The iconic "Paul Rudolph House" at 23 Beekman Place, is both architecturally alluring and rich in history. Paul Rudolph, one of the most celebrated architects of the 20th Century, purchased the property in the 1970's and redesigned it into one of the most provocative Landmarks in the city, and the place the architect ultimately called home.
The building currently consists of four residences, all possessing Rudolph's trademark geometric design and innovative style. The first unit is a spacious one bedroom/2 bathroom apartment, and units 2 and 3 are both 2 bedroom/2 bathroom duplexes, with marble floors throughout and tiered levels of entertaining space. Each residence boasts enormous floor to ceiling picture windows, showcasing the breathtaking views of the East River and flooding each room with sunlight.
The extraordinary penthouse is a 3 bedroom/3 bathroom triplex with expansive entertaining space staggered on multiple levels, one of the architect's trademark designs. Encompassing 4000sf, this stunning residence boasts four terraces, a wood burning fireplace and large chef's kitchen that includes two Subzero refrigerators, a Bosch dishwasher and a Gaggenau six burner stove. The penthouse has been critically acclaimed as one of most amazing pieces of modern urban domestic architecture and has earned two awards from the American Institute of Architecture-it is a true masterpiece!
Located on a charming, tree-lined block in Beekman Place and encompassing over 9000sf, this exceptional townhouse is truly a historic Landmark and presents a unique opportunity as an income-producing investment or a magnificent single residence
