Residence 10/11C is an architectural masterpiece having undergone a multi-year renovation to combine two units into a seamless duplex with six bedrooms plus a staff suite, eight full bathrooms and three powder rooms.
Upon arriving to the 10th floor, the glass-enclosed entry vestibule clad in palissandro bluette marble is the first glimpse of the home's subtle yet luxurious design that is incorporated all throughout. Through the private elevator entry foyer is the blue limestone cantilevering staircase that is not only visually show stopping but also functions as the main connection between the two floors. The corner great room is ideal for formal entertaining with its generous proportions, wood-burning fireplace, gorgeous powder room and wet bar connecting to the home's library. The library, clad in cerused white oak, features an additional wood-burning fireplace.
