Occupying over 3,500 square feet on the 6th floor of the Beaux Arts building at 285 Central Park West known as The St. Urban, this rare corner unit has (at least) four bedrooms and space to spare. Designed with a fabulous eye for style and color, this Upper West Side home has retained all of its pre-war charms, but it’s anything but stuffy. Impressive Central Park vistas and open exposures add up to a $9,900,000 HQ for a big, busy family, grand-scale entertaining–or both.
Enter the foyer, with on-trend terrazzo flooring below 10-foot-high ceilings. Next, a gracious gallery offers park views. Throughout the single-floor mansion are oversized new windows, dark-honey-toned solid oak herringbone floors, central air conditioning with four zones, and Sonos sound. A convenient laundry room holds a vented washer/dryer.
The main living space spans over 44 feet in length and consists of the living, dining, and library areas, making for an easy transition between entertaining space and private retreat. A picture-perfect eat-in kitchen has worktops of crisp honed marble. Top-of-the-line appliances include Sub-Zero, Viking, and Miele.
The primary suite doesn’t skimp on the views–or on closet space, with a dressing area, two walk-ins, and two more. The ensuite marble-clad bath has the noteworthy perk of Central Park vistas from the tub.
In the opposite bedroom wing are three more full-sized chambers and two bathrooms.
A flex room is currently being used as a cozy den with a drop-down movie screen; this space could easily be a guest room or another bedroom. There is also a dazzling marble-wrapped powder room.
Designed by Robert T. Lyons and dating from 1906, the pet-friendly St. Urban offers a resident manager, 24-hour door attendants, and porters. Amenities include a porte-cochere, a state-of-the-art exercise room, an indoor basketball court/play area, and a bike room.
