This spectacular terraced Penthouse is Perched high atop one of the finest limestone-sheathed mansions. Steps from Fifth Avenue, the full service Pre-War Condominium was designed by renowned architect Horace Trumbauer in the neo-French Classic style. The 42-foot wide mansion is one of the few remaining examples of the architect's "great houses" in New York. A private elevator Entry Hall leads to a dramatic two-story Gallery which adjoins a light-flooded Ballroom, each with a wood-burning fireplace.
