The Benson is an architectural and design masterpiece located on Madison Avenue. A throwback to an era where craftsmanship and attention to detail mattered. Designed from the ground up as a boutique legacy building by Peter Pennoyer Architects this will be a timeless addition to the Upper East Side. The exterior, sculpted from Indiana limestone with artisan crafted wrought iron doors and balconies, is at once stately as it has an air of romance.

Apartment 11 is a stunning full floor comprising 4193 sqft with 5 bedrooms 5 full baths and a powder room. Upon entering the great room you are immediately transported to a bygone era overlooking Madison avenue with vignettes of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park treetops. A fireplace crackles while the southern and western sunlight plays shadow games through the mullioned windows on the chevron white oak floors. A living area meant for entertaining with just shy of 11 foot ceilings and views over Madison Avenue. The library is separated on the southern end and could easily be opened up to make an even more grand living area or serve as a sixth bedroom or office. On the north end you find the formal dining room with a set of pocket doors leading to the kitchen which is certainly a chefs dream. Hand painted Christopher Peacock cabinets with solid walnut interiors and a honed Calacatta Gold topped center island. State of the art appliances from Miele and Sub Zero make cooking a breeze whether for a quick bite from the speed oven, a sous vide in the steam oven or a nice roast in the professional gas range with vented glass fluted hood. Two dishwashers, extra wide refrigerator/freezer and a full cabinet height wine fridge round out the kitchen. A separate door leads to the private service hallway with multiple elevator entry options and private refuse room. Bookended by a separate quarter with full bathroom and laundry room with two sets of vented full sized LG washer/dryers. All secondary bathrooms throughout have bespoke Waterworks fixtures, marble chevron floors and custom marble topped vanities.

Back across the foyer with barrel vaulted ceiling one will find an exquisite powder room with Bleu De Savoie floors and a Nero Marquina hand-carved custom vanity. Three secondary bedrooms with open eastern views line the hallway, two with en suite bathroom and the other with a shared bathroom in the hall. A separately enclosed wing leads to the primary suite with a gorgeous west facing bay window with views down to the shiny towers of 57th street. A moment of tranquility can be found in the windowed bathroom with freestanding soaking tub, dual vanity with Robern medicine cabinets, heated chevron marble floors, separate Toto toilet. Rounded out by a custom lit walk in rainshower with room for 2 and marble bench seating. Two walk in closets are ready for a custom fit-out.

For a boutique 14 unit building, the Benson provides the services and amenities of a 5 star hotel. You are immediately greeted by the 24 hour door staff and have your own concierge at your disposal for any needs. Get your game on in the basketball court. Watch the latest movies or Superbowl in your own private cinema by Achille Saville with its own popcorn machine. Wile away the hours in the spa with Sauna and Steam Room after a hard work out in the fitness center. Enjoy an afternoon tea in the library and garden or a cocktail overlooking the city on the rooftop Park Bar with gas firepit. Let the kids be inspired in the kids atelier playroom. Cold storage for food deliveries. Hose down your pet in the pet spa or store your bike after a nice ride around Central Park, as it's only a short block away. As is the Met and copious amounts of phenomenal restaurants, cafes and stores. Here, the world is your oyster.
