Tiptoe Through the Treetops at 25 Central Park West
The phrase “stunning views of Central Park” could have been first uttered for this elegant and meticulously gut-renovated Century Condominium apartment. From nearly every vantage point you feel like you’re walking on the treetops of New York City’s renowned oasis of green – a view that has been enjoyed by the inhabitants of #14J since the Century opened in 1932 on the former site of the historic Century Theater.
Sharing an Art Deco motif with its sister building The Majestic (on 72nd across from the Dakota), the 32-story Century stands out among its predominantly Beaux-Arts neighbors and became part of the Central Park West historic district in 1985.
Although expansive in its own right, this 2,229-square-foot, 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath prewar apartment feels even more spacious courtesy of its triple exposures and windows that span the length of entire walls. It feels like the park is a bonus room!
And the interior is equally as delicious as the view. A wonderful oversized entry gallery leads to a living/dining room with 34 feet (yes, 34 feet!) on Central Park and a spectacular chef’s kitchen is sure to inspire even the most reluctant of cooks.
When you do finally manage to tear yourself away from the picture perfect vistas, you can retire to the sumptuous private master suite, with oversized walk-in closet and luxurious marble bath. Two additional bedroom suites each have their own new bath.
The only prewar condominium south of 88th street on Central Park West, the Century offers a full-time doorman, concierge and a charming central courtyard, and is ideally located minutes from Lincoln Center, the shops of Time Warner, and an array of terrific restaurants, making this $10.9 million residence simply perfect — inside and out!
