Some of Manhattan’s most beautiful apartments are in restored buildings. Tamarkin Co. has maintained the spirit of 555 West End Avenue’s unique history and architectural pedigree, transforming it into a condominium building. The restored Beaux-Arts architectural gem was originally a private school built in 1908 and designed in English Collegiate Gothic style by William A. Boring.
Inside the new structure, there are 13 three- to five-bedroom residences that bring together the best elements of pre-war co-ops, condominiums, urban lofts, and townhouses. Located one block from Riverside Park at 87th Street, and surrounded by the grand apartment houses of West End Avenue, 555 West End Avenue’s carved stone façade elements and limestone window bays fit in seamlessly.
The building has an attended lobby entrance, refrigerated storage, a bicycle room, and stroller valet. Every residence has its own private storage room. The gym features state-of-the-art equipment in a daylit space and a recreation room has a wet bar with stools, a pool table, dartboard, comfortable lounge chairs, and a large-screen TV.
Residences include details such as custom Christopher Peacock cabinetry in the kitchen, hand-selected Calacatta gold marble slabs in the bathrooms, and a private elevator landing.
A stunning five-bedroom residence has been spectacularly furnished by designer Charlie Ferrer of FERRER, who selected Italian vintage pieces, custom artwork, mid-century chandeliers and added details like a hand-painted Art Deco-esque ceiling mural to evoke the history of the building.
Units available range from a four-bedroom unit for $7.9 million to the stunning Solarium Penthouse which is listed for $18 million. For more details, visit https://555westendave.com/building/.
