The definition of a dream home is definitely different for different folks. Some might just prefer the solitude of a mountain retreat overlooking a lush green canopy and the gentle stream. Others may opt for a stunning hub draped in contemporary goodness. But an awesome penthouse sitting on the 90th floor of a Manhattan skyscraper and offering 360° views of the city and its iconic skyline is a proposition few among us would ever refuse! Barring a chance of falling asleep on the couch staring at the dazzling lights of the Eiffel Tower, Private Residence I could very well be the dream apartment for those who adore urban brilliance.
One of the largest private apartments in all of New York City and arguably the best in terms of the views that it offers, this penthouse was crafted with immaculate style by ODA Architecture. Spread across 18,000 square feet, the multi-level apartment contains a private elevator, a sculpture garden, home theater, music room, private spa, gym, teahouse and a 2000-bottle wine cellar as well! Of course, all this is in addition to a mesmerizing living room with 16′ foot floor- to-ceiling windows, a world-class kitchen (which might be a touch too red for our liking), an amazing dining space, 6 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. Being among the best in New York City, one would expect nothing less!
Another splendid feature of the apartment is its expansive art collection that adds class, color and tasteful panache to each and every room. A wide range of textures and finishes ensures that every room inside the penthouse has a personality and aura of its own. And to top it all off, you have the 30′ water wall and reflecting pool at the entrance that offers a bird’s-eye view of the UN headquarters. When it comes to sheer grandeur and opulence, it would be hard to find another NYC apartment that comes close!
