In just 8 months, Linden78 Reaches Over 90% Sold

Linden78, a full-service luxury condominium on the Upper West Side, located at 230 West 78th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue, recently hosted a series of broker events showcasing the building’s final two homes – both penthouses and both newly modeled.

Scores of brokers from Manhattan’s top real estate sales and marketing firms were wowed by the penthouses’ breathtaking views of Central Park and the Hudson River and something even more scarce: the fact that both are full-floor homes.

“Linden78 is such a stunning, sophisticated space and the penthouses at the building are truly the ultimate Upper West Side penthouse dream,” said Susanna Ledrum, senior vice president at Corcoran Group Real Estate, a guest at one of the events. “Exclusively designed on an entire floor with the finest finishes, the penthouses offer the most amazing views of both Central Park and the Hudson River.”

Embodying the height of upscale Manhattan living, Penthouse 20, priced at $6.04 million, is a 3,000-square-foot home with three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, a magnificent foyer entryway, fireplace and en suite master bath with private dressing room. Penthouse 21, a 3,006-square-foot home priced at $6.925 million, offers three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, features 10-foot ceilings and boasts a private rooftop terrace accessed by a spiral staircase.

“These two full-floor penthouses are a rare ownership opportunity on the Upper West Side, with elevators opening up right into your foyer. Nothing tops this luxury,” says Jacqueline Urgo, president of The Marketing Directors, Inc., the exclusive sales and marketing agent for Linden78.

With 30 of its 32 homes sold since the beginning of sales in late 2010, Linden78 has experienced a success unheard of in recent years. “In just eight months, we have reached over 90 percent sold and are thrilled to be unveiling our freshly staged penthouses,” said Christopher Westley, a sales and marketing advisor working on behalf of ownership.

Designed by award-winning firm Handel Architects, the 21-story building supports the latest in home technology and is prewired for Verizon Fios, Wi-Fi and the option of a CytexOne automation system that offers virtual control of audio/visual systems, heating and cooling, lighting and window shades.

Each home features a full-size Miele side-by-side washer dryer, central air and an eat-in, gourmet chef’s kitchen, many with a windowed breakfast nook. Classic Pietro Bianco Luna countertops complement sleek, stainless steel appliances by Viking and Miele, while InSinkErator disposals complete the top-of-the-line package. All master bathrooms have Lagos Azul limestone floors, Luce di Luna countertops, Mezzanine Mink glass wall tiles, Waterworks sconces, a Kohler six-foot Tea-for-Two soaking tub and oversize glass stall shower.
