Description

High design in the sky with total attention to every detail at the incomparable Museum Tower, one of Manhattan’s most iconic white glove residences. Conceived by famed architect, Cesar Pelli, as part of a redesigned Museum of Modern Art in 1983, this stunning apartment home has been completely renovated with the highest level of finishes. Located on the 33rd floor with quintessential Manhattan skyline views, the angled windows spanning the width of the living room with built in storage underneath offer quintessential city skyline vistas and sunlight all day. The entry to 33-C has a powder room featuring a custom-crafted, StonePeak porcelain vanity with Fantini fixtures and a Bosch washer and dryer located in a service closet with additional ample storage space. European light oak plank flooring continues from the foyer throughout the apartment, welcoming guests to a light and bright South-facing open plan living room and gourmet kitchen made for entertaining. The chef’s Poliform kitchen features appliances from Gagganeu, a Bosch dishwasher and refrigerator and two Miele ovens - one of which is a combination microwave and convection. The generously sized bedroom is spacious with wonderful light and large closets fully fitted with custom craftsmanship offering bespoke storage and space.

The spa-like en-suite bathroom with marble and bright white porcelain features a large glass shower and top of the line fixtures from Fantini and a Toto toilet with electric washlet. Located close to Fifth Avenue and Central Park, Carnegie Hall, Rockefeller Center and the elegant shops on Madison Avenues and distinguished by its fine architecture and superb amenities, Museum Tower is a modern classic with an attentive, white-gloved staff, offering security and privacy with optional “hotel-level quality” maid, laundry and valet services. Amenities include full-time doorman and concierge service, a newly renovated and upgraded state-of-art fitness center, conference room and beautifully landscaped roof terrace overlooking the MoMA gardens, incredible media and conference rooms, a business center, wine-tasting room with coolers, and complimentary storage bins! Pied a terre and corporate ownership, pets and financing are permitted. A transfer tax of two (2) percent of the purchase price is payable by the Purchaser.
