Huys, that Piet Boon-designed Dutch delight at 404 Park Avenue South, has released the first of its secretive penthouses.
A site just for the six uber-luxury residences at the Kroonenberg Group development went up this morning, Curbed reported.
Described as “the pièce de résistance” (hey, that’s not Dutch), the penthouses feature 8-inch-wide oak plank floors, loft-style ceilings with original architectural beams and electronically controlled solar shades. Kitchens have white lacquer cabinetry with Miele appliances, including a full-height wine refrigerator. The bathroom suites feature walk-in closets, as well as stone slab flooring, radiant heated floors and soaking tubs.
The Penthouse A lines have 42-foot-long living rooms, with open layouts, two private loggias and exposures south over 28th Street and east over Park Avenue South.
The “B” penthouses have a more private, traditional setup, with separate dining and family spaces from the kitchen and views of the Empire State Building. Each one has a private south-facing loggia.
The “most impressive residence of Huys,” Penthouse 17B, is sadly already in contract. The four-bedroom, 3,022-square-foot duplex boasts its own private roof terrace with hot tub, fireplace, covered barbecue and custom outdoor kitchen. There’s a grand interior staircase with bespoke metal railings and a dry sauna room in the fourth bathroom, just because.
