The second you step off the elevator and into this one-of-a-kind, stunning penthouse, a sensation of warmth and sophistication calms you—you are home. You are greeted by gorgeous, handcrafted Tabu woodwork, along with full slabs of imported Zebrino marble, while natural light pours in from the windows overlooking cobblestoned Mercer Street. As you move across wide, quarter sawn, stained oak floors, you encounter the first of several inviting sitting areas, adorned with large art walls and a full-length gray soapstone fireplace that frames the entryway. Every square inch of this impeccably designed space exudes craftsmanship and attention to detail. Enter the spacious windowed dining area, currently featuring a custom table that can comfortably accommodate the dinner party of your dreams, with innumerable guests. Adjacent to the dining area is an open gourmet chef’s kitchen, which can be closed off by electronic shades, allowing servers to prep privately. The custom kitchen includes imported Tabu cabinetry; Nanz custom hardware; Glassos countertops; a Concetto Puro white quartz island; a Bendheim glass backsplash; a Sub-Zero refrigerator; two Miele dishwashers; and three professional Wolf ovens, with a vented hood and a six-burner stovetop and grill, accompanied by a warming drawer. The kitchen also includes an island and custom banquette, illuminated by a brilliantly lit, custom-poured resin walls imported from England. Tucked behind the kitchen is a sizable pantry, complete with a Viking wine refrigerator; separate laundry area, with two full-sized washer/dryer units; extra storage and cabinetry; and an auxiliary 48” Sub-Zero refrigerator. An additional large storage room and gym are located in the basement of the residence. The first level encompasses a full floor of the building and is finished with handcrafted plasterwork, highlighting an artfully made floating underlit ceiling. The shades on the 24 custom, insulated, and landmark-approved windows, along with the integrated audiovisual and multi-zoned air-conditioning and heating, are all controlled by a Savant system. A junior master suite rests on the first floor, containing silk carpets; a massive walk-in closet; a window-encased limestone spa, with top-of-the-line Toto, Geberit, and Duravit fixtures; a double-head steam shower; a custom Corian soaking tub and double sink; and a separate water closet. There are also two additional equally sized side-by-side bedrooms, with custom plasterwork, silk carpets, large closets, and en suite Bianca Nambian stone bathrooms, featuring Artistic Tile backsplashes and shower walls and Duravit fixtures. Meanwhile, the powder room is furnished with Starlight Field Artistic Tile walls, Opal Ice floors, a glass vanity, and Geberit and Nanz fixtures. A practical office area is also situated in this part of the home. Back in the full-length main area, you can adjourn from the dining room to the rear living area, which is raised and exhibits additional art walls. This entire living area transforms into a 9 speaker surround sound theater with a 120” hidden art lift television and projector, specially crafted inset shelves, and a chic floating staircase. The half-floor master suite is located on the second level. Stepping through a discrete, brushed brass-plated door, you’ll find a library, doubling as an office. The rich, natural tones of the walnut are the embodiment of a classic office, offering the comfort and solitude often sought after in a workspace. Once through the library, you enter the master bedroom, a luxurious retreat replete with parchment walls; wall-to-wall silk carpeting; resin-poured, crystalized nightstands; molded brass-panel shelving; silk drapes; a fireplace; a tranquil sitting area; and the finest lighting available. In addition to custom hidden paneling, shelves, drawers, and closets, the suite includes an integrated custom bar with 30” Sub-Zero refrigerator drawers. The spacious dressing room and master closet are concealed behind a paneled door, providing an envious space of handcrafted millwork, including linen inlet drawers, shelves, and cabinetry designed to store and showcase the highest haute couture. The windowed master bath is the epitome of serenity. The second your feet feel the heated large slabs of Bianco Sheer marble, your mind and body are rejuvenated. The double sinks and makeup vanity are constructed with beautiful Quarzo Bianco stone and Bendheim glass. Additionally, the master bath is adorned with custom fixtures and lighting, a triple-rain steam shower, a Toto water closet, and a soaking tub. With carefully refined details and the highest levels of craftsmanship and materials, this residence offers quite simply one of the finest master suites in the entire city. On the third level of the home is the private indoor/outdoor living area, which fuses mid-century modern elegance and casual entertainment. Three sides of floor-to-ceiling Nano doors seamlessly blend the indoor living space with the outdoor roof deck. Whether you are relaxing by the fireplace or entertaining on the double-level terrace, your eyes are drawn from one striking feature to another. The lighted Onyx backsplash accents the wet bar, the focal point of the interior, while also featuring surround sound and a 60" In-Ceiling TV lift.
