The holiday season is fast approaching, which means there are undoubtedly plenty of festivities on your calendar. Well, if you happen to have $60,000 a month in your pocket, perhaps you’ll enjoy this sprawling condo at The Curzon House; it’s warm enough for the winter months and large enough to spread out in when you’ve had enough family time. Internationally renowned architect, Yonkers jail converter, and designer of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Maya Lin spent several years painstakingly renovating this spectacular pad. The end result is a showstopper that has been featured in a number of publications.
It’s easy to get lost in this place, which is designed to afford a great deal of privacy. In fact, the master bedroom is tucked away so perfectly, it’s like a vacation in itself. Enter the east wing to find a split-level staircase that leads to either the main sleeping quarters above or the living space below. While most of the apartment boasts Anigre maple flooring, a standout living room stuns with Gascogne Blue marble tile. Natural light filters into this room through a southern glass ceiling and a fireplace adds warmth both literally and figuratively. On the other side of this wing is a kitchen, outfitted with Lola and Miele, and adjoining dining room.
You’ve probably noticed another set of stairs in the living room. Well, up the second staircase you’ll find a media room with a dry bar and a den that can double as a bedroom. Then, step outside to enjoy a little sun from the planted Corian terrace designed by David Giovannitti.
Now, if you want to get to the master, head down a final set of stairs on the opposite side of the media room. This leads you to a master suite to end all master suites. It’s essentially a separate apartment, with a spacious bedroom lined with closets, access to a beautiful patio, and a separate office with its own en suite bathroom… because who wants to walk a few extra feet to use the master bathroom? That would just be ridiculous.
The Curzon House is an exclusive and intimate condominium created by combining several prominent Beaux Arts mansions. The prestigious building is situated just off Fifth Avenue, on the same block as the late, great Joan Rivers’s estate. Residents enjoy a full and accommodating staff, which includes a 24-hour doorman and a porter. The Lenox Park unit is available with or without the chic furniture by Cappellini, B&B Italia, and more.
