A striking penthouse at 440 E 57th St in the Sutton Place area of New York City is now for sale for $4.5 million with Compass, the real estate technology company that joined the Fortune 500 list this year after revolutionizing the industry with innovative digital tools and unique services.
The spacious abode has many distinguishing features, but perhaps none is more stately than a rare 432-bottle wine wall designed by “Joseph & Curtis Custom Wine Cellars.”
The home spreads across 3,500 square feet of welcoming indoor space with an awe-inspiring 200-square-foot terrace. This top-floor penthouse offers iconic views from all four cardinal points.
According to the listing page, it is currently configured as a four-bedroom abode with an elegant library that can easily be transformed into a fifth bedroom.
This airy penthouse is the perfect destination for entertaining.
The eastern exposed living room is adorned with a gas fireplace in the center and a brilliantly positioned roll-top painting cloaking the television out of sight. Next, the good times roll over to the kitchen. Marvelous and recently renovated, it is dressed with Calcatta Marable and packed with best-in-class appliances. A grand dining room can easily accommodate a dozen guests when dinner is served.
The tasting continues in liquid form. Undoubtedly, the standout feature is the 432 bottom designer wine wall, which embodies the quality and standards of the most prestigious restaurants.
Pamela Marcus of Compass, who is marketing the listing, noted the fabulousness of the home’s unique qualities. “It is a penthouse in mint condition with a fabulous refrigerated wine wall holding about 500 bottles/magnums. I have had a wine closet in a listing but never a wine wall.”
All to say that this home is a wine lover’s dream come true.
