Comprising the entire 78th and 79th floors for an astonishing total of 7,455 square feet, Penthouse 78 stands out as a truly palatial residence atop Jean Nouvel's iconic crystalline tower, offering four bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, dedicated service entrance, private interior elevator, and north-, south-, east-, and west-facing exposures that span across Central Park, the Hudson River, East River, City skyline, and beyond. Gracious proportions, magnificent details, and ceilings that range up to approximately 21'8" set the awe-inspiring stage for world-renowned designer Thierry Despont's masterfully conceived interiors. Bespoke detailing typically reserved for privately commissioned homes abounds, while a rich yet soft palette of museum-quality finishes imbues each space with both modern glamour and timeless elegance.

On the lower level, a dramatic double-height great room with fireplace spans 38'10" x 19'8", wrapped in three walls of floor-to-ceiling windows that artfully frame panoramic Central Park views. An airy gallery leads to the corner formal dining room, also with stunning Park views, adjoining the windowed custom kitchen by Thierry Despont for Molteni, where polished statuary marble countertops and a back-lit statuary backsplash complement back-painted glass cabinetry with polished nickel detailing and Dornbracht fixtures. The extensive suite of appliances by Miele and Sub-Zero includes a fully integrated refrigerator and freezer, five-burner cooktop with fully vented hood, integrated dishwasher, double wall oven, speed oven, under-counter wine refrigerator, and integrated coffee maker. Two generous bedrooms share access to a windowed bathroom clad in high-honed Verona limestone with polished nickel Dornbracht fixtures. A beautifully appointed powder room and discreet utility closet with washer and vented dryer complete this level.

Accessible either via the dramatic interior staircase or the private interior elevator, the 79th floor is extraordinary. The primary suite offers panoramic views spanning north, south, and east; a large walk-in closet; and an oversized en suite bath with radiant heated floors and south- and east-facing exposures. Elegantly appointed in polished Noir St. Laurent marble, high-honed Verona limestone, and polished Persian golden travertine with polished nickel Dornbracht fixtures throughout, the primary bathroom features two separate custom carved vanities, a cast iron Lefroy Brooks soaking tub, freestanding steam shower, private water closet with commode and bidet, and a linen closet. An additional bedroom on this level offers south- and west-facing views and a windowed en-suite bath clad in high-honed Verona limestone with polished nickel Dornbracht fixtures. No detail has been overlooked, from the custom interior lighting design by Thierry Despont in collaboration with Schwinghammer, to the motorized Lutron solar shades throughout with additional blackout shades in each bedroom, to the supply of humidified and filtered fresh air throughout the home.

With architecture by Pritzker Prize-winner Jean Nouvel and interiors by the legendary Thierry Despont, 53 West 53 is a true icon, rising 1,050 feet in the heart of Manhattan against the cinematic backdrop of Central Park and the surrounding cityscape. Over 30,000 square feet of extraordinary amenities and deeply personalized, five-star-hotel-level services transcend even the most discerning expectations.
