**Introducing 410 West 24th Street, PHA: The Premier Penthouse in Chelsea's true landmarked icon, London Terrace Towers.**
Unveiled for the first time since its sponsor sale in 2009, this immaculate execution of decadent elegance is available with NO BOARD APPROVAL.
Featuring triple wrap terraces, quadruple exposures, ceilings of 11', a wood burning fireplace, and rare materials throughout, this residence, featured on the cover of ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST and designed by Mark Janson of Janson Goldstein is a handsome exemplification of classically modern living, playfully contained within the context of this 1929 architectural masterpiece.
Drawing inspiration from Rosario Candela, 1940's cinema, "vintage" modern art, mid-century modern furniture, and the furious world of high-fashion, every niche and crevice of this home sings a song of serene, sumptuous living and grandiose entertaining.
Upon entry, one lands upon the ornate herringbone patterned vestibule of fumed oak, which delightfully separates the twin entertaining spaces in that wing of the home: to the South, the eat-in Kitchen; to the north, the Great Room and Library .
In the Kitchen, one has the finest of accoutrements: Thermador oven, Sub Zero refrigerator and double freezers, ash coloured Ceasar Stone, and an in-island television, which is cleverly concealed from sight but perfectly viewable from multiple vantages once exposed.
In the Great Room, which is the perfect New York showcase for entertaining on scales both intimate and large,the principal interior focus is, of course, the charcoal marble mantled wood burning fireplace, which draws one's vision to its comely resting place. It is the perfect space for large parties and from almost every corner of it, one can see The Empire State Building, the skyline of old-world Midtown, and the pitch perfect Hudson Yards. All views are unobstructed and unlike any other vista in Manhattan. This same panorama is available from the Library, which is adjacent to both it and the Study.
Passing along through the Library, the corner Study sits peacefully in the Northwest corner of the home, giving one views of the Hudson River and a peripheral experience akin to that of the Great Room (but visually dampened enough to enhance the efficiency of endeavors both creative and capitalist).
The Master Suite, which absorbs a quarter of the apartment's living space, is located in the Southwest corner. With twin bathrooms, twin walk in closets, and twin exposures, one could very well say that it is the perfect place for two. The lavatories are adorned with Calacatta stone, Anne Sacks "vein-cut marble tile", and Waterworks fixtures. The walk in closets are designed to the most minute detail.
This, of course, brings us to the terrace with 360 degree views, which is, without exaggeration, the residence's crown jewel. It can be accessed by 15 soundproofed casement glass doors strategically located throughout to ensure summer cross breezes and river winds. Cloudless sunshine, well-hewed sunsets, and pristine moonlit evenings can be enjoyed from many vantages.
Other features of the home include state-of-the-art tech, flush-mounted audio components, high-powered water pump to ensure high-pressure from every faucet and shower head, outdoor lighting, dual zoned AC and heat, fully irrigated terrace landscaping, pocket-doors to ensure room usage flexibility, and brand new plumbing / electrical systems.
In 2016, London Terrace Towers repointed its brick and refinished its lobbies. The gym was just renovated and the one-of-a-kind, stunning Art Deco pool is one of the most beautiful in the city. There is an on-site garage and storage. Doormen are 24 hrs and the superintendent on-site.
The gravitas of this complex and this Penthouse are not to be taken lightly, nor should this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity be missed.
**Currently configured as a one bedroom with home office and library, this residence can easily be converted into a two or three bedroom domicile
