A three-bedroom penthouse in an Art Deco landmark tower on the Upper West Side, one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in Manhattan, has come onto the market for $5 million.
The penthouse was converted from the water tower of The Century Condominium, a 33-story building designed in the 1930s by famed architect Irwin Chanin on the site of The Century Theater on Central Park West, between 62nd and 63rd streets.
“The conversion was done to its perfection. Now it offers a loft-style floor plan, high ceilings and spectacular views of the Central Park,” said Gail Bomze, who co-listed the property Wednesday with Hannah Bomze and Susan Hirschorn.
Spanning 2,100 square feet, the penthouse has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large living room, an open kitchen with a pantry and an office. One of the most interesting aspects of the residence are its pale-wood bookshelves, standing alone or encased above the windows in the living room, bedrooms and under the center island in the kitchen.
“The owner is an avid reader and book collector,” said Ms. Bomze, who declined to identify the seller. Public records on this unit aren’t traceable online.
With a price tag of $5 million, the penthouse is currently the most expensive listing in the building, which was landmarked in 1985, according to listing site StreetEasy.
Building amenities include a 24-hour doorman, concierge service and a private garden. In addition, residents can enjoy all the cultural and social happenings at Lincoln Center, the Time Warner Center and other parts of Manhattan by various subway lines that converge at Columbus Circle.
The listing was first reported by 6Sqft.
