Custom-designed, full-floor home with sweeping N-S-E-W views in the eight-residence West Tower of 505 West 19th Street, located perfectly at the High Line of West Chelsea.
This 3-bedroom/3.5-bathroom home of nearly 3,000 square feet has beautifully integrated the celebrated architecture of Thomas Juul-Hansen with upgrades throughout designed by Workshop/APD. A private storage room is included.
With ceiling heights over 10'2" and nearly floor-to-ceiling windows, the home is flooded with light all day and enjoys iconic views of the High Line, Empire State Building, Hudson Yards, One World Trade, and Hudson River. Wide-plank white oak floors add to the home's warmth.
Two key-locked semi-private elevators open directly into an elegant foyer with walls for art, powder room, coat closet built with solid walnut, and oversized A/V closet. The ~37'x19' corner great room includes a dining area with custom walnut-and-steel banquette and space for two separate sitting areas. The great room has views up and down the High Line and of the Empire State Building and Midtown skyline. Walls have been reinforced for heavy pieces of art. During the day the room is full of light, and at night the city sparkles out your window.
The chef's eat-in kitchen features brushed Absolute Black Granite countertops and grey-stained, quarter-sawn white oak cabinetry with leather-wrapped brass handles and brass trim. A large cooking island and banquette complete the kitchen, along with Miele and Sub-Zero appliances: true-vented range cooktop with pull-out hood, convection oven, steam oven, warming drawer, large paneled refrigerator, wine fridge, dishwasher, and lots of pantry storage. Enjoy a glass of wine on the banquette while looking out over the High Line and Empire State Building.
The bedrooms are separate from the entertaining side of the home. All have en-suite bathrooms and large custom closets.
The corner master bedroom suite has its own study with a custom solid walnut nook desk and shelves, two walk-in closets, and a linen closet, all designed in solid walnut with drawers, shelves, shoe racks, and plenty of hanging space. The windowed master bathroom features Stormy Grey travertine walls, heated Bianco Dolomiti floors, double vanities with separate sinks and custom steel drawers, free-standing soaking tub, walk-in shower, water closet with Neorest toilet, and Waterworks fixtures. Views look over the High Line and downtown to One World Trade.
The second bedroom is large with a custom walnut closet and bathroom with shower. Down a windowed hallway is the third corner bedroom, currently designed as an office, with custom floating steel shelves, large closet, and Hudson River views. Off the hallway is the laundry/mud room, with full-size washer and vented dryer, plus custom corian cabinets and sink. The mudroom allows rear access to one of the elevators, perfect for dogs, deliveries, and muddy boots.
The home has multi-zone AC/heating with wireless control. Additional improvements include Lutron shades and lighting controlled by app or keypad, built-in speakers, and custom corian window sills for easy maintenance.
