Description

Brazilian Modern Aesthetic - Custom Built-Ins Throughout - Pin-Drop Quiet Oasis - Flooded with Western Light

Introducing an unparalleled living experience at 551 W 21st Street, where luxury meets sophistication in this meticulously crafted 2-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom residence. Inspired by the works of Oscar Niemeyer, Lina Bo Bardi, and Jorge Almeida, no expense was spared in creating this aspirational "Brazilian Modern" designed oasis.

Residence 4A offers refined elegance where every detail has been thoughtfully considered.

Throughout this 2000+ sqft home, floors have been expertly refinished, and the finest textiles were incorporated throughout the apartment, including top-tier vendors such as Raf Simons, Sandra Jordan, and Holland & Sherry. With extensive built-ins, custom furniture, and some of the most impressive millwork done today, 4A is a special property for the most discerning buyer. For a feel of how luxurious and extravagant the renovation is, the following details are just part of the larger story: Ikonni slatted walls (full height), walnut primary vanity, honed Ombra Nero stone-framed entryway, rift white oak nightstands, and Novona travertine in abundance.

Throughout the home, impeccable attention to detail reigns supreme.

From the foyer window surround crafted from 2 cm Navona Travertine Honed to the custom stone hood in the kitchen, every element exudes unparalleled craftsmanship. Entertainment and convenience are at your fingertips with integrated AV and Lutron Switching throughout, seamlessly controlled by House Systems. Invisible speakers discreetly envelop the space, while Nest Thermostats ensure optimal comfort year-round.

Particularly noteworthy is the sound attenuation at 551 W21; despite the bustle of the City outside, once inside the apartment, a zen-like calm envelops those in residence.

It is pin-drop quiet and flooded with western light.

The living and dining area boasts a ceiling with perimeter lighting, creating a warm ambiance for entertaining or relaxation. A custom Ikonni slatted wall graces several key areas, including the entry hallway, living room, banquette, and primary bedroom, exuding both style and functionality, while floating shelves with light channels in the living room add a touch of contemporary flair. The massive gourmet kitchen comes complete with a custom walnut island with stone countertops and backsplash throughout, with high-end appliances seamlessly integrating into the space, including a U-Line Beverage Center with a custom panel.

Custom closets are located throughout the home and are outfitted by City Closets, offering ample storage solutions tailored to your needs. The office, laundry, entry, and primary bedroom closets are thoughtfully designed with integrated lighting, adjustable shelving, and angle pulls for effortless organization.

The primary suite is captivating, where you’ll find a custom walnut vanity standing as a testament to exquisite design. Integrated draw pulls, custom stain color, and a Rubio Monocoat finish elevate its allure.

The primary spa-like bath features luxurious Ombra Nero Honed stone, epitomizing opulence at every turn.

Nestled along the banks of the Hudson River, 551 West 21st Street stands as a beacon of modern luxury, promising an extraordinary living experience. Developed by Scott Resnick, a member of the respected multi-generational family of NYC builders, to the highest standards, this building is Foster + Partners’ (Sir Norman Foster’s) first US residential project and has instantly become an iconic presence for High Line adjacent living.

Within its walls, residents are treated to an array of lavish amenities, including a secluded drive court/port cochere ensconced by a verdant 20-foot green wall, an impressive 34-foot double-height lobby adorned with a dazzling chandelier, and round-the-clock services provided by attentive doormen, concierges, porters, and valets. Additional offerings include a state-of-the-art fitness center, spa facilities for both men and women, a serene yoga room, a chic residents’ lounge, a delightful children’s playroom, convenient bike storage, and a dedicated service entrance.
