Each room offers incredible views with seamless access to the enormous private terrace that wraps entirely around the fourth floor. Just beyond the grand staircase is a large dining space defined by an iconic Gala chandelier by Rich Brilliant Willing, with adjacent wet bar echoing the luxury finishes of the kitchen. The elegantly minimalist kitchen features Wolf double wall ovens, a Gaggenau five-burner gas cooktop, Wolf microwave drawer and Sub-Zero refrigerator integrated into the contemporary white cabinetry. The kitchen and breakfast area open entirely to the waterfront terrace through a dramatic full-height accordion glass wall. Just beyond the primary dining area is a spacious great room framed on two sides by glass walls that expand the views and sense of scale. In addition to the living space and two en-suite bedrooms on the fourth floor, there is a temperature-controlled wine room, powder bath, service elevator through private vestibule, and catering prep area with oven and dishwasher.
