It may not have the size of Versailles but in just 1,200 square feet, this Upper East Side co-op packs an opulent punch that’ll have you saying “oui s’il vous plaît.” The $2.2 million duplex is located within a former mansion at 8 East 68th Street, just a few buildings in from Central Park. And in addition to location, it boasts intricate crown moldings and ceilings medallions, reclaimed oak herringbone floors, and an incredibly ornate marble fireplace mantle.

The home has been decorated impeccably, in a tasteful blue-and-white color scheme with contemporary art from Miro and Picasso and what looks like an impressive antique collection. Of course, none of that comes with the home, but the architectural bones are not going anywhere.

Down a “dramatic custom staircase embellished with bespoke iron balusters,” the entire lower level is the master suite, which has an en-suite bathroom, four closets, and a washer/dryer.
