Description

This luxurious 4 bedroom, 4 full and 1 half bathroom home situated on the 18th floor in the prestigious Walker Tower boasts an expansive 4,871 SF+/- of interior space, 698 SF+/- of outdoor space, and unobstructed views of downtown Manhattan and the Hudson River. Spanning the entire south side of the 18th floor, the residence offers dynamic view shots along with incredible western-facing sunsets.

Built before neighborhood height limits were enacted, Walker Tower is advantaged with 360-degree panoramas of Manhattan and the Hudson River. The duplex is flooded with light from custom windows on triple exposures showcasing beautiful views from every room.

Airy ceilings, custom millwork, hand-laid French herringbone oak floors, and top-of-the-line finishes grace the living space. State-of-the-art details include radiant floor heating, Crestron home automation, built-in humidification, ultra-quiet central air, and a
dedicated ventilation system.

With ample space, the gracious main level melds flow and functionality with sophisticated style. An elegant foyer invites you into the spacious living room with picture windows and coffered ceilings, set adjacent to the dining room, both accessing the elongated 413 SF+/- southern-facing terrace.

The residence is only one of two homes in Walker Tower to have a separate dining room, which also has access to the Southern outdoor terrace. The custom Smallbone eat-in kitchen in the southwest corner is equipped with marble and limestone countertops, Dornbracht fixtures, a supreme Sub-Zero, Viking and Miele appliance package, and Franke water filtration. The kitchen and the second bedroom suite lead out to the second, 285 SF+/- terrace.

At the opposite corner, the private master suite, replete with natural light, enjoys stunning views and opens to the terrace.

A walk-in closet and spa-quality bathroom with custom marble details, cast iron soaking tub, steam shower and Waterworks fixtures
complete the spacious retreat.

The second level is occupied by two bedroom suites with full bathrooms, a media room, and one of two full-size laundry rooms. Two light-bathed bedroom suites with custom marble bathrooms and generous closets. Enjoy spectacular views of Manhattan and the Hudson River from both bedrooms.

Completing the upper level is a media room, which may also be utilized as a sitting room, office, or library.
