Three years of planning and construction resulted in this irreplaceable property, which enjoys panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline from its perch high above the Upper West Side and steps from Lincoln Center and Central Park. The home has a truly unique aesthetic—the work of Tony Ingrao, a member of Architectural Digest’s elite AD 100. Every detail is completely new and thoughtfully considered, from hand-selected wood—sycamore, white oak, Douglas fir, and caleidolengo—to the cleanest materials and the highest-caliber fixtures and finishes. All paint, finishes, and sealants were strictly vetted. A Ketra lighting system modulates spectrum and brightness according to circadian rhythms; color and scheme can be varied to suit any mood or entertaining theme. The residence is completely hypo-allergenic and features a whole-house humidification system, high-end UV-blocking windows, and an advanced triple-osmosis water-filtration system for perfectly pure showers, baths, and drinking water. The entire home benefits from high-speed Wi-Fi, and every room—including the master bath and shower—has been outfitted with a discreet speaker system. A Savant whole-house-automation system controls heating, air conditioning, music, lighting, and blinds. Three apartments were combined to create the distinctive floor plan, which offers spectacular living spaces and up to four bedrooms. Entertaining is easy in the central living room, which includes a stainless-steel fireplace and a handsome wet bar with cerused Douglas fir cabinetry, a custom sink, and a Sub-Zero wine cooler. The formal dining area features a strikingly artful light fixture and enjoys stunning views of the skyline and Central Park through walls of windows.

Two Wolf ovens, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, a Gaggenau dishwasher and induction cooktop, and a built-in automatic espresso machine are among the top-tier appliances. An inviting casual dining space with built-in seating and whimsical lighting is tucked into a windowed corner of the kitchen, creating a backdrop of enviable Manhattan vistas. In a thoughtful touch that allows for maximum privacy and convenience, two drop-down electronic dividers separate the kitchen from the living area and the den. Spanning more than 2,000 square feet, the master suite is a chic and serene oasis with a subdued natural palette, oversized windows affording glorious natural light and expansive views across Central Park, and a wall designed for art or a wide-screen television. The lavish spa-inspired bath includes a stunning walk-in steam shower and jetted soaking tub clad in striking Mediterranean Blue quartzite, a vanity with oversized mirrors and Fantini fixtures, a private water closet, and heated floors and towel racks. The suite also encompasses an oversized walk-in closet with a built-in safe, a custom home gym and yoga room, and a relaxing personal sauna with its own park view. Peace, privacy, and discretion are easily maintained thanks to the suite’s internal hallway. Each of the home’s additional light-filled bedrooms has a unique character, with ample storage, hidden blinds, blackout shades, and city views. The colorful family living area features a full wall of shelves and custom cabinetry along with space for an 85-inch television. An office with automatic standing desks, a striking powder room, and a handy mudroom complete this comprehensive one-of-a-kind home. The location of the flagship Equinox fitness club in the building is an added amenity. Apartment can be purchased with or without furniture. Property ID: 2V9NZ2
