Yves Penthouse Shows Off Its Bronze

Featured Properties // Sep 09, 2011

There’s only one thing to do when the perfect nickel window latches for your Bergen County mansion don’t actually exist: start an architectural hardware company and make your own. That’s precisely what technology entrepreneur Scott A. Baxter did a few years back, and Baxter brought that same dedication to detail to his Manhattan penthouse in Chelsea’s Yves building, which also happens to be home to CORE HQ. Baxter thoroughly renovated the glassy four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom penthouse, which takes up the entire 12th floor and also features a landscaped roof terrace. But forget the great outdoors, it’s the apartment’s interiors that just caught the Daily News‘ eye. Here’s some of what the paper’s Gina Pace has to say about the space:

The result is a space that maximizes the four-way midtown and Chelsea views. The Yves, by the way, is made of solid glass — so no pesky window frames to get in the way. There are four bedrooms, each with en suite bathroom. The kitchen is enough to make professional chefs drool: there are two Sub-Zero refrigerators, two dishwashers and an 80-bottle wine ­refrigerator.

Certain design details stand out: The foyer and one of the bathrooms have floors made of solid white-bronze planks — a copper alloy that has nickel in it, giving it a silvery sheen. It’s custom-made in Baxter’s foundry, and there is none other like it in the world.

Does the bronze take the gold? Have a peek at those one-of-a-kind planks in the photo below. Like what you see? CORE’s Stuart Sussman has the $10.4 million listing in the full-service luxury building.
