Description

Perched at the pinnacle of 1 Sutton Place South, one of Manhattan's iconic residential buildings, this unparalleled penthouse is a contemporary tour de force exemplifying the best of the best in New York. Designed by the illustrious Rosario Candela, the 1927 limestone-clad building belies the breathtaking modern style of the penthouse's interiors. Once the home of noted socialite and fashion icon C.

Z. Guest, the Prewar residence has been given a remarkable contemporary facelift—with chic, sleek, clean, and crisp lines—while its timeless bones allow it to remain unquestionably stylish. A rare haven of voluminous space and glorious natural light, it boasts soaring ceilings and a generous scale that make it a superlative setting for sophisticated living, entertaining, and art.

Expansive windows throughout afford views of the sunrise over the East River in the mornings, sunsets over the sparkling skyline of Manhattan at day's end, and the dramatic cantilevers of the Queensboro Bridge at any hour. An effortless flow and an inviting ambience make the four- or five-bedroom home perfect for indoor-outdoor entertaining, with the floor plan divided into two wings—one earmarked for gatherings, the other dedicated to personal privacy. The northern entrance is used for day-to-day living, while the southern entrance welcomes guests for formal festivities.

An impeccably appointed private elevator opens to the gallery-like foyer, a dramatic introduction to the home's extraordinary light and scale. Artist Leo Villareal transformed the conveniently sited powder room into a work of art in its own right. Anchoring this wing is the living room, one of the most important entertaining spaces in New York.

Jaw-droppingly spacious, stunningly stylish, and flooded with light, it is wrapped with gallery walls and oversized windows that turn three-directional vistas into dynamic art. Two glass doors give way to the terrace in a seamless flow. Steps away, off the skylit hallway, the colorfully chic and cozy library includes a whimsical wet bar.

In the striking dining room, a wide window frames a postcard view. At the heart of the home, conveniently centered between the two wings, is the enviable kitchen. Inviting and tranquil, the sunlit breakfast area is a delightful contrast to the industrious chef's space, powerfully clad and equipped in a manner befitting a professional culinarian, with an array of superior-caliber stainless-steel appliances.

Eastern and western doors open to the terrace. The southern wing also features two stylish guest bedrooms with en suite baths, expansive views, and access to the terrace; discreet staff quarters that include a bath and an auxiliary elevator; and a spacious laundry room. Throughout the northern wing, comfort and style are of equal import.

Generosity of space and abundance of light create a lively ambience in the private quarters. The serene owner's bedroom is a cloudlike aerie seeming to float above the city, which it overlooks through a wall of windows. Enjoying a quintessential view of the Queensboro Bridge, its luxurious bath is accompanied by two dressing areas with plentiful built-in storage and a well-lit walk-in closet.

Warm and welcoming, the handsome den has been thoughtfully fitted with built-in shelves, a graceful curved wall of windows, and its own door to the terrace. Completing this wing are a bright, comfortable office with built-ins, a fourth bedroom with an en suite bath, and an elevator. The entire penthouse is enveloped by approximately 6,000 square feet of terrace space accessible from every major room.

The penthouse is a true urban refuge, a place of tranquility and pure privacy high above the bustling pace of the city, yet it benefits from every available amenity. Truly one of a kind, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
