Description

Simply spectacular and exceptionally rare, this expansive luxury residence is truly one of a kind with its panoramic Central Park views, large private landscaped terrace, fabulous layout and fine design. Situated in an extraordinary landmarked castle, commissioned by John Jacob Astor in 1884 and converted to a premier full-service condominium in 2005, this special jewel at 455 CPW was painstakingly gut-renovated a decade ago and retains its excellent condition.

Enjoy the splendor of living in the only neo-French Renaissance-style prewar condominium on Central Park West, melding the timeless elegance of architect Charles C. Haight’s original details with a modern tower offering 5-star services and amenities. The historic conversion resulted in the creation of 17 stunning residences and a 26-story condo high-rise that is architecturally unlike anything you’ll find in NYC.

The magnificent double-turreted 9L is a distinctive dream home with 4 bedrooms (convertible to 5 per the alternate floorplan), 3.5 elegant baths, soaring 12-foot ceilings, and oversized windows facing every direction (north, south, west and east).

Other upscale elements gracing the ambience include Wenge floors; custom-made cabinetry; custom millwork; custom lighting (which is for sale, including the limited edition Porca Miseria by Ingo Maurer kitchen fixture), a wood-burning fireplace and hidden TV in the grand 1,100+/- sq ft circular living-dining room; heated floors in the kitchen and all bathrooms; bronze door fixtures & handles; plus custom automated blackout shades, drapes and solar blinds.

Your private elevator landing opens to a gracious entry foyer and the dramatic entertaining area. A circular 36.6" diameter living room affords a perfect setting for hosting guests and dinner parties, and connects to a spacious park-facing terrace for serving coffee and cocktails outdoors. The adjoining chef’s kitchen also accesses the terrace through double doors and is well equipped with sleek custom cabinetry, a huge center island-breakfast bar, Corian counters, and integrated Gaggenau appliances including standard and steam ovens.

A long private gallery hall proceeds to the sleeping quarters, highlighted by a spectacular circular primary bedroom suite set in the west wing.

This divine retreat presents a sitting room, office, outfitted walk-in closet, and spa-like marble bath with dual sinks, soaking tub, separate shower and garden views. The current den/media room can easily be transformed into 2 bedrooms if desired. Additional features are extensive closet space, a Miele washer-dryer, alarm system, heat & AC with humidity control, Crestron system controlling HVAC, shades/drapes and lights, and 6th floor storage area.

A separate studio with a shared laundry room is also available for purchase and is a great option for a live-in nanny.

455 CPW makes a striking impression at the northwest corner of Central Park West between 105th and 106th Streets. A private circular driveway, residents’ gym, 40’ pool, children’s playroom, beautiful common garden, 24/7 doormen, live-in super, bike room, individual storage, and an adjacent parking garage elevate the lifestyle. Pets are allowed as well.

The prime location on the park is close to Whole Foods, Upper West Side restaurants, the B/C subway lines, MTA buses, and the private Trinity School.

Real estate taxes reflect the co-op/condo tax abatement for primary residents.
