211 Central Park West, PH22D
Offered for sale for the first time in 40 years, this iconic penthouse apartment occupies the South/East tower of the Beresford, one of the most recognizable and sought-after buildings on Central Park West. It offers dramatic 360-degree views of Central Park, the southern skyline, and the Hudson River, and one of the largest terraces on Central Park West.
A private windowed Elevator Foyer on the main floor of the apartment opens to a gallery with a curved staircase connecting the upper three floors of the quadraplex. There is a large, well-proportioned living room with 10.5’ ceilings, a fireplace, and wide sliding glass doors opening to a wraparound balcony overlooking the American Museum of Natural History and the park. The adjoining library has an en-suite bath, and could be used as a second bedroom.
An elegant, over-sized formal dining room affords beautiful south views, and connects to a spacious kitchen. A back stair leads to two staff rooms with a full bath on the lower level. The 3rd floor of the penthouse accommodates a large master bedroom suite with a separate dressing room and bath, and an expansive 52 ft. x 44 ft. terrace overlooking Central Park.
The top floor of the apartment is occupied by a spectacular great room with 17’ high ceilings, a fireplace, and breathtaking views from double height windows to the east, north and west. The Penthouse has been called a “crown jewel of the Manhattan real estate market”, and the architectural critic Paul Goldberger described the apartment as “extraordinary; it is the apex, the architectural climax of the building”.
