Old world charm meets New York City Master Architect, an unparalleled opportunity, it's first time on the market in almost three decades!
Designed, renovated and continuously curated by an award-winning New York Architect as her family home, the apartment is a north, south, east, and west facing custom build that boasts a 1,400 square foot wrap-around private roof terrace and a meticulously composed aesthetic like no other. This is a masterpiece of open concept living with unobstructed views that reach from the Hudson River to Hudson Yards and beyond. No wonder it has been featured in print and on HGTV!
As you enter this remarkable find, you will instantly feel the soul of the space working with you. The apartment's highly considered design creates purposeful, axial relationships between its major spaces, generating a flow from the living room, through the perfectly lit dining room and commercial grade kitchen, to the terrace and the city beyond. Three skylights illuminate the loft-like space from above, while full-height Euro-style tilt turn doors and windows provide breathtaking skyline and river views in all directions. Every material used in the apartment is considered for its relationship to the pre-war building and the surrounding landscape-from the Venetian plaster walls, to the marble-tiled kitchen and abundant built-in casework.
The highlight of this penthouse is the private wrap-around roof terrace, offering a serene escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. This oasis in the sky has over 1,400 square feet of beautifully landscaped and lit outdoor space. The penthouse is the only apartment on that level and holds 'exclusive' roof rights. Complete with hard-piped natural gas BBQ grill, hot and cold water that can be used in a private shower space, outdoor lighting, and built in-speakers, the terrace is perfect for entertaining guests or simply relaxing in your own 'totally private' park.
No detail has escaped notice, and no room is without exquisite details. Inside the apartment raised floors, a whole-house premium A/V system, and an impressive amount of bespoke storage add to the luxurious living experience. A custom fabricated queen-sized bed drops down from the ceiling, turning the living room into a main or additional bedroom. The kitchen is a chef's dream, with professional-ready appliances including a stove, salamander, dishwasher, double-sided glass-door refrigerator that doubles as a kitchen island, and a traditional ceiling pot rack. All lighting and fixtures throughout the apartment are custom fit, and every area has individual temperature control via state-of-the-art heat pump HVAC systems. All this and a hidden washer with vented gas dryer included as well.
Perhaps the most alluring detail, however, lies up the beautiful steel spiral staircase that greets you as you enter the living room. This penthouse has a penthouse of its own - a second story retreat with 360-degree views of the city and the river. Of all the stylish and charming elements of the apartment, this is the one that got it featured in magazines and on HGTV. Share a glass of wine under the stars, or do your morning sun salutations under the full blue sky - you will have to see this space to truly believe it could be yours.
And, as though the apartment itself wasn't enough to astonish, the owners have planned and submitted for approval to the DOB the ability to add an additional 580 square feet interior area to the apartment, enough space to transform it into a 3-bedroom 3-bath apartment with expanded living, dining and kitchen areas, should that be your future wish. The Architect/owner has used her decades of expertise to design these new plans and is willing to discuss consulting on an expansion - this is an opportunity you cannot pass up. The rights to build the additional square footage is defined in the Proprietary Lease of the Cooperative with no sunset date and no increase to maintenance charges.
Located in a prime spot in the heart of New York City, this Upper West Side penthouse offers the perfect combination of luxury, comfort, and convenience. Don't miss the opportunity to make this exceptional property your own. Schedule your private showing today! There is a 2.5% flip tax TBD.
