Welcome to 56 Leonard Street, Herzog and de Muerons masterpiece of "houses stacked in the sky". Distinctly modern cantilevers and suspension synthesize and contrast against the demure backdrop of classic cast-iron architecture, designed to inspire and stimulate a sense of wonder and freedom from conformity. Addressing a New Yorkers desire for individuality, no 2 homes are the same, a feat not easily achieved. Nestled amongst the angles and cantilevers will be the immense, elegant, organic, reflective curves of the Anish Kapoor Bean sculpture.
Distinguishing 6W from the others is the ascending, heavenly 24 double height floor to ceiling glass wall, elevating the unique open living space of this great room. Illuminated in natural light, energized by New Yorks vitality, with wall space for significant works of art, considerate, urbane, enlightened design, integrate with the privacy one would expect from a residence of this quality. Two private, exclusive elevators open to your spacious foyer creating a quiet transition from the kinetic pace of the city, welcoming you to your tranquil living space. Just under 3,000sf with 3 bedrooms all with access to your private terraces, 3 full en-suite bathrooms and a powder room. The home is generously elevated and enhanced by 2 beautiful private terraces, one for dining and another for relaxing, 726 square feet in total. 6W has one of the most expansive alfresco refuges within 56 Leonard and offers significant upgrades throughout the home made by the owner. The premium that private outdoor space offers for entertaining, or solitude is more relevant now than ever. With a clear unequivocal view of the aforementioned Anish Kapoor Bean sculpture, it will become an intrinsic part of this homes view and architecture. The bespoke chefs kitchen, intimate enough for a leisurely breakfast, also has the necessary accoutrements, such as two Miele dishwashers, two separate sink areas, a warming oven, and wine fridge, required to host all your friends. The 20 corridor leading to the bedrooms is continuously lined with closets. This must-see-to-be-believed corner primary bedroom, with expansive walk-in closets, an architectural, monolithic pillar engenders sophistication and modern beauty. The luxurious en-suite bath offers radiant heated floors and an elegant free-standing soaking tub. The second and third bedrooms are beautifully considered each with an en-suite bath. A private laundry room with oversized washer and dryer, utility sink and counters, covers the basics. A separate service entrance coalesce so that every element of this home has been thoughtfully contemplated.
From the practicality of a private storage locker (included with this home), an attended temperature-controlled package room, and an on-site valet parking garage, to the full-time doorman, concierge service, resident manager and live-in super, no service is overlooked. The amenities of 56 Leonard combine to form a community within the residences. The 9th and 10th floors house the 17,000sf private, and refined facilities. The luxury of a 75-foot infinity pool, an indoor/outdoor theatre, a library with fireplace, a private dining salon and catering kitchen, the landscaped sundeck with hot tub, steam and sauna facilities, treatment/yoga room, fitness center, playroom, and bike storage complete one of the finest amenity packages in the city.
