Three of a Kind: Upstairs, Downstairs

Featured Properties // May 16, 2012

There’s nothing like a multi-level apartment to make you feel like you’ve escaped the tight confines of the city. Owners love being able to split up common areas and bedrooms, or just the ability to create a large master suite with total privacy. Here are our favorite duplexes (and one that’s larger) on the market right now.


Where: 211 East 51st Street, PHB
Size: 3 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms
Asking: $5,750,000

This Midtown East penthouse has a lot going for it besides its central location and vast interior space. Both levels are surrounded by over 1,600 square feet of private terrace space, nearly wrapping around both levels. The inside is in mint condition, and we love the generous proportions of all the rooms. And, of course, you can’t forget the ceiling height, which make the spaces apper even more grand than.


Where: 422 East 72nd Street, 28/29C
Size: 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms
Asking: $4,250,000

This Upper East Side apartment has divided its space up into two sections, with the lower level housing all but one of the five bedrooms, and the upper level being used for the dining and living areas. When you take the size, location, and quality of the apartment into account (a chef’s kitchen, terrazzo floors and custom maple walls are just a few of the fancy touches) the asking price seems like a downright deal in the perennially popular neighborhod. Plus, the Oxford Condominium has every amenity that you can imagine.


Where: 211 Mercer Street, 4-A
Size: 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms
Asking: $4,175,000

Getting away from the East Side, here’s a loft space in SoHo that’s as unique as they come. Technically, this apartment is a triplex with a large bedroom or office space and a terrace perched up on the upper level of the unit. Below that is a level for the dining and living area, with the bedrooms below that, on the third floor. It’s a townhouse-style layout that will appeal to many buyers, and the location is among downtown’s best.
