This duplex penthouse is located one block from Central Park and offers condominium ownership.

Before being converted into condominiums, 57 East 73rd was a townhouse with an interesting past. It was once home to painter Marc Chagall.

The first level of the home is complimented with a chefs kitchen and private terrace adjacent to the dining area – perfect for those who love to cook and entertain. Both chambers are located on opposite sides of the first level.

The king-sized master contains a wood burning fireplace, his and her closets, and an ensuite bathroom. The second chamber also has an ensuite bathroom and is perfect for multi-use. The chamber is currently being used as an office and contains a Murphy bed.

The upper level is more than ideal for entertaining as it contains the apartments second and largest terrace with city views. The upper level was actually the area in the former townhouse where Chagall used as an art studio to create some of his paintings.

Today’s home is listed for $4.25 million with Halstead Real Estate, an affiliate of Luxury Portfolio International.
