It is unheard of in New York that a building offers tenants more open living spaces than closed, but that is exactly what makes this West Chelsea penthouse interesting...
Jardim, which means "garden" in Portuguese, is the first American project of the Brazilian architect Isay Weinfeld’s, who infused his love for nature into many places in the building. There are only 36 residences between the two 11-storey towers - Jardim Norte and Jardim Sul - which are connected by a lush courtyard. While each residence boasts spectacular views of the city and the Hudson River, Jardim Norte 11A is the crown jewel of the entire project and is currently on the list for $ 21 million.
Private elevator opens directly into the residence, where there is a living room lit by the sun, a beautiful open kitchen and four bedrooms and five bathrooms. The whole penthouse has high ceilings and is designed with Weinfeld's signature modern, elegant aesthetics. Oak floors made of wide planks, custom oak panelling, imported Italian doors and meticulously crafted elements make the home exude warmth. In total, the residence has 455 square meters of interior.
In addition to beautiful interiors, exteriors are what make this apartment so special. The penthouse has a sculptural spiral staircase that connects to a private open roof terrace with several living and dining areas, an open kitchen and, most impressively, a pool overlooking the city. Even the main-level kitchen has its own terrace with dining table, perfect for warm and sunny days in New York. The penthouse boasts 460 square meters of open space.
The common areas of the building include a private tenant club featuring a lighted indoor pool, a fitness centre, games room, massage treatment room and a changing room with steam rooms and saunas. Weinfeld also designed the building to be protected from paparazzi for VIP tenants, with a private tunnel. Dense leaves and a latticed lobby wall also help high-profile guests feel safe. And when you go out, you will be in a neighbourhood known for its great art galleries, cultural centres and restaurants.
