This pre-war penthouse, built in 1924, was converted by renowned London-based architect John Pawson. With 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, the apartment combines luxury with Pawson’s purist, minimal design aesthetic to create an understated opulence.

The 4,235 square foot apartment occupies two full floors and is located in Manhattan’s coveted Gramercy Park, the only private park in New York City. The lower 17th floor includes an entry gallery leading to a great room, a library with a wood burning fireplace, and a formal dining room––all with southern exposure and magnificent Gramercy Park views. This floor also has a media room, two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a powder room, and a gourmet eat-in kitchen with northern views of the Chrysler Building. A winding staircase takes you to the top-floor master bedroom suite, a home office, and two private terraces.

This home was originally listed for $18.9 million in 2012 and dropped 11% a month later to $16.9 million; it is now on the market for the bargain price of $14.9 million. 50 Gramercy Park N New York, New York is listed by Tim Cass with the Corcoran Group.
