Description

This stunning contemporary duplex is the wonderful result of a collaboration of John B. Murray’s amazing talent and timeless aesthetic and Jennifer Post’s brilliant and sophisticated modern design. The attention to detail in the creation of this home’s elegant, clean lines is unrivaled.

Off a semi private elevator enter onto the 16th floor and immediately you are welcomed with stunning southern light and open views over The Hayden Planetarium, Central Park and the Midtown skyline.

The dramatic staircase is an art piece which creates a double height for the library below, and ahead the living room and formal dining room, or double living room, have mesmerizing views of the Park, Planetarium and the midtown skyline. Off the dining room is a windowed entertaining butler’s pantry complete with a wine refrigerator, regular refrigerator, dishwasher drawers and storage for glasses.

The 16th floor library is a tranquil private space but also incredibly bright with partial glass walls and terrific open north views.

The fabulous windowed and bright chef’s eat-in kitchen has custom cabinetry and a vented stove. There are 2 of everything- ovens, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers and sinks and there are open views facing north and west all the way to New Jersey.

Endless counter space and cabinet and storage space as well as an office area and huge dining area make this kitchen a hub of the home. This kitchen is a true testament to timeless contemporary design and functionality. Off the kitchen is a full bathroom and extra pantry area.

Between the kitchen and the living space is a windowed den/TV room with open west views. This room could also be a formal dining room if one desired a double living room facing the Park.

Completing the 16th floor is a beautiful powder room and mud room/walk in entry closet.

As you descend the stunning double height staircase, you are greeted with the 15th floor relaxed library facing Central Park and the Planetarium. A cozy and comfortable space with a giant TV, it is also bright and special with its views!

The primary bedroom suite also faces the Park, the Planetarium and the Midtown skyline and has both brilliant light during the day and incredible views at night. This suite is very private with a luxurious spa like bathroom and an enormous walk in closet/dressing room complete with a refrigerator for evening snacks.

There are three more bedrooms on this floor, separated by an opaque glass pocket door, perfect for sleeping children or guests. Two of the bedrooms share a full bathroom with double vanity and the third bedroom is en suite with its own bathroom.

Each bedroom has a sizable closet and built in desk. Completing this area is a laundry room with full size vented washer dryer and extra refrigerator.

The special features of this home are endless. There are 14 zones of central air conditioning, soundproof windows, a Lutron lighting system and wiring for sound and automatic shades.

Glass pocket doors throughout offer discreet separation of spaces while maintaining the openness of the home.

The Beresford is one of the most elegant and best loved prewar landmark buildings on Central Park West. Designed by famed architect, Emery Roth, it was constructed in 1928 - 1929 and was converted to a cooperative in 1962. The staff is incomparable in their service and there is a state of the art gym.

Pets are welcome. Please note, there is a 2% flip tax.
