This "English cottage garden in the sky" boasts a large Mimosa tree, multi-level planting areas of roses, rhododendrons, and hydrangeas, a water fountain, and separate areas for dining and relaxing.
The Penthouse has a conservatory, solarium and terrace, and offers 90 feet of frontage on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan with views of Central Park and the George Washington Bridge.
The master bedroom opens onto the 16-foot glass conservatory inspired by the Paris Crystal Palace, the Cooper Hewitt Museum, and San Francisco conservatories.
The terrace has been featured in many garden books, magazines, and tours, and was designed by the seller, Pamela M. Scurry, who owned a wicker and antiques shop in the neighborhood.
The 11-room residence, described in the listing as "more a lifestyle than just a home," is located in a building designed in the French Renaissance-style with "an opulent marble lobby that retains its original Old World aesthetic."
The master bathroom is enclosed inside the glass conservatory and features an enormous oval bathtub, which boasts an antique brass shower fixture that was made in San Francisco. The bathroom also includes period moldings and a floor made of tiny white hexagonal tiles reminiscent of the bathrooms in historic Paris hotels.
