Here's A Look Inside The Opulent Former NYC Home Of Jeweler Harry Winston

Most know Harry Winston as one of the world's most famous jewelers from the 1900s. While this is tremendously impressive, the New York City home he once lived in is as equally as majestic as his career. Originally, this apartment hit the market in 2018 for a whopping $39.5 million. A few years later, the listing was reposted in May of 2021 at an asking price of $32.5 million. However, less than a year later, the price has gone down a significant amount yet again to $31.25 million, theĀ New York Post reports.

Located at 937 Fifth Avenue in New York, New York, this home consists of 14 rooms total with six of those being bedrooms and five being full size bathrooms. The interior of the residence is around 5,740 square feet in size and was built well over a century ago in 1917, per Sotheby's International Realty. This listing is known to be incredibly rare, so buyers need to act fast.

The views from Harry Winston's stunning home are iconic

One of the most notable features of Harry Winston's home is that while it is an apartment, it actually spans across the entire floor. Therefore, there is no lack of interior space and the possibilities for spreading out are endless. However, being as it is an apartment, there isn't much of a yard to enjoy outside space in. Fortunately, the incredible views from this 9th floor home make up for the lack of space.

According to Sotheby's International Realty, there are a few incredible places that can be viewed from this 12-story apartment building. One of those views is none other than Central Park. This is the perfect place to enjoy some time out in the sunlight, such as taking a walk or enjoying a midday picnic. Furthermore, both the south side skyline and the north side skyline of the park can be both seen from the windows of the home. To add to this luxury, the west side skyline in its entirety can be seen as well.

The interior of Harry Winston's home is pure extravagance

Now that the exterior is squared away, let's discuss the interior of Harry Winston's opulent apartment. Per the New York Post, the entire inside of this impeccable home was decorated by Judith Hernstadt, a former TV executive and art collector. Hernstadt completely furnished the apartment with several one-of-a-kind pieces of antiques, furniture, and art. Some of these pieces include a table where the first president, George Washington, sat and a chandelier that formerly belonged to Winston. While the table itself is not included in the purchase, the chandler is available at additional cost.

Alongside these grand items, the natural aesthetic of this residence is equally impressive. The dining room of this apartment is eye-catching as it features a bright bold shade of yellow along the walls. In contrast, the main living room has brown wooden walls that are home to elegant artwork. Both rooms feature a built-in fireplace to provide some warmth for any cold New York nights.

Harry Winston's gorgeous home has abundant natural light

Amongst many other notable interior luxuries, one of the most appealing extras of the Harry Winston's apartment is the windows. This full-floor home features a total of 27 oversized windows, according to Sotheby's International Realty. This brings in abundant natural light to every area of the home. Therefore, a lot of extra light isn't needed until nightfall comes around. Additionally, much like the dining room, the rest of this apartment mostly features white walls, which allows the natural sunlight to spread throughout the home more evenly and efficiently.

Sleeping in this residence is just as appealing as one might think. The main bedroom is actually a double master bedroom and is located down a long, narrow hallway that features several art pieces. Similar to the other rooms, a fireplace is also built-in the main bedroom as well. It also features an enormous walk-in closet that is sure to hold any amount of clothes one might have. Finally, as one might think, this room also has its own private bathroom.
