Sitting on the 48th floor with stunning views of New York City is this duplex penthouse at the Baccarat Hotel & Residences. It is the first resale of this unit.
The five-bedroom estate in the sky has a chic glass and marble floating staircase. With almost 7,400 square feet of interior space and soaring 14-foot ceilings, walls of glass beckon you forward to admire 360-degree, panoramic views – north over Central Park to the George Washington Bridge and beyond, and south past the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings to the World Trade Center.
A 550 square-foot loggia offers the ideal space to design alfresco or just take in the view.
Designed by internationally acclaimed architect Tony Ingrao, the interior has solid six-inch wide ebony stained white oak floors and contemporary detail throughout. A corner living room, formal dining room and eat-in kitchen provide for effortless entertaining on a grand scale. The Siematic kitchen has a built-in Miele and Sub-Zero appliances, and wine cooler.
The master bedroom space offers 1,150 square feet, highlighted by a separate seating area, double dressing rooms and a spa-like white-honed marble bathroom of almost 400 square feet, which includes two separate stall showers, as well as a double vanity. The bathrooms are fully clad in Siberian polished marble and the powder room includes frosted, mirrored glass panel walls, Lido white honed marble floors, and custom vanity with Lucite base and hammered nickel sink. The apartment is pre-wired for high tech integrated circuit technology and Baccarat hotel amenities can be accessed from a touch screen tablet.
Residents have complete access to the amenities of the flagship Baccarat Hotel, including the private Petite Salon lounge, Spa de la Mer, Baccarat Bar, full fitness center and marble-clad pool with private cabanas. Also on hand are 24-hour multilingual concierge services, valet and doormen.
This residence is listed for $39.95 million with Halstead Properties and is showcased by Luxury Portfolio.
