Re-designed and re-imagined, this top floor 3-bedroom penthouse duplex with 1,428sf private outdoor space has to be one of West Chelsea's most prized residences on arguably the most prized block of the neighborhood bracketed by 200 Eleventh Avenue and The Getty. Perched atop FIVE SIXTY West 24th Street, this recently completed Steven Harris designed limestone-clad landmark combines impressive grandeur with elegant restraint. Whisk past the intimate Jacaranda wood-paneled 24-hour attended lobby: the large elevator opens to reveal magnificent 13ft+ ceiling heights with floor-to-ceiling glass walls overlooking the expansive fully landscaped and furnished terrace, perfect for entertaining on a grand scale, with inspiring views towards Midtown Manhattan and the Empire State Building. An exterior wood-burning fireplace mirrors the interior fireplace clad in silver Travertine that is the focal point of the living room. Gleaming European oak floors are expertly laid in a Chevron pattern setting the tone of this perfect blend of Downtown cool and Uptown Rosario Candela-style chic. The dining area is serviced by a butler's kitchen and there is a powder room on this floor too.
A glass rail stairway leads you to the lower level, also accessed via the elevator. The gracious entry hall leads you to the large Great Room with expansive art-walls and an enormous open kitchen, splendidly equipped with a La Cornufe range, Sub Zero refrigeration, Miele dishwasher with Glassos crystalized glass counters and back splashes.The dreamy master bedroom suite features a Calacatta gold marble en suite bathroom with radiant heated floors. The Custom designed vanity with Bianco Dolomiti honed marble countertop has two Kohler under-mount sinks and Vola polished chrome faucets with mirrored backlit medicine cabinets set within a brushed nickel frame. A Zuma under-mount bathtub with Vola mixer, spout and hand-shower abuts the large shower stall. A large walk-in closet has been doubled in size and is immaculately outfitted. There are two additional bedroom suites, each with their own en suite bathroom finished with Bleu de Savoie honed marble, and statuary marble counters. A laundry room and intimate powder room housing an Cedar Infra-red sauna complete the picture. Chic contemporary classic molding details are in abundance, framing doors and windows and the transition from walls to ceiling, each custom crafted with tremendous intellect and care. P. E. Guerin hardware features throughout, as well as central air conditioning and heating.
