled dining room. These three rooms form a glorious entertainment space, accessible to the chef's windowed kitchen which is complete with solid oak & copper cabinetry, limestone floors, bar and pantry. A powder room is off the entry foyer. Also on the main living level is a sun-filled private bedroom wing with its own entrance.The asking price for this "jewel" is $7.5 million. · Listing: 131 East 66th Street, #10/11E [Brown Harris Stevens via StreetEasy]
