Description

This stunning, custom-designed, 8-room Park view home at 239 Central Park West is ideally positioned in one of the Avenue’s superb full-service buildings directly across the street from Central Park. The elegant, high-floor, 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom home showcases nearly 40’ of direct Central Park views from 3 bedrooms including the corner primary suite, as well as oblique views from the formal expanse; a highly coveted vantage point providing a gorgeous seasonal perspective. The gracious and flowing layout is well-planned for large-scale entertaining as well as private living, with en-suite baths in all 4 bedrooms.

The formal expanse includes a beautiful and oversized living room, elegant custom wood-paneled library-den/media room, eat-in windowed chef’s kitchen with separate dining area and butler’s pantry, and a very elegant and large formal receiving foyer with marble flooring that is large enough for formal dining.

Every square inch of the apartment has been beautifully designed by top NYC architect, John B. Murray, balancing elegant finishes and extraordinary comforts utilizing the highest quality materials and craftmanship throughout. Great care was taken to create a very functional home by maximizing space, scale, and light with state-of-the-art comforts including a Crestron entertainment system, central AC in all rooms, built-in audio, custom lighting, humidification and air filtration systems, redundant CAT 5e cabling in every room, Verizon Fios internet, and Lutron motorized solar and blackout shades. Additional modern luxuries include top-of-line appliances, spa-like marble baths, and generous custom storage throughout.

The grand scale is enhanced by 9’ high ceilings, very spacious rooms, beautiful natural light, east and north exposures, custom pocket doors that maximize space, and oversized tilt and turn windows throughout. Gorgeous architectural details include beamed ceilings, custom walnut wide-plank flooring, custom wood-paneled library, custom moldings and trim, abundant custom built-ins, a wood-burning fireplace in the library, and custom Nanz hardware throughout.

The fully equipped chef’s kitchen was designed for both cooking and entertaining with a double pan rack, 2 sinks, and top-of-the-line appliances including 4 Sub Zero refrigerators (2 upright and 2 drawers), 4 additional Sub-Zero freezer drawers, a 48" Wolf gas range oven with grill and French cooktop, a professional stainless exterior vented hood, Miele dishwasher, and a built-in microwave. Abundant custom cabinetry is complemented with Pietra Cardosa stone counters, classic subway tile backsplash, and a large pass through into the dining area which boasts built-in custom pantry closets, and a dry bar/pantry with 2 Sub-Zero wine refrigerators.

The sun-filled residents’ wing showcases breathtaking Central Park views from all 3 bedrooms boasting oversized windows that draw in beautiful natural light all day.

All 3 bedrooms offer en-suite marble baths with basketweave tile marble, Toto toilets, and Barber Wilsons fixtures. The corner primary suite is simply sublime with both east and north exposures through four windows that envelop you in gorgeous Park vistas. The suite includes a beautiful, spa-like bath with double vanity, marble floors and surfaces, and a seamless glass walk-in shower.

An extended dressing room is lined with abundant custom closets and features a secondary door that opens to the shared bedroom hallway. Both the second and third bedrooms feature custom built-in beds and desks, custom closets, and en-suite baths. The fourth bedroom suite has a custom Murphy bed, an en-suite marble bath, ample closet storage, and a laundry closet with a Miele washer/dryer.
