Prewar Inspired West 80s Homes: The Chamberlain

  Last modified on August 31st, 2018

In the heart of Landmark West sits The Chamberlain. Located on 87th Street, just off West End Avenue, this luxury condominium was inspired by the grand homes of the 1920s and 30s. The Chamberlain’s stately, pre-war silhouette, masterfully composed by FX Fowle, features wrap-around corner windows, Juliet balconies, and multiple setbacks revealing private terraces. The elegantly detailed lobby, built around a garden courtyard, harkens back to the stately homes that define the neighborhood.

The Chamberlain’s interiors, by world-renowned designer Alexandra Champalimaud, are as gracious as its façade. Classically laid out, the two- to-five-bedroom residences open onto formal entrance galleries leading to expansive living spaces streaming with natural light, distinguished by the oversized, bronze accented windows, ten-foot ceilings, distinctive architectural details, hand laid oak floors, and custom imported hardware.

There are two extraordinary duplex 5-bedroom townhouses, offering the benefits of a private home, with the amenities of a full-service building, and three phenomenal full-floor penthouses with expansive vistas, and river views.

TOWNHOUSE PRIVATE TERRACE: The oversized outdoor living room measures over 750 square feet. The second-level bedrooms offer a garden vista.

The spacious layouts of the custom kitchens were conceived of with culinary intelligence, designed by Smallbone of Devizes, and Champalimaud, for ease of use keeping in mind food preparation, cooking, cleaning, and storage. With room for culinary islands or banquet seating, they include top-of-the-line appliances, and meticulous craftsmanship.

The extravagant master baths are lavishly detailed, with Bianco Dolomiti polished imported marble floors, and Pacific White honed marble walls and tub surrounds, a luxurious retreat.

Surrounding the perimeter of the interior courtyard are two levels of indoor and outdoor recreational and leisure amenities including a library lounge, a multipurpose sports court that can accommodate basketball, soccer, rock climbing, and “movie night”, a children’s playroom, and a state-of-the-art windowed fitness center. Additional amenities include bike storage, private storage available for purchase, hospitality pantry, and cold storage.

Included in the design is a Sabbath elevator, and the option of a kosher kitchen.

The Chamberlain, while maintaining its pre-war inspired aesthetic, offers the best of contemporary design and lifestyle.
