EXTRAORDINARY is when a rare gem is found, beyond extraordinary is when another glitters above the explosion of billionaire row condos. So is the buyer who is among the first to see hidden value. Towers may rise, but only one amazing building has the most coveted position precisely centered on Central Park South.
THE HAMPSHIRE HOUSE is a quiet haven; regal, private, not screaming its presence, it doesn't need to. Another discerning buyer will soon discover this gem in the crown of Central Park. A half floor on the 29th floor has the most enchanting and mind-blowing views of "the park", with approximately over 50' of frontage from the grand living room to its library and stunning setback terrace.
29th Floor West (aka 2904/5/6) is opportunity. Currently two apartments owned by the same sellers, the north, or park side, had been renovated and is move in ready. It's living room is 21'10" x21'8" with high beamed ceilings, lots of glass, and double doors to the terrace. 29W is currently set up as two bedrooms, with two stunning full baths clad in gorgeous stone and wonderfully designed kitchen (which can be enlarged). The south side and common areas have been purchased for a combination of approximately 3000'. This space is fabulously raw, stripped to its concrete and glorious southern sun and open city views. Plans are available with city and building approvals in place. Perhaps the artist might love its downtown loft appeal. Either way, this will be a most stunning combination into a magnificent two to three bedroom, six room home with gracious entertaining spaces and flow and all with the life of the park as a glorious carpet before you.
The Hampshire House is a white glove serviced building located in Billionaire's Row, the heart of Manhattan, a coop with a condo sensibility. The executive manager lives in the building. The white glove service is comparable to the finest hotels in the world with an extraordinary staff which includes the doormen, concierge, security desk, bell captain, onsite and daily housekeeping and engineering, laundry service, valet, and full health club.
Purchases are acceptable in LLCs or Trusts. 50% financing, 3% flip tax paid by buyer at closing. The application process is fast and straightforward, and interviews are through zoom. The maintenance includes all utilities and basic cable. So well run, the building has never had an assessment, including for the current local law 11 work nearing completion.
Within two to six blocks is the best of the city, from MOMA to Nordstroms and Bergdorf's, Cipriani, Avra, and Milos, Lincoln Center, Columbus Circle, Broadway theaters, and the vibrant restaurant row of Hell's kitchen. Of course, Central Park is yours, with its walking paths, ponds, and ice-skating rink, the stunning seasonal transitions, and the most beautiful views in the world.Some photos are virtually staged.
