Charles Gwathmey’s vision was to create the most sophisticated, stunning, and elegant apartment in New York City. When he waved his magic wand to fashion the extraordinary one-and-only duplex at Beacon Court, he outdid even himself. The gossamer private world of dazzling glass floats above Manhattan like a celestial jewel befitting its exalted setting. Being offered for the first time ever, the wondrous world presents a unique ultramodern architectural treasure masterminded not only to be admired but to be lived in and enjoyed as well. Its stainless steel door opens onto a magnificent white paved stone floor where your eyes are drawn to a steel staircase with leather railing. What follows takes your breath away: a sweeping double-height expanse orchestrated with white Venetian plaster walls and maple floors showcases spectacular north and west views of Manhattan from two walls of towering windows. Attending on this level are a high-tech chef’s kitchen adorned in honed black granite, a media entertainment lounge, home office, and two staff rooms. The upper level continues the high drama to three view-filled bedrooms with ensuite baths, a den, and the master suite—one of the highlights of the entire duplex with its pristine office, sitting room, and two baths with white statuary marble walls and sinks and black absolute granite floors—a heavenly haven that strikingly epitomizes the grand and glorious scope and detail of Gwathmey’s vision. Furnished.
