This Parc Vendome apartment at 350 West 57th Street embodied a certain classic New York style long before West Midtown became Billionaires’ Row, when nearby Hell’s Kitchen was still a colorful jumble of old and new. The bright, pristine space rivals any in 21st century Manhattan when it comes taking art collecting and entertaining seriously, with a 27-foot gallery and a solarium as just a sampling of its enviable features, making the 2,600-square-foot unit’s $5.2 million ask seems like a deal.
A 27-foot-long gallery is a grand introduction to the apartment’s pre-war elegance and modern style.
The loft-like living room is framed by beamed ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace and a wall of windows offering views over the city to Hudson Yards and as far downtown as One World Trade Center.
A jewel-like window-fronted “solarium” is the perfect spot for an office or den. An intimate dining room boasts a dry bar and lots of built-in storage. The apartment’s windowed eat-in kitchen is modern, clean and ready for action with a Sub-Zero refrigerator and wine cooler, Miele dishwasher and Ariston washer/dryer combo.
The large master bedroom has two big closets and a dressing room, and an en suite bath. Three additional bedrooms have the same open city views along with high ceilings and privacy.
The Parc Vendome is known for having one of Manhattan’s most celebrated landscaped formal English gardens complete with a fountain and seating.
Built in the 1930s, the building has a collection of amenities at a level not often found in pre-war residences including two roof decks, a music room with a grand piano, a card room, a billiards room, a library and two oversized dining rooms with a professional kitchen available for residents’ entertaining.
