WHAT IS JAMES WEARING? Rotating Header Image

Modernist Mansion in the clouds – for sale!

Absolutely one of those rare opportunities to own a home of this caliber in New York City. A singularly spectacular dream penthouse at Nouvel Chelsea with nearly 5000 square feet of light filled living space, 14 foot ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, an awe inspiring 360 degree view of Manhattan, 2 fireplaces, an interior enclosed loggia terrace, all part of a “total design” concept by the brilliant architect Jean Nouvel. The space itself is a work of art in every sense of the word. And if this were not enough, then head to your 5000 square foot rooftop terrace and enjoy a god’s eye view of NYC, the Hudson, and the unobstructed sky above. Whether you seek to create the ultimate retreat in the clouds, or a jaw dropping launching pad for entertainment on the grandest of scales, this property will accommodate one’s wildest dreams.

Contact my friend and Douglas Elliman agent, Philip Tabor (who works with the brilliant Holly Parker team) for more info., and then give me a ring when you are ready to create a legendary interior and garden.

Admiring the exquisite space and imagining the interior possibilities, I’m sporting a dusty pale blue suede biker jacket, pale blue cashmere turtle neck sweater, amethyst sunglasses and black leather wingtip tasseled loafers – all by Gucci, pale gray wool pants by Paul Smith, large silk and wool scarf in a pattern inspired by the artist Sonia Delaunay by Etro and my fragrance is Creed Royal Water.

    I can see many crazy sexy parties happening here. Love the jacket. 😀

  6. Irina says:

    I think many russians can buy it! 🙂 russians are very rich.

    And the place is good…

    Moscow analogs are around 15 000 000$ I guess.( If you buy an apartment in skyscraper with panoramic view to the city center).

    Interesting to learn US prices…

    I’ve been following your blog for some time James… I’m a Brit and share a number of your passions, including the House of Creed, fashion, travel and interior design… so it was interesting that you turned up in PHA of 100 11th Avenue, the condominium I’m happy to call my New York home. It’s a fabulous piece of architecture isn’t it…

    I actually believe I saw you walking along West 19th Street, presumably after visiting 100 11th Avenue…

    Keep up your super uber-blogging… always so wondefully entertaining, interesting and informative.
