Located in the massive four-building Parc Vendome condominium complex that spans nearly a full city block in Midtown West, this designer-renovated home at 340 West 57th Street is worthy of any hyperbole bestowed upon it. On the 14th floor, with the pre-war building’s highest ceilings (according to the listing) that reach 16 feet, this 1,165-square-foot, one-bedroom home is dressed to impress and asking $2,395,000.

Blessed with 1929-vintage grand scale and a recent top-to-bottom design overhaul by Phillip J. Consalvo, the apartment is anchored by a suitably dramatic living room with cathedral ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace. Throughout are new systems, designer art lighting, solid oak floors, and top-shelf finishes.

Designed for entertaining–while certainly capable of intimacy–an attractive gallery hall leads to the aforementioned lofty salon framed by a wall of casement windows and its signature beamed ceilings. A custom stairway leads to the mezzanine library/gallery that overlooks the living room.

A jewel-box dining room, lined with built-in vitrines, gets triple-access from the foyer, living room and kitchen. A stunning windowed kitchen is understated and chef-ready with limestone counters, bespoke cabinetry, dual wall ovens and a gas cooktop by BlueStar, and additional appliances by SubZero, Bosch, and Miele.

The king-sized bedroom, framed by high, beamed ceilings, has city quiet windows adding to its tranquility factor. There are lots of designer closets and built-in cabinetry here as well, of course. The master bath is truly a standout, both colorful and luxurious with stone floors, marble surrounds, a two-person soaking tub, a separate two-person shower with four showerheads, dual sinks, and a hand-cut Mosaic House tile feature wall.

The classic Manhattan residence comes through with an impressive roster of amenities: A private, formal garden is anchored by a fountain, and there are two roof decks, full-time doormen, a billiards room, a music room, a library, a private dining room, a banquet room, a gaming room, and a resident manager. Common charges include electric, gas, water, and heat, and short-term leases are permitted.
