It’s been a while since the last “Unattainable Apartment” listing, but today’s is a doozy that makes up for lost time…
The penthouse at 535 West End Avenue (corner of 86th) has been featured on Curbed several times in the past year and was recently the focus of an article in the Wall Street Journal. Originally thought to be reserved for the building’s developer, president of Extell Development Gary Barnett, the apartment recently hit the open market when Barnett decided to not to move in.
With stunning panoramic Hudson River Views beginning on the 20th floor, the apartment is “a mansion in the sky.” The sun-flooded triplex is comprised of nine bedrooms, two staff rooms, eleven full, and two half baths, amidst 13,779 interior and 2,000+ exterior square feet.
The pre-war architectural details include solid rosewood herringbone floors, traditional moldings, three wood burning/gas fireplaces, generously proportioned rooms and separate staff quarters. Modern finishes include oversized windows, luxurious natural stone bathrooms, 16 zone central heating and cooling system, an integrated audio system and top of the line appliances and fixtures throughout.
An interior elevator leads to the spacious, landscaped roof terrace, outfitted with a gas grill, wet bar and featuring an inviting outdoor fireplace.
535 West End is a full-service, white glove building offers countless amenities, including a garage, state of the art fitness center, heated indoor swimming pool and steam rooms, recreation room, courtyard and entertainment space/children’s area with catering kitchen and more.
The apartment is offered through Prudential Douglas Elliman for $37,500,000. Monthly maintenance/CC comes to $14,482. Real estate tax is an additional $2,013/month.
As the WSJ piece points out, the price for two-full floors works out to just over $2,721 per square foot, not counting the large terrace. That’s under half the average asking price for condos at 15 Central Park West on a price-per-square-foot basis, making this penthouse a relative bargain.
