Property Description

Iconic Lake Merritt Penthouse

How many glamorous penthouses offer ease of outdoor living?  You will appreciate this rare opportunity to own a penthouse, rich in architectural detail, with a private outdoor terrace suitable for gracious entertaining.  Located in the landmark Bellevue-Staten, listed in the National Register of Historic Places, this Art Deco unit is truly one of a kind!

An arched entry opens to a stunning living room with the original cast fireplace and two picture windows offering magnificent views of lovely Lake Merritt, a natural treasure and home to a myriad of recreational activities.  Parquet floors continue throughout, from the spacious dining room to the master suite, guest bedroom, and office.

The kitchen is tastefully updated as are the two bathrooms.  Wide arched windows grace nearly every room and offer lake park views.  The office has elaborate wainscoting and ample book shelves.  There is a laundry room and a utility room with specialized sink once used by a photography buff.

An atrium allows you to enjoy the out-of-doors during inclement weather or star gaze in comfort.  Just beyond the atrium is a terrace with plenty of space for cocktail parties or large dinner parties. 

What a life style this penthouse offers the fortunate buyer!  Secure valet parking and a 24 hour doorman are just a few of the perks you will enjoy.  Just step out the door and all of Lakeside Park and it's environs are within an easy stroll!  Restaurants, theater, shops, coffee, farmers market and so much more!
