BIG IS BEAUTIFUL

Buy this 17-room aerie at 1200 Fifth Ave. along Museum Mile and you’ll reside in what is said to be one of Manhattan’s largest penthouses. The triplex is a baronial 6,255 square feet and the wrap terraces come in at about 5,100 square feet. Along with dazzling views as far as the eye can see from this Emory Roth prewar condo, there are 9.5-foot beamed ceilings and brand-spanking new oversized triple-pane windows. Restored to nothing less than mint quality in 2006, the penthouse features a huge living room with a decorative fireplace, a formal dining room, a library with 14-foot ceilings with its own kitchenette and bath—along with six BRs and 9.5 baths and maid’s room. The windowed kitchen is filled with the finest appliances from Wolf, Miele and Sub-Zero and custom cabinetry. Bathrooms feature Waterworks, Porcher, Kallista and Toto fixtures. Fitness center, individual storage, bicycle room. $19.5 million.

CENTRAL PARK CROWN JEWEL

This 10-room Upper West Side beauty is inside one of the city’s most beloved landmarks, the Dakota. Perfectly located at 72nd Street and Central Park West, the legendary apartment co-op was built in the late 1800s and designed by the same architect as the Plaza Hotel. This unit’s floor plan is the original and most of the Old World details remain intact. Sprawling at some 4,600 square feet, the four-BR residence also features 13-foot high ceilings, six wood-burning fireplaces, a formal dining room, an elegant parlor in addition to the huge living room and a lovely private balcony. The huge kitchen, brimming with luxe appliances from Sub-Zero, Southbend and Equator, is adjacent to a generously sized family room as well as a pantry. There’s a shaving closet, too. A rarity, this little alcove off a bedroom has a marble sink and mirror. $19.5 million.

“Buyers’ expectations are very high in New York,” says Nancy Ruddy of Cetra/Ruddy, the architecture and interior design firm. “Projects that out-perform the competition, like Sheffield57, our new entry in the condo market, are those that provide sophisticated design features and the highest quality materials.”
