The New York City Corner Duplex Penthouse that’s owned by fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger recently hit the market at a value of $50m. Having had a $20m renovation in 2008, it’s not just the name behind the property that gives it such great appeal. What’s more, the exceptional property is located at One Central Park South, providing the owner with privileged Central Park and Fifth Avenue views.
Through its major renovation, the penthouse was restored to the original grandeur of French-Renaissance style and as a result exudes opulence, along with the fashion designer’s distinct design accents. Throughout each corner of the 6,210-sq-ft space, his personality shines through.
Combining elegance and luxury, the penthouse’s 12 rooms feature ceilings reaching up to 35ft high with custom millwork, stonework and reclaimed hardwood floors. The first floor encompasses an alcove library, custom panelled stately office, a media room with a decorative fireplace, bistro-inspired eat-in kitchen, a formal dining room with wet bar and a domed tea room with a custom hand-painted mural by Hilary Knight.
A sweeping spiral staircase then leads up to the upper level, which comprises four private bedroom suites, including the luxurious corner tower master suite with decorative fireplace, double dressing rooms and a spa-inspired bathroom, plus a private terrace overlooking Central Park.
