From the first moment you step into this spectacular room, you feel like you’re in a classic hunting lodge somewhere in the English countryside. It’s a place where brandys are shared and novels are written. Well, at least we think so.
This wondrous living room at 41 Central Park West pays homage to the arts and crafts style of architecture while commanding a never-ending panorama of Central Park. For this reason, we offer our latest edition to our “Rooms We Love” series.
Apartment 11-A at Harperley Hall is a cavernous residence measuring some 5600 square feet across 15 rooms. The six-bedroom home has been exquisitely renovated and emulates the building’s original Arts and Crafts theme but with a modern twist. Given its grandeur, it’s not surprising that the apartment was once the personal residence of Henry W. Wilkinson, the building’s architect.
41 Central Park West sits at the southwest corner of West 64th Street and CPW. The pre-war co-op is a bit more intimate than some of its peer buildings along the park and for many this is the drawing card. The building also fronts West 64th Street and has a gateway entry off an interior courtyard.
The grand living room of apartment 11-A measures 24×24 and anchors the entertainment wing of the residence. The corner room also feeds into a windowed office and a separate library, both with park views. The details of this room overwhelm. Ten-foot high wood-paneled coffered ceilings draw your immediate attention. Eight-foot tall wainscotting lines the room’s perimeter and ties into a massive stone fireplace. Oversized French Doors frame the postcard views.
Perched high above the park, the terrace spans the entire width of the living room as well as the three additional rooms that front the park. In total, the outdoor space stretches a full 73 feet across the entire front of the apartment. The views are second to none.
The current ask for this divine residence is $18.9 million. The listed price represents a per square foot value of $3775. The property is being represented by Kyle Blackmon of Compass and Patricia Isen and Betsy Green of Douglas Elliman. To learn more about this home, please visit Linecity.com
