  BATHING BEAUTY

This beauty at Trump International Hotel & Tower on Central Park West amounts to an 11-room “mansion” with six rooms overlooking the park. It has recently received a $20-million museum-quality renovation at the hands of renowned interior designer Hans Muller and his team of European craftsmen. Both the enormous living room and formal dining room have antique Versailles floors (as does the butler’s pantry), and the library is done in mahogany from top to bottom. There’s a palatial guest apartment as well as two wine cellars. Among the numerous extraordinary bathrooms, highlighted by the his-and-hers in the master suite, the most lavish of all is “hers”: it’s the size of a studio apartment and its renovation cost a cool million—not so shocking when you consider that it’s done up in one of the world’s most coveted gemstones, deep-blue lapis lazuli, offset with onyx and Giallo di Siena marble.
$33 million.

THEREIN LIES THE TUB

  HIGH-WATER MARK

No wonder the Gwathmey Siegel-designed Astor Place on Lafayette Street is practically sold out! Every single fixture and finish in these residences has been meticulously chosen. Among each home’s assortment of master, secondary and guest baths, the spa-like masters are standouts for their six-foot Kohler soaking tubs with faucets exclusively designed by Gwathmey Siegel for Watermark. The oversized stall showers feature frameless floor-to-ceiling glass. Statuary White marble adorns the shower stall and tub-surround and finishes off tub decks and enclosures. You’ll also find custom-ebonized cherry wood cabinetry edged with aluminum, mirrors with linear incandescent lighting, and Robern recessed medicine cabinets. There are two separate vanity areas—each with a sink carved of Absolute Black granite in a honed finish. What’s left is priced from $2.95 million to $12 million.
