Timeless elegance beckons from the 12th floor of the Hampshire House at 150 Central Park South, a storied New York residence with an aura of Deco glamour. One could hardly imagine a more central yet serene location in the heart of Manhattan—steps from Fifth Avenue and Columbus Circle as well as Central Park, with countless world-class shopping, dining, and leisure opportunities.
Offering majestic park views and three sunlit exposures, Apartment 1204–1206 combines three prewar apartments into a well-proportioned Classic 7. The home’s great bones provide for a comfortable 3BR or a glorious 2BR + study/den, plus 3 full baths, an incredible amount of storage, and a private south-facing balcony.
The separate dining and living rooms are generously scaled at approximately 24 x 15 feet each. These bright rooms feel extra expansive because the floor drops two steps down, resulting in taller ceiling heights. A glass wall at the south end of the living room gives onto a semicircular balcony that spans over 9 feet wide. Art gallery track lighting provides ultimate flexibility, while luscious herringbone parquet flooring imparts a warm honeyed hue throughout the home’s interiors.
The modern kitchen with solid wood cabinetry and Viking range is supplemented by a wet bar/kitchenette near the living room—perfect for entertaining. Both the kitchen and wet bar can be closed off or left open to meet the needs of the moment.
Quiet reigns in the home’s spacious private areas. The primary suite, occupying the southwest corner, includes a sunny, sprawling bedroom and a windowed bathroom with dual sinks, a bidet, and a walk-in shower. The second bedroom, impressively large at 250 square feet, has a full bath en-suite, including an extra-wide soaking tub/shower and a bidet. The third full bathroom is defined by beautiful white-and-grey marble.
The apartment’s secret asset is the ample den/study at the northwest corner. Currently configured as a home office with built-in desk and shelving, this surprisingly large, deliciously soothing space could also be converted to a third bedroom. Bathed in gentle northern light, it directly overlooks the greatest park in the world.
On the practical side, the home provides abundant storage capacity, including a dozen closets and built-ins, plus additional storage in the laundry room. Hampshire House building amenities include a health club, concierge, full-time doorman, bicycle storage, and other modern conveniences. The building’s iconic, steeply pitched copper roof is visible from across the park—skyline candy for most people, but for the lucky few, a spectacular emblem of home.
