Just weeks after Tommy Hilfiger put his Plaza Hotel estate up for sale, another one is following suit, asking an astronomical $49.5 million, nearly triple the amount it was purchased for back in 2008. However, as ambitious as the price may be, this three-bedroom condo is pretty spectacular. The 3,413-square-foot Art Deco residence has exquisite details, 13-foot ceilings, and stellar views of Central Park—including those of the pond and Gapstow Bridge—from every major room.
An elegant foyer with black granite floors and stainless steel accents greets you upon entrance, providing a taste of what’s to come in the rest of the dwelling. The clear focal point of the residence is the grand living room with two giant windows looking out over the park, and an eye-catching tray ceiling lined with black molding. Off the living room is a distinctive dining room with Chinese Red French paneling and mercury glass. The neighboring top-of-the-line kitchen is accessible through either the dining room or the opposite hallway.
On one side of the unit are two generous bedrooms, each with park views and en suite bathrooms. The private master suite sits on the opposite side of the apartment, showing up the other bedrooms with two en suites. Well, they say too much of a good thing is… even better. Residents of this home will have a choice between the gregarious white onyx bathroom garnished with black lacquer and mirrors and boasting park views; or its more demure companion with gray and black accents and a steam shower. The home’s additional features include Venetian plaster walls, Lutron lighting, and electronic shades for privacy.
Residents of the Plaza Hotel receive access to the hotel’s maid service, concierge, food court, spa and gym, and the newly designed Palm Court, at reduced rates. For $50 million we would prefer free access, but when you’re shelling out that kind of money, what’s another check?
