135W52, a 109-unit condo building from the Chetrit Group and Clipper Equity, is tucked between 52nd and 53rd streets in New York. The real gem atop 135 West 52nd Street is the $16,8 million triplex penthouse which includes 5,153 interior and 1,101 exterior square feet, offering five bedrooms, four full and two half-baths, and three private terraces. The lavish residence was designed by architectural firm CetraRuddy, led by principal Eugene Flotteron, to be the crown jewel of the dazzling 47-story building.
Upon entering the penthouse the first thing you notice is the abundance of space. A sprawling 32′ 7 -wide living room is perfected with a double-sided stone fireplace, wet bar, and adjoining powder room. The staircase in the foyer connects each floor, designed with 100 panels of handmade curved glass.
The Master Suite occupies the entire east wing. It comprises the 20′ 8 x17′ 7 bedroom that provides triple exposures, a private terrace, dressing room, and massive windowed master bath with freestanding tub, oversize, two-sided shower, and dual private water closets, exquisitely appointed with custom Siberian Mink stone countertops, Fantini Venezia wall-mounted polished nickel fixtures, custom recessed medicine cabinets, and Tom Dixon hand-blown glass pendant lamps.
At the opposite end of this level are three additional bedrooms. There’s also a fifth bedroom at the lower level, that offers north-facing exposures and an en suite bath.
The lower level features a gracious foyer and double-height great room, decorated with floor-to-ceiling glass that revealed formal dining area. At 17′ 7 x17′ 4, the adjacent windowed chef’s kitchen mesmerizes with a center island breakfast bar, both north- and south-facing exposures for exceptional sunlight, and outfitted with top-of-the-line Miele appliances and a beautiful color scheme of Dada Italian Walnut and custom back-painted glass cabinetry and Calacatta Vision marble countertops.
The triple-height stair leads to a skyline lounge with wet bar, lined with sliding glass on either side to reveal two sprawling private terraces, one of which features an outdoor kitchen with a gas grill. The residents of the penthouse will be able to use top of the line amenities that the 135W52 offers, including a 24-hour concierge service, 75-foot lap pool, a private club for residents and a golf, soccer and baseball simulator.
