If a description of 498 West End Ave had to be limited to one word, it would be exceptionalism. With multiple three, four and five bedroom floor plans available, the residences in this building are grandly proportioned. The level of workmanship, artistry and imagination visible throughout this building are thanks to the hard work of CetraRuddy Architecture and the rest of the team behind this project of unrivaled inventiveness.
The history of 498 West End Ave can be traced all the way back to 1910. In 2012, the building was purchased by Samson Management for $52.5 million. Their renovation of the building included restoring its lovely facade, as well as getting the Landmarks Preservation Commission to approve a 4,000 square foot addition.
CetraRuddy Architecture focused on creating what they refer to as a New Design Vernacular. Specifically, they turned 498 West End Ave into a space where light mixes with elegant materials to infuse traditional forms with new life. As soon as you see the building and then enter it, you’re immediately met with elements like a landmarked ornamental marquee with glass canopy and period wrought iron doors that pay homage to the building’s history while also adding a modern dose of luxury.
The team behind 498 West End Ave took the magnificent bones of this exquisite turn-of-the-20th-century building and combined them with the most desirable modern finishes.
White oak floors can be found throughout the kitchen, dining room and living room. Other features of the kitchen include custom chocolate-stained oak cabinetry, Calacatta marble slap backsplash and countertop, and undermount stainless steel sink. The master bathroom is an oasis of honed marble floors and polished marble walls, while secondary bathrooms are available with either a 60-inch tub or walk-in shower by Kohler.
Residents can enjoy a great fitness room that features cardio workstations and an exercise space. There’s also a really fun kid’s activity center that has a wood-peg wall. Additional amenities include a bike room, live-in super and available storage.
