The historic "Astor Suite" is one of the most well-known homes in America and the finest in the world-renowned Plaza. Previously occupied by many notables such as John Jacob Astor, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, and John F. Kennedy, there is no grander home of greater pedigree or proportion than exquisite 509.
This brilliant masterpiece, situated on the most desired corner of the iconic Plaza building, enjoys a magnificent vantage point yielding breathtaking views of Central Park and Fifth Avenue. The 4,299 square-foot, four-bedroom, four and a half bath residence boasts high-end museum-worthy interiors by architect S.R. Gambrel Inc., who employed master artisans that rebuilt Windsor Castle in England, in a complete transformation that is unparalleled in every last detail.
Exquisite custom millwork, soaring 12-foot ceilings, including those of tasteful old-world hand-drawn plaster, built-ins and fireplaces, rich English oak paneling, striking hand-hammered leather walls from France, and spectacular furnishings from around the world create the ultimate air of sophistication. This unique elegance is met by the latest modern features and systems, among them new HVAC with a humidifier for artwork, and state-of-the-art Savant that allows one-touch control of the lighting, audio, visual and temperature from your smartphone or iPad.
Upon arrival, a large gracious reception hall greets you and opens up to the dramatic living, entertaining and sleeping quarters. The generously-sized main rooms are perfect for lavish entertaining, with an easy flow connecting the beautiful living room, stately library, awe-inspiring corner dining room, and top-of-the-line chef's kitchen. The extravagant private master suite is positioned in its own wing, featuring an enormous walk-in closet, dressing area, and spa-like bath. On the opposite end of the home are two additional bedroom suites with grand marble baths and ample closet space.
