There’s a beautiful four-bedroom duplex available at 953 Fifth Avenue on the Upper East Side, asking $12 million.

Off the foyer there’s a windowed living room looking out over Central Park. The next room is a library with a gas fireplace made of 18th-century antique chestnut panels from Versailles that travel from the wall to the ceiling. The lower level also features a large bay-windowed dining room that can easily accommodate ten guests, as well as a high-end eat-in kitchen with a butler’s pantry.
