Description

Unprecedented, custom-built, and finished in 2020, this architecturally significant Penthouse Oasis features panoramic, protected views, a private rooftop featuring a full-sized pool & hot tub, and private parking in the basement directly accessed via the building elevators. No expense was spared in this multi-year renovation of this impossible-to-replicate triplex penthouse at the crossroads of Ladies Mile, Flatiron, and Chelsea, moments from Union Square and Greenwich Village. While the finishes and fixtures are of the highest order, equally impressive is this rare, ultra-wide space that affords exceptional light and views to the South, North, East, and West with hundreds of feet of frontage and 40 large windows.

The New York firm DHD ARCHITECTURE AND INTERIOR DESIGN - with principals David Howell and Steffani Aarons - designed this trophy apartment that occupies the entire 18th and 19th floors of the building along with most of the 17th floor, all connected via a striking spiral stairway, its solid sides coated in the same Venetian Plaster that covers the apartment walls. A glamorous custom Lindsey Adelman chandelier with delicate brass chains and a gold foil lining cascades down the staircase’s center. All floors are accessed via two elevators.

The elevator doors open on the middle level to reveal an expansive living and dining space with an adjacent kitchen with barrel-vaulted ceilings over the living and dining areas. Immediately you are struck by the breathtaking southern light and humanly scaled views all the way down to the Freedom Tower and beyond. The open kitchen features walnut cabinets, antiqued hand-blown-glass upper cabinet fronts, bronze and shagreen hardware by Christina Z.

Antonio. The level of millwork and appliances are simply peerless. Opposite the staircase is a home office/music/bar area that features walls lined in walnut and with bookcases, a marble-backed bar, and an alcove banquette covered in a richly textured, subtly colored fabric.

At the end of the corridor, a three-sided study and media room that hovers above the Flatiron District like a helicopter has walnut paneling and bookshelves, the inside backs of which are lacquered in Herms orange. At the opposite end of this floor are three-bedroom suites each with a bathroom and ample closet space, plus a nanny’s room and a laundry closet. The seamless mechanicals - including ducted zoned air conditioning, fully integrated lighting and sound, etc - are as impressive as the more visual elements.

Specialized paint and plaster finishes, wood paneling, wallpaper, and textured fabrics, in addition to walnut floors, create a tactile sense of depth throughout. A powder room with backlit walls of Patagonia Granite and Herve Van Der Straten sconces completes the glamor quotient of this swell floor, truly a "New York Moment" at its best. Below this floor is a guest suite wing perfectly positioned with its own separate entrance.

A large light-filled playroom with its own kitchenette, workout area, and additional laundry make this floor an invaluable addition to this remarkable home. On the top floor, a primary bedroom suite transports you to a lifestyle impossible to imagine: its restrained opulence combined with dreamy light and views is evident everywhere from the triple exposure bedroom with its wood, bronze, leather, and fabric headboard flanked by bronze and rock crystal pendant lights by Pagani Studio, and a fireplace surrounded by Grigio Collemandina marble, to the massive closets that would be the envy of the most fastidious couture aficionado to the en suite bathroom, a symphony of slab marble and Walnut. Last but not least, this penthouse boasts the ultimate crown: an expansive roof terrace with a full-sized swimming pool and hot tub all engulfed with panoramic views in all directions of Lower Manhattan.

An outdoor kitchen affords the opportunity for alfresco entertaining at its best. A pergola shelters the outdoor dining area and can be angled to let light in or close to act as a solid roof in more inclement weather. The penthouse is perched atop a newly built condominium designed by Morris Adjmi Architects with an elegant facade crafted of handmade Danish white brick.

The building features a 24-hour attended lobby, a fitness center, a children’s playroom, bicycle storage, a screening room with a wet bar, a residents’ lounge with a billiards table and catering kitchen, and a landscaped terrace with a grilling area as well as parking accessed directly in the building. Centered in Downtown Manhattan, this location offers every convenience including a vast variety of restaurants, retail, galleries, parks, cultural and educational institutions, the Union Square Farmers Market, and so much more. Moments from Union Square, Greenwich Village, the West Chelsea Arts District as well as recently opened Hudson Yards, this home represents the pinnacle of Downtown living at its finest.
