Description

Surrounded by 360-degree views of Manhattan, this gracious, full-floor penthouse atop Walker Tower is a triumph of architectural pedigree, contemporary design, and extraordinary craftsmanship. Built in 1929, Walker Tower was designed in the Art Deco style by the renowned Ralph Thomas Walker, whom Frank Lloyd Wright referred to as "the only other honest architect in America." In 2012, Cetra Ruddy, one of New York's most distinguished architectural teams, reimagined the downtown icon to create 47 impeccable condominium residences. Here acclaimed interior designer Bradley Bayou maximized the tower’s original grandeur and cityscape vistas, infusing this penthouse with every 21st-century luxury and reinterpreting its remarkable scale with a seamlessly modern layout complemented by two private terraces and three wood-burning fireplaces.



Featuring river views framed by floor-to-ceiling windows, the penthouse offers three entertaining spaces including the 45-by-23-foot great room, complete with Venetian plaster walls, an Italian marble wood-burning fireplace, and a full-service wet bar. The handsomely appointed dining room features coffered ceilings and custom lighting by Jean De Merry, while the inviting media room is wrapped in Kneedler Fauchere wallcoverings and equipped with state-of-the-art technology. Tucked off the great room is the stunning library with another wood-burning fireplace finished in rare laboradorite stone.

Situated against corner views of the open city and Empire State Building through four floor-to-ceiling windows, the eat-in kitchen is equipped with custom Smallbone of Devizes cabinetry, Dornbracht fixtures, marble and limestone countertops, two full-sized Sub-Zero refrigerators, two dishwashers, a Viking double oven, a Viking 6-burner vented stovetop, a Miele steam oven, and a 75-bottle wine cooler by Sub-Zero.

The pristine master suite is a sanctuary featuring a white quartzite wood-burning fireplace, private terrace, and an expansive ensuite bathroom.

Here, no expense is spared; from the heated toilet seats by Toto with motion-sensing controls and touchless bidet functions to the chromotherapy-enabled soaking tub and custom closet system by Porro. A separate guest wing, with optional private entry, houses two more bedrooms, each with ensuite bathrooms and ample closet space, a kitchenette outfitted with Miele and Fisher & Paykel appliances, and a deluxe laundry room. The fourth bedroom is located on the north side of the apartment and also includes an ensuite custom marble bathroom.



Connecting each space is a touchscreen Crestron panel that allows for room-by-room control of light, temperature, window shades, and sound systems. Yet, beyond these many visible luxuries, the home is awash in elements both hidden and rarefied: hydronic radiant floor heating, ultra-quiet fan coil air conditioning system, and built-in humidification and ventilation systems that distribute balanced outside air throughout.

Additional bespoke upgrades include: interior walls constructed with two layers of Quietrock to provide superior sound attenuation, protective metal covers installed to protect the radiant flooring system tubing, and conduit pipes with maintenance access points to house all wiring for audio/video, security, lighting and shades.

The residents of Walker Tower enjoy an exclusive array of amenities such as 24-hour attended lobby and private concierge; landscaped common roof deck with dining area; sun lawn, observation area and covered cabana room; fully-equipped fitness center; yoga room; sauna; steam room; bicycle storage room; children's playroom; library lounge with pantry and bar.
