Spectacular, rare high floor corner apartment in the tower with dazzling direct Central Park views from all rooms in the legendary former home of Yves St. Laurent and Pierre Berge, later owned by Valentino co-founder Giancarlo Giammetti, and most recently by designer Tomas Maier. With soaring 11' ceilings and grand scale rooms floating above the city and Central Park, this is surely the most special two-bedroom residence in Manhattan. Extraordinary light fills this apartment at all hours of the day; at night there are the city lights twinkling all around. Originally created by three of the world's most well-known interior designers, working together in a most unusual situation, Jacques Grange, Jed Johnson and Peter Marino produced a masterpiece. Recently, Peter Marino renovated the home to the most exacting specifications, blending the original details with today's lifestyle expectations. It is the ultimate in luxury, quality and style.
Enter the apartment through an elegant wood paneled and mirrored foyer which leads into the gracious gallery, a room in itself, setting the stage for the breathtaking 32 foot living room and its views. The views extend both west over the Park to the Hudson River and north over the Park to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and onwards to the George Washington Bridge over 8 miles away. At night one can see the planes taking off and landing at LaGuardia Airport in the distance to the east.
The two generously sized bedrooms have built in black out shutters, en suite marble baths and dressing rooms with hand tooled leather detailing. One of the bedrooms has hidden pocket doors which can be opened up to the living room and can also function as a library or home office. There are floor to ceiling lighted double bookcases facing both the living room and this bedroom.
Additional features include:
custom designed lighting for art in every room
custom designed hardware and hinges throughout
top of the line finishes and details throughout
