Balancing grand scale living with the intimate feeling of home, Residence 53A at 53 West 53 comprises 3,889 square feet, offering three bedrooms and a windowed study, three-and-a-half bathrooms, and north- and east-facing exposures. Gracious proportions and ceilings ranging up to approximately 11 feet set the awe-inspiring stage for world-renowned designer Thierry Desponts 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.

The proper entry gallery gives way to the generous corner living room, lined on two sides with floor-to-ceiling windows that artfully frame north- and east-facing views. An adjacent pair of dramatic pocket doors opens to reveal the windowed custom kitchen by Thierry Despont for Molteni, where polished statuary marble countertops and a back-lit statuary backsplash 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, steam oven, speed oven, under-counter wine refrigerator, and integrated coffee maker.

In the bedroom wing, an airy gallery leads past the windowed study to the primary suite, offering north- and east-facing views; a walk-in closet; and a spacious, windowed en suite bath with radiant heated floors. Elegantly appointed in polished Noir St. Laurent marble, high-honed Verona limestone, and polished Peruvian 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. Two additional bedrooms with east-facing views each offer 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 Bill 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.
