The 14-story luxury condominium at 155 East 79th Street in New York houses seven, full-floor luxury residences—including a three-level penthouse and a duplex maisonette—and is a pretty great option for a nice vacation home. Found in the heart of Manhattan's Upper East Side, 155 East 79th Street offers buyers "the privacy and space of a townhouse, but with the full-service offerings of a high-end condominium."
The building's exterior features marble brick, large windows, French-inspired ornamental work, and Juliet balconies. The interiors are by Andrew Sheinman (Pembrooke & Ives) and feature a "sequential arrangement of rooms to allow for a flawless transition between space and an abundance of natural light through the length of each home."
All of the home has a direct elevator entry, wood-burning fireplaces, and foyers with custom marble flooring. Each of the five duplex condos have five bedrooms and bathrooms, a powder room, and a private landscaped terrace. The maisonette has four bedrooms and bathrooms, a powder room, and a private garden. Found between the dining and media rooms is the chef's kitchen, which is the main focus of each home, and features Vetro Bianco glass slab counters, custom walnut cabinetry, and premium appliances (like Miele refrigerators, dishwashers, and ovens).
Prices range from $8.95 to $18 million, and the expected move-in date is in early 2015. Though the penthouse was already snatched up, as well as one of the other full-floor units, there are still five residences available—including the duplex maisonette.
