Duplex Residence 28B at 53 West 53 comprises 2,908 square feet, offering two bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, and north- and east-facing exposures. Gracious proportions and ceilings ranging up to approximately 21 feet set the awe-inspiring stage for world-renowned designer Thierry Despont's masterfully conceived interiors. Bespoke detailing typically reserved for privately commissioned homes abounds, while a rich yet soft palette of museum-quality finishes imbues each space with both modern glamour and timeless elegance.
On the 28th floor, a formal entry foyer gives way to the dramatic, double-height, northeast corner living room lined with two walls of floor-to-ceiling windows. A clever pocket door opens to reveal the adjacent custom kitchen by Thierry Despont for Molteni, where polished statuary marble countertops and a back-lit statuary backsplash complement back-painted glass cabinetry with polished nickel detailing and Dornbracht fixtures. The extensive suite of appliances by Miele and Sub-Zero includes a fully integrated refrigerator and freezer, five-burner cooktop with fully vented hood, integrated dishwasher, wall oven, speed oven, under-counter wine refrigerator, and integrated coffee maker.
A private secondary bedroom features a large walk-in closet and en suite bathroom clad in high-honed Verona limestone with polished nickel Dornbracht fixtures. Completing this level are a beautifully appointed powder room and discreet utility room with washer and vented dryer.
A custom staircase leads to the 29th floor, where the completely private primary suite awaits, offering east-facing views; abundant closets including a walk-in closet; and a spacious, windowed en suite bath with radiant heated floors. Elegantly appointed in polished Noir St. Laurent marble, high-honed Verona limestone, and polished Persian golden travertine with polished nickel Dornbracht fixtures throughout, the primary bathroom features two separate custom carved vanities, a cast iron Lefroy Brooks soaking tub, freestanding shower, and private water closet with commode and bidet.
No detail of this extraordinary residence has been overlooked, from the custom interior lighting design by Thierry Despont in collaboration with Schwinghammer, to the motorized Lutron solar shades throughout with additional blackout shades in each bedroom, to the supply of humidified and filtered fresh air throughout the home.
