After nearly six months on the market, Jon Stryker’s luxurious Central Park West penthouse has finally found its buyer. The penthouse changed hands this week for $42 million, falling $6 million short of the ask.
Stryker originally purchased the historic Prasada triplex for $12.8 million in 2002, and he took to renovating the 5,600-square-foot space shortly after with the help of Shelton, Mindel & Associates (Stryker is a trained architect himself). Over the years, the updated design has garnered plenty of accolades, including a spread in Architectural Digest, and in 2010, it nabbed the coveted AIA award for ‘Interior Architecture’.
Originally, the penthouse consisted of two disparate spaces. Given the location within one of Manhattan’s most noted landmark buildings, the designers worked hard to create one modern, cohesive, seamless residence that would also reference the beaux-arts revivalist-style of the historic structure. It was also important that the space take full advantage of the four exposures of light, mezzanine, conservatory, rooftop access, and views of Manhattan’s Central Park.
Today, the CPW beauty hosts five-bedrooms, six-bathrooms, 45 windows, and an expansive 2,500 square feet of outdoor space spread across two levels. Classic touches, like detailed millwork and coffered ceilings remain, but the overall aesthetic and ambiance is decidedly modern.
