We think it was Joan Collins who said the key to a successful marriage is separate bathrooms. Well Joan, we think you’d be pleased with this $13.5 million sprawling unit at the Legacy. 157 East 84th Street Unit THEW offers a unique opportunity: the chance to take 2 duplex townhouse units and put them together for a ginormous 6BR/6BA, 8,648-square-foot Manhattan mansion. A Manhattan mansion with two private outdoor spaces, tons of storage, and bathrooms for everyone.
For starters, the space is enormous with 14” ceilings, wood floors, and “decadent finishings” according to listing agents, Douglas Elliman’s Tavivian Sporn team. There’s a wood-burning fireplace “wrapped in ostrich slate and teak built-ins”; and a kitchen housing Sub Zero, Viking, and Miele appliances—otherwise known as the who’s who of top-of-the-line kitchen furnishings.
But we have a marriage to save, here. And the only thing that’s going to do that is the unbelievable master suite. You know how on the show The Bachelor, the contestants travel to these exotic locales and go on expensive dream dates and you think to yourself, “Well, of course I’d fall in love with that backdrop.” Well you might as well call this master bath Chris Harrison, because you’re about to fall in love. We’re talking 500 square feet of luxury, with heated floors, dual sinks, a wet room with ten shower heads, a Jacuzzi tub and closets galore. And best of all, there are two water closets. Somewhere Joan Collins is smiling with satisfaction.
But unit THEW does so much more than save your marriage. It also entertains you with a 19-foot outdoor patio… and we haven’t even left the master bedroom yet. Walk down a staircase accented by a floor-to-ceiling Wenge bookcase to the lowest level where you’ll find a “custom built teak bar/wine room”, a study, a rec room and a movie theater. Yes, you read that right. This Manhattan masterpiece has a movie theater with a professional projector and 120-inch screen, along with leather seating and sound so you can float away in space with George Clooney in style. Spoiler alert?
The home also has five other bedrooms, each with spa-like en suites; and connecting walk-in closets. Residents share a private gym and courtyard with only 6 other units, along with a 2,600 square-foot rooftop complete with a barbeque, kitchen, dining area and bath. And to top it all off, the Legacy is a full-service building, just minutes from the iconic Central Park with 24-hr concierge and easy access to all the best museums and restaurants the city has to offer. Now we just have one last question for you. Can we borrow $13.5 million?
