The moment you enter PH 55 at 56 Leonard you understand why world renowned architects Herzog & de Meuron won the Pritzker-prize. The first thing you notice is that it feels dramatic and exciting. Soaring ceiling heights of over 14 feet, endless views that feel like picture postcards of New York and two terraces that make you feel as if you are on top of the world make the apartment thrilling. The next thing you notice is that you feel quite at ease in the space. Dappled sunlight across beautiful wood floors, a wood burning fireplace ensconced in a white stucco-like wall and the perfect proportions of the rooms make the apartment comfortable and graceful. It is easy to see why living in this apartment would be both exciting and relaxing. The apartment has magic.
The living and entertaining spaces of PH55 are open and loft-like but with a wonderful and subtle division of space so that the owner can create a more separate dining and library experience if desired. The kitchen is open but gently tucked away, making it completely possible to entertain formally. The perfectly situated 34x18 foot terrace sits directly off the western side of the living room. With incredible river and city views, it is an ideal spot to watch the boats go by as the sun sets over the water.
The elegant East and North-facing Master Suite is comprised of a very large bedroom with a sitting area leading onto the second terrace in the apartment. The adjoining bathroom floats above the north and east views of the city.
There are three additional bedroom suites, a yoga/exercise studio or home office - all with astonishingly beautiful views-a powder room, and a full laundry room that complete the layout. There is a multi-zoned 4-pipe, along with discretely ducted central heating and cooling that allows heat and air conditioning year-round.
This beautifully run condominium building features 17,000sf of amenities including a gym, swimming pool, media room, private dining room and catering kitchen, a live-in super, and parking.
