Description

Combining superb sophistication and craftsmanship with the intimate feeling of home, Residence 60B at 53 West 53 comprises 3,132 square feet, offering three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, and north-, south-, east-, and west-facing exposures. Gracious proportions and ceilings ranging up to approximately 11 feet set the awe-inspiring stage for world-renowned designer, Thierry Despont, to craft residences with many custom elements typically reserved for privately commissioned homes. These museum-quality finishes coalesce with expressive architecture by Pritzker Prize-winner Jean Nouvel to create singular spaces of unsurpassed grandeur and elegance in both scale and proportion.

From the formal entry gallery, the generous living room is lined on two sides with floor-to-ceiling windows that artfully frame north-facing views of Central Park as well as striking south- and west-facing vistas overlooking the Manhattan skyline and Hudson River. Beyond a seamless pocket door awaits the custom kitchen by Thierry Despont for Molteni, where polished statuary marble countertops and a back-lit statuary marble backsplash complement back-painted glass cabinetry with polished nickel detailing and Dornbracht fixtures. The extensive suite of appliances by Miele and Sub-Zero includes a fully integrated refrigerator and freezer, five-burner cooktop with fully vented hood, integrated dishwasher, wall oven, speed oven, under-counter wine refrigerator, and integrated coffee maker.

The corner primary suite offers south- and east-facing views, multiple closets including one sprawling walk-in and spa-like ensuite bathroom that blends tradition and originality.

Elegantly appointed in polished Noir St. Laurent marble, high-honed Verona limestone, and polished Persian golden travertine with polished nickel Dornbracht fixtures throughout, the primary bathroom features two separate custom carved vanities with custom Thierry Despont-designed polished nickel automated mirrors, a cast iron Lefroy Brooks soaking tub, freestanding shower, radiant heated floors, and private water closet with commode and bidet. Two additional bedrooms with south-facing views each offer an en suite bathroom clad in high-honed Verona limestone with polished nickel Dornbracht fixtures.

Completing the residence is a beautifully appointed windowed powder room and a discreet utility closet with washer and vented dryer. No detail has been overlooked, from the custom interior lighting design by Thierry Despont in collaboration with Schwinghammer, to the motorized Lutron solar shades throughout with additional blackout shades in each bedroom, to the supply of humidified and filtered fresh air throughout the home.

53 West 53 is a sculptural icon, rising 1,050 feet in the heart of Manhattan against the cinematic backdrop of Central Park and the surrounding cityscape. Designed to be responsive to residents in every way, 53 West 53 offers 30,000 square feet of amenities and five-star hotel-level service, bringing an unprecedented level of access and refinement to the residential experience.
