Perched above 79th Street and West End Avenue is this rare two-bedroom, two-bathroom penthouse, offering 750 square feet of private outdoor space and dramatic city views from every window. The residence has undergone a complete transformation by world-renowned architect Winka Dubbeldam of Archi-Tectonics, resulting in an exquisitely remastered, modern space with a loft-like feel and innovative details throughout.
Enter through a private elevator landing into the expansive great room, boasting 10-foot ceilings and flooded with natural light from eight picture windows, offering both southern and eastern exposures. A wrap terrace with a spacious lounging and dining area surrounds the sun-drenched room. Distinctively sculpted walls, composed of white titanium colored epoxy and walnut veneer, set the tone for the modern, seamless space, complete with gray washed hardwood floors and recessed cove lighting.
The open concept kitchen provides abundant storage space and is equipped with a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Thermador gas range with grill and griddle components and Bosch dishwasher.
Concealed closets line the entrance to the master bedroom, which features two entries to the terrace and rows of windows allowing for a unique indoor-outdoor experience. The en-suite master bathroom features a steam shower and vanity area, with plenty of built-in storage. The second bedroom also provides access to the outdoor space, and is finished with a closet and updated bathroom.
Additional highlights of the meticulous renovation include built-in speakers in every room and the terrace, electronic black-out shades and an irrigation system on the terrace.
400 West End Avenue is a premier prewar cooperative located in the heart of the Upper West Side. The classic Art Deco lobby is attended by a full-time doorman, and the building staff also includes a live-in super, porters, and handymen. The co-op is ideally situated a block from the 1 train, yet secluded on quiet, residential West End Avenue, moments away from the idyllic Riverside Park.
