The Carnegie Hill neighborhood near Central Park has long been considered one of Manhattan’s most iconic and desirable locations. One of the only new-construction listings in the neighborhood to come to market in recent years, The Wales is a pre-war building that has been completely stored with modern, luxe interiors and all the latest technology.
“Buyers are looking for an elegant, civilized atmosphere,” says Matt Adell, CEO of Adellco, the developer behind The Wales, which will be move-in ready later this year. “The Wales is going to be that in spades.”
First built in 1901, the building is being restored to its original luster, including the reinstallation of cornices that had once been demolished. “We fell in love with the exterior—the way it presents itself is truly unique,” says Adell. “We know people will love calling the Wales their future home.”
Inside, completely new interiors are custom designed by acclaimed interior designer Cabinet Alberto Pinto. Residence 7A takes advantage of the building’s southwestern exposure, providing sunlight and direct views of Central Park. An entry gallery leads to a great room with coffered ceilings and corner windows. Generously sized rooms abound in this four-bedroom, 4 and a half bath residence. Rooms throughout have white oak flooring, decorative cornices and base moldings. “We’ve updated the building with classic, refined finishes,” says Adell.
In the kitchen, custom cabinets have an art-deco-inspired look and complement a white lacquer island with crystal gray calcite slab countertops and backsplashes. A sub-zero refrigerator, wine storage, Wolf gas range, oven and speed oven and Cove dishwasher are top-of-the line for the home chef.
The primary bedroom has an oversized walk-in closet and generous bathroom with Bianco Carrera and Grigio Nicola marble geometric tile flooring. Secondary bedrooms, one of which has direct terrace access, feature en-suite bathrooms and marble countertops, flooring and wall tiles.
Building amenities provide even further luxury—from an oak-paneled fitness center with Peloton and Hydrow equipment to the pet spa with grooming station. Each residence has its own zoned heating and cooling system, washer/dryer and stainless steel utility sink.
“The pre-war presentation with the completely new interior combined with elegant, refined design from Cabinet Alberto Pinto is very appealing,” says Adell. “No one else is doing this combination of old and new with an esteemed Parisian firm like Alberto Pinto. It’s very much what this market wants.”
