Life at the Pierre, Estate of the Day
Imagine life inside this high floor corner apartment in the tower of the legendary newly restored five star Pierre Hotel. By day, light fills the rooms as you gaze out on city and Central Park views. At night, the city sparkles below. Welcome your guests in to a foyer which leads to a gallery with elegantly sleek lacquer finish walls. The long corner living room offers views over the entire Park in two directions: north all the way up through the Park past the Metropolitan Museum to the George Washington Bridge and west across the Park to the Hudson River, seen through the shimmering Time Warner Towers and also encompassing all of Central Park South and Central Park West. In the living room walls of textured finish with aluminum leaf and patina are anchored with important moldings.
Restrained luxury takes over in the master bedroom which is upholstered in pale silk and has a large dressing closet and a flannel grey and white zebrino marble bath with an oversized glass stall shower. The second bedroom is currently in use as a library and has hidden pocket doors with floor to ceiling custom bookcases on either side, walls of pale cerused oak, a dressing area and a soft brown toned afromosia marble bath ensuite.
The home has a high-tech sound system and lighting which is activated by a one touch control system. Custom designed hardware, beautiful hardwood floors in all rooms and custom shutters which disappear into the window casements in both bedrooms are all part of the charm.
Your apartment also comes with a lifestyle. Apartment owners in the hotel have full access to all hotel services, 24 hour concierge service, twice daily maid service, once monthly heavy cleaning service, valet parking and 24 hour room service. The world famous Le Caprice restaurant from London is located in the hotel and there is also a fitness center and a hair salon. Pets are allowed and corporate ownership permitted. This home is listed at $12.5 million with Martha Kramer of Brown Harris Stevens.
