Essie Weingarten, Founder of Essie Nail Polish, Lists Park Avenue Penthouse
High in Manhattan’s 799 Park Avenue address, a penthouse owned by Essie nail polish founder, Essie Weingarten, just hit the market. The 5,200 square feet of interiors have glorious windows throughout, perfectly capturing panoramic city views, but its style is also noteworthy. Although an A-Z color range like Essie’s is hard to match in the home, renowned modernist designer Russell Groves buffed and polished (aka designed and renovated) the duplex penthouse with clean lines, ample dark wood, and light contrasts. Manicured and waiting for a buyer, it’s now asking $12.5 million on the Upper East Side.
The home’s open floor plan provides an easy flow for entertaining, from the double-living room to the dining room to the opulent media lounge. Four terraces, adding up to 700 square feet, beautifully bring the outdoors in. However, the chef’s kitchen featuring custom Boffi cabinetry and top-grade appliances may truly seal the deal for the buyer who loves to cook and host.
Throughout the two levels, there are 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, and it’s the private upper floor that really nails it all. Accessed via a sleek walnut staircase, it offers something coveted these days: A chic and spacious home office. It’s wrapped in bamboo wood, boasts its own terrace, and has a wet bar, so working from home never looked so good. The sophisticated primary suite sits nearby as well holding another terrace to unwind upon when your mind’s off work.
Ready for the final coat? I. Dolly Lenz, Adam Vanderbrook, and Jennifer Lenz of Dolly Lenz Real Estate hold this new UES listing, first reported to be for sale by the NY Post.
