It's Free to Look: Serious Parkwood

It’s vast and sunny, looks quite fresh-smelling, and is full of open spaces—it’s much like a prairie, only with all the convenience and design a person could ever need, and then some. Stribling describes this duplex in the Parkwood as having a private elevator, an “airy configuration,” a glass atrium with views of the Empire State Building, a 108-square-foot balcony and a 287-square-foot private terrace. It’s “sensationally large,” and even the “closet space abounds.”

Granted, there’s a custom kitchen with Calacatta marble counters, rift-cut oak cabinetry, 4-inch-wide fumed white oak floors, 18 ribbed-glass passage door transoms and audio pre-wiring. And, between the three bathrooms, there are full-frame showers, lacquered vanities, floor-to-ceiling tiling, and various species of porcelain and marble. Yet the top-notch kitchen appliances, and even the “6 ft Tea for Two tub” in the master bathroom will not be able to hold your attention for long, as those Empire State views turn your gaze heavenward.

For $4.4 million, you may appreciate all the wonderful ways of being swept off your feet.
