These new duplex penthouse listings throughout Manhattan take townhouse living to the next level.
Townhouses have long ranked at the top of the list of sought-after real estate. Developers today are elevating the best features of townhouses – multiple stories, expansive living areas and unparalleled privacy, among others – and recreating them in the form of equally charming sky-high duplex condominiums. Located at the crown of new luxury towers or boutique buildings, the following rare penthouse-level homes deliver a living experience like no other.
1. Penthouse C at 200 East 83rd
Crowning the top two floors of the 35-story condo tower designed by the renowned Robert A.M. Stern Architects with interiors by Rottet Studio, Penthouse C at 200 East 83rd presents an opportunity to not only enjoy a masterfully-designed duplex home perched high above the city, but access to a suite of coveted amenities and conveniences such as a 70-foot pool in the sky and automated onsite parking complemented by a vaulted porte-cochere allowing for total privacy.
This rare 6-bed, 6.5 bath residence spans 6,592 square feet of luxurious interior space in addition to 1,864 square feet of exterior space spread across four large private terraces, including a one-of-a-kind dining terrace with arched stonework framing spectacular exposures of Central Park, the East River, Midtown and the Upper East Side.
2. Penthouse 76 at 53 West 53
Comprising the entire 76th and 77th floors for a total of 7,973 square feet, Penthouse 76 at 53W53 stands out as a truly palatial residence atop this crystalline tower, offering four bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, a dedicated service entrance and a private interior elevator. Walls of stunning floor-to-ceiling windows throughout Penthouse 76 artfully frame north-, south-, east-, and west-facing exposures and provide a rare architectural context through which to view Central Park, the East River, the Hudson River, the City skyline, and beyond.
The home features gracious proportions, magnificent details, and ceilings that range up to approximately 21’8”. Bespoke detailing typically reserved for privately commissioned homes abounds, while a rich yet soft palette of museum-quality finishes imbues each space with both modern glamour and timeless elegance.
