Putting on The Ritz

By Zachary Wilson, Modern Luxury

No name embodies luxury quite like that of The Ritz-Carlton, and The Residences at Ritz-Carlton on Long Island is no exception. Located at North Hills, just 20 miles east of the city—and only 60 miles west of the Hamptons—the brand-new property is unlike anything on the market this close to New York. “[The Residences is] perfect for anyone who is tired of the maintenance of a big home, [is] accustomed to condo living but wants more space and quality new construction, or [who] needs a lock-and-leave lifestyle to enjoy other properties or travel without the worries of a single family home,” says Emily Bock of RXR Realty, which oversees and operates the property. “And The Ritz-Carlton services are second to none.”

Indeed, in addition to the fine craftsmanship and gorgeous finishes in the residences themselves, where on-the-market
homes range from 1,637 square feet to 3,711 square feet and all design details are approved by The Ritz-Carlton, hotel worthy services surround every aspect of life. A concierge is on duty 24 hours a day; porters handle deliveries, laundry and dry cleaning; and housekeeping and pet care services are available to all residents. For those commuting to the city or the Hamptons, a Cadillac Escalade is available to whisk you to the Long Island Railroad station nearby. And don’t miss community-building opportunities like movie night in the property’s state-of-the art movie theater, or wine club, water aerobics in the pool and luxury auto test-drives.

Inside the homes themselves, which are listed exclusively by Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty and range in price from $1.425 million to $3.875 million, features include top-of-the-line appliances by Sub-Zero, Wolf and Kohler in the kitchen; a choice of marble, granite or quartzite countertops; and six-foot Bain ultra soaking tubs in the bathrooms. “This the region’s most exciting planned community—ever,” says James Phelps Retz, associate real estate broker and SVP of marketing and technology at Daniel Gale. We can’t help but agree.


    Details such as the marble, appliances and acoustics are approved by The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, and the
    property is fully staffed by The Ritz-Carlton Ladies & Gentlemen.
