Calling all bibliophiles


Along Central Park West, a corner penthouse that any wealthy bibliophile would appreciate has hit the market with a steep $5 million asking price. The 2,100-square-foot apartment has been renovated to feature a loft-like aesthetic and there are custom built-in bookshelves to greet you at almost every turn.

A lengthy foyer with industrial-chic columns and accent brick walls leads into the light-filled living room that’s been furnished with 13-foot ceilings, exposed beams, bookshelves galore, and large windows that give view to Central Park and the city’s skyline.


Take two steps up from the living room and you’ll enter the elevated kitchen that’s fitted with marble countertops, built-in Viking and Sub-Zero appliances; and more bookshelves, of course.

The master bedroom comes with an en-suite bathroom along with sleek storage space and stunning views. There are a total of three bedrooms, two bathrooms, at least three large closets, and a washer/dryer machine.
