Property Description

Unique Designer Penthouse Duplex with Balcony and Terrace Welcome to this stunning designer penthouse in prime Carnegie Hill, a 1-bedroom, 2-bathroom duplex with two outdoor spaces and a collection of custom finishes. Imagined by the architect and designer team of Christine Inukai and Tim Steele, this one-of-a-kind home blends industrial textures with bold contemporary themes. Polished composite concrete floors and stainless steel accents are ideal counterpoints to organic elements like custom wood built-ins and a stunning wood-burning stone fireplace. Natural light pours into the home through oversized windows adorned with automated shades from Lutron and SunMaster. On the lower level, the home flows past a functional entry area and into an open-concept living room, dining room, and kitchen. The living area leads out onto a charming brick balcony, while the dining area features built-in banquette seating. The kitchen is equipped with sleek countertops, custom red Poggenpohl cabinets, a Franke water filtration system, a stainless steel sink with a Dornbracht faucet, and a suite of high-end stainless steel appliances from Bertazzoni, Liebherr, and Bosch. Three closets, a Bosch washer/dryer, and a full bathroom with a walk-in shower complete the lower level. Up a custom steel staircase, the upper level contains a tranquil sky-lit bedroom with couples' walk-in closets, a custom Mark Jupiter centerpiece headboard, and a private en-suite with a large vanity and a walk-in rain shower. Finishing the home is a secluded rooftop terrace with outdoor wine fridge and patio furniture. 170 East 88th Street is a Carnegie Hill co-op located just four blocks from Central Park and Museum Mile. The building is moments from a variety of restaurants, bars, cafes, grocery stores, and shops, and it is close to the Guggenheim Museum, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Nearby subway lines include 4/5/6/Q. Pets and pieds-a-terre are welcome. Pets accepted on a case-by-case basis by the board.

Carnegie Hill | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Carnegie Hill is a small neighborhood at the northern tip of the Upper East Side that borders Central Park. It is steeped in history, great wealth, architecture and culture. It is known for its world-class museums and its rows of historic mansions. Nothing much changes here as the entire area is landmarked, preventing the proliferation of high-rise developments. Thus the buildings stay a human scale, the sky is aplenty and the neighborhood kind of feels like a small town to its long time residents.

The name Carnegie Hill is derived from the industrial magnate Andrew Carnegie, when Carnegie decided to build himself a mansion at 91st Street and Fifth Avenue….

Carnegie Hill is a family neighborhood with old fashioned upper crust money. The mid-rise co-ops that line the avenues are among the most prestigious addresses in the city. The avenues are lined with small restaurants, boutique shops

The residential towers that have proliferated on the eastside of Third Avenue in the East 90s simply do not exist between Lexington and Fifth.
