IM Pei designed Penthouse Ascend to a private floor Penthouse with 360 views of the East River and spectacular city views. The six-room residence epitomizes sophistication, offering an expansive layout ideal for lavish entertaining and everyday comfort. Revel in breathtaking panoramic views of the river and city from a large sanctuary surrounded by a landscaped wrap terrace accessed by all principal rooms. A serene oasis suspended high above the tranquility of the river and lovely and quiet Beekman Place—a small two-block sanctuary within a busy city. Every facet of the residence exudes perfection, from the two wood-burning marble fireplaces in the living room to the inviting library and elegant formal dining room. A windowed chef's gourmet eat-in kitchen beckons culinary enthusiasts, while two primary bedrooms with ensuite baths provide private sanctuaries within this extraordinary abode. The sumptuous wrap terrace creates the ultimate privacy, outdoor living, and entertaining. Impeccable details abound, including incredible closets, a through-the-wall stereo system, and top-of-the-line finishes. The planted wrap terrace complements the interior space, which offers spectacular exposures to the north, south, east, and west. The current owners installed central air, and a storage bin is included with the purchase. Additional highlights include a marble master bath, hardwood floors, an elegant powder room, a mahogany wet bar with a refrigerator, and a keyed elevator for exclusive access to a private landing of the PH. The home's wet bar could be converted into a full bathroom. A washer and dryer is permitted in the pantry. The terrace has automatic irrigation and is landscaped beautifully. The Penthouse had only four owners and was initially constructed by William Zeckendorf Sr. for his private use. The PH also included Nicolas C. Forstmann as a resident. The building's former shareholders include Gloria Vanderbilt and IM Pei. 30 Beekman Place is a white-glove building with a newly renovated lobby, 24-hour doorman, live-in building manager, water purification system, gym, and basement storage. It was designed by George Pelham and is an elegant prewar cooperative with 38 units and oversized windows. The exclusive community of two blocks also has its own security patrol. Beekman Place is a beautiful tree-lined street with no commercial traffic, close to fine dining and shopping. Beekman Place, named after the Beekman family, who were very involved in NYC development, was established in 1860. The neighborhood has maintained its beautiful and quiet elegance.
