A master of minimalism, Axel Vervoordt is known for conjuring spare-but-soulful spaces for A-listers such as Sting, Robert De Niro, and former power couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. (He also elegantly overhauled a 17th-century military barracks near Bruges for a real estate entrepreneur, and the glowing results were featured in Galerie.) Now, one of the Belgian designer’s most impressive creations has hit the market in New York for just under $15 million.

Perched on the 26th floor of the blockbuster Robert A.M. Stern building 15 Central Park West, this 2,400-square-foot aerie features unique brass moldings and white-oak flooring throughout, as well as Juliet balconies overlooking the famed Manhattan green space. In a James Bond-esque twist, the library and living room are linked by a secret swing door disguised as a built-in wooden shelving unit. Equally streamlined, the revamped kitchen comes equipped with black Corian countertops plus Sub-Zero, Bosch, and Thermador appliances.

The Upper West Side residence also features a pair of spacious bedrooms, each with en-suite baths—one sheathed in Calacatta marble and the other in limestone. Additionally, there’s custom lighting, built-in speakers, and floor-to-ceiling motorized shades throughout the spellbinding apartment.

The home is listed by Elizabeth Sample and Brenda Powers of Sotheby’s International Realty—East Side Manhattan Brokerage. See more photos below.
