RARE AND ELEGANT RITZ TOWER DUPLEX in BRAND NEW CONDITION
Welcome to one of the most spectacular apartments in the Ritz Tower, located at 57th Street and Park Avenue. Two of the building's finest residences overlooking Park Avenue were combined and completely renovated from scratch to create a brilliantly designed 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom plus powder room duplex with an architecturally magnificent staircase created of glass, bronze and white-washed oak. With approximately 2,800 square feet, the upper level comprises an open-design entertainment floor with a grand-scale living room spanning 31 feet, a classically proportioned dining room, and a semi-open chef's kitchen with breakfast bar and the finest professional appliances. Completing this floor is a family room or den, an elegant powder room, a wet bar, coat closet and large walk-in storage room. The lower level features an enormous double bedroom primary suite with two lavish ensuite bathrooms and a dressing area. Ingeniously designed sliding panels close to create an additional guest bedroom with ensuite bath as the need arises. There is a third large bedroom, also with an ensuite bathroom featuring the finest materials, a laundry and an enormous walk-in closet. The lavish finishes include oak herringbone floors, 5-zone heating and air conditioning, custom Skyline tilt-and-turn windows, Italian marble windowsills, and Sonos surround sound speakers throughout.
This is an extremely rare offering as very few duplexes have been created in the Ritz Tower, and rarer still that it is a brand new, fully renovated apartment designed for today's lifestyle with open and spacious entertaining areas plus a separate floor for the private bedroom wing. It is a remarkable opportunity unlike any other offered in the building.
The Ritz Tower was built at the height of the Roaring 20's by one of Manhattan's most prolific and respected architects, Emery Roth. Originally designed as a 5-star hotel and the city's first residential skyscraper, it is now comprised of private residences while continuing to offer 5-star hotel services including a Chef de Cuisine for room service or dining in the Ritz Tower's 5th floor dining room/party room, front desk with concierge services, bell captain, housekeeping, valet and laundry, 24-hour onsite maintenance staff, and a fully equipped Fitness Center. Located in the heart of Manhattan, it is both centrally located and residential in feeling.
The building permits 50% financing, utilities are included in the maintenance, pied-a-terre and foreign purchasers are welcome, pets are allowed, and LLC, Trust and Corporate purchasers are permitted subject to board approval. There is a 3% flip tax payable by the purchaser.
