Exceptionally rare is the opportunity to purchase a full-floor residence in the iconic and supremely elegant Carlyle hotel—a discreet haunt for the world’s most discerning individuals. It has historically and continues to attract regular guests and residents such as Frank Sinatra, the Kennedys, European royalty (home to William and Kate when in town), titans of industry, Hollywood’s top brass and talent, and the cream of the high-fashion crop.
High above the most coveted enclave of Manhattan’s Upper East Side—a block from Central Park and steps from the best shopping in the world—with unobstructed views in all four directions, it’s easy to understand the sky-high demand and rock-bottom turnover rate.
Apartment 2601-2610 in the tower of the building, constructed in the late-1920s in the Art Deco style, has been assiduously reimagined by acclaimed designer William Sofield and is now on the market for $19,750,000. Each light-filled room in the 4-bedroom, 4.5-bath unit boasts views of the park and the surrounding cityscape.
“The apartment is quite spectacular,” says listing agent Deborah Grubman, a Corcoran associate real estate broker. “It has all the services of the iconic Carlyle Hotel available. It is truly one of a kind.”
The exhaustive list of those services includes twice daily maid service; in-home catering from the Carlyle’s three renowned dining establishments—Café Carlyle, Bemelmans Bar, the Carlyle Restaurant—valet parking; Secret Service-level security; and 24-hour concierge.
