As condominiums compete to offer the most beautiful designs and “wow” worthy lifestyles, the ordinary master bathroom has gotten a dramatic makeover into a spa-like retreat backdropped by incredible views of the city skyline.
There is a new trend in real estate where master bathrooms are not only clad in marble and equipped with the latest technology, but also feature luxurious soaking tubs where buyers can relax with glass of wine or book in hand, and watch as day becomes night outside.
1. Penthouse South at 212 West 72nd Street
Priced at $13.5 million, Penthouse South is one of the highly anticipated trophy homes at 212 West 72nd Street, the distinctive Upper West Side building known for its signature, curved glass facade that wraps the corner of 72nd Street and Broadway.
Penthouse South features unique in-residence amenities like a private landscaped roof terrace with a hot tub, fire pit, outdoor kitchen and outdoor shower. CetraRuddy designed a seamless indoor-outdoor experience for the penthouses, with ample natural light and open, flexible spaces, reflective of what buyers in the Upper West Side are demanding. The bathroom, for instance, touts a glass wall framing views of the city and Central Park. It’s anchored by a sculptural bathtub that offers a sense of serenity to residents.
2. Penthouse 20C at Front & York
Designed inside and out by celebrated architect Morris Adjmi, Front & York is introducing the first opportunity to live in a full-service, luxury urban oasis in DUMBO. The development's spectacular penthouses feature luxurious en-suite baths that boast stunning views of the East River and Brooklyn shoreline. Radiant heated marble floors, a bespoke white oak double vanity and Waterworks free-standing soaking tub complete the incredible space.
3. Penthouse 17 at 109 East 79
109 East 79’s Penthouse 17 features a windowed primary bathroom outfitted with honed Olympic Danby stone slab full-height walls and floors; a custom acid etched mirror vanity with an Olympic Danby stone slab countertop, nickel trim, and Lucite drawer pulls; recessed chrome-trimmed medicine cabinets featuring integrated lighting; and a Da Vinci freestanding soaking tub.

4. Residence 24E at 200 East 59th Street
200 East 59th Street is a high-design residential tower that pushes the boundaries of classic modernism. With only one to three homes per floor, all 67 residences are corner units and take advantage of the building's expansive terraces that wrap around its 35 floors.
One of the most elegant towers in its prime location at the intersection of Midtown East and the Upper East Side, 200 East 59th Street is designed by CetraRuddy, and features several listings with dramatic windowed bathrooms. A standout is Residence 24E, a 1,720-square-foot, two-bedroom home overlooking the Midtown skyline with exposures of Central Park. The en-suite master bath is clad with Siberian white polished marble walls and floors and includes a polished marble floating vanity. The freestanding deep-soaking bathtub looks out beyond the horizon through a wall of floor-to-ceiling glass.
