Duplex Home Custom Made from 16th and 15th Floors
A “dream” duplex home – created by combining three separate apartments comprising the entire 16th floor, along with a large portion of the 15th floor, at the Naftali Group’s distinctive 20-story condominium tower at 234 East 23rd Street – has gone to contract for over $8.5 million. The charismatic building is now over 80% sold and is experiencing growing interest due to its beautifully designed and executed interior finishes, spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline, and its hotel-inspired amenities and lounge spaces.
“The buyer of the recently signed duplex lives in the Gramercy neighborhood and was determined to stay, but wanted to be in a full service building with great views for his growing family. Luckily we had three apartments adjacent to each other that he was able to combine. The final configuration is absolutely fantastic,” said Alexa Lambert, Executive Vice President of Stribling Marketing Associates, which is marketing the development. “We’ve also recently released the penthouse, which has a beautiful layout and features a beautiful outdoor loggia leading up to a huge private roof deck with expansive views of the city in every direction.”
Along with the penthouse, a few upper-level residences with prime views in the 57-unit condominium were recently released in the boutique-hotel-inspired building. Prices for the remaining residences start at $1.4 million for a one-bedroom and go to $2.9 million for a three bedroom and $5.975 million for the 2,302 square-foot penthouse with additional outdoor space.
With interiors designed by Rottet Studio, a firm well-known for their hotel designs, 234 East 23rd Street marries classic Manhattan architecture with modern elements. The residences offer an open and airy living space with floor-to-ceiling casement windows that allow sunlight to spill onto the hardwood floors. The homes feature chef-caliber kitchens with open shelving and include state-of-the art Sub-Zero and Bertazzoni appliances. The luxurious bathrooms have a hip factor with the qualities of an urban spa.
When residents step into 234 East 23rd Street, they walk into a lobby styled after a boutique hotel. Amenities include a roof terrace with a barbecue and outdoor kitchen and a garden terrace catering to residents seeking a moment of solitude or a quiet spot to read a great book. There is also a state-of-the-art fitness center, lounge area with a pool table, individual private storage units and bicycle storage.
