Welcome to the highest penthouse in New York City

“To have all of Manhattan unfurl below you in this way is nothing short of extraordinary"

If you’re looking for luxury, the penthouse of 432 Park Avenue in New York takes things to a new level – literally. For, 3,977 square-feet and designed by famed interior designer Kelly Behun, this is the highest apartment in the city, and towers 1,224 feet above the streets below.

The stunning penthouse is bathed in southern light and boasts panoramic views of nearly every New York City landmark, including the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Central Park, Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, Lower Manhattan skyline, and New York Harbor out to the Atlantic Ocean. This list goes on.

Vast 10-foot square windows draw inspiration from 432 Park Avenue’s iconic architecture, and Behun said of the development: “My goal was to create a timelessly elegant space that feels warm and comfortable.

“My favourite aspect of the apartment has to be the views through those oversize windows,” she continued “To have all of Manhattan unfurl below you in this way is nothing short of extraordinary, and nothing I would do inside could ever upstage that, so I just sought to create a warm embrace from which to enjoy it.”

The penthouse comprises three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a powder room, library, gas and wood-burning fireplace, laundry room, service entrance separate from the elevator landing and formal entrance gallery.

And, like other residences within the building, the penthouse features a windowed eat-in kitchen with marble breakfast bar, oak flooring and a master bathroom featuring statuary book-matched marble floor and walls, a freestanding soaking tub and a 1,200-pound solid cubic Bianco Sivec marble vanity.

Even outside of the penthouse itself, the building is packed with luxury amenities. Hand-picked staff man a swimming pool, billiards room, library, private cinema and a private restaurant helmed by Michelin-starred chef Shaun Hergatt.

On-site climate-controlled wine cellars, studio apartments for guests and staff, and valet parking services are also available – if you didn’t feel as though you were flying high enough already. Surprisingly, it’s price on request – but, if you need to ask…
