Introducing Penthouse 2, one of the three newly constructed penthouses atop The Astor.

With over 4,800 square feet of interior space spread across two floors, Penthouse 2 (asking $13,950,000) boasts five bedrooms, seven baths, two gas-burning fireplaces and two terraces.

Before arriving, residents of this early 1900s conversion – ideally situated on Broadway between 75th and 76th streets – will be greeted with an opulent blend of modern and classic design. Bronze and glass doors lead to a marble-clad lobby with mosaic tile floors, hand-finished fresco panels, metal detailing and antique-finished mirrors.

Upon entering the brand-new penthouse home, you’ll notice exquisite 5” wide rift and quartered stained white-oak herringbone floors which transition to a linear pattern in the bedrooms. Reflecting The Astor’s prestigious pre-war heritage, new trim, casework, and crown moldings feature 8” high painted wood baseboards and 5-1/2” wide door casings, alongside solid-core, 8’ tall paneled doors adorned with satin nickel hardware by Valli & Valli.

The kitchen offers seamless integration into the great room and access to a wraparound terrace, perfect for entertaining or quiet enjoyment. Custom paneled millwork in matte white lacquer, with islands finished in stained quartered white oak, provides a sleek and sophisticated backdrop. The countertops and backsplash are crafted from polished Calacatta select marble, featuring exquisite waterfall stone details on the islands. Culinary excellence is ensured with a suite of top-tier appliances: a Blanco undermount stainless steel sink with a brushed nickel faucet by Lefroy Brooks, a fully concealed Gaggenau refrigerator and freezer, Miele gas cooktop, and a Fisher & Paykel fully vented hood. The kitchen also includes a Miele electric convection wall oven and a speed oven with microwave function, alongside two Gaggenau dishwashers and two full-height Sub-Zero wine refrigerators, all seamlessly concealed within the millwork. An Insinkerator garbage disposal completes the functionality of this gourmet space, ensuring it is as practical as it is beautiful.

Both primary and secondary bathrooms feature Lefroy Brooks polished nickel fixtures, ensuring a continuity of luxury and design throughout. The primary bathroom floors glisten with Calacatta Gold, Nero Gold, and Tundra Grey marble tiles, complemented by walls clad in Calacatta Gold and Nero Gold marble tiles, accented by Haisa marble mosaics. A custom cerused and grey stained white oak double vanity comes with a Calacatta Gold countertop, alongside free-standing Kohler bathtubs set against polished marble slab decks. Frameless glass enclosures for shower and water closet areas, Duravit by Philippe Starck water closets, and radiant heated floors complete this sanctuary. The secondary bathroom contrasts with honed Glassos tile flooring and ceramic wall tiles, highlighted by stone mosaic and Glassos chair rail accents. Custom lacquer vanities with Glassos slab countertops and Kohler undermount tubs or showers with frameless glass doors maintain the essence of refined elegance.

The powder room includes 5” wide rift and quartered stained white oak herringbone floors and is accentuated with a Nordic Grey stone slab and mirrored feature wall, creating a striking visual contrast. At its center, a polished nickel vanity pedestal boasts a sleek Glassos countertop, paired with a Kohler undermount porcelain sink. The Duravit by Philippe Starck water closet adds a touch of contemporary design, while Lefroy Brooks polished nickel fixtures and accessories complete the space.

The residence boasts 1,702 sf of private outdoor space with North, South, East, and West exposures, perfect for entertaining or serene moments of solitude. The al fresco haven comes with an outdoor kitchen equipped with a gas grill, sink and hose bib, catering to any culinary endeavor. Adding to the allure, one of the private terraces extends off the primary bedroom, offering an intimate outdoor retreat for moments of relaxation or morning reflections. This harmonious blend of expansive views and luxurious fixtures makes the outdoor space an unparalleled urban oasis in the sky.
