The Penthouse at One Hundred East Fifty-Third01

The ultimate NYC Penthouses

Manhattan’s skyline is changing, and luxurious penthouses are ideal for soaking up the evolving views. Sitting in some of the city’s most notable new towers—from the waterside Hudson Yards development and revived South Street Seaport to skyscrapers stretching high above the iconic Museum of Modern Art—these ultimate New York City penthouses are notable for more than their sky-high settings, over-the-top amenities, extravagant design, and above all, jaw-dropping price tags.

Penthouse

The PH95 at 432 Park Avenue can be purchased for $82 Million. Situated on the 95th floor of architect Rafael Viñoly’s giant Midtown tower—currently the tallest residential structure in the Western Hemisphere—the full-floor penthouse occupies a total of 8,255 square feet. It reveals sweeping 360-degree views of the city and has six bedrooms, and seven baths.

It’s packed with state-of-the-art amenities, from wine refrigerators and Miele appliances to Toto toilets and radiant heated flooring. Top-shelf materials like marble, solid oak, white lacquer, and polished chrome give it a unique luxurious feel. The building offers a 24-hour doorman, a five-star concierge, a restaurant overseen by the Michelin-star chef Shaun Hergatt, and an onsite pool.

The Penthouse at One Hundred East Fifty-Third comes at the more modest price of $65 Million. Arranged over two floors, it stretches across 6,760-square-feet and features four bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, and a great room with floor-to-ceiling windows.

Kavalan’s Five New Single Malts

Kavalan’s Five New Single Malts

The Taiwanese distiller Kavalan introduced its first single malt to market fewer than 10 years ago, but that was enough time to establish itself as one of the world’s leading producers of fine whisky. Emerging as an unlikely player on the market for exquisite spirits, the climate of Taiwan has even managed to accelerate the whiskey’s maturation. This has given Kavalan a real shot at competing with renowned whiskey manufacturers in Scotland, America and Japan.

In April, wealthy buyers will be able to sneak a taste of Kavalan’s latest line of sherry and port cask-aged whiskies. The collection includes such exclusive offerings like the Kavalan Amontillado Sherry Cask Single Malt Whisky – matured with a cap of flor, imbuing it with a fresh baked bread flavor that is evident in the whisky. Whiskey aficionados who enjoy their beverage with a zesty citrus flavour will enjoy the Kavalan Manzanilla Sherry Cask Single Malt Whisky with its medley of dried fruit. Kavalan Moscatel Sherry Cask Single Malt Whisky is a sublime treat to the palate thanks to its long, luxuriant and creamy texture, where dates, dark chocolate cake and raspberry jam, honey and toasted nuts come together in a symphony of flavours. The first three varieties of the collection have an asking price of $599 per bottle while the Kavalan PX Sherry Cask Single Malt Whisky will retail for $699. Aged in PX casks, it boasts a subtle lemongrass and toffee nuance for an invigorating sensation on the palate. Finally, there is the Kavalan Port Cask Single Malt Whisky – matured in Portuguese barriques that once held high-alcohol fortified wine. The dense fruit-forward whisky costs $299 per bottle and presents a robust combination of brown sugar and plums, with a hint of smoke.

Chopard

Baselworld’s Jewelry Highlights

Baselworld is the most anticipated annual exhibition dedicated to watches and jewelry. Held in the Swiss city of Basel, it is the moment international Maisons use to debut their new collections and steal the spotlight with creative and exuberant designs. The 2017 edition of the exhibition includes daring new pieces from Eberhard & Co., Chopard and Faidee.

In keeping with spring, Chopard introduced its Green Carpet collection featuring high jewelry with responsibly mined Gemfield’s emeralds. Its For You watch collection embodies the definition of discreet luxury, offering fine and ready-to-wear pieces. Inspired by the delicate beauty of the cherry blossom, the two timepieces of the collection present delicate pear-shaped diamonds or emeralds around a brilliant-cut pistil.

Fourth-generation jeweler Faidee known as a source for some of the world’s rarest Burmese rubies, unveiled the Grand Phoenix necklace comprised of 24 unheated Burmese Pigeon’s Blood rubies—the most coveted variety of rubies. Weighing nearly 80 carats, it is valued at about $35 million, and has more than 100 carats of D color grade diamonds. (faidee.com)

The Grand Phoenix-PNG

Two new models celebrate Eberhard & Co’s 130th anniversary with the Chrono 4 (patented – registered design). This is the first and only chronograph in the history of watchmaking with four aligned counters, a veritable icon of the brand today.

Both watches feature a new 42 mm diameter case that is framed by a bezel with circular satin finish; the crown, personalised with the number “130”. Three dial variants are available.

Villa Sola Cabiati

Lake Como’s $10,000-Per-Night Villa Sola Cabiati

Lake Como has long provided a top spot for relaxation and privacy with the gorgeous villas and gardens that front the lake. And travellers have always spent hefty sums to enjoy its legendary beauty and its natural scenery.

Now, a centuries-old architectural wonder – Villa Sola Cabiati that was once the summer home of Milan’s Duke Gabrio Serbelloni, is now among the most breathtaking properties.

Villa Sola Cabiati05

With its frescoed walls, lush gardens, and museum-quality furnishings – it is now open to the public as the five-star Grand Hotel Tremezzo. Only a few select lucky guests will gain access to the historic villa as it’s not even bookable on the hotel’s website. “It’s about providing something exclusive to our guests, in a style that’s very different from the hotel—and creating truly tailor-made experiences there,” Tremezzo’s CEO and owner, Valentina De Santis says.

Villa Sola Cabiati04

Tremezzo’s guests can enjoy Villa Sola Cabiati in three ways. Book guided tours of the villa’s two museum floors, both of which were previously closed, enjoy a range of more immersive activities on the 10-acre baroque estate, including yoga and romantic dinners in the Tuscan garden.

Villa Sola Cabiati02

The ultimate visit, however, includes the opportunity to stay the night, with parties of up to 12 making use of the villa’s historic furnishings and artwork. Priced from about $10,000 per night, the villa can only be rented in its entirety for complete privacy and comfort.

Penthouse with 360-Degree Views 04

A $42 Million Penthouse with 360-Degree Views of San Francisco

San Francisco has always been a prime target for tycoons and millionaires looking for a real estate deal of a lifetime, and the latest offer on the market proves it. A stunning penthouse valued at $42 million is for sale in one of the city’s most prestigious office and residential towers. Developed by Jay Paul Company with interiors designed by Orlando Diaz-Azcuy, the architectural gem is located at 181 Fremont and will be completed early next year.

Penthouse with 360-Degree Views 01

A total of 6,941-square-metres span across the entire top floor of the 70-storey tower, revealing stunning views of San Francisco’s skyline and The Golden Gate Bridge. Five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and two powder rooms provide plenty of space for high-end urban living. Luxury fixtures and fittings include hardwood floors, Italian marble, and bespoke pieces created by Diaz-Azcuy.

Penthouse with 360-Degree Views 02

A private elevator opens to the lobby and foyer, which serves as the entrance to the secluded, sky-high space. Gold sconces elevate the entryway, and a custom brass handle created by Série Rare accentuates a Paldao wood door imported from New Guinea. Equipped with a gourmet kitchen that is ideal for private dining as well as cooking, there is a Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, two dishwashers, double ovens, and a sizable kitchen island. Valcucine glass cabinets crafted in Italy complement the chic aesthetic. A secondary service kitchen provides an ideal setting for entertaining guests. The formal dining room conveniently links to a wet bar for after-dinner drinks.

Penthouse with 360-Degree Views 03

The family room boasts a translucent fireplace made from Italian marble, a spectacular chandelier designed by Diaz-Azcuy, and floor-to-ceiling windows. The glass-walled master suite has two en-suite bathrooms, walk-in closets, a study, and gorgeous views of San Francisco. Each of the bedrooms are outfitted with 10-foot ceilings and adjacent en-suites bathrooms with freestanding soaking tubs.

Residents enjoy private access to the tower’s 52nd-story Sky Lounge floor, which includes a fitness center with a yoga room, library, a bar, a catering kitchen, a conference room, and a wraparound observation terrace.

Ultimate Astronomic Watch01

Vacheron Constantin’s debuts the Ultimate Astronomic Watch

Vacheron Constantin has long set the standard for watches out of this world, but the brand’s ultimate astronomical super-complication is a piece that will leave no one indifferent to its class. The one-of-a-kind wristwatch Les Cabinotiers Celestia Astro­nomical Grand Complication 3600 is a double-sided mechanical wonder. Its price tag is also astronomical and comes at about $1 million, but it is justified.

Ultimate Astronomic Watch03

This is a piece of multiple qualities aside from the striking number of its complications, which the company has tallied at 23. They are also brilliantly themed and organized. The complications fall into three groups: civil (conventional) time and calendar functions, solar time, and sidereal time. As both solar and sidereal time vary slightly from civil time, each group of complications is driven by its own corrected gear train radiating from the movement’s central wheel for greater accuracy. The solar gear train drives functions includes a marching equation of time, sunrise and sunset times, length of day, and seasonal indications. These are all represented on the front dial with civil-time functions such as the perpetual calendar, moon phase, and an interesting tide indicator with a depiction of the sun, Earth, and lunar orbital positions.

Ultimate Astronomic Watch02

On the back of the astronomical super-complication are such celestial functions as a star chart composed of two rotating sapphire disks with a starry sky over the sandblast-finish movement plates. The watch’s remarkable compactness is even more noteworthy than its multiplicity of functions. At 45 mm in diameter and just 13.6 mm thick, the timepiece is the same size as most sports watches—a reality made possible through carefully designed components, some of which created with advanced photolithography fabrication techniques. However, this does not take away from the ease of reading the dial, which is a truly striking combination and one difficult to achieve.

Chelsea Hotel Art01

Chelsea Hotel Manager Stanley Bard’s Art Collection Goes to Auction

Stanley Bard, the longtime part-owner and manager of Manhattan’s legendary Chelsea Hotel, has made a name for being a connoisseur of fine art. Throughout his career he has helped many struggling artists—among them Leonard Cohen, Andy Warhol, and Jasper Johns—to live and work in his hotel for little compensation. As a result, he managed to amass one of the most striking collections that capture the creative spirit of the 21st century.

Chelsea Hotel Art02

Tom Wesselmann’s “Study for Blue Nude”

Following his recent passing, the exclusive collection, which features works from Tom Wesselman, Karel Appel, and Christo will hit the auction block in May. Many of the pieces speak not only to the history of the now-closed Chelsea Hotel, but to a bygone era of one of New York’s most culturally-rich periods. Most pieces are a testament to Bard’s influence on the artists as with Tom Wesselmann’s Face #1, for instance, featuring the note “For Stanley—With Affection—Tom Wesselmann” on its back. The piece is expected to fetch up to $800,000. Handled by Freeman’s, the auction will handle works from some of the greatest artists of this century.

Tom Wesselmann’s “Face #1” 

Slots for the auction will become available at the beginning of May and buyers better hurry up if they want to snap iconic pieces like Philip Taaffe “Untitled”, Larry Rivers “Art and the Artist Portrait and Painting of Arshile Gorky and Christo’s “The Mastaba of Abu Dhabi” – valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The Manhattan Airship

Two New Outstanding Business-Jet Interiors from Embraer

Private aviation continues to undergo exciting upgrades thanks to Embraer’s designers. Business travellers can now enjoy two new Art Deco–inspired interiors for the flagship Lineage 1000E business jet: the Manhattan Airship and the Hollywood Airship. For these projects Embraer collaborated with designer Eddie Sotto, as it did on the Skyacht One and Skyranch One cabins.

The Manhattan Airship02

The Manhattan Airship boasts elegant dark wood flooring and panelling, a metallic mural of the circa-1930s New York City skyline, and the Cloud Club—a spacious lounge area with a bar with retractable stools, vintage sconces, and a mohair-and-lambskin divan under a city-loft-style window.

The Manhattan Airship03

The second option is the Hollywood Airship interior with lighter and warmer tones, and chrome and marble accents throughout.

The Hollywood Airship01

Leather accents on the walls and headliners depict Howard Hughes’ Spruce Goose, the Sunset Tower, and vintage cars. Each design sports expansive stylistic windows that allow plenty of light into the cabin and offer panoramic views of what’s outside the aircraft.

The Hollywood Airship03

These interiors are a step up of traditional business-jet interior design, which is typically dominated by simplicity and functionality. Conveying the Art Deco style of the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building with a mosaic of the Manhattan skyline, is a first for this type of high-concept design.
