Description

Classic prewar architecture meets contemporary design and function in this magnificent triple mint, high floor and light-filled, 3,500 square foot, 4+ bedroom, prewar cooperative apartment on Central Park West. Located at the St. Urban, one of the city’s grand beaux arts apartment houses, this spectacular residence with soaring 10.5 foot ceilings offering 57 feet of breathtaking, unobstructed views of Central Park and the Reservoir, perfectly blends the distinctive hallmarks of prewar living with a modern sensibility appealing to the most discerning buyer.

No expense was spared and no detail was overlooked in this inspired two year gut renovation. From the semi-private landing, the gracious 23 foot gallery opens onto the palatial 46 foot double living room with three oversized windows, each offering a distinctive yet equally impressive view of the Park, the Reservoir and the majestic Upper East Side and Central Park West skylines. Spectacular both by day and night ,the apartment is perfect for large scale entertaining, intimate dinner parties or quiet enjoyment. There is a handsome decorative fireplace, custom built-ins and ample wall space to display one’s art collection.

Beautiful herringbone floors, elevated door frames and moldings throughout. One of the bedroom suites faces Central Park and features an enormous walk-in closet and dressing area, complete with a huge windowed bathroom reminiscent of a five star hotel. The private wing of the residence is accessed by a large hallway and has three additional bedrooms, one currently configured as an inviting home office, perfect for working from home. The enormous Primary Bedroom Suite is nothing short of sensational, offering a sitting/TV room, a spacious bedroom with wonderful western light from the oversized window, custom walk-in closets, a dressing area and a fabulous bathroom.

All the bathrooms are large and feature stunning white statuary marble, Waterworks fixtures and pewter limestone. There is also a sizable laundry area. The apartment can easily be reconfigured as a five bedroom apartment. The oversized windowed chef’s eat in kitchen is a showstopper and was brilliantly designed so that one can take in the views of the Park while preparing meals on the large marble island or eating at the table.

With white marble countertops and top of the line stainless steel appliances (Wolf range, Sub Zero fridge, Miele dishwasher), two sinks, a walk-through pantry and a large climate-controlled custom walk-in wine fridge, both cooking and entertaining are a delight! The St. Urban, designed by Robert T. Lyons in 1905, is distinguished by its unique Beaux-Art style and architectural features including a distinctive mansard roof, round corner tower and copper dormers.

A full service building with just 52 residences and two apartments per landing, 285 Central Park West offers a Resident Manager, 24-hour doormen and two porters, providing best in class service and security to shareholders. Amenities include a state of the art gym, a basketball court, central laundry, and a bicycle room. Pet Friendly.

Financing up to 50% permitted. There is a 2% flip tax paid by the purchaser. This residence combines all the charm and sought-after architectural details of prewar apartments with the spacious closets and bathrooms typical of a new development.
