If you’re looking to get your fix of extraordinary homes, look no further than the starchitect-designed 53 West 53, the dramatic 1,050-foot-high tower that dots the Manhattan skyline.
Masterfully designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel, the 82-floor skyscraper is a feat of modern architecture — and its interiors are equally spectacular. In fact, the recently unveiled model residence at 53 West 53 was designed by Rebecca Robertson, the former Home & Decorating Editor for Martha Stewart Living and co-author of the popular book Collected: Living With The Things You Love.
The first-of-its-kind model residence takes up the entire 65th floor of the Jean Nouvel-designed building, towering above The Museum of Modern Art (the building actually has three new MoMA gallery levels incorporated into its base). Appointed to match MoMa in style, the unique home — priced at a whopping $46,680,000 — is the definition of refined elegance. And we’re here to take you on a visual tour.
The massive residence occupies an entire floor at 53 West 53
What does $46.68 million buy? Besides the bragging rights of living in one of the newest starchitect-designed towers lining the Manhattan skyline and calling MoMa a neighbor, the residence comes with tons of features and amenities — and a more than generous floor plan.
Occupying the entire 65th floor at 53 West 53, the massive residence clocks in at just under 6,500 square feet of space, with the living room alone spanning 1,400 square feet. Accessed through its own private, high-speed elevator, the home has 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and a large scale eat-in kitchen that’s set in its own separate wing.
The home is anchored by a corner primary bedroom suite that features a walk-in closet and oversized dressing room, with an equally impressive bath. In addition to the primary bedroom, the home has 3 other bedrooms, each designed with their own distinctive personality, with artwork lining the walls of the rooms — adding to the overall feeling that the residence is curated rather than designed.
