There’s staging and then there’s staging. This 2,291-square-foot home at Harry Macklowe’s 200 East 59th Street has two bedrooms and two and a half baths. It has been staged with fascinating surrealist pieces to add a touch of glamorous whimsy.
This corner half-floor residence features over 94 linear feet of wraparound terrace with exposures to the North of Central Park, West overlooking the Midtown Skyline and southern views.
The 571 square foot terrace seamlessly connects the great room to an open kitchen outfitted with Italian white glass and aluminum trim cabinetry by Aran Cuchine, book matched honed Calacatta marble slab countertops, a natural white oak island and full-height backsplashes, and integrated Brilliant White glass appliances by Miele including an integrated wine refrigerator.
The expansive western facing master bedroom features three ample closets and a luxurious en-suite master bath clad with Siberian white polished marble walls and honed marble floors with radiant heating.
A floating vanity is crafted from Siberian mink polished marble with fixtures by Watermarks contemporary Loft 24 Collection in a polished chrome finish, and a spa-like floor-to-ceiling glass-enclosed rain shower with thermostatic controls along with a freestanding deep-soaking bathtub.
The home was designed by Cyril Vergniol, the talent behind Paris’ luxe Hotel de Crillion. Cyril envisioned the light-filled Midtown East home to nod to the genius of Salvador Dali and Joan Miro.
This home is listed for $5.4 million with Barbara Russo, Natalie Rakowski, and Tom Postilio of Douglas Elliman for $5.4 million.
