Featured Listing: The Penthouse at ARO
Penthouses, by nature, offer the best views of any high-rise. In Penthouse 65A, atop ARO’s no-fee luxury apartment rentals in Manhattan, views of Midtown West, the Hudson River, and Central Park are certainly front and center, acting as a dramatic backdrop to world-class design. Curved glass walls, vaulted ceilings, oak floors, and a floor plan with a natural flow heighten the already sky-high views and make this luxury penthouse a rare find.
This penthouse apartment has not just one terrace, not two, not even three, but four private terraces—a fact that gets a lot of attention. The largest terrace, a long balcony just off the living and dining area, feels like a natural space for communal activities, such as brunching alfresco or watching the sunset over cocktails with friends. A more private terrace juts out from the corner of the master bedroom, offering views in both directions and providing a space for personal moments, like taking in the scale of the glittering city before you retire for the night or doing some morning stretches before you and the city are fully awake. On the upper level, two other terraces open up from the media room and bar, perfect for entertaining guests.
If the terraces are the shining stars of the penthouse, the unsung hero may be its thoughtful and highly livable floor plan. The kitchen, dining area, and living room flow together in an open, airy layout, leaving no corners untouched by the flood of natural light coming in through the windows. Even when you’re preparing an epic charcuterie board at the kitchen island and reaching for a bottle of wine from your private storage, you’re submerged in sky, water, and light. A long interior hall connects the four bedrooms so that each has its own view—and its own bathroom—and there’s no shortage of private space drenched in natural light. Even the grand staircase, which leads to the media room and bar, is wrapped in sweeping views.
These views, of course, include ARO’s neighborhood: Midtown West. The district is a hub of museums, concert halls, lush parks, fine dining, and, of course, shopping. The holidays are quickly approaching, which means people are seeking out the perfect gifts for their loved ones. For some, that means a long trek across the city, and for others, it’s easier to stay home and shop online. But residents of the no-fee NYC apartments at ARO are just a five-minute walk from an exciting new retail experience: the Nordstrom Flagship site on 57th and Broadway. The store, encased in a glittering, reflective glass facade, is seven stories of high-end clothing, shoes, accessories, and home and beauty products, along with a collection of cafes, bars, and restaurants ready to fuel your shopping spree. The best part? They’ll wrap your gifts for you, so you can spend more time celebrating with your loved ones, back at the penthouse.
