560 West 24th Street, Unit 2, Manhattan, NY 10011
Available September 18th. New high-tech construction in the beloved and timeless Prewar style and scale, with an elegant limestone facade, soaring 11 foot ceilings, dramatic crown moldings, Juliet balconies framed in decorative bronze balustrades and inlaid marble, and solid oak wood floors in a classic Chevron pattern throughout the home.
Upon entering the elegant lobby past the 24-hour doorman, ascend the generous private elevator and be welcomed to one of only 8 residences by your own striking 23-foot long reception hall, with grand proportions and custom lighting design by Cline Bettridge Bernstein for displaying an art collection worthy of its location in the heart of West Chelsea's world-famous art gallery district.
Through a second gallery-like hallway, you will find the extraordinarily proportioned corner great room spanning the width of the building, with flattering light pouring in from seven, 8 foot tall Juliet balcony glass doors, illuminating the walls which were specially laid out for art. Enjoy the outdoors on the planted terrace facing North and West, which can be accessed from either the dining or kitchen area - making it a favorite spot for summer dining and a private respite after a busy day in the city. A spacious den is tucked off the living space as well, perfect for a cozy media room with a beautiful wood-burning marble fireplace.
The unique 4 bedroom layout split into 2 wings lends itself seamlessly to home office needs and utter privacy, with recessed panel doors featuring custom hardware concealed throughout to partition off each separate space. Every bedroom has its own en suite marble bathroom, plus a powder room off the entry hall for guests - as you may imagine the home is fabulous for entertaining. The master bedroom suite has exclusive access to the planted center courtyard, a thoughtfully designed and extremely chic walk-in closet, and a dramatic Calcatta Gold marble spa bathroom with multiple lighting schemes, designer surfaces and hardware, and a Zuma tub.
The kitchen is a chef and entertainer's dream with Custom crafted Jacaranda wood cabinetry so striking that could be framed and put on display at the Gagosian Gallery across the street. The counters and backsplashes are of white Glassos crystallized glass, surrounding a Sub Zero 36" refrigerator, a La Cornue 43" professional range, a Miele Diamond dishwasher, a Sub Zero 27" integrated wine refrigerator, and Range Craft custom stainless steel hood.
Hidden from view are a few high tech must-haves for luxurious modern city life. The home features multi-zone heating and cooling systems with humidity controls and filtered fresh air, electric shades in each room with a convenient control panel, and an inconspicuous laundry room equipped with an extra-large capacity vented turbo wash washer with steam technology. Storage is plentiful within the apartment including a walk-in utility room/pantry closet, supplemented further by a private dedicated storage room on the lobby level of the immaculately maintained boutique building.
560 West 24th is an 8 unit condominium, framed by the renowned Highline Park to the East, Chelsea Waterfront Park and bike path to the West for convenient outdoor activity and incredible sunsets, the "city within a city" of Hudson Yards to the North for dining and shopping, and Meatpacking and West Village directly South. While in proximity to all of these attractions including Avenues School, it is positioned in an extremely peaceful pocket between them all, for a secure and secluded ambiance that has recently become so essential.
