Prewar Grandeur and Sophistication THE ONE YOU HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR. The penthouse atop the world-renowned Ritz Carlton Hotel at 50 Central Park South is the crown jewel of Manhattan apartments. With its heart-stopping views of Central Park this nine-room luxurious home offers an inspired renovation that breathes a new life of sophistication and quiet elegance into the distinguished prewar building designed and built by Emery Roth in 1930. A wonderful place to live and entertain, the residence is entered through a large private foyer. The entrance gallery flows into the grand ballroom which exquisitely showcases dramatic panoramic views of Central Park, Fifth Avenue and Central Park West. The luxurious use of materials such as macassar ebony strike a dramatic contrast to the glorious light streaming in through the eight oversized picture windows and heightens the drama of the breathtaking views in this extraordinary location.
Beyond the ballroom is the library/living room with double exposures and handsome built-in bookcases. There are two stately limestone gas fireplaces in the apartment. At the opposite end of the ballroom, the generous dining room easily accommodates a baronial-sized dining table. A perfectly concealed pocket wall-panel separates the dining room and kitchen for privacy or opens to expand the functionality of the space. The chef's kitchen showcases the finest appliances as well as cabinetry made of the signature macassar ebony. The grand kitchen easily accommodates caterers to serve 100 dinner guests.
In the East wing of the apartment the very private Master bedroom suite features triple exposures with sun-filled city views. The sumptuous master bath has his and her toilet rooms, a stunning double vanity, a separate shower room and a deep soaking tub providing privacy and views of Central Park and Fifth Avenue. Two expansive dressing room closets and a walk-in closet complete the space. In the West wing of the apartment is a gorgeous second bedroom and en-suite bath both with park views. The third bedroom complete with full bath has southern city views.
The upper level is built for pure enjoyment and grand-scale entertaining. It is graced by a glass-encased solarium and a 60-foot expanse of terrace that is 15 feet deep. Three sets of French doors open onto the terrace allowing for a 25' by 60' skytop space for entertaining and enjoying the serene beauty and quiet of Central Park far removed
