Located in the epicenter of the West Chelsea Arts District across from Gagosian Gallery, nestled between the Hudson River Park’s Chelsea Cove and the Highline Park, this exceptional $20M penthouse in what is considered by many to be Downtown’s most prestigious address, with its dimensional facade and industrial styled windows designed by Selldorf Architects, is distinctively clad in gunmetal colored Teraccota and brushed stainless steel.
An 18-month renovation by Netherlands-based MVRDV Architects guided by Young Woo and Associates has fine-tuned this home to perfection: The elevator opens directly into the upper level revealing breathtaking light and exposures towards the West and North that engulf the apartment all day. Mesmerizing views from 80 feet of direct, protected frontage of the Hudson River and the skyline beyond set the tone for this significant residence.
The gracious entertaining space featuring floor to ceiling windows with double doors that open with a glass balustrade to let the outside in, leads onto a covered loggia lounge terrace with panoramic views towards the Empire State Building. Brazilian Teak flooring features throughout. While the apartment features masses of windows, it boasts equally impressive art walls.
A large, eat-in kitchen resplendently equipped with Miele, Liebherr and Sub Zero appliances and teak and stainless cabinetry features floor-to- ceiling teak doors to close off the kitchen when not in use. The adjoining third bedroom suite or a grand study leads to a second loggia terrace, perfect for al fresco dining.
A service hall connects the garage to the apartment as well as allowing access to a powder room and the loggia terrace. 200 Eleventh Avenue is equally renowned for its En Suite Sky Garage, a garage that sits alongside the penthouse accessed via a drive-in elevator: the 60-second ride from the lobby to your garage provides unparalleled convenience and privacy.
If you’re not taking the car elevator to your penthouse, the passenger elevator opens into the home, revealing a glass floor above a room at the core of the property perfect for displaying a treasured collection. With the touch of a button, the upper glass floor opens to reveal a stairway that leads downstairs to the grandly scaled bedroom wing. The large Master suite with two walk-in closets and an adjoining study/lounge area with 20 foot ceilings, features a brand new all-white en suite bathroom with glowing back- lit LED tiles that gently highlight the gorgeous Dornbracht and Duravit fixtures. To top it off, a custom white soaking tub open to the bedroom is nestled under the stairway: There is not a more sensuous bathing experience anywhere in Manhattan.
On this floor is an additional bedroom suite with awe- inspiring views towards the North East and Midtown Manhattan. 200 Eleventh Avenue offers a 24 hour attended lobby and a superbly equipped gym with a spinning room, natural daylight and two terraces. With two enclosed drop-off areas, no other building offers this level of privacy and discretion, something the New York Times simply termed “Paparrazi-proof”.
