A YouTuber and real estate agent Erik Conover introduced an ultimate New York City luxury apartment in a YouTube video.

The $135 million penthouse apartment is on the 79th floor of the 432 Park Avenue building. The apartment is called the Floating Inner Garden.

The luxury apartment has five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and two half bathrooms. It also comes with two private elevator landings.

The one-of-a-kind home is designed by the world-famous architect and artist Hiroshi Sugimoto.

A Japanese tea room and non-toxic walls

When you enter the apartment from the elevator, you step into pavers that were brought from a train station in Kyoto.

The apartment comes with a traditional Japanese tea room with tatami mats. The tea room has a stunning view of the Hudson River.

The walls of the entire apartment are made of shikkui plaster. Shikkui plaster is a Japanese lime plaster.

Shikkui plaster improves the air quality of the room. It absorbs carbon dioxide and VOC gases.

Shikkui plaster naturally kills bacteria, viruses, and mold.

The floor is made of thousand-year-old planks of cedar from the Yakushima island. Conover describes in the video that the calming smell of cedar fills the entire room.

The grand salon with the bonsai trees and a sushi bar

In the grand salon, there are two 65-year-old bonsai trees. They bring the natural elements of Central Park indoors.

Between the bonsai trees, there is an oversized komatsu stone. It was brought from Japan.

The grand salon even has a sushi bar with seating for seven people.

The room has five 10-by-10-foot windows with views to the south and the west. You can see the Atlantic ocean, the Empire State Building, and Central Park.

The blinds of the windows are made of centuries-old cedar from Vancouver Island.

Connover explains in the video that all walls of the unit are trimless. When the skyscraper sways, you don’t feel any movement.

The gourmet chef’s kitchen

If you can afford a $135 million apartment, you probably want to hire a gourmet chef to cook your meals.

The luxury kitchen of the New York home is perfect for a top chef. The floors are made of chestnut. The countertops of the center island are hone granite. The sides and the drawers have Corian.

The kitchen comes with a cappuccino maker and a wine cooler.

The custom-made Molteni is a commercial-grade stove. It meets the needs of any world-class top chef.

The floating breakfast bar right in front of the window offers a breathtaking view of New York City. The massive 10-by-10-foot windows are present in the whole apartment.

The Japanese style bathroom and the minimalistic family room

Conover introduces one of the bathrooms. The Japanese-style sink is made of hanoki cypress.

Another bathroom has a bathtub right in front of a huge window. You can take a bath here while enjoying the view of the Atlantic Ocean.

The third bathroom comes with an identical bathtub with a million-dollar view of Central Park.

The family room also represents the minimalistic, Japanese style with lots of space. There is a massive wall-mounted TV. The couch with white cushions runs the entire length of the room. The patterns of the carpet mimic a zen garden.

The minimal theme continues in the first guest bedroom. The only furniture in the room is the custom built-in bed, a desk, a chair, and a shelving unit.

The fourth bedroom used to be a yoga studio of the owners. The views from the 10-by-10-foot window are inspiring.

“Floating above New York City”

Conover interviews the listing agent Noel Berk in the video.

Berk says that the luxury space makes you feel like you are floating above New York City. That was Hiroshi Sugimoto’s intent when he designed the apartment.

Berk also mentions that the apartment “has nothing that attacks your senses”. The luxury space has a calming effect.

Berk has been selling homes in New York for 40 years, and she has never seen anything like the $135 million penthouse apartment.

If you had $135 million, would you like to move into this New York City luxury apartment? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
