Truly Magnificent

By AP Connolly

Spread over approximately 2,300 square feet, Residence #416 is a custom-designed four-bedroom, three-and-one-half bath home that perfectly blends over 100 years of rich architectural history with stunning all-new interiors by illustrious architect Robert A.M. Stern.

The great room with 10-foot ceilings provides the perfect setting for living and dining. The adjacent open chef’s kitchen with an island has white lacquer cabinets designed by Molteni and Calacatta, Gold countertops, an island, and a backsplash. There is a 5-burner cooktop, extra-large oven, and refrigerator/freezer from Gaggenau.

The expansive primary suite ideally has a unique bay window overlooking the tranquil, planted courtyard. There are two custom walk-in closets and a lavish en-suite bathroom adorned with Siberian white slab marble, a custom vanity with double sinks by Molteni, radiant heat, and fittings by Kohler, Dornbracht, and Kallista.

Two generously proportioned secondary bedrooms also face the beautiful courtyard and share a full bathroom with Grigio Nicola stone, radiant heated floors, and a vanity by Molteni. A fourth bedroom overlooks Broadway and has a similarly furnished en-suite bathroom. A powder room is appointed with polished Nero Marquina marble and a white marble carved sink.

The apartment has new gorgeous white oak floors with chevron and plank patterns throughout and restored oversized mahogany windows. There is a laundry room with a side-by-side whirlpool washer and dryer, a high-performance VRF dedicated HVAC system, automated shades, and Intrahome Systems integrated technology infrastructure. 

Initially constructed in 1908, The Belnord is one of the Upper West Side’s most iconic entire block buildings. The attended gate leads to a porte-cochere and beautifully landscaped 22,000 square-foot courtyard centered around an elegant marble fountain. Residents can park their cars while loading and unloading, and taxis and Ubers may bring you to your door.

Amenities include a state-of-the-art fitness center, a double-height sports court with a basketball hoop, separate playrooms for children and teens, plus a Club Lounge with a separate dining room. The building is fully staffed with gate attendants, a concierge, a resident manager, and porters. Info: Rental for $17,500.
