66 East 79th Street is an elegant Neo-Georgian 15 story apartment building located mid block between Park and Madison Avenues.

Designed by Pleasants Pennington & Albert W. Lewis it was built in 1925-6 on the former site of three row houses of the 1880s. Most of the apartments in this discreet building are private floors and this exceptional Duplex located on the 14th and 15th floors was originally designed as the largest home of the building . It has not been publicly offered for sale for decades as it only traded privately over the years.

The apartment is brilliantly designed, Prewar details abound throughout and it is offered in excellent condition. It consists of 12 beautifully proportioned rooms. This home feels very much like a Townhouse high above the City. It features corner rooms with open exposures in all four directions and allows truly wonderful light throughout during the day and magical City lights at night including the superb lit crown of the Carlyle.
