Perfectly located at the epicenter of Manhattan's most desirable residential neighborhood, 69th Street and Fifth Avenue, the Westbury Condominium's 'A' line apartments are considered the signature-line. The 'Jewel in the Crown' is arguably apartment 15A -- this aerie of serenity and quiet repose comprises eight beautifully proportioned, large-scale rooms (three bedrooms, 3.5 baths -- originally four bedrooms, five baths), all wrapped by planting balconies. The central focus of the apartment is a vast (40-foot) marble center entrance/reception gallery (you can dance in!) burnished with Venetian plaster - perfect for entertaining on a grand scale and sophisticated, gracious living. Also featured within: a 38-foot living - dining room, an enormous master suite (with commodious dressing room/walk-in closet) and ensuite master bath, library/media-room, two additional over-size bedrooms with bath, staff-room with bath, powder room, large and abundant closets throughout - all enhanced by high ceilings and crown moldings. Renovated to perfection, the apartment has been custom detailed with the highest-end fixtures and finishes. The chef's kitchen is larger than found in many of the world's finest restaurants! The apartment offers extraordinary versatile and practical space (approximately 3,900 square feet), easily reconfigured to owner requirements. The city views/vistas are spectacular and unencumbered in all directions (best in the building), and the entire apartment is suffused with the warm glow of constant sun. The 'Westbury' is in the top tier of New York's most distinguished, luxurious and iconic condominiums. Refined and elegant, the building exterior has been beautifully restored prior to its conversion to a world-class condominium in 2000. Since then, the Westbury has been impeccably managed and maintained, offering the very highest level of amenities and services among New York's top ranked, illustrious 'white glove' prewar buildings, including fitness center, over-size storage room and wine closet. Uniquely cosseted on a leafy side street of one of Manhattan's loveliest park blocks, the Westbury has close proximity (or easy access) to the 'Best of NY' - private schools, shopping, museums, restaurants, riding and jogging paths of Central Park, Broadway and Lincoln Center! Unlike Manhattan's newer luxury condominiums, the building has a glamorous and storied past. 'When New York had all the iridescence of the beginning of the world' (F. Scott Fitzgerald), from the 20's through the 70's, the Westbury Hotel was the 'home away from home' for many world luminaries -- from show business, finance and politics to European nobility. Listen closely and perhaps you will hear within the patina of the Westbury's tranquil interior, the hushed murmur of voices -- from the regulars who gathered at the 'Polo Bar' or those who simply passed through to relax and unwind during New York's last 'Golden Age.
