The Benson Summary

“THE BENSON IS PURE NEW YORK.
Its design is a long-awaited tribute to the architectural legacy of the Upper East Side. Handlaid limestone, distinctive mullioned windows, and a series of set-back terraces detailed with intricate ironwork all come together to create a sense of romantic verticality on Madison Avenue.”

- PETER PENNOYER, Architecture & Interior Design

Features & Finishes

*RESIDENCES*

A CENTERPIECE FOR MODERN LIVING
The living rooms at The Benson are traditional in their classic proportions and contemporary with their oversized windows and generous ceiling heights. The enfilade of entertaining spaces including living room, formal dining room, and library is aligned with the large west-facing windows, allowing each space to be bathed in a warm afternoon glow.

CUSTOM MANTLEPIECE
A custom-designed mantlepiece frames the signature fireplace anchoring the living room in each residence.

SET FOR ENTERTAINING - THE DINING ROOM
The corner dining room is thoughtfully designed with integrated pocket doors that can separate the dining room from the kitchen for more formal occasions.

THE ART OF FINE KITCHENS - CHEF'S KITCHENS
Every element of the custom kitchen is a reflection of the partnership between Christopher Peacock and Peter Pennoyer. Each kitchen combines fine craftsmanship with a state-of-the-art curated appliance suite. The kitchens are as functional as they are beautiful. The custom kitchen island features rounded corners, Calacatta Gold countertops, and millwork hand-painted in midnight blue.
- Custom Fluted Hood
Both beautiful and practical, the custom-designed backlit fluted glass and nickel hood is vented to the outside.
- Bespoke Detailing
Christopher Peacock custom-designed the hand-painted cabinetry with solid walnut interiors and polished nickel pulls.
- Intelligent by Design
The state-of-the-art integrated appliance suite is outfitted by Sub-Zero and Miele.
- The Kitchen Island
The signature midnight blue island with rounded corners and topped with honed Calacatta Gold marble slab is the centerpiece of the kitchen

A TRUE SANCTUARY
A true sanctuary, the master suite occupies its own wing with generous walk-in closets and a perfectly appointed master bath.
- Bay Windows
Generously proportioned European-style casement windows are oriented to capture western exposures. The bay window gives the master bedroom added charm and is the perfect spot for a window seat.

BEAUTY IN THE DETAILS
In the master bathroom, an oversized window is placed above the soaking tub, a natural centerpiece, allowing the handlaid stone floor to be warmed by natural light. The master bathroom has a sense of elegance and a clean simplicity created with rich finishes and details. The custom vanity, large rain shower, and radiant heated floors complete the master bath.

POWER ROOM
Rich in materiality, the Blue de Savoie floors with a Nero Marquina stone border provide a sophisticated backdrop to the hand-carved Nero Marquina marble vanity. Burnished brass elongated wall sconces and Waterworks fittings complete the composition.

PRIVATE ENTRY FOYER
Each element of the residence design reflects Peter Pennoyer's meticulous approach to design and spatial planning. The private entry foyer introduces the warmth of natural light the moment one steps onto the private landing. The custom metalwork and glass entry door lead to a classically proportioned formal foyer with a barrel-vaulted ceiling and Chevron patterned oak floors.

*PENTHOUSES*

PENTHOUSE DRAMA
Crowning The Benson are a collection of three penthouses. Perched high above Madison Avenue, the penthouse dining rooms offer captivating views of Central Park and the skyline.

CLASSIC & AIRY
French doors open onto breezy terraces. A focal point of each penthouse living room is the custom-designed fireplace with a Pietra Gray marble hearth.

DESIGNED TO ENTERTAIN - TERRACES
Framed by elegant architectural details, each of the penthouses offers striking private outdoor spaces designed to capture panoramic views of Central Park and Midtown Manhattan.

FUNCTIONAL & BEAUTIFUL - PENTHOUSE KITCHENS
Every element of the custom kitchen is a reflection of the partnership between Christopher Peacock and Peter Pennoyer. Each kitchen combines fine craftsmanship with a state-of-the-art curated appliance suite. The kitchens are as functional as they are beautiful. The custom kitchen island features rounded corners, Calacatta Gold countertops, and millwork hand-painted in midnight blue.
- Custom Fluted Hood
Both beautiful and practical, the custom-designed backlit fluted glass and nickel hood is vented to the outside.
- Bespoke Detailing
Christopher Peacock custom-designed the hand-painted millwork cabinetry with solid walnut interiors and polished nickel pulls; solid walnut open shelving is featured in select residences.
- Intelligent by Design
The state-of-the-art integrated appliance suite is outfitted by Sub-Zero and Miele.
- The Kitchen Island
The sophisticated curved corner detailing elevates the kitchen centerpiece. The honed Calacatta Gold stone countertop is paired with a hand-painted midnight blue millwork base.

BATHED IN LIGHT
In the penthouse residences, the master bathrooms are bathed in natural light. In Penthouse C, the bathroom has three exposures with expansive west-facing windows capturing views of Central Park and the skyline.

*THE TOWNHOUSE*

THE GARDEN
The garden is one of the most impressive private outdoor spaces on the Upper East Side. The dining room and eat-in kitchen open directly to the outside, making it ideal for entertaining. This residence offers the best features of townhouse living, but on two floors and with all the wonderful amenities and services of a well-run building.

THE DINING ROOM
This one-of-a-kind duplex residence offers a 44-foot-long entertainment space flanked by two distinctive outdoor spaces that double the entertaining space in the home. French doors in the kitchen and dining room open onto the expansive private garden, perfect for dining and entertaining.
