New York on a whole offers a completely new definition of luxury. In the city that never sleeps you can see some of the finest art, experience some of the finest shopping experiences and stay in some of the best properties in the world.
If you want to experience the hustle and bustle of a big city but be able to unwind in pure bliss at the end of a long day, New York is the place to be. We visited two of the best residences in the city to give you an inside look into the luxury lifestyle they have to offer.
We took a trip over to One57, one of the most prestigious condominium residences in New York. Based right next to Central Park, towering more than 1000ft over midtown Manhattan. It’s location allows the residents to have exceptional views of the city, that are hard to find. It’s location is often referred to as ‘Billionaires row’ which speaks for itself.
Designed by architect Christian de Portzamparc, One57 prides itself on its cinematic skylines and sophisticated architectural integrity. We got the chance to get inside and really see what One57 has to offer you. As we walked into one of the condos we were greeted with a very homely feeling, but also very clean and contemporary when it comes to the interior design. Neutral colours along with soft furnishings accomplished the perfect ratio of comfort and style.
The living space is open and the kitchen is equipped with anything you might need. The bedroom flow with this feel of contemporary comfort and luxury, with large open windows so you can enjoy the view, whilst being surrounded by the height of home comforts. Along with the condos themselves being filled with every high end essential you deserve. The building itself is filled with other wonderful amenities for you to use. This includes a swimming pool, lounge and a state of the art gym, with the best equipment available.
One could never feel uncomfortable living at One57. Everything you could need being all in one building, and if you need anything else, being in the heart of New York City, you know it would be right around the corner.
We were also able to get a look inside the Kent properties, another luxurious condominium located on the upper west side of the city. Placed perfectly inbetween Schurz Park and Central Park you’re surrounded by the essentials, including quick access to the second avenue subway, which is ideal.
Properties at the Kent range from two bedroom to five bedroom, meaning it’s perfect for anybody, including those family folk. With the interiors of the rooms being designed by Champalimaud, it gives you access to personalize your condo. The Kent has many options in flooring and kitchen finishes, meaning you can really add a homely and personal feel, while still enjoying the luxury quality.
With large corner windows allowing lots of natural light into the living spaces. You have a spacious but cozy feel, with neutral toned soft furnishings to please anyone’s taste. The kitchen is fitted with high end Miele appliances so you can whip something up with ease. The Kent is also full of amenities to make your life easy and to keep you entertained. With even the lobby being aesthetically pleasing, you will always be satisfied with your surroundings.
The Kent contains a drawing room which is perfect for your visitors, and indoor pool and sauna, great for both personal use and use with family and friends. Camp Kent, and indoor play area which is ideal for children and family time. And the most impressive, the sound lounge, which was designed to perfection by Lenny Kravitz. Giving guests an amazing area to either practice instruments or stream media.
There is absolutely everything here at the Kent, something to suit anyone’s taste, whilst living in luxury. What more could you want?
