This Manhattan loft boasts not one but two stellar design credits: its 15 Central Park West location was designed by Robert Stern, while its interiors are the handiwork of the Belgian master of minimalism, Axel Vervoordt.
Listed with Elizabeth Sample and Brenda Powers of Sotheby’s International Realty – East Side Manhattan Brokerage, the CPW Tower apartment has soaring 11 ft ceilings to match its hefty $14.9m price tag – and views over the leafy tree canopy of Central Park.
Vervoordt has channelled his classic, wabu sabi brand of minimalism into the serene, 2,367 sq ft white-washed interiors, which feature finely crafted bookshelves and built-in cabinetry throughout while a secret swing door connects the living room to the library, overlooking the park.
On the other side, two bedrooms have floor-to-ceiling windows, sumptuous bathrooms fitted with limestone and Calcutta marble, and a soaking tub. Different tactile finishes include white oak flooring, custom mouldings and black Corian worktops in the chef-grade kitchen.
CPW Tower offers residents a 14,000 sq ft gym, spa and swimming pool facilities, private dining room, fireside library and a picturesque reflecting pool.
