A diamond in the sky, the Pierre Hotel's 29th floor residence comprises magnificent rooms polished with the rarest of finishes. Natural light breezes through this gracious four bedroom home, and every window offers unparalleled, picturesque views. Designed by Schultze & Weaver, and erected in 1929, the prestigious blond-brick Pierre Hotel peers over Central Park with unmatched pedigree. This full-floor co-op epitomizes luxury living and embodies all elements required of a timeless trophy property.
The elevator doors open to a spacious private entry foyer, composed of marble imported from France with a wrought-iron double door with etched-glass inlays. Upon entering, a formal gallery spans the width of the home, creating an opportune place to display treasured works of art. The living room and separate formal dining room feature tasteful accents, including hand-scored Venetian plaster dusted with mother of pearl accents, custom crystal light fixtures, and handmade, one-of-a-kind wallpaper. Crystalline accents continue in the stunning paneled library with a sculptural crystal chandelier - a work of art, in itself. An adjacent corner sitting room can easily function as a den or a guest bedroom. Rounding out the rooms of this wing is a large powder room and an additional guest bedroom, complete with an accompanying bathroom lit by a breathtaking Baccarat fixture.
To the right of the entrance, the recently-expanded dine-in kitchen accommodates lively activity. From the spacious central island to the milk glass and nickel cabinets, functional, modern attributes meet serene design. All appliances are brand new and top-of-the-line. A hidden door between the kitchen and dining room allows for easy entertaining. Nearby, another guest bedroom features Central Park views and an en-suite bath with rare onyx accoutrements. Ample closet space abounds.
Nothing compares to the master bedroom suite, which features a sitting room, multiple walk-in closets and two distinct, expansive bathrooms. The "his" option partners all-black wood walls with heated marble floors and mother-of-pearl inlay. The "her" bathroom is bathed in light from two walls of windows, and boasts gorgeous details including hand-designed shower mosaics, expansive mirrored built-ins, and a large marble vanity. As for the bedroom itself, elegant paneling conceals storage space everywhere, and large windows offer two exposures, with panoramic views of Central Park to the North. The master suite comprises the entire East Wing, and its distance from the social spaces in the home offers utmost privacy and unbroken quiet.
Under current ownership, all rooms were repurposed and enlarged to create a gracious, flowing layout. Each attributes calls for pause and appreciation - from the ornamental fireplace, to the antique Murano glass fixtures and hand-crafted custom woodwork. An opportunity like this rarely surfaces. And, of course, white-glove services - including twice-daily maid visits and 24-hour Concierge - underscore it all.
