240 Centre Street, PENTHOUSE
Imagine owning an iconic and historic piece of Manhattan. In a city known for constantly raising the bar in luxury living, it's surprisingly difficult to find a truly one-of-a-kind residence. Set within the gorgeous clock tower atop the landmarked Police Building, this astounding penthouse is one of only a handful of properties in New York City with a domed cupola. Offering a unique, 360-degree view, set in the middle of bustling Manhattan, you find yourself in a quiet, inspiring space unlike any other in the city. This meticulously renovated home embraces an intimate ambiance on a g...rand scale. In the north wing, Art Deco frosted glass doors reveal an elegant private dining room, while down the hall a cozy media room is outfitted with endless built-ins under a striking coffered ceiling. The spectacular eat-in kitchen makes the most of breathtaking eastern views, and features glass-front cabinets, built-in window benches, a massive marble-topped island, and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances by Viking, Sub-Zero, and Bosch. Toward the south wing is an elegant marble bathroom with a deep-soaking tub and downtown views. Further on, you'll find one of three full bedroom suites, while a relaxing family room with its own full kitchen, powder room, and laundry room wrap around a secondary entrance. Topped by a mezzanine-level bedroom with en suite bathroom, this wing could serve as gracious private guest quarters. The palatial yet serene master suite is on the second level, outfitted with a sitting room and an enviable custom walk-in closet lined with drawers, shelves, and shoe storage. The en suite master bathroom with free-standing tub and separate shower makes a powerful statement in black, white, and grey, anchored by a floor-to-ceiling glass tile mosaic and glistening ebony floor tile. Ascend the spiral staircase or elevator to access the majestic, circular living room the home's grand centerpiece. Hanging from a 25-foot tall ceiling, a striking 7-foot chandelier seems to hover in midair, while a floating staircase with a scrollwork handrail encircles the room. Incredible private outdoor spaces surround this level at compass points two terraces face north and south, and two Juliet balconies face east and west acting as lookout perches for the building's former police inhabitants. Today they serve as perfect aeries to take in the city with the building's Edwardian Baroque limestone exterior and sights of the Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge, and One World Trade Center as your dramatic backdrop. Up the floating staircase is one of the most unique and breathtaking spaces in all of Manhattan. Inside the cupola clock tower, sunlight is filtered in by magnificent 6-foot tall clock faces, deep-set in the original brick that surrounds this tranquil sanctuary. Wood beams, copper, and terra cotta tile rise 30 feet overhead, lining the building's iconic dome and crowning this glorious abode. Skylights and oversized windows are found throu
