The exalted New York City habitat reigning over Beekman Place unveils heavenly high drama outside and cool and cultivated comforts inside. From one of the city’s finest pre-war buildings, an elevator welcomes you into a private landing that opens to an entrance gallery with a curved staircase and vignettes of skyscrapers and the East River, which expand to full-blown panoramas in the settings beyond. A soft palette of colors both complements and counterpoints the stunning Manhattan scenes, setting a bedazzling stage for important social gatherings. The majestic living room revels in the views from three sides, with a balcony facing east. On the opposite end, to the west on Beekman Place, sits the beautiful dining room, along with the kitchen and staff complex. Two bedrooms and the library are on the south, each also displaying splendid views of the river. An elevator and staircase reveal one of the most alluring attributes of the duplex, a private upper level devoted entirely to the master suite. Here, a blissful corner bedroom sanctum and futuristic spa bath present the owners with a sophisticated isle of calm to savor the spectacular wraparound wonders of the East River to the east, north, and south.
