The historic 37-story Hampshire House, completed in 1938 by Caughey & Evans stands out confidently among the skyline overlooking Central Park South. An architectural icon of the post-Depression era is recognizable for its steep copper roof, twin chimneys, and glistening white brick. The building draws on Spanish Baroque, Modern Classicism, Regency and Art Deco styles.
A jewel in the crown of highly coveted Central Park South, the Hampshire House harkens back to a bygone era. While maintaining many of the original details, the building also offers every modern amenity such as a full-time doorman, concierge, fitness center, spa and valet service. In addition, this world-renowned residence boasts incomparable views of Central Park.
To add grandeur to greatness, international luxury developer Arnon Katz will be developing the three-story Hampshire House penthouse into one of the world’s most coveted residences at 150 Central Park South.
“It is an honor to present this world premiere penthouse to the market,” said Arnon Katz. “When we discovered approximately 9,800 square feet which includes 1,200 square feet of breathtaking private terraces atop one of Manhattan’s most prized white-glove buildings, we knew we had the chance to create something truly magnificent. From soaring ceilings to expansive terraces and uninterrupted views of Central Park and beyond, this is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
The stunning design for the home is conceived by SPAN Architecture. Unparalleled features include 3 full floors, 10- to 14-foot ceilings, 5 private terraces with panoramic views of the New York City skyline, Hudson and East Rivers, and Central Park.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the opportunity to offer such an iconic, distinctive and architecturally significant residence. It is truly a one-of-a-kind penthouse overlooking the Park and city skyline with magnificent outdoor space. It really doesn’t get any better,” said Roger Erickson.
Added Noble Black, “This is one of Manhattan’s best kept secrets and an unprecedented opportunity for a highly discerning buyer to live in a location with truly incredible Central Park views.”
The home features 5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, dramatic living and dining rooms, and family room. The expansive 415-square-foot, north-facing private terrace directly overlooking Central Park is ideal for entertaining. The 1,000-square-foot master suite occupies one full floor and includes an expansive, five-fixture master bathroom. In addition, there’s a private sitting room, oversized dressing room, and secondary bathroom.
“We are pleased to bring this exciting new penthouse opportunity to market and look forward to its successful sale,” said Howard M. Lorber, chairman of Douglas Elliman Realty, LLC.
