The Pierre Tower -38th Floor - on the Park steeped in history, this spectacular tower residence perched on the Northwest corner of the 38th floor in the iconic Pierre Hotel is a stunningly renovated aerie. Once owned by Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Burge and then by Giancarlo Giammetti, the longtime business partner of Valentino fashion designer Valentino Garavani, this apartment is stylish and perfect for entertaining and sophisticated living. The gracious layout includes two-bedrooms, two-bathrooms, and soaring 11-foot ceilings. No attention to detail was spared in this Peter Marino renovation - elements include Parquet de Versailles floors, faux treated walls, and custom lighting for artwork. Upon entering the apartment, there is an ebony paneled foyer accented by antique mirrored panels that opens into the gallery. Flowing discretely off the gallery is the renovated kitchen, which has ample storage. The breathtaking 31-foot Northwest corner living/dining room has four casement windows capturing the expanse of Central Park over to Central Park West up to the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir and beyond. Natural light floods the room all day. The generous proportions allow for multiple seating areas and a dining table for entertaining. Opening off the living/dining room through an entryway flanked by custom bookcases on either side is the second bedroom. This room is currently configured as a library, but with a dressing room and full bathroom it can easily transition into a proper bedroom. This room has handsome oak paneling, custom bookshelves, and open North Park views over townhouses. Hidden off the library is a custom dressing room and marbled bathroom with soaking tub; this bathroom has access back to the main foyer allowing it to function as the guest bath as well. Completing this home is the master bedroom outfitted with Venetian plaster walls and two large casement windows overlooking Central Park and the stunning Manhattan midtown skyline. It has a spacious walk-in custom closet and luxurious marbled bathroom. The room has two entrances, one off the main gallery and another through a hidden doorway into the living/dining room. Residents of The Pierre enjoy access to all hotel services including 24-hour concierge, daily maid service, valet service, and Fitness Center. They also enjoy room service from the Perrine Restaurant.
