Newly Listed!! Luxury meets old world charm! This beautifully renovated duplex penthouse loft has fantastically large entertaining space and a stunning 600 sf private roof terrace. Currently configured as a one bedroom, 2 bath with guest room/home office, this apartment is easily converted to a two or three bedroom.New, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, washer/dryer, Jacuzzi tub, as well as restored white maple flooring through-out, further complement this space. The renovation also boasts state-of-the-art zoned lighting and media/sound systems, central air and a custom designed steel and natural maple staircase which leads to a rooftop oasis. This upstairs sanctuary includes private indoor and outdoor living with unobstructed N/E/S views which feature NY's most remarkable architecture (Empire, Woolworth & Con Edison buildings, to name a few). Watch movies, play games or enjoy footage of your last trip from your own private roof deck fully outfitted with detachable screen, outdoor B&W speakers, volume control and AV Block. This apartment's corner set-up is ideal for privacy. The deck, done with Ipe wood, has both built in benches and a large -- almost shed-like -- storage space, neatly hidden from view. On the main level enjoy a southern exposure from the three large arched windows and three skylights -- allowing the sun to pour in all day and all year long. The original arched windows, cast-iron columns, barrel vaulted ceilings & exposed brick complement this modern renovation beautifully and remind us of the old world charm for which University Mews building is known. 39 E 12th Street -- University Mews -- is a full-service building with 24hr door service, live-in super, 2 elevators & a full-time porter. Situated on arguably one of the Villages best blocks, you are steps from NYC's best Green Market, Whole Foods & Union Square's transportation hub. Sorry, NO NEW DOGS. Shown by appointment.
