The home's rear terrace offers a front row view of the New York City skyline. Adjoining the estate, the 276-acre Sherman Hoffman Wildlife Sanctuary provides Tall Oaks a privileged measure of privacy and seclusion.
The formal dining room is all distinguished elegance with subtly striped walls, a silvery ceiling and a gorgeous mauve oriental rug. This room, as do all the rooms in the penthouse, offers views out to the roof deck and New York's skyline.
A penthouse in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City features an 860-square-foot wraparound terrace. The warm natural tones of the furnishings contrast nicely with the abstract neutral architectural palette while a bright blue table centers this lounge area and takes full advantage of skyline views.
In a New York City apartment with a spectacular view of the city skyline, designer Amy Lau brought in “gorgeous, sweeping curves and natural materials” in the design of the built-in wet bar to offset the linear visuals. “Organic shapes and materials strikes the perfect balance with the cityscape,” she says.
Once a raw, industrial space, designers brought in glitzy design details to create a unique residential space. First, they raised the ceilings from eight foot to nearly eleven, creating a more dramatic space. Then, they installed a luxurious black and white tile floor and complimentary copper pendant lights that became the focal point of the space. Finally, they brought in rich, leather furniture and installed a glamorous wet bar to the space.
Favorite feature: The lighting, which is a custom installation of multiple pendants sourced on Ebay, is definitely what catches most people's eye —it’s the conversation starter that gets all the compliments. That design element set against the truly amazing view of the Long Island Sound and the New York City skyline make for a stunning visual. The custom bar is also exceptional with its luxurious materials, from the antique mirror in the back to the exotic wood cabinetry and beautiful Saint Laurent marble on the counter.
