A seven-story, glass-clad penthouse that architect Rafael Viñoly designed on the Upper East Side, is now on the market for a whopping $50 million. The townhouse is remarkably similar to the renderings we first got a peek at a little over three years ago.
The seven-story townhouse mixes commercial/office space with residential space, with the former located on the lower levels of the house, and the latter on the upper floors. The East 64th Street building features a distinct facade made up of a curved glass section that is meant to maximize views for the house’s residents.
The residential portion of the building begins on the fourth floor; the living room here has a 34-foot floor-to-ceiling window, which leads to a lovely outdoor space. The kitchen and dining room are also located on this floor, and the former comes with two fridges, two dishwashers, tons of storage space, and a wine cellar among other features.
A media room, and three bedrooms (all with en-suite bathrooms) are located on the fifth floor. The master suite is located on the sixth floor. The suite features a walk-in closet and a marble master bath that has a double vanity, and a separate shower. The top floor has a spacious roof deck with Upper East Side views all around.
Aside from that, the house has an elevator that connects all the floors, central airconditioning, and bullet proof windows. In addition, Rafael Viñoly Architects are willing to work with the new owners of the home to customize the floors to their taste.
