Cloud-Piercing Duplex Condominiums Are New York Status Symbols

Townhouses are exquisite examples of New York City’s architectural legacy. These multilevel residential structures feature expansive living areas and offer incredible privacy. Some developers are taking all of the benefits of a townhouse and transporting them to the sky in duplex condominiums. Besides exceptional privacy, these residences also boast penthouse-level skyline views and offer access to the full suite of building amenities.

Located in the heart of Manhattan’s Upper West Side neighbourhood, 555 West End Avenue offers one-of-a-kind residences with unmatched architectural magnificence from the building’s origin as a historic Beaux Arts private school.

Currently on the market for $22.5 million, the Terrace Penthouse is an expansive 4-bed, 4.5-bath duplex with 2,800 square feet of private outdoor space across two levels: a sweeping wraparound terrace with river and skyline views, and a full-floor rooftop terrace. The interior living areas are spread across two full floors – the kitchen, living and great rooms on the second level, while the bedroom suites, den and laundry occupy the private lower level. The penthouse is accessed via direct elevator entry for ultimate privacy.

The development offers residents access to the Upper West Side’s world-class dining, elite private schools, and famous cultural attractions, and also a peaceful respite on a tree- and brownstone-lined street.
