Residence 11A, a high-floor one-bed / one-bath condominium one of the largest one-bedrooms in the building (with flexibility to add a small guest room) showcases open views of Downtown Manhattan's skyline including One World Trade Center, the Oculus, 56 Leonard a.k.a the Jenga Building, the Four Seasons and the highly anticipated Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center. Located in 225 Rector Place, a full-service property developed by the acclaimed Related Companies with interiors by renowned designer Clodagh, this Battery Park City home is surrounded by lush parklands and is moments from the BPC Esplanade that runs along the Hudson River.
A gracious foyer with a double coat closet opens to the pin-drop-quiet interior that is lined with wide-plank oak floors and is bathed in natural light through four windows (with custom window treatments), two of which run floor-to-ceiling. This sanctuary, perched above a verdant garden and finished with a palette of soothing earth tones, offers an open plan with separate areas for dining, entertaining and a home office.
An open kitchen centers around a large waterfall-edge peninsula and is appointed with quartz countertops + breakfast bar by Caesarstone and a stacked subway tile backsplash. The kitchen is equipped with premium appliances seamlessly integrated into the custom cabinetry including a Sub-Zero refrigerator with two freezer drawers and a Bosch dishwasher. A stainless steel gas range built-into the breakfast bar with a Faber hood complete this space.
Floor-to-ceiling windows in the bedroom frame those same picturesque views of Downtown Manhattan. Also inside, a massive walk-in closet distinguishes this home from the smaller one-bedroom lines in the building. Off the primary is a Zen-inspired bathroom clad in stone tile with a ceramic sink by Kohler, chrome fixtures, a large medicine cabinet and a deep soaking tub & shower. A W/D may be installed in-unit (with approval).
225 Rector Place is a premier Battery Park City condominium nestled between two parks on a serene, bucolic cul-de-sac block. The building is flanked by Rector Park to the south and West Thames Park to the east (with basketball courts and a community garden). The property is maintained by a full-time staff that offers on-site valet services (dry cleaning, housekeeping, parking) and is replete with amenities including a multi-level state-of-the-art fitness center with locker rooms, steam rooms and saunas; a 40-ft indoor pool surrounded by chaise lounges with a dramatic skylight; a resident lounge; and a central laundry room next to the health club.
The hallmark of this address is its extraordinary furnished and landscaped rooftop terrace that features two grilling stations, a cabana (which can be rented out for private events) and extraordinary panoramic views.
A parking garage, attached to the building, boasts a ChargePoint EV charging station.
