Palatial Renovated Designer Condo at The Apthorp
Welcome to one-of-a-kind luxury living in this exquisite Apthorp condo on the Upper West Side, a sprawling 6-bedroom, 7-bathroom home that blends Gilded Age refinement with contemporary technology, craftsmanship, and design. Every inch of this 6,110 sq. ft. apartment was updated and transformed by an experienced design team from Elias Associates and Fernando Papale of BP Architects.
Airy tray ceilings with elegant crown molding hover over stunning American oak floors with intricate mahogany inlays. Custom built-ins offer myriad storage solutions and blend seamlessly with tasteful wall moldings, carved marble Chesneys fireplaces, and mahogany paneling and doors. A state-of-the-art Crestron home automation system is integrated with lighting, shades, cameras, audio/visual, and precision temperature control. Twenty-seven windows with four exposures flood the home with natural light from sunrise to sunset.
A grand marble and stone foyer with a powder room and coat closets flows into an entertainment parlor and a massive great room with custom built-ins, two wet bars, and a liquor bar. The Christopher Peacock-designed kitchen is equipped with an eat-in island, custom marble and onyx tile floors, sleek quartzite countertops, black and honey oak cabinets, a glimmering hammered copper oven hood, and a suite of high-end appliances from Miele, JennAir, Wolf, Viking, and Sub-Zero. Just off the kitchen is a bright dining room, den, and dry bar with an additional Sub-Zero refrigerator and a built-in wine cooler.
The private primary suite takes up an entire wing and has a Chesneys fireplace, a windowed nursery, three walk-in closets with custom built-ins, a midnight bar with a fridge and sink, and twin windowed bathrooms with high-end fixtures and marble finishes. Each of the remaining bedrooms has ample closet space and a full en-suite bathroom. Finishing the home are a wood-paneled library with custom built-ins as well as a large laundry room with a washer/dryer, a utility sink, and custom storage.
Adjacent unit 2KS is also available for purchase if one desires a larger space or a guest apartment. The combined apartments 2LM and 2KS can become adjoined through a privately owned corridor to create nearly
8,000 sqft residence.
