From the grand vantage point of Columbus Circle, looking out across New York and beyond, this majestic and private residence is a rare blend of serene setting, modern elemental structure, and a location that can only be described as the still point of the turning city.
80 Columbus Circle is one of two residential buildings in the widely acclaimed Time Warner Center which features twenty-four hour doorman and concierge service, Central Park Club membership, valet parking, a garage with 520 spaces, and available hotel services. Built in 2003, the Residences at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel have maintained their status as the premiere white-glove full-service condominium building. With the performing arts of Lincoln Center but a few blocks away and well-reviewed restaurants and shopping directly accessible from within the building, Columbus Circle has proven itself to be New Yorks new epicenter.
Throughout the apartment you will find yourself within open, comfortable spaces. The entryway and foyer are the starting points to reach any part of the apartment. Upon entry you are faced with a Northeastern cityscape view. A marble half-bath is situated off the foyer, just beside the entrance to the kitchen. Featuring Miele and SubZero appliances throughout including twin refrigerators, wine storage beneath the counter, a Miele dishwasher, a microwave tastefully concealed behind a stainless steel door, twin ovens, and a five-burner Miele gas range with hood. Coated in an elegant marble floor the kitchen is large enough for entertaining-level cooking and can easily accommodate a small four-person table.
As the views from the home are so unique, so too are the rooms from which you are presented the broad panoramic New York shots. The living room and dining room are fronted with Northern floor to ceiling windows which bring in tremendous light and breathtaking views of Central Park, Fifth Avenue, and Central Park South.
Through a set of double-doors off the foyer, a corridor leading to the master suite is flanked by incredible closet space, all with custom built-ins, and on the other side, a full marble bath with an oversized stall shower. The master suite carefully divides itself by creating variations of the North and Eastern views. From the wide and open bedroom you will find city and horizon views which compliment the already grand bedroom creating the sense of great space and calm. Inside the dressing room which connects the bedroom to the bathroom, the diamond-shaped layout is ideal for "his and hers" use, complete with thoughtfully designed built-ins. Transition into the master bath where a deep bathtub, encased in marble, points your sightline directly toward the sky for peaceful nighttime views and sun-filled mornings. Opposite the bath is an over-sized stall shower as well as double sinks with a marble countertop.
Across from the master suite sits a private den suitable for either a library or home office as there is a sliding door which closes the room off from the main corridor. With built-in cabinets and light-diffusing blinds this room presents an entirely separate but equally stunning view. Facing both South and West, your eye travels down the western side of Manhattan all the way to the Statue of Liberty.
Returning to the foyer, a separate smaller corridor leads to two additional bedrooms both with full en-suite baths. Ideal for children or live-in, both bedrooms are positioned at a private distance from the master suite while retaining all of the comforts and functionality needed by featuring equally breathtaking Western and South Views, walk-in closets and a common storage closet off the corridor which leads to the bedrooms.
Design, service, functionality, elegance; every need is met to the fullest within this residence and by way of the building which is among the select few to offer full white-glove service partnered with available hotel services.
