Description

Penthouse Two (PH2) at Walker Tower is an unparalleled full floor residence of grand proportions, masterfully designed by Ralph Walker. Over 6,700 interior square feet and nearly 500 square feet of private outdoor space. Penthouse Two offers awe-inspiring, unobstructed 360-degree views of the skyline, harbor and rivers, captivated through dramatic floor-to-ceiling tilt-and-turn windows.

The magnificent space includes five gracious bedrooms, five-and-a-half well-appointed baths, three wood-burning fireplaces, and a spacious north-facing terrace. Penthouse Two presents French herringbone oak flooring equipped with radiant heating throughout, coffered ceilings, and custom-designed millwork and lighting. Fully pre-wired with the latest technological conveniences, the residence offers a Crestron Home Automation System, a built-in humidification system, an ultra-quiet central air conditioning system and a dedicated ventilation system.

Custom Smallbone of Devizes kitchen features marble and limestone countertops, Dornbracht fixtures, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, wine cooler and under-counter refrigerator/freezer drawers, an induction cooktop, wall oven and warming drawer by Viking, speed oven and built-in coffee maker by Miele, and a Franke water filtration system. All bathrooms have custom marble details and the master bath offers a freestanding cast iron bathtub, a steam shower with body sprays and rain, handheld and standard showerheads by Waterworks as well as a Waterworks heated towel rack. This impeccable residence was built for the comfort of living and entertaining.

The floorplan was meticulously created in such that the bedrooms are conveniently separated from the living, dining, and kitchen quarters. Walker Tower's comprehensive amenities and services package includes a 24-hour doorman, concierge, library lounge with pantry and bar, refrigerated storage for deliveries, fitness center with yoga room and sauna, children's playroom, bike storage room, and landscaped common roof deck with dining area, sun lawn, observation area and covered cabana room. Walker Tower is the historic restoration and expansion of a former telephone building designed in 1929 by Ralph Walker into the finest luxury apartment building in New York City.

The conversion incorporated the building's original design details and includes all of the conveniences of modern, upscale residential living. The elaborate brick facade has been painstakingly restored and new facade elements have been constructed in the spirit of the Art Deco ornamentation that Ralph Walker made famous through architectural masterpieces in New York City. Conveniently located within walking distance to some of the finest restaurants such as, L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon, Morimoto, Del Posto, and Eleven Madison Park.

Also a short walk to Wholefoods, The Whitney Museum, Chelsea Market, Google HQ, and several parks such as the Highline, Madison Square Park, Union Square Park, and Washington Square Park. This spectacular residence must be seen in person to be truly appreciated! Show more
