Janet Jackson’s home on Manhattan’s West Side has two things every New Yorker wishes for: great views and a corner location in the building, which assures a great deal of natural light. Now it is for sale, offered with an asking price of $8.995 million.
This three bedroom, three and one-half bath home measures 2,094 square feet. It is located in a superb building: One Central Park West, an elegant residential structure built in 1996 in a very desirable West side location. Building amenities include a sophisticated lobby, full-time doorman and concierge services, a state-of-the-art gym, swimming pool, luxurious spa, housekeeping, valet, parking, a business center and 24-hour room service from Jean-Georges.
The apartment, which is on the 34th floor, is entered through a gallery that leads into a large open living and dining room. The kitchen, which, unlike many New York City kitchens, has a window, is discretely positioned with two entrances, making it an ideal configuration for both sophisticated living and entertaining. A conveniently located powder room completes the more public rooms.
The primary bedroom suite is a dreamy space tucked away at the end of the gallery. It features multiple generous closets and a luxurious marble spa bath. From this private oasis, a soaking homeowner can enjoy views of the sun rising over Central Park, as well as the sparkle of the city lights after dark.
The second and third bedrooms also have ensuite baths, and are generously proportioned. One bedroom is furnished as a library, and features a wall of handsome custom millwork. It can, of course, function as a bedroom. The third bedroom is outfitted as the perfect guest room.
Throughout the apartment are floor to ceiling windows framing the panoramic and dramatic views from every room. 10-foot ceilings, beautifully carved wood doors, central air conditioning, a security system, wood floors, excellent storage and a collection of versatile spaces make this a home that’s far above the usual New York City offering, both literally and figuratively.
Perhaps the most compelling aspect of this luxurious residence is its location high above Central Park. The views of the park, surrounded by Manhattan’s iconic skyline, are constantly changing and always stirring.
