As you all know by now, apartment stalking is one of my biggest interests. ESNY.com always has something new and beautiful to drool over so I visit quite frequently. I've seen this NY Penthouse on there but never bothered to click because it seemed..well...a little too perfect and unattainable which for some reason makes me loose interest. But today I finally thought "Oh well, let's take a look at what money can do then.." and oh my goodness this is just fabulous! Of course, it comes with a private pool on the roof terrass, private elevator and doorman and a starting price of $31.5 million so it should be fabulous but let's not let that get in the way of enjoying this little tour. And although this particular address is absolutely unattainable for most of us I think there are actually some really good inspiration in here that we can bring with us to our own humble abodes.
Let's take a look, shall we?
Here's another view of the living room with the fireplace. The amazing ceiling height allow for two rows of windows, making this possibly the best naturally lit apartment in NY? The white walls does right by all the light and is the perfect backdrop for the dark and distinct details on windows, art and furniture. I'm not sure that fireplace actually uses firewood, but either way I think those logs add a healthy portion of nature in..a good reminder in a home like this, in a town like this :-)
Here is the dining area, and you can see many of the 28 (!) windows from here.
The kitchen is top notch and has room for a lot of chefs :-) As someone who loves cooking I am very jealous of this kitchen, I really am! Just turn around and enjoy the view of the buzzing city while you wait for the water to boil.
The long kitchen island has plenty of room for guests to sit and chat while you cook, or just for you to enjoy your breakfast. I like the colors they have used here, with the grey marble and the slightly warmer wood in the cabinets. With the stainless steel appliances it would have easily become a cold atmosphere so the dark brown gives it a warm foundation.
The apartment has 5 bedrooms.
Each bedroom has it's own bathroom with windows. This is probably a little too bare for my taste..I'm itching to hang some earthy toned towels in here or maybe a big green plant?
One floor up we will find the master bedroom. But first, let's acknowledge the two marble balls in the hallway. Crazy? Yeah..maybe. But it also works. Perhaps I shouldn't be so afraid of using the walkways in my house..asking someone to take a step to the side is perhaps not as terrible as I make it out to be?
Stairs let through every ray of light and obscures the view minimally.
The master bedroom upstairs has a great view, and a private loggia.
The master bath is a study in simplistic luxury, as we would expect. I miss some greens and nature in here..but then again I also miss those $31.5 million :-)

What do you say? Would you move in?
