53 West 53 is a standout development, a towering residential building in the heart of Midtown just steps from the Museum of Modern Art. Designed by world-renowned architect Jean Nouvel, this supertall condominium rises 82 stories and features 161 gorgeous residences, including full-floor homes and duplex penthouses with private elevators. While every unit in the building is bespoke with high-end finishes and exceptional amenities, Penthouse 76 is the epitome of world-class design and luxury lifestyle.
Penthouse 76, a massive duplex residence that comprises the building’s entire 76th and 77th floors, includes 7,973 square feet of interior space with four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. This one-of-a-kind penthouse residence was furnished by Fox-Nahem Associates and features a sophisticated and awe-inspiring design that is centered around the rare size and proportions of the home.
The newly-listed Penthouse 76 at 53 West 53 is priced at $63.815 million. The furnishings and artwork are also available for separate purchase, making this sprawling duplex residence the city’s most exceptional turnkey furnished residence to date.
The unit has been entirely customized using artisan pieces and museum-quality artwork from Pace Gallery. Joe Nahem, principal of Fox-Nahem Associates, and his team selected a variety of multi-textural furnishings and accessories to create a dynamic and layered space to complement the inherent beauty of the home.
Every aspect of this unit is of the highest quality. Stepping off the elevator, residents find themselves in the elegant entry foyer of Penthouse 76, which leads into the dramatic double-height great room where visitors will immediately notice the brilliant skyline and Central Park views featured by the three walls of floor-to-ceiling windows. There is a chic custom bar designed by Amuneal and ample seating by Vladimir Kagan, but the great room’s centerpiece is clearly the massive 11-foot-wide limestone-encased gas fireplace, which is accentuated by an impressive clay installation by Peter Lane.
The home’s formal dining area is a perfect entertaining space, an extravagant room with more stunning views. It has bespoke features, including a custom dining table and chairs by Patrick Naggar, custom pendant lighting by John Koga, and art from Studio Hoon Kim.
The incredible kitchen, a home chef’s dream, connects to the dining room. The bright, windowed kitchen, designed by Thierry Despont for Molteni, has statuary marble countertops that give it a sleek look, pendant lights that add a splash of color, a backlit backsplash, and appliances from Miele and Sub-Zero. The breakfast nook with a colorful table, custom-designed by Elyse Graham, is right by the window and offers a perfect space to enjoy informal meals while admiring the remarkable views.
The primary suite is practically its own unit, offering 1,300 square feet of space accessible by the dramatic interior staircase or the home’s private interior elevator. Located on the 77th floor, the room boasts spectacular views of Central Park to the north, as well as magnificent city views to the south and east. Its monochromatic cream color scheme and plush textures give it a stylish but inviting feel. The room has a vast walk-in closet custom-designed by Scavolini and an oversized en-suite bathroom.
The bathroom’s radiant heated floors provide year-round comfort, and the Noir St. Laurent marble, Verona limestone, Persian gold travertine, and polished nickel Dornbracht fixtures offer unmatched extravagance. Two separate custom-carved vanities with automated mirrors provide plenty of personal space, and the cast iron Lefroy Brooks soaking tub is the perfect place to unwind after a long day. The bathroom also features a private water closet, a free-standing steam shower, and a linen closet.
