Even with a dizzying ask of $12.8 million, you know you’re headed for off-the-charts territory when a 4,200-square-foot, three+ bedroom apartment starts with a sunken foyer that opens into an 800-square-foot sunken living room. And if you’re thinking that’s bigger than lots of people’s entire apartment, consider the fact that there are many rooms like it in this full-floor home in the Photo Arts Building at 5 East 16th Street. And you haven’t even seen the atrium wall yet.

The listing takes note of the apartment’s “enthusiastically modern design scheme,” and it’s hard not to join in the excitement. Within the aforementioned sunken living room you’ll find Stone Italiana floors, made toasty by a recycled aluminum and stone slab eight-foot-long ethanol fireplace. The atrium wall, filled with what we’ll assume is skylit living greenery, forms an impressive backdrop, though you hardly need one.

The kitchen is “a marvel of both form and function” with a sampling from just about every high-end appliance, fixture and finish maker in Europe represented in its sleek cooktop, two refrigerators and freezer, double wall ovens with warming drawers, integrated espresso/coffee machine, custom Italian cabinets with LED lighting, and more. The dining room seats at least 10, while high-gloss built-ins mean they never have to see a thing out of place.

Heading into one of the home’s many private chambers, Spanish leather tile begins the master suite on the other side of the 16-and-a-half-foot wide atrium wall, a calming organic detail in all this glossy modernity.

Two massive (almost an understatement) walk-in closets and two smaller closets provide even more room for rotating art exhibitions. The master bath gets an electric fireplace, plus everything else ever created for a luxurious master bath.

Two additional well-appointed bedrooms and baths stand ready, but there looks to be enough space for at least a few more. A laundry room with an Asko washer-dryer is just the beginning of the home’s convenience arsenal. A Nest system controls the four-zone central air conditioning and a Crestron system looks out for the TV, lighting and sound.

Memorable and unique designer details are everywhere, from light fixtures by Terzani, Fredrick Raymond and Baccarat to nine-foot tall Lualdi Porte doors. In case you’re still craving excitement, glass railings and partitions allow light to “roam unencumbered” through the home’s 4,200 square feet, which sounds like a pretty wild sunshine safari.
