Can a home make you healthier? This apartment in Manhattan recently had a price reduction of 16.2%, making the asking price now $20,950,000.
Jessica and Jason Karp, co-founders of Hu, a Healthy-Lifestyle Snacking Company have a passion for health and wellness that led to the creation of this 4,300-square-foot abode which is centered on health and wellbeing.
To help turn their vision into a reality, the couple looked to Tony Ingrao, a member of Architectural Digest’s elite AD 100, who considered every detail when designing the home. Three apartments were combined to achieve this, with each material used being strictly vetted – sycamore and white oak wood were sourced from specific, safe origins to avoid industrial processing and chemical treatments. Non-VOC paints were used.
The four-bedroom home is entirely hypoallergenic and features a whole-house humidification system. The entire home also includes a Ketra LED lighting system that provides human-centric lighting by producing an infinite spectrum to mimic the color and intensity of sunlight. The formal dining room has walls of windows, allowing for stunning views of the skyline and Central Park.
Close by, the streamlined kitchen has heated leathered-stone floors, limestone countertops, and two Wolf ovens.
Elsewhere, the master suite comes with oversized windows, affording natural light to flow in. The spa-inspired bathroom includes a walk-in steam shower, heated floors, and towel racks. An advanced triple-osmosis water-filtration system allows for pure showers and baths.
With the environment in mind, a Savant Home Automation system controls all rooms and the security, AV systems, and blinds to maximize energy conservation and suitability. No home that prioritizes health would be complete without a gym. The apartment has a gym and yoga room, along with a relaxing sauna to use after a workout where you can enjoy the view of Central Park.
Available at a guide price of $20,950,000 with Sotheby’s International Realty.
