The views from 48E, our 3,371 square foot, four-bedroom and four-and-a-half-bathroom home cannot be overstated. Balanced on the 48th floor in this globally recognized New York City landmark, amidst cantilevers and sparkling glass, with soaring 12-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling glass window walls, breathtaking panoramas of the Manhattan cityscape, water, bridges and beyond are revealed. Two furnishable balconies provide another 406 square feet from which to entertain guests off the living room and kitchen or enjoy a private moment to admire the sunsets from the primary bedroom.
Light floods the home and spills onto the solid Appalachian White Oak flooring throughout the residence and is controlled by custom remote shades on every window, including blackout shades in the bedrooms. Custom interiors by Herzog & de Meuron are rarified further by a modern gas fireplace in the living room and a kitchen that features a sculptural Absolute Black granite kitchen island and Corian countertops with seamlessly incorporated appliances including a double Sub-Zero refrigerator, Miele double oven, six-burner cooktop with a fully vented hood, two dishwashers, and a Sub-Zero wine-cooler. Satin-etched glass cabinets and a pantry closet provide a vast amount of storage.
Additionally, there is a windowed five-fixture primary bath of travertine and marble with radiant heated floors, en suite baths in each secondary bedroom, a powder room at the entrance, 4-pipe heating and cooling system for year-round, multi-zone climate control, and a Maytag vented washer and dryer. The home comes with a large storage unit.
