The elegant foyer, with its own powder room, leads into the bright entertainment area, consisting of an open living room, a spacious dining corner and an intimate cocktail lounge. The latter, designed and built by Atelier Jean-Paul Violett, is decorated in a rare, book-matched myrtle burl veneer and alpine calf skin upholstery.
The surfaces are finished in authentic Venetian plaster and the floors feature large Black Galaxy slabs with matching, continuous baseboards. The walls are also designed for hanging artwork without any visible hardware. The whole of Central Park is the gorgeous backdrop to this uniquely customized living space.
The windowed open-concept chefs kitchen is in stainless steel fabricated by Bulthaup in Germany and equipped with top of the line Gaggenau appliances. A graceful TV lounge with wood built-ins complements this space.
The master bedroom, which has been fully sound-proofed, overlooks the Park. The ample amount of closet space is elegantly concealed behind custom-built rare Makassar Ebony cabinetry. A hidden tv screen is cleverly positioned inside the windowsill. The sleek en-suite master in book-matched statuary Calacatta marble features a steam chamber and an elegant tv screen.
The generous second bedroom is currently configured as an office den, decorated with elegant woodwork and glass cabinetry. The adjacent bathroom features stainless steel fixtures, a shower and a cusom-build full-body Jacuzzi. The apartment is complemented by a large laundry room and a spacious walk-in closet.
The unit is equipped with surround sound. All electronics are controlled by the latest generation Lutron system. The prominent doors are finished in book-matched French mahogany veneers surrounded entirely with custom-made nickel-plated brass frames. All the custom metal work throughout the unit was hand fabricated exclusively by Les Metalliers Champenois. The apartment is independently cooled with two air handlers and customized high velocity apertures; humidification is central for the entire unit.
Sharing the elevator landing with only one other apartment, privacy is guaranteed.
