Description

AS FEATURED IN THE WALL STREET JOURNAL Sitting above the sky between Central Park the Museum of Modern Art, this palatial 4 bedroom, 5-and-a-half-bathroom combination corner condo is a rare opportunity for views of the iconic Billionaire’s Row skyline and Central Park from sunrise to sunset in a one of Midtown’s most coveted towers. Spanning over 4,500 square feet on the 36th floor, Residence 36AEF greets you with an oversized 36-foot-wide living room that is drenched by natural light coming in from the soaring floor-to-ceiling windows that look out over triple North, West, and East exposures and Central Park. The loft-like living and dining area seamlessly flows into the designer chef’s kitchen that features an extra-wide Corian waterfall island, a 6-burner Miele gas range, Subzero refrigerator, and complete with custom cabinetry throughout. The primary suite lies on the opposite wing of the home and boasts a walk-through dressing room that opens into a spa-like en-suite bathroom that includes a luxurious deep-soaking tub, rainfall shower, and porcelain Duravit vanity. A trio of spacious bedrooms sit next to the primary suite, and each featuring floor-to-ceiling windows, expansive closets, and an en-suite bathroom.

The home is finished with expansive closet space that lines the hallways and a private laundry room with a stacked Miele washer and dryer. Designed by award-winner Cesar Pelli as an adjunct to the Museum of Modern Art, the Museum Tower is a white-glove condominium renowned for its white-glove service including 24-hour doorman, concierge, and housekeeping services upon request. The tower features world class amenities like a newly renovated duplexed fitness center with sauna and steam facilities and Pilates room, a screening room, wine storage room, and landscaped roof terrace overlooking the MOMA gardens. Perfectly situated just moments away from flagship Fifth Avenue shopping and Michelin-starred restaurants, Museum Tower is at the heart of all Midtown has to offer.
