Our Definition of "Done" - Colin Cowie's NY Penthouse
BungaluxOctober 02, 2012According to Webster's Dictionary, "Done" can be defined as:
1: past particle of "do"
2: arrived at or brought to an end (one more question and we're done)
3: doomed to failure, defeat, or death
4: gone by : over (the day of the circus big top is done)
5: physically exhausted
6: cooked sufficiently (check to see if the meat is done)
7: conformable to social convention (not the done thing)
According to Bungalux, "Done" can be defined as:
1: an amazing combined penthouse in one of the hottest parts of New York which has been flawlessly crafted in every last detail by author, events producer, television personality, and consultant Colin Cowie (aka: the KING of entertaining and good taste)
2: see 1
But those kinds of "done" never come on the market, do they?
No. Wait, yes?
We stumbled upon Colin Cowie's magnificent New York penthouse recently and felt that we had had had to feature it because it's exactly what we're about around here: Good taste meets good design meets real estate.
The stunning unit speaks for itself, but here are the Cliffs Notes. The approximately 3,000 square foot residence has key-locked elevator access and two bedrooms and two and half baths. The private rooftop terrace offers approximately 900-square feet of entertaining space, expansive views of Manhattan including the Empire State Building, and dumbwaiter service from the first floor kitchen. (Would you expect anything less from Mr. Cowie?) Every last detail - and when we say "detail" we mean "detail" - of the unit is personally designed by Colin with entertaining and comfortable luxury lifestyle in mind. From the hidden storage to the to-die-for-bar to the expansive outdoor space, this is one of the best homes we've seen for all types of gatherings. In addition, the building itself offers white glove service with a 24-hour concierge, private spa and state-of-the-art fitness center.
We would write more, but why bother with one of the best video tours of a unit we've ever seen available online. If you're going to do one thing today, we recommend you CLICK HERE TO HAVE COLIN COWIE AND CORE AGENT EMILY BEARE GIVE YOU A VIDEO TOUR OF THE EXTRAORDINARY PROPERTY.
One other quick note: Check out the dining room chairs. They fit right into our Lucite story from last week. Hmmm. Some may say Colin's learned everything he knows from us. Okay, maybe it's the other way around. Semantics.
