After a year of being off the market, Penthouse A at 20 East End Avenue in Yorkville recently hit the market again with a $39.5 million price tag — an increase of $4.5 million from its previous list price.
Developed by Corigin Real Estate Group and Florida East Coast Realty and designed by renowned architect Robert A.M. Stern, 20 East End Avenue was envisioned as a “a bespoke property emanating luxury and elegance” with Penthouse A being the apex of Stern’s vision.
Penthouse A sprawls out over 6,050 square feet with another 4,542 square feet of exterior space. The residence has five-bedrooms and five-and-a-half-baths as well as an additional library and family room, a formal dining room and an exclusive rooftop terrace.
It also boasts ceiling heights up to 12 feet, 3 interior wood burning fireplaces, and solid Appalachian oak herringbone flooring throughout.
The home offers panoramic 360-degree views of Manhattan and the East River through expansive casement windows.
Incidentally, Penthouse B — the five-bedroom 6,292 square feet unit with an additional 328 square feet of exterior space — sold last month for a reputed $27.9 million.
Yorkville, which runs between 79th and 96th Streets and Third Avenue to the East River, is one of the most affluent neighborhoods in New York City. The recent addition of the Second Avenue Subway has made the area a hotbed of residential activity and was named one of the top 10 “hottest neighborhoods” of 2017.
The area has a timeless New York neighborhood feel, with many mom and pop shops and relatively affordable walk-ups — although inventory has grown tighter and prices haven inched upwards as more New Yorkers “discover” the area.
