The most beautifully designed home in New Yorkâ€¦ and possibly the world.
This â€œjourney into bespoke craftsmanshipâ€� from master design studio Soren Rose encompasses the entire top floor and rooftop of the 240 Park Avenue South Condominium. A team of master craftsmen, designers and artisans were chosen to design, curate, mill, forge and build this breathtaking home over a six year period. Soren Roses' â€œMagnum Opusâ€� Duplex Penthouse, boasts the most stunning private pool in all of Manhattan, thirty feet long with infinity glass wall and constructed of custom blue Mosaic Bisazza Tile. The panoramic northern view to the Empire State and Chrysler buildings is as spectacular during the day as it is during sunset and all night.
A hallmark of the residence is a signature, twenty four foot tall, forty five panel, book matched wall of Green Verdi Alpi marble hand selected from the same quarry in the Swiss Alps that Mies Van Der Rohe chose his marble for The Barcelona Pavilion This exquisite feature is an architectural element not to be matched anywhere in the world and in perfect harmony with the use of steel, stone, leather, wood and glass in the home, successfully tying together traditional Scandinavian design with industrial and contemporary New York.
