Central Park West, Estate of the Day
Today's home on New York's Central Park West combines a classic exterior built in 1887 by William Noble and architect Edward J. Angell with a blindingly modern interior. The mansion is one of the few remaining single residences on Central Park. Once you get inside the door the space has been completely redone, mostly in the service of art. The opened up light and bright parlor floor and living area have double-height ceilings and gallery-size walls for big pieces. The great room has a dome-shaped skylight that pours light down on a floating staircase. The basement area features a freshwater lap pool and a fitness area. The current owners have a collection of small figures installed behind glass cases in a tranquil white sitting room with park views. The home also has a sedate gray media room, five large bedrooms, a professional kitchen and a zen garden with outdoor dining. The master suite has a bow-front window seat, dressing area, spa bath and terrace. The roof terrace has sweeping park views and an elevator links the floors. This home is listed at $32.5 million with Sotheby's Homes.
