Peerless West Side Penthouse
High atop the Mandarin Oriental, this magnificent penthouse is the result of a spectacular renovation by acclaimed designer Juan Montoya. Two residences were meticulously combined, creating a rare single-level home of 5,300+ square feet, every space replete with artful details and museum-quality finishes. Without peer in Manhattan, the home boasts soaring ceilings; custom lighting; artisan millwork; such superior materials as marble and onyx from Pietrasanta, Italy; and views of Central Park, the rivers, and the skyline. The opulence begins in the foyer, with its marble onyx, lapis lazuli, Afrormosia wood, and Austrian bronze. The gallery offers built-in art display spaces, discreet cabinetry, and intricately detailed plaster ceilings. Steps away is an onyx and tiger's eye powder room with a rock crystal sink and a vaulted ceiling. The great roomâ€”which encompasses living and dining spaces and a media roomâ€”features floor-to-ceiling windows, marble floors, stately columns, Afrormosia panels with bronze inlay, and a hidden television. Shagreen and Afrormosia paneling contribute to a refined ambience in the library. Striking rosewood cabinetry, onyx slab counters, and marble floors distinguish the kitchen, which offers pairs of dishwashers, Miele ovens, and Sub-Zero refrigerator-freezers; a microwave; and a Thermador cooktop. Lavish in style and size, the master suite has Macassar ebony doors, marble floors, and parchment wall panels; it includes a sitting area, multiple closets, attic space, an office, and a bath with a soaking tub, a shower, and Lalique fixtures. Three bedroom suites and abundant closets are located in the western wing, which has a private entrance. Shades, drapes, lighting, air conditioning, heating, humidification, music, and security are automated. A spa; a state-of-the-art fitness center; an indoor pool; a business center; conference rooms; and housekeeping, valet, and concierge services are among the Mandarin Oriental's five-star amenities.
