The beautiful residence at The Belnord, an incredible landmarked building that occupies an entire block on the Upper West Side, has just hit the market. Situated on the Upper West Side, the building occupies an entire city block bounded by West 86th and 87th Streets, Amsterdam Avenue and Broadway. Robert A.M. Stern Architects, the world-renowned architecture firm, is overseeing the restoration of the original architecture and re-imagining the interiors for the residences.
Listed for $12.575M, residence #1012 is an extraordinary floor-through home offering 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths generously distributed over a sprawling 3,949 square feet. Beauty abounds with north and south exposures; soaring 10-foot ceilings; fully restored, oversized mahogany windows; and white oak floors with chevron and plank patterns throughout. The residence also features a formal entry foyer and gallery; an eat-in kitchen with Calacatta Gold marble countertops and backsplash, state-of-the-art Gaggenau appliances and a stunning kitchen banquette; and an expansive master suite with two walk-in closets and a spa-like master bathroom with radiant heated floors, custom-designed vanities, a deep soaking tub with separate glass-enclosed shower, and accessories by Kohler, Dornbracht, and Kallista.
The Belnord is the example of the remarkable architecture of turn-of-the-century residential buildings. Originally constructed in 1908 and designed by famed architecture firm Hiss & Weekes, it features an Italian Renaissance-style palazzo with a pair of magnificent, gated arched entryways painted with sgraffito frescoes. The Belnord‘s base is comprised of rusticated, light gray Indiana limestone that is garnished with European-style terra-cotta decorative panels, elaborate design elements, and a stunning array of extra-large windows, all with classic weighted sashes and some with copper-clad bays.
Robert A.M. Stern Architects envisioned the residences with classic layouts and contemporary interiors. Each apartment features lofty ceilings, wide oak floors, sun-washed vistas and expansive dimensions. The kitchens, that were meticulously designed to enhance warmth and efficiency, are available in two color palettes, both with Calacatta Gold marble counters, lacquer-painted or cerused oak cabinetry by Molteni and state-of-the-art appliances. Each master bathroom is large and lavish with sumptuous features like double sinks, a freestanding soaking tub and separate shower. Flush mirrors conceal bathroom cabinets over spacious double vanities. All master baths are finished with Siberian White book-matched marble and rich platinum-finish Dornbracht fittings and hardware.
