This apartment has the potential to become a nifty buyer brand who likes the old world.
Brand designer Owen Coleman, whose decades of work have influenced Nespresso, Tylenol, Craft and more, has also turned to shaping the look of his home in New York City. Listed $ 3.99 million.
Not only was the 2,584-square-foot hideout completely refurbished, but the photos on the list show a dazzling pile of antiques. If the new owner has the same Old World hobbies, some of them can be included in the sale.
Adjacent to the bar in the living room, two 18th-century French Gesso mirrors stand floor-to-ceiling. Nearby, two black carved rosewood columns separate the living and dining areas. It dates back to the 1800s when British Army generals used them in field tents to decorate formal meetings. The fireplace in the master bedroom has a mantle made of delicate ancient stone, in addition to 15th century forged ironwork.
If these unique things don’t fit the new owner’s fantasies, Coleman simply asks them to be removed — and brings them with him.
It took more than a year and a half for Coleman to renovate the three-bedroom East Harlem Perch on 1485 Fifth Avenue, which has a spacious terrace on the 27th floor. But filling it with drool-worthy decorations has been around for years. He procured much of his work not only from the Park Avenue Al Molly Winter Show, but also during his world trip.
The bones of the corner apartment also look like an old world, incorporating features such as herringbone floors, bespoke white woodworking products, bespoke European white wooden cabinets, and high ceilings.
Additional benefits inside include sunrise and sunset views, floor-to-ceiling windows, a kitchen with Miele cappuccino machines and Carrera marble counters, and a transferred parking space.
Building facilities include a gym, children’s playroom, 55-foot indoor heated lap pool, and resident lounge with catering kitchen.
Sotheby’s International Realty’s Michelle Bourgeois and Gina Coolenkamp — East Side Manhattan FTC — are on the list.
