Former CEO of Barneys, Mark Lee and husband, co-chairman of fashion PR firm, KCD, Ed Filipowski have put their stylish Chelsea penthouse at 410 West 24th Street on the market for $8,400,000.
The penthouse was meticulously designed by Mark Janson, co-partner of Janson Goldstein, who the couple brought in to carry out a no-expense spared renovation. Drawing inspiration from Rosario Candela, 1940's cinema, "vintage" modern art, mid-century modern furniture and the furious world of high-fashion, every niche and crevice of this home sings a song of serene, sumptuous living and grandiose entertaining. Not to mention, it was featured on the cover of Architectural Digest.
Located in the iconic London Terrace Towers, PHA features a sprawling wrap-around terrace, which boasts impressive views of the city, a great room with a charcoal marble mantled wood-burning fireplace and a library with a book-bordered doorway.
Upon entry, one lands upon the ornate herringbone patterned vestibule of fumed oak, which delightfully separates the twin entertaining spaces in that wing of the home: to the South, the eat-in Kitchen; to the north, the Great Room and Library.
In the Great Room, which is the perfect New York showcase for entertaining on scales both intimate and large , the principal interior focus is, of course, the charcoal marble mantled wood burning fireplace, which draws one's vision to its comely resting place.
The Master Suite, which absorbs a quarter of the apartment's living space, is located in the Southwest corner. With twin bathrooms, twin walk in closets, and twin exposures, one could very well say that it is the perfect place for two. The lavatories are adorned with Calacatta stone, Anne Sacks "vein-cut marble tile", and Waterworks fixtures.
Other features of the home include state-of-the-art tech, flush-mounted audio components, high-powered water pump to ensure high-pressure from every faucet and shower head, outdoor lighting, dual zoned AC and heat, fully irrigated terrace landscaping, pocket-doors to ensure room usage flexibility, and brand new plumbing / electrical systems.
Jordan Shea, Fredrik Eklund, and John Gomes at Douglas Elliman are the listing agents.
