“No matter where you look or what time of day, you have an absolutely stunning view,” Brown Harris Stevens broker Frans Preidel declared, standing by the window of the 53rd floor penthouse at One Beacon Court.

Indeed, despite the rather muggy, overcast day we visited the condo Preidel is listing for $37.5 million, the north and western exposures from the floor-to-ceiling glass windows in the living room were quite spectacular.

The nearly 12-foot ceilings made the cityscape all the more impressive, though the hazy day did inhibit one activity. “It’s bit too cloudy today, but we were supposed to take a time lapse video—the weather wasn’t cooperating,” he lamented.

“There’s just an endlessness of views in every directions and incredible privacy,” Preidel added, noting that the building is one of few in the city with its own courtyard. “It’s really good for celebrities, who could just have a car come and whisk them away.”

The palatial master suite includes two full Calacatta marble bathrooms, as well as a dressing room with Abu Black marble countertops. “This wouldn’t be a big enough closet for someone’s primary residence,” Preidel said of one of the two walk-in closets, suggesting the 4,500-square-foot abode will be especially attractive to those looking for a pied-à-terre. We weren’t so sure, as the closet looked more than adequate.

Conversely, two guest bedrooms with en-suite baths and closets are “probably the size of some apartments in the city,” Preidel chuckled.

The eat-in kitchen—with gray marble floors, marble countertops and a seating area by the windows—is “a more modest size,” Preidel said. “They expect people in this price range not to necessarily cook a lot—more catering or having a professional chef or staff member take care of that.” Luckily, a staff bedroom and bath is located just across the hall from the two guest rooms.

The real attraction, however, is the view. “You can see all the airports,” Preidel added, letting us in on one more tidbit for aviation enthusiasts. “You could have seen pretty much the entire flight of Sully—taking off from LaGuardia, the turn over the George Washington Bridge and coming down in Chelsea. All from one position!”
