The former residence of Senator Jacob Javits and his wife Marion at 322 East 57th Street is once again on the market, asking $7.2 million. 6sqft featured the classic Sutton Place co-op–designed in 1933 by Art Deco architect Joseph Urban–when it was listed in 2017 for $5.2 million; the unit found a buyer at $4.4 million within a year. The 3,300-square-foot duplex has since undergone a thoroughly modern renovation under the direction of the current owner and Sandra Arndt of Studio AKTE. The resulting bold, contemporary design is as noteworthy as its rich history.

Full of antiques and paintings, this Manhattan pre-war co-op looks more like a fine art museum than a New York City apartment. Found in the enclave of Sutton Place at 419 East 57th Street, the lively maisonette duplex has two bedrooms, a 24-foot-long great room, and an expansive dining room, with handpainted trompe-l’oeil details throughout the home. Asking $2,695,000, the ground-floor apartment has its own street-level entrance.

This elegant fifth-floor co-op at 450 East 52nd Street has a rare level of star cachet; Swedish-born Hollywood screen legend Greta Garbo called the pre-war apartment home for 40 years, from 1954 until her death in 1990. The three-bedroom Sutton Place co-op last changed hands in 2017, when it was purchased by John and Marjorie McGraw. John is the former chairman of the publishing house McGraw-Hill. The couple is a fan of Garbo, which may be the reason they purchased the apartment for $8.5 million–$2.5 million over its $5.95 million ask. The east side aerie is now back on the market for $7.25 million.

This two-bedroom, 1,400-square-foot Sutton Place co-op at 435 East 57th Street is the home of Caleb Anderson, partner in the AD top 100 interior design firm Drake/Anderson. Anderson has listed the home for $2,895,000, furniture included, so the next owner can instantly benefit from an impeccable NYC design pedigree. The elegant pre-war apartment underwent a thorough renovation, with top-tier materials and craftsmanship–from Venetian plaster walls and custom hardware to hand-painted wall coverings–evident at every turn.
