Upon entering the apartment the unrivaled level of quality and workmanship is evident. You are greeted in a spectacular foyer of rich marble flooring, extravagant black lacquered and gold-leaf gilded doors and moldings, and custom designed overhead lighting setting the stage for the opulence ahead of you. The layout of this 6 bedroom apartment, flows seamlessly radiating from the central entryway to every section of this (approx.) 4,415 square foot masterpiece. Just off the grand foyer you will find expansive communal entertaining spaces, the Chef's kitchen, and the Master Suite wing. You are invited, and encouraged, to walk through the unit slowly to appreciate the highest levels of craftsmanship that have gone into every aspect of this property. However, don't let the opulence distract you from the extraordinary views from every window - East to Central Park, West to the Hudson River and South for an extensive full view of the City. The building, One Central Park West, matches the stature of the apartment, as one of Manhattan's most prestigious and well-run addresses, unit #47BC is one of its largest apartments.
The Great Room, with its floor to ceiling windows, gives a breathtaking perspective of Columbus Circle, Central Park South, Midtown's most iconic buildings and the lower half of Central Park. It's difficult to peal yourself away from the glass walls. This wonderful space is a continuation of all the luxurious appointments; with additional custom built millwork, professionally designed and lit ceiling as well as parquet de Versailles wood floors saved and reconstructed from a French Chateau.
The formal Dining Room shares the reclaimed parquet flooring with the Great Room, anchoring the Eastern and Western edges (85' span) of the apartment in perfect symmetry. Here you can dine in a royal setting with calming views of the Hudson River. The attention to detail in every room is substantial, too broad to thoroughly catalogue. Some prime examples of the dedication and resources that have gone into #47BC include: four distinct types of marble flooring intricately laid for optimal design (Nero Marquina, Rosso Alicante, Crema Valencia & White Staturio), extensive custom built artisanal millwork in every room, gold-leaf gilding, exceptional storage with eight large walk-in closets/dressing rooms and a Chef's dream kitchen expertly equipped by Gaggenau and SubZero.
The Master Bath is so glamorous you would think it only existed in the movies or at the Duomo in Florence. Behold the enormous window view Jacuzzi tub surrounded by floor to ceiling Lapis Lazuli stone hand-picked by European craftsman with matching marble floors. Luxuriate in this Zen-inducing private spa just off of the expansive master bedroom. The master bedroom is exquisite with floor to ceiling windows, custom ceiling molding and lighting.
