With interior design by New York-based architect, designer and artist Thierry Despont, Residence 18A is a 2,462 SF (228.7SM) north and east-facing two bedroom featuring high ceilings, gracious proportions and the rich attention to detail of a bespoke privately commissioned home. Interior features include 4" wide plank solid American oak floors, fully customized kitchens and baths, and elegantly crafted furniture-grade mahogany doors of over 9', with custom designed bronze hardware inspired by the tower's distinctive silhouette. Enclosed behind a large pocket door, creating maximum flexibility, the kitchen features polished statuary marble countertops and backlit backsplash with custom back-painted glass cabinetry by Molteni. Kitchen appliances include a Miele low profile cooktop, oven, fully-incorporated dishwasher and vented hood, GE microwave, and Sub-Zero refrigerator and wine refrigerator. The master bath is clad in Noir St. Laurent marble, golden travertine and Verona limestone, with a custom carved stone vanity and medicine cabinet above. The master bath also features radiant heated floors and Dornbracht fittings and accessories. High above The Museum of Modern Art, a short walk to Fifth Avenue and mere blocks from Central Park, the Jean Nouvel-designed 53 West 53 is a collection of 145 unique residences with super-luxury, hotel-like services and amenities. Occupancy early 2019.
