Moreover, the penthouse offers an astonishing 3,500 additional square feet of outdoor space, including a magnificent rooftop terrace complete with a gas fireplace, outdoor seating, and awe-inspiring views of the city skyline. Multiple smaller terraces throughout the residence further enhance the connection to the outdoors.
The primary suite is a haven of luxury, featuring its own loggia terrace, a cozy gas fireplace, and a lavish bathroom adorned with a rain shower, heated tile floors, marble counters, and a spacious dressing room. Every design element has been thoughtfully curated, from gilded chandeliers to natural brass fixtures, ensuring a seamless blend of elegance and refinement.
Perfect for entertaining, the penthouse showcases an open floor plan that seamlessly connects a living room, dining room, and great room, all embraced by floor-to-ceiling windows. The custom-designed Molteni & C Dada kitchen stands as a testament to culinary excellence, featuring a massive island, marble countertops, and a complete suite of top-of-the-line Gaggenau appliances. Additionally, a second living room with a wet bar provides a perfect space for socializing.
For those seeking a tranquil retreat or a home office, a den offers additional lounging space.
Beyond the penthouse itself, the building offers an array of exceptional amenities, including a fitness studio, basketball court, soccer pitch, playroom, game room, and a lounge complete with a catering kitchen and an expansive dining area.
