This New Duplex Apartment has Central Park on its Doorstep
With Central Park in touching distance to the front of the apartment and its own private garden to the rear, this property will appeal to a buyer who wants all the buzz of a central New York location with the extraordinarily rare bonus of outdoor space.
Located in Upper Manhattan in historic Harlem right at the northern edge of the park, this four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom ‘townhouse’ apartment is one of just 37 properties in the boutique new development of 145 Central Park North.
Developed by family-run GRID Group and designed by award-winning architects Gluck+, the glass-fronted 13-story 145 Central Park North development enjoys 100 ft on Central Park frontage, allowing for views that are unattainable nearly anywhere else in the city. Yiannes Einhorn, Principal at GRID Group said: “145 Central Park North is the culmination of many years spent meticulously mapping out an unconventional site. The unique footprint of the development enabled us to capture views of the most spectacular skyline in the world for every residence.”
Though a truly 21st century building, Gluck+ was careful to ensure the building complemented its early 19th century neighbors, opting for a deep bronze facade on the lower nine floors, reflective of the height and aesthetics of a defining bygone era in the neighborhood’s history.
The 2,238-sq-ft duplex apartment occupies the ground and second floor and offers all the space of a suburban family home in the heart of New York City.
Move-in ready with white oak floors throughout, a spacious foyer leads into an open-plan living room, dining room, and kitchen flooded with natural light thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows and doors out to a private yard. Perfectly equipped for entertaining, the paved back garden is enveloped by lush green planters and features a barbeque outdoor sink and ample dining and seating options.
As impressive as downstairs is, the upper floor of this duplex is its crowning glory. All four bedrooms occupy the second floor, with two positioned at the front of the apartment with full-length windows framing the beautiful park view over the road.
The master features a walk-in closet and a pristine Italian tiled en-suite bathroom with double vanity, a walk-in shower and a deep soaking tub to while away the stresses of city life. The second bedroom has its own walk-in closet and a full en-suite bathroom and offers the park views that the master lacks, therefore a switch-around could be on the cards.
Owning an apartment at 145 Central Park North means access to a host of amenities including a full-time doorman, a children’s playroom, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a residents-only lounge, and the incredible rooftop deck with magnificent views of the park and the Manhattan skyline.
The building also features a number of smart features to reduce energy consumption including high-performing exterior enclosure walls to provide heightened insulation and air infiltration as well as a heating and cooling system operated by heat pumps negating the need for fossil fuels.
