Clock Tower Bachelor Pad – Clock Tower is dubbed as the”Ultimate Bachelor Pad” penthouse that’s been decked out by Esquire Magazine and features cutting-edge design, fashion and technology.
For their ninth edition of the Esquire Apartment project, the magazine ventured outside of the usual safety zone of Manhattan and for the first time ever the featured apartment is located in Brooklyn.
The 6,800 square-foot apartment features a master bedroom decorated by Campion Platt for Italian designer Ermenegildo Zegna, and comes complete with hi-tech Toshiba gadgets like the 10-inch Thrive tablets and the Satellite laptop computer.
The rooftop terrace, designed by sfa design for Conrad Hotels & Resorts, features an unmatched view of NYC. Other amenities include an Asics home gym, a clock that displays various worldwide locales and a study tricked out with a state-of-the art work table. The most impressive part of the penthouse paradise is the fourth-floor rooftop terrace, which features a 360-degree view of the New York City skyline.
The central piece of the apartment is the sleek glass-cased elevator located in the middle of the apartment and is surrounded by a oak spiral staircase. In addition to the elevator, the apartment’s great room, located on the first floor, features four 14-foot tall clocks from which the historic building derives it’s name.
The penthouse was listed for $25 million in 2009, but the asking price has since dropped and can be purchased, unfurnished, for an economical $23.5 million.
For those who are more interested in seeing Esquire’s Ultimate Bachelor Pad in its entirety, a one-hour special documenting the design and building of the Clock Tower penthouse can be seen in January on the DIY Network.
