438 East 12th Street, PHE - East Village, New York
This spectacular corner 3,482 square foot four-bedroom, four and a half bath penthouse residence designed by Paris Forino offers ceiling heights up to 15'6" and over 1,300 square feet of private outdoor space. Oversized casement windows framed in statuary bronze and dramatic southern and eastern views accentuate natural light. Exceptional interior features include seven-inch-wide plank European white oak flooring, 8' high interior doors with burnished brass hardware and custom architectural millwork throughout. Designed for entertaining, the spacious living and dining area open up onto an oversized wraparound terrace featuring outdoor cabinetry with a built-in gas barbecue grill and custom landscaping. Blurring the distinction between indoor and outdoor space, the terrace can also be accessed from the master bedroom and a home office. Satin lacquer custom Italian cabinetry, limestone and Calacatta marble countertops and blackened metal hardware compose the expertly crafted open kitchen equipped with oversized appliances by Wolf, Bosch and Sub-Zero. The master suite is a true sanctuary with a large walk in closet and an en-suite five fixture master bath highlighted by luminous design details. The serene space features herringbone Bianco Dolomiti mosaic floors complemented by the luxury of radiant heat, Bianco Dolomiti-clad walls, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. A custom white lacquer Italian vanity cabinet with blackened metal accents and ample storage is topped by stunning Calacatta Ice marble. Secondary baths are finished with Bianco Carrara honed marble mosaic walls and floor, a Corbata Nero marble framed vanity mirror and a cerused white oak Italian vanity topped by Bianco Dolomiti. Chrome fittings by Waterworks are featured throughout all baths. The dramatic powder room design offers watercolor glazed penny round mosaic walls, custom lighting and a corner-wrapping vanity mirror. A utility closet with washer/dryer completes this brilliantly-designed residence.
