CENTRAL PARK VIEWS FROM EVERY VANTAGE POINT. TURN-KEY UPPER WEST SIDE CLASSIC PRE-WAR HOME. PERFECTLY RENOVATED WITH A MODERN AESTHETIC. Stunningly reimagined to suit a modern aesthetic and lifestyle, this triple-mint pre-war property is turn-key and ready to be your new home. Gutted to the studs, the reconfiguration and redesign of the original Classic 6 layout into a sophisticated loft-style space that showcases park vistas from every spot in the apartment exceeds expectations. Upon entering the open and expansive gallery, you are welcomed with direct Central Park views that will take your breath away. Gorgeous herringbone floors pull you into the impressively scaled step-down living room.

With its 25’ by 14’7’ proportions and 9’4’’ high ceilings, this grand room is equally suitable for formal use or casual gatherings. Similar views abound in the den, originally the second bedroom. Opened to create a lofty expanse and allow for the stunning backdrop of Central Park to be enjoyed from any vantage point in the apartment, it can easily be re-enclosed into a private bedroom again. Beautiful custom cabinetry houses a home office and exceptional storage.

The original gallery, dining room and kitchen walls were also opened and seamlessly combined to create a space ideal for entertaining, yet comfortable and intimate enough for everyday living. In concert with the 28 feet of Central Park frontage provided by the living room and den, the enhanced flow of this apartment is nothing short of spectacular. On one end, the custom banquette and chandelier were placed to easily accommodate dining for 8-10, although there is room for a much larger arrangement. At the other end is a kitchen more befitting of a suburban house than NYC apartment.

Brilliantly designed, the kitchen has been expertly outfitted to any chef’s delight with sprawling Torba finished Eurostone countertops and Waterworks tile backsplash. The suite of top-of-the-line Thermador appliances includes a Professional 4-burner with griddle stove and overhead hood with external venting, refrigerator with icemaker, and dishwasher, as well as an undercounter Sharp Microwave Insight Pro. Custom cabinetry provides a plethora of storage and features soft close doors and drawers, pull-out shelving and drawers, and under- and in-cabinet lighting throughout. Anchoring the space is an expansive center island with bar stool seating.

Designed with an over-size sink, Waterworks faucet, hot water and filtration system, dishwasher, cabinet storage, hidden trash container, and electrical outlets, it is as practical as it is beautiful. The ultra-spacious primary bedroom is the epitome of luxury with its gorgeous sunrise views of the park through a wall of east-facing windows. This bespoke private suite is replete with a separate dressing area and marble-topped vanity, four sets of custom-designed closets, and ensuite windowed bath with cabinets for bath linens and supplies. Both the primary and secondary bathrooms (also windowed) feature walk-in showers outfitted with Waterworks glass doors, Waterworks tumbled marble tile, Speakman shower heads, Toto toilets, Kohler pedestal sinks, chrome fixtures, shower niches for storage, radiant-heated flooring, and pocket doors.

No detail was overlooked in this renovation: the floors, casement windows and doors were replaced, thru-wall AC units were enclosed in custom cabinetry, electric and plumbing upgrades were made, overhead lighting and wall sconces were added, and a sound system was installed. Although fully modernized, classic pre-war features such as crown and baseboard moldings, oak flooring, beamed ceilings, and beautiful doorknobs and closet pulls were retained. What was formerly the staff quarters has been converted into a combination laundry and utility room.

Within this windowed space you’ll find a full-size washer and dryer (with exterior venting), large utility sink, two walls of closets, and a designated electronics closet housing the Crescendo system which integrates and controls the audio/lighting/cooling systems. 55 Central Park West sometimes referred to as the ’Ghostbusters’ building is an iconic Art Deco pre-war gem designed by the renowned architects Schwartz & Gross. Built in 1929, this landmarked building in the CPW Historic District is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places and earned awards in 2019 for its exquisite lobby restoration. A well-established co-op, 55 Central Park West offers premiere white glove service with a full-time staff, two-full time doormen, a live-in Resident Manager, and Building Link Communication system.

The building also boasts a beautifully landscaped roof terrace with exceptional panoramic views, as well as playroom, bike room, storage bins, and laundry. Pets and pied-a-terre ownership permitted. Building allows 50% financing of the first $1M and 33% of the remainder.

2% flip tax. Situated on Central Park West at the corner of West 66th Street, the building is superbly located in close proximity to a dazzling array of cultural institutions and entertainment. At your doorstep: Lincoln Center, Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle, Carnegie Hall, the Theater District, Museum of Modern Art, and an amazing variety of restaurants (including the iconic Tavern on the Green across the street), cafes, and shops on the Upper West Side and Midtown West. Easy access to multiple subway and bus lines offer convenient transportation to anywhere else you wish to go.
