It must have been a nice change of pace for Stephen Yalof to look for residential properties instead of the retail spaces he scoped out for 12 years as Senior Vice President of Real Estate for the Ralph Lauren Corporation and now as CEO of Premium Outlets. Though for his wife Liora Yalof, a broker with Corcoran, it was likely just another day at work.
The couple paid $5.3 million for their new three-bedroom home at the St. Urban on Central Park West. Apartment 11E is an eclectic mix of historic details and global-inspired décor, perfect for such a well-rounded real estate pair.
285 Central Park West, known as the St. Urban, was built in 1906 and is a designated city landmark, noted for its grand Beaux-Arts façade. The history continues inside; period details are featured throughout the Yalof’s new home, including tall beamed ceilings, bay windows, built-in shelving, an original fireplace, and oak parquet floors.
The warm woods of the modern eat-in kitchen blend perfectly with the rustic color palate of the rest of the apartment. The double-size living room with adjacent dining room is a lovely place to entertain, and the stunning Central Park Views are sure to please guests. It looks like this couple’s real estate chops certainly came in handy during their apartment hunt.
