Upper West Side Residence
Ebony stained herringbone rift white oak floors greet you as you enter this exceptional transitional apartment on the Upper West Side. What was at one time three separate apartment units, have now been combined, dismantled, re-designed and completely rebuilt to the highest level of detail. High gloss lacquer foyer walls with a gold leaf wallpapered ceiling appear as you enter into the main hallway of the residence lined with custom-built eight foot tall three panel doors, cased modeling’s and wall paneling. Oversized floor to ceiling windows in the dining area overlook Theodore Roosevelt Park, which occupies the backside of the Museum of Natural History. The once enclosed living room was exposed to create one open entertaining space for a more modern style of living. Custom designed crown and wall moldings wrap the perimeter walls with floating coffered ceilings above. These ceilings help delineate the function of space beneath them, marking their boundaries without the use of any physical barriers. A custom wall unit that surrounds the television encompasses a hidden Onyx bar that is fully backlit with integrated LED panels. Bespoke kitchen cabinetry surrounds a large floating kitchen island with book-matched Calacatta marble countertops. The study with a walnut desk is easily converted into an extra guest room when a custom Murphy bed pulls down out of the millwork wall unit. A custom built upholstered headboard and bed frame were built into the wall unit of the master bedroom. In the master bathroom, a walnut vanity is surrounded by custom mosaic floors, sugar white marble walls and book-matched Calacatta marble slabs in the shower.
