A Penthouse Overlooking the Beloved American Museum of Natural History Lists for $23.5M
How much would you pay to live in a stunning penthouse overlooking the beloved American Museum of Natural History? If the answer is $23.5 million then you're in luck. Brown Harris Stevens has just listed the full-floor until at 101 West 78th Street and it doesn't disappoint.
Built in the late 19th century and designed by architect Emile M. Gruwe, developers for the project conversion announced the launch for sales of 101 West 78th Street earlier this year but didn't unveil the building's singular penthouse until now.
The 4,742-square-feet residence includes four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms and several spacious living areas. The chef's kitchen features custom white cabinetry designed by Stephen Sills, who collaborated with Smallbone of Devizes on the kitchen and is also responsible for the building's lobby.
A 3,398 square-foot terrace wraps around the entire unit allowing guests an almost 360-degree view of the city. The home also offers a private 2,721 square-foot rooftop complete with a cooking/dining area, fire pit, sun deck, and garden.
