From the listing: Welcome to what some regard as “The Healthiest Home” in New York City. Inside Lincoln Square’s most coveted building located just one block from Central Park, this one-of-a-kind 4,300 square foot combination home was conceived by AD100 Elite architect, Tony Ingrao and top health industry experts in pursuit of creating a home whose focus went beyond the top-of-the-line luxury finishes, but a home that was defined by how it elevated the standard of one’s quality of life and daily rejuvenation. Pure Air, Pure Lighting, Pure Water, Pure Quiet. Spanning a convertible 5 bedroom and 4.5 bathrooms with rare, enchanting city vistas that overlook everything from Central Park to the Hudson River, Residence 35DEF is equipped with the latest smart home automation systems, progressive health technology, and luxurious handpicked designer finishes.
A welcoming foyer that’s ideal for artwork with an adjacent powder room and walk-in coat closet leads into an expansive 42-foot-wide great room that’s worthy of any occasion. A stainless-steel fireplace crafted into a thick-slab Calcutta marble mantle creates the centerpiece of the central living space, detailed with wide-plank white oak floors and an entertainer’s wet bar fitted with cerused Douglas Fir cabinetry, a custom sink, and a Sub-Zero wine cooler. The formal dining room enjoys sweeping corner views of the New York skyline and Central Park, with enough space to comfortably accommodate a 10-person dining setup.
A Savant home automation system seamlessly controls an integrated speaker system, heating, AC, lighting, and motorized blinds in every room from the single touch of your phone. Oversized UV-protected floor-to-ceiling windows line the home’s north, east, and western exposures, and a triple-osmosis water filtration system in the kitchen and primary suite. The true chef’s kitchen is finished with the same exceptional detail, including leathered-stone floors, limestone countertops, Dornbracht fixtures, double Wolf ovens, oversized Sub-Zero double refrigerator with matching quadruple freezer, and Gaggenau induction range and dishwasher, and is drenched in northern sunlight.
Past the kitchen are a windowed breakfast banquette that flows into an inviting media room, enclosed with floor-to-ceiling casement windows, a built-in media system large enough for an 85-inch television, and custom emerald lacquer storage. The home is pin-drop quiet and made with sustainable materials and unadulterated, natural wood. The primary suite stands alone as its own private wing and spans over 2,000 square feet designed for added privacy and a quiet space for rejuvenation. As you enter your private quarters, you are led down a hallway with custom sleek storage and features a private office which then leads to your sun-drenched bedroom overlooking lush views of Central Park.
The bedroom showcases an oversized window with modern trim lighting allowing the views to be seen from the chamber’s hallway. Adjacent to the bedroom, a walk-in dressing room closet with built-in storage, a private gym/yoga room with an attached sauna that’s spacious enough to be converted to a private den. An en-suite oasis completes the bedroom wing with spa-level Fantini fixtures, heated towel racks and floors, an enclosed water closet, and a Mediterranean Blue quartzite wet room with a steam rainfall shower and jetted soaking tub. Within the infrastructure, the home is designed with state-of-the-art Ketra lighting systems that modulate accents and ambient lighting according to the sun’s daily axis optimizing one’s circadian rhythm.
Influenced by many factors such as sunlight, your circadian rhythm is a 24-hour internal clock that runs subconsciously in your brain and cycles between alertness during the day and tiredness in the evening. Studies have found that circadian rhythm regulates sleep-wake cycles and influences your molecular biology, affecting performance, coordination, energy, and exhaustion when not optimally synced. The remaining bedrooms boast picturesque views of Lincoln Center, the Hudson River, and Upper West Side and are well-appointed with custom closets, black-out shades, and en-suite bathrooms. The home is finished with a laundry room that features a stacked washer/dryer, custom shelving, and an en-suite bathroom. The Park Millennium is a coveted luxury condominium encompassing an entire block nestled between Lincoln Center and Central Park.
Amenities include 24-hour door attendants, concierge service, a live-in super, and private storage. Located on the ground floor, is a 140,000 square foot multi-level Equinox Sports Club with a myriad of offerings; dynamic group fitness programs, a rooftop deck, an outdoor track, extensive cardiovascular and weight training equipment, 2 basketball courts, boxing, soccer, volleyball, a 25-yard swimming pool, a rock-climbing wall, spa, yoga classes and the renowned Mind Body Studio. The building is moments from trendy dining and shopping options, and it is close to Columbus Circle and the American Museum of Natural History. Nearby subway lines include the 1/2/3/A/C/B/D.
