This spectacular and highly customized pied a terre “has it all”! Perched high above Fifth Avenue in a premier location and in a top building, this triple-mint condition apartment features breath-taking views of Central Park and the city skylines from every room and from its two large terraces. The apartment faces south and west, and the rooms are flooded with sun and light. Upon entering, there is a spacious gallery hall that leads to the front of the apartment, where there is an elegant living room with a wood-burning fireplace, a comfortable seating area, expanses of wall space for art, and access to a large terrace directly facing west onto Central Park with jaw-dropping views. Adjacent to the living room and separated by custom sliding doors is a luxurious master bedroom with windows on two sides. En suite is a beautiful bathroom that is full of bespoke details such as a custom-designed double-sink vanity with an integrated folding mirror covering the window. There is a large stall shower with eucalyptus steam element, separate water closet, and a sumptuous walk-in closet/dressing area with handsomely appointed cabinetry.
Off the central spacious gallery hall on the other side of the apartment is a glamorous dining room and sitting area which faces south and has access to the second terrace in the apartment, which has a seating area, grill, and lounging area, all covered by a permanently fixed awning, and all with glorious views. Immediately adjoining the dining room is a well-equipped chef’s kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, all perfect for entertaining guests or home cooking. The piece de resistance to this part of the apartment is the 500+ bottle “wall of wine” glass-fronted wine storage refrigerator which was custom-fabricated by European engineers and artisans, and has a dynamic light program to showcase the wine bottles and magnums, and acts as a dramatic design element for the space.
At the back of the apartment is a comfortable and well-designed guest room with open city views to the north and east. There is a second full bathroom with stall shower that also functions as a powder room/guest bath and is conveniently situated off the kitchen and dining area.
The apartment has many special features and attributes, including a totally integrated home automation and high security system which has touch-pad controls for entry (with cameras) lights, shades, and HVAC. There is an extra high-pressure water heater and oversized/independent heating, cooling, and water systems. The walls feature hand-applied Venetian plaster, which catches the light and accentuates the art. The windows and glass doors are all new, and many of them were enlarged and expanded, and a south-facing window was added in the master bedroom. The two terraces have oversized state-of-the-art large glass sliding doors that fold over into one panel for easy access in and out, and the terraces have lighting, irrigation systems, heating elements, lattice paneling with mirror inserts to enhance the views, planter boxes, and handsome pavers that are flush with the doorsills eliminating an extra step. Inside the apartment, all the walls, ceilings, and floors have high-quality soundproofing, and the walls have been reinforced for hanging art and sculpture. In short, every detail has been attended to within this apartment, and no expense has been spared in its complete and total renovation.
