Impressively scaled windows facing North, West, and East frame breathtaking open panoramic views of Manhattan all day long from every room in this trophy penthouse designed by acclaimed interior designer Monique Gibson, certainly one of the most exceptional real estate moments in all of Manhattan. While the finish-out of this home is of a standard rarely found anywhere after an extensive multi-year gut renovation, it is the bones - the things you cannot replicate anywhere - that are of collector value.
The entry gallery immediately reveals the fine craftsmanship that permeates throughout this residence with chic terrazzo and hardwood flooring and custom limestone plaster walls. In front of you is the first glimpse of the breathtaking views North beyond the landscaped terrace, well past the Empire State building to midtown and further afar. The graciously scaled living room focuses on a gas-burning fireplace that has been clad in rounded marble slabs that extend to the ceiling, an impressive 12-foot height. This grand, yet humanly scaled space leads out onto the full-width loggia terrace that boasts a glass balustrade that allows usage all year round. A gathering space beyond steel-framed glass doors off the main living room allows for more casual gathering or dining with two walls of windows. Beyond that is the study - exquisitely milled and paneled from floor to ceiling - with an adjoining wet bar and powder room that is also accessible via the entry hallway.
At the opposite end of the apartment is a dramatic dining room that overlooks the magnificent copper-clad crown of the Woolworth Building, a work of art unto itself. The enormous eat-in kitchen boasts a butler's pantry, pantry, laundry room, powder room, and professional-grade appliances and fittings perfectly suited to large-scale entertaining on a lavish scale. A mudroom service entry is the third access point and a bonus. The dramatic custom stairway allows you to ascend to the upper floor, although this too may be achieved via a private elevator or the building elevators. The landing frames a jaw-dropping vista, certainly one of the most inspiring moments in the entire apartment. The Primary Bedroom Suite comprises the entire Eastern peninsula with a large windowed dressing room/closet/boudoir/, a chic bathroom with a soaking tub, a bedroom, a second massive walk-in closet, and a second bathroom. The extensive custom millwork, fixtures, and finishes are in a word sublime but always lead you back to the dreamy views and light that fill these rooms all day. At the opposite end of this floor is a media room/5th bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, two smaller bedrooms that share a bathroom and a play area with a mini-kitchen, and another bedroom suite, perfect for a nanny. A separate one-bedroom apartment on the 39th floor is also included - an ideal guest suite or private home office.
A fully integrated lighting and AV system as well as four-pipe fan-coil heating and air conditioning system with dedicated zones features throughout. Gleaming Herringbone oak flooring, electronic shades, and superb light fixtures are but a few of the additional attributes of this home that recently completed a multi-year gut renovation of the very highest order.
The limestone-clad Four Seasons residences designed by architect Robert A. M. Stern are perched above a world-class hotel, already a neighborhood landmark, and include full services and amenities including a 24-hour doorman and concierge, grandly scaled private resident's lounge, and fitness facilities with a yoga room, a playroom, screening room, and all the amenities of the hotel including a full-size 75ft swimming pool with natural daylight, a garage, meeting rooms and a superb full-service spa and salon. Hotel services and catering is available 24/7.
