Step into the extraordinary world of 12A at 322 East 57th, where history and modern luxury intertwine seamlessly. This impeccable 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom duplex, originally envisioned by renowned architect Joseph Urban and once inhabited by Senator Jacob Javits and his wife Marion, has been transformed into a true masterpiece. In its current incarnation, 12A epitomizes the pinnacle of New York grandeur, offering a lifestyle of supreme elegance and sophistication.

Upon arrival via your private elevator vestibule, you are greeted by a grand foyer boasting an elegantly curved staircase and a discreetly tucked-away built-in wet bar. The oversized great room captivates with its soaring 18-foot ceilings, original wood-burning fireplace with a stone mantle, and double-height restored wrought-iron casement windows that flood the space with natural light. Vintage restored wide plank hardwood floors add to the ambiance, creating an ideal backdrop for showcasing a world-class art collection. Reflecting infinite space and light, two circular infinity mirrors enhance the awe-inspiring atmosphere.

Continuing the journey, discover the former "cigar room" of Senator Javits, now a sophisticated media room enveloped in lush gray tones. Relax on stylish velvet banquettes while enjoying the southern sunlight streaming through the oversized picture window. Nearby, a custom-built office offers a secluded workspace with ample storage.

Ascend the striking staircase adorned with the original 1930s translucent Bakelite and brass banister to the upper level, where a dramatic bird's eye view of the living space awaits, enclosed by the original Art Deco balustrade. Entertain in the generously sized dining area, perfectly suited for hosting gatherings of any size.

The windowed eat-in kitchen, conveniently adjacent to the dining area, features tailored jet black cabinetry, luxurious 4-inch slabs of honed Olympia white marble, and top-of-the-line appliances, including an integrated Subzero and induction stove. Open shelves elegantly display stemware, adding a touch of sophistication.

A discreet hallway leads to the private bedroom wing, boasting ample art walls, subtle lighting, and cleverly placed niches for displaying books and objet d'art. The glamorous "Nan Goldin Bathroom," adorned with Bisazza mosaic tile and high-gloss Hague blue, doubles as a guest bath and powder room.

Tucked away as a private sanctuary, the spacious bright corner primary suite boasts extensive closets worthy of elite fashion collections. A smartly recessed projector with a retractable screen allows for movie viewing from the comfort of bed. The windowed primary bath exudes luxury with distinctive hand-selected Breccia Carpial marble slabs, a large free-standing oval tub, glass shower, and double vanity in Prussian blue. Three generously proportioned bedrooms with custom millwork and a beautifully appointed shared windowed bath inspired by the classic baths of Claridges Hotel in London complete the upper level.

This exceptional residence also features new central AC throughout, a water filtration system, and a separate laundry room with a utility sink. A conveniently located service entrance provides easy access for staff to assist with all service needs.
