212 West 18th Street, Apt 17BC
Residence 17BC at Walker Tower is an exquisite example of the marriage of inspired contemporary design with the bold Art Deco proportions of esteemed architect Ralph Walker. Hailed by the New York Times as "architect of the Century", Walker viewed the building as one of his masterpieces, soaring above Chelsea and all of downtown Manhattan with views of the Hudson River, Freedom Tower, Statue of Liberty and beyond.
This generously proportioned, nearly 4,000 square foot apartment is entered via a formal gallery, setting an elegant tone for the rest of the 5 bedroom, 5 1/2 bath home. This leads to an expansive living room featuring Southern and Western exposures and floor-to-ceiling casement windows which literally flood the apartment with sunlight. The adjoining Smallbone kitchen includes marble and limestone countertops, Dornbracht fixtures and full refrigerator, wine cooler and under-counter refrigerator/freezer drawers by Sub-Zero, an induction cooktop, wall oven and warming drawer by Viking, speed oven and built-in coffee maker by Miele and a Franke water filtration system.
The apartment features two primary bedroom suites, each with a bespoke marble clad bathroom and walk-in closet. The three secondary bedrooms each include a bathroom en-suite. The residence also boasts an office with built-in desk and custom bookshelves. Additional details include radiant floor heating throughout, French herringbone oak flooring, a Crestron Home Automation System, Nanz hardware and custom-designed tilt and turn windows, millwork and lighting. Additionally, this residence includes a built-in humidification system, an ultra-quiet central air conditioning system and a dedicated ventilation system.
