Spanning a full floor and stretching to 6,548 sq. ft. (608 sq. m.) with 336 sq. ft. (31 Sq. M.) of private outdoor space and offering 100' of contiguous rooms and two balconies with south exposure, Penthouse 17 at 109 East 79 is a magnificent residence meticulously designed by Steven Harris Architects. Offering five bedrooms and a library, five ensuite bathrooms, and a powder room, this gracious home features 10'2" ceilings and south, east, north and west exposures. Elegant architectural details and materials throughout include expansive casement style windows in a white bronze finish, 4" wide rift and quarter sawn American white oak flooring set in a chevron pattern in all living areas, recessed panel stile and rail doors with burnished nickel Nanz hardware, and custom plaster cornices in all primary rooms, hallways, vestibules, primary bathrooms, and powder rooms.

Through a private and keyed entry vestibule finished with honed St. Clair marble flooring and wire brushed rift cut European white oak wall paneling with integrated closets, residents are greeted by a secure steel and tempered art glass entry door leading into a stately entry gallery. The entertaining wing includes a gracious living room with a gas fireplace, a library, a grand dining room, a corner windowed eat-in kitchen, and two south-facing balconies with views of East 79th Street, Park Avenue, and the midtown Manhattan skyline.

The kitchen, custom-designed by Steven Harris Architects, is outfitted in hand-painted custom Italian cabinetry with polished nickel trim, honed Imperial Danby marble slab countertops and backsplashes, and a custom stainless steel island with a Nordic Gray marble slab countertop. Professional-grade appliances include a 60" Wolf 6-burner range, wall oven, speed oven, and fully-vented range hood; two Sub-Zero refrigerators with integrated freezer drawers and a full-height wine refrigerator; Miele dishwasher; and two Julien stainless steel undermount sinks with InSinkErator disposals and Dornbracht faucets. A separate pantry offers an additional dishwasher by Miele and an additional sink. An adjacent laundry room with a sink is outfitted with a high capacity LG washer and dryer that vents to the exterior. A separate windowed utility room provides additional convenience.

The bedroom wing offers tranquil and picturesque north and east views over gardens and landmarked townhouses below. The primary bedroom suite features three oversized walk-in closets, a windowed dressing room, a morning kitchen, and an east-facing wall of casement-style windows. The windowed primary bathroom is outfitted with honed Olympic Danby stone slab full-height walls and floors; a custom acid etched mirror vanity with an Olympic Danby stone slab countertop, nickel trim, and Lucite drawer pulls; recessed chrome-trimmed medicine cabinets featuring integrated lighting; and a Da Vinci freestanding soaking tub. Additional features include a separate nickel framed stall shower in fluted glass with a stone bench and a Duravit water closet.

Secondary bedrooms are generously proportioned and feature ensuite bathrooms clad in Honed Nestos Grey stone full-height tile walls and floors, a custom floating millwork vanity with a Nestos Grey slab countertop, and either a stall shower enclosed with frameless ribbed glass or a Kaldewei Puro undermount tub with a Nestos Grey slab tub deck and apron. Dornbracht chrome fixtures and a Duravit water closet complete these refined spaces.

The powder room provides a striking focal point with a floating vanity with a honed Maya quartzite slab countertop, custom integral sink, and matching door surrounds and base details along with Dornbracht fittings in a platinum finish and a Duravit water closet.

Additional thoughtful residence features include pre-wiring for home automation, pre-wired shade pockets in every room, VRF individually zoned heating and cooling, and a discreet service entrance.
