Description

A completely unparalleled opportunity in the iconic 15 Central Park West, Penthouse 16/17B presents one of the only private residences in the world designed by Pritzker Prize winning architect and designer, Lord Norman Foster. The home has been completely re-imagined by the current owner and Foster to create the finest home imaginable.

Residing in the highly coveted House section of Robert A.M. Stern’s limestone clad towers, this expansive duplex provides nearly 100 feet of direct Central Park frontage across two floors where the magic of the city and the park are a true extension of your extraordinary residence.

The home is being sold with permit plans in place to finish creating a masterpiece beyond imagination.

Upon entering the approximately 5,417 square foot home through the semi-private landing, the grand entrance gallery greets you and your guests with a wrapping staircase that is a piece of art all on its own. The entire first level of the home is dedicated to your living and entertaining spaces. The 44 foot living room features a stunning partial gas fireplace wall dividing the seating areas with a luxurious ambiance to create multiple spectacular seating spaces where one can soak in the incredible views East across Central Park and the dazzling city skyline.

The entire room opens to the nearly 400 square foot terrace with complete privacy for perfect indoor/outdoor living experiences. The rest of this level is completed with a large formal dining room that is directly adjacent to a chef’s kitchen that would rival kitchens you’d expect to see in a large estate outside of the city.

The upper level of this home is where you will find all five bedrooms, and can be accessed from the stairs or the separate elevator entrance. The new layout provides for a double primary suite.

Each room faces East across Central Park and has incredible dressing rooms with spa-level bathrooms including a windowed soaking tub with all of the views a New Yorker dreams about. There is a laundry room on this floor and three additional large guest bedrooms, each with their own ensuite custom designed bathroom.

15 Central Park West is a timeless masterpiece on the corner of West 61st Street, often referred to as "The World’s most Powerful Address" as author Michael Gross wrote in his book dedicated to the building. Unrivaled luxury living awaits the residents of this building with their incredible 24-hour concierge staff, 14,000 square foot fitness center, 75 foot lap pool, private restaurant and dining room, private motor court, library, business center, steam/sauna, screening room, wine rooms, terraces, and playrooms.

Many buildings have tried, but none can quite compete with what has been created here.

All images provided are renderings of the design provided by Fosters + Partners. Permit plans are included in the sale of the home to begin the completion of your private masterpiece at the best address in the world.
