The Edgewater, 530 East 72nd Street, PHBR - Upper East Side, New York
Want to live in a "glittering grotto in the sky"? Or in a penthouse where President John Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol and the Rat Pack once played? Or better yet, be the owner of one of the most stunning luxury residences in Manhattan?You can, at Penthouse B, located at The Edgewater Cooperative (530 East 72nd Street). This sprawling, 3,200 sq ft (*appx.) four bedroom, four bathroom, two half-bathroom co-op with two wraparound terraces (totaling approximately 2,000 sq ft) has a storied history. Frank Sinatra was the original owner and helped to design the three story triplex, with floor-to-ceiling windows that capture breath-taking views of the East River from every room. Warhol tagged the penthouse as a "glittering grotto" thanks to its airy and glamorous environment. Sammy Davis, Jr. purportedly threw empty champagne glasses out the window. President Kennedy dropped by as did Marilyn Monroe; Mia Farrow lived there while married to Sinatra and probably twisted the night away with Peter Lawford and Dean Martin, frequent visitors, while filming the iconic movie, "Rosemary's Baby". The present is just as awesome as its past. The penthouse's sweeping, unobstructed views take in the East River, Queensboro Bridge, Roosevelt Island and beyond. Multiple chandeliers and 18' ceilings add to the drama of the home's design. The entire apartment was recently renovated and includes an exact duplicate of the Apple store's glass spiral staircase. The penthouse has NuVo whole home audio systems, iPad temperature and lighting controls, and motorized window shades; there are even solar panels. The first floor features a living space with a marble, wood-burning fireplace and beamed ceilings; a dining area that can seat ten; and a kitchen with stainless steel appliances, including a six burner stove, dishwasher and wine refrigerator. All of the bedrooms are good sized, with their own en-suite baths. Once the glassed-in, rooftop party room for Sinatra, the master bedroom suite on the third level was completely redone and now offers the homeowner a luxurious space for relaxation. The penthouse has several closets (including custom walk-ins), recessed lighting and luxury fixtures and finishes. As an added bonus, this apartment can be purchased with its own private staff quarters with full bath; sold separately at an additional cost.Described by StreetEasy as being "located on the very sought after 72nd Street", the Edgewater is a premier white glove building.
