Midway between Central Park and Riverside Park, at the center of the vibrant Upper West Side, The Belnord is a masterpiece re-imagined. Architect Robert A.M. Stern, a New York landmark himself, has transformed The Belnord, blending the inimitable quality of the Gilded Age with the innovative spirit of life right now. Here, one of the greatest turn-of-the-century residences, a designated local and national landmark, has been reborn as a contemporary icon reflecting the city's most glorious epoch.
This extraordinary home offers five bedrooms and four and a half baths generously distributed over a sprawling 3,949 square feet. Beauty abounds with north and south exposures, 10 foot ceilings, fully restored, oversized mahogany windows, and white oak floors with chevron and plank patterns throughout.
Upon arrival, a formal entry foyer and gallery lead to the stunning great room, soaked in light and perfect for living, dining, and entertaining. The enormous eat-in kitchen, custom designed by Molteni in collaboration with Robert A. M. Stern Architects, features Calacatta Gold marble countertops and backsplash, with the unique choice of cerused oak or white lacquer custom cabinetry. State-of-the-art Gaggenau appliances and a 45 bottle Sub Zero wine refrigerator are further complemented by a stunning kitchen banquette.
Peacefully overlooking the courtyard, the expansive master suite offers two massive walk-in-closets, and a windowed, spa-like master bathroom, richly appointed in Siberian white marble. Radiant heated floors, custom designed vanities by Molteni and Robert A.M. Stern, a deep soaking tub with separate glass-enclosed shower, and accessories by Kohler, Dornbracht, and Kallista complete this rejuvenating sanctuary. Three additional bedrooms, equally striking and impressive, have en-suite closets and lavish bathrooms, equipped with Grigio Nicola stone, radiant heated floors, and vanities by Molteni. A fifth bedroom sits off the great room, and can be alternatively utilized as a study or den.
Situated conveniently off the foyer for guests' convenience, a signature powder room is appointed with polished Nero Marquina marble and a Snow White marble carved sink. An expansive laundry room with Whirlpool washer, dryer and sink, High-performance VRF dedicated HVAC system, Intrahome Systems integrated technology infrastructure, and an abundance of closet space throughout complete this extraordinary home.
Pre-war meets contemporary splendor with an unrivaled 30,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities, including a 24-hour attended lobby, expansive porte-cochere, and 22,000 square foot courtyard and garden, evoking total privacy and tranquility. The light-filled, two-story Belnord Club further offers a wealth of options for relaxation and entertainment, including a state-of-the-art fitness center, an impressive double-height sports court, a luxurious Club Lounge with a fireplace, separate dining room, children's playroom, and teen room.
In the words of developer Ziel Feldman, "It's the best of all possible worlds, a village in the city, with a special sense of place and pedigree."
