15 Central Park West Unit: 5A, New York City, NY 10023
Coveted A-line Residence at 15 Central Park West with 50 Feet of Central Park Frontage
This 4,577-square-foot residence at 15 Central Park West is not just a home, but a statement of luxury and sophisticated design, crafted by the renowned British interior designer Kelly Hoppen. This 4-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom property stands as a testament to elegance and style in one of New York's most prestigious buildings.
Upon entering, the grand foyer leads to a central gallery, capturing the essence of Hoppen's design philosophy, as showcased in her book "Ideas: Creating a Home for the Way You Live." The space is adorned with a striking Lustre Ovale bronze chandelier and a circular table by Robert Kuo, complemented by a dark stained oak mirror against a silver-leaf wall.
The corner living room, with its Juliet balcony, presents captivating views of Central Park and Columbus Circle to the East and South. It features an impressive wall of ebonized shelving with an electronic sliding screen that provides the option of concealing the television. As Kelly aptly notes, "The two zones in this living-dining space are linked by color, tone, texture, and the dark oak parquet flooring. The folding screen-like doors can be used to segregate the two spaces, and these tie in with the shelving."
The primary suite, overlooking Central Park, combines luxury with functionality. It includes a decorative fireplace, spacious walk-in closets, and two en-suite bathrooms, one of which is a serene sanctuary designed by Hoppen, featuring a deep soaking tub and a heated toilet/bidet.
The chef's kitchen, equipped with high-end appliances, opens to a comfortable media room. The west side of the home comprises three well-proportioned bedrooms, each with custom built-ins, en-suite bathrooms, and ample closet space. An oversized hall closet and a laundry room complete this wing. Noteworthy features include 9'10" ceilings, custom joinery framing each doorway, a bespoke powder room adorned with plasterwork on the walls and ceiling, and a Savant Home Automation system for temperature, audio, lighting, and window shades control. A wine cellar and a storage unit are also available for purchase.
The building, designed by Robert A.M. Stern, offers amenities like a 24-hour doorman, concierge, a comprehensive fitness center, an indoor pool, steam and sauna facilities, a library, conference room, theater, billiards room, children's playroom, and a private restaurant.
Located conveniently across from Central Park, this residence is moments away from Lincoln Center and the Shops at Columbus Circle, including Whole Foods. The area is a culinary delight, home to some of the world's finest dining options like Marea, Jean-Georges, Bar Masa, Per Se, and Porter House Bar & Grill, making it an ideal location for those who appreciate the finer things in life.
