A coveted gem within 53 West 53, Residence 16E comprises 1,241 square feet, offering one bedroom, one-and-a-half bathrooms, and south-facing exposures. Gracious proportions and ceilings ranging up to approximately 10'3" 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.
The proper entry gallery leads to a generous great room, lined with floor-to-ceiling windows that artfully frame south-facing views. An adjacent pair of dramatic pocket doors opens to reveal the 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, four-burner cooktop with fully vented hood, integrated dishwasher, wall oven, speed oven, and under-counter wine refrigerator.
The airy bedroom offers south-facing views; a large walk-in closet; and spacious en suite primary bathroom 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 a custom carved double vanity, cast iron Lefroy Brooks soaking tub, and freestanding shower. A beautifully appointed powder room and discreet utility closet with washer and vented dryer complete the residence. No detail has been overlooked, from the custom interior lighting design by Thierry Despont in collaboration with Bill Schwinghammer, to the motorized Lutron solar shades throughout with additional blackout shades in the bedroom, to the supply of humidified and filtered fresh air throughout the home.
With architecture by Pritzker Prize-winner Jean Nouvel and interiors by the legendary Thierry Despont, 53 West 53 is a true icon, rising 1,050 feet in the heart of Manhattan against the cinematic backdrop of Central Park and the surrounding cityscape.
