Balancing grand scale living with the intimate feeling of home, Residence 23D at 53 West 53 comprises 2,530 square feet, offering two bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, and south- and east-facing exposures. Gracious proportions and ceilings ranging up to approximately 10'3" set the awe-inspiring stage for world-renowned designer Thierry Despont's masterfully conceived interiors. Bespoke detailing typically reserved for privately commissioned homes abounds, while a rich yet soft palette of museum-quality finishes imbues each space with both modern glamour and timeless elegance.

From the entry gallery, the generous corner living room is lined with floor-to-ceiling windows that artfully frame south- and east-facing views. A proper dining room with east-facing exposures is framed by multiple pocket doors that adjoin the living space at one end and the kitchen to the other for optimal flexibility and seamless entertaining. The windowed custom kitchen by Thierry Despont for Molteni features polished statuary marble countertops and a back-lit statuary backsplash that complement back-painted glass cabinetry with polished nickel detailing and Dornbracht fixtures. The extensive suite of appliances by Miele and Sub-Zero includes a fully integrated refrigerator and freezer, five-burner cooktop with fully vented hood, integrated dishwasher, wall oven, speed oven, under-counter wine refrigerator, and integrated coffee maker.

The primary suite offers east-facing views; a generous walk-in closet; and a spacious en suite bath with radiant heated floors. Elegantly appointed in polished Noir St. Laurent marble, high-honed Verona limestone, and polished Persian golden travertine with polished nickel Dornbracht fixtures throughout, the primary bathroom features two separate custom carved vanities, a cast iron Lefroy Brooks soaking tub, freestanding shower, private water closet with commode and bidet, and a large linen closet. A gracious secondary bedroom enjoys east-facing views and offers an en suite bathroom clad in high-honed Verona limestone with polished nickel Dornbracht fixtures. Completing the residence are a beautifully appointed powder room and a discreet utility closet with side-by-side washer and vented dryer. No detail has been overlooked, from the custom interior lighting design by Thierry Despont in collaboration with Schwinghammer, to the motorized Lutron solar shades throughout with additional blackout shades in each bedroom, to the supply of humidified and filtered fresh air throughout the home.

With architecture by Pritzker Prize-winner Jean Nouvel and interiors by the legendary Thierry Despont, 53 West 53 is a true icon, rising 1,050 feet in the heart of Manhattan against the cinematic backdrop of Central Park and the surrounding cityscape. Over 30,000 square feet of extraordinary amenities and deeply personalized, five-star-hotel-level services transcend even the most discerning expectations.
