This exceptional Walker Tower three-bedroom + two home office duplex has been completely transformed to achieve an unprecedented level of quality and refinement. At over 4,144 SF, the combination of two units has resulted in a one-of-a-kind floor plan offering two private terraces and sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline. The home is resplendent with bespoke details lending both a unique style and luxurious design.
On the main level, the Great Room is flooded with natural light from oversized windows facing north and east, revealing breathtaking views of the Empire State Building. Ceiling heights reach 12 feet. A built-in entertainment system features custom millwork and a ventless fireplace.
Facing the living area is an artisan kitchen custom designed by Smallbone. Beneath a custom plaster deco ceiling, the large marble island sets the tone for gracious entertaining or casual dining. Premium appliances include a Viking induction cooktop and oven with pot filler, vented hood, Gaggenau steam oven, microwave, and built-in espresso machine, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, fireclay apron sink with Insinkerator garbage disposal and ionizer water filtration system, marble slab backsplash, and polished nickel and walnut detailing. A large walnut butler's pantry is adjacent to the kitchen for additional storage.
Three of the four spacious bedrooms are located on this floor, as well as two full bathrooms. Two large bedrooms face north with mesmerizing views, one of which is currently configured as a meditation room, featuring a Zen holistic design scheme and LED backlit display walls. The third expansive bedroom benefits from corner exposures to the north and east and has access to the private terrace.
Ascend the solid oak stairway where the second level awaits with an exquisite Smallbone designed custom wine room bar, decorated with polished stone countertops, crystal display cases, a marble infinity bar, two full-sized wine refrigerators, ice-maker, coffee-marker, microwave, and custom built-in upholstered banquette seating. A second entertainment lounge can double as a private screening room, and provides access to the second private terrace with sweeping views to the north, east, and west. The adjacent home office features custom millwork and access to the terrace.
The sumptuous master suite offers corner exposures north and east through bay windows with built-in seating and a ventless fireplace. The five-piece ensuite master bathroom is outfitted with floor-to-ceiling marble slabs, a double sink vanity, standalone deep soaking tub, separate steam shower with floating marble bench, enclosed WC, and heated towel rack. The master suite also includes twin walk-in closets, both custom milled by Smallbone.
Additional details of the home include French herringbone solid oak floors, custom programmable lighting, central air conditioning, two appropriately scaled laundry rooms with full-sized washer/dryers, a Crestron home automation system, and the ability to convert the upstairs wine bar into a full second kitchen. A state of the art and fully customizable LED Circadian Lighting Systems has been installed throughout the home.
Walker Tower was designed in 1929 by famed architect Ralph Thomas Walker. In 2012, the extraordinary Art Deco building was transformed into a luxury condominium, the most prized Downtown building. Residents enjoy a full-time doorman, concierge service, library lounge, fitness center with yoga room, sauna, children's playroom, and a landscaped common roof deck with a dining area, sun lawn, and covered cabana room.
