Who needs a shiny new development when you can have a penthouse in the highly sought-after Sutton Place neighborhood that has brag-worthy qualities like soaring coffered ceilings, a solarium, and terraces on all four sides.

But for some reason, it just can’t seem to sell. The apartment at 345 East 57th Street first appeared on the market a year ago, asking $6.5 million. Then it was briefly taken off the market in December after a price cut to $5.9 million. Now it’s back, hoping the third time is a charm, and that an avid fan of Edith Wharton novels drops in with $5.1 million in her pocket.

Enter from a private elevator landing and walk directly into the living room, which has a wood-burning fireplace, stained glass windows, and 11-foot tall coffered ceilings. Off the living room there are large French doors that open to the solarium, which has a terrace on both sides.

The dining room has paneled walls and more stained glass windows, as well as quick access to the high-end, west-facing kitchen through a swinging door. On the other side of the dining room there’s a library with an en suite bathroom, making it the perfect candidate for an additional bedroom.

Back in the northern sleeping quarters are two bedrooms, each with walk-in closets, en suite bathrooms, and Manhattan views. One of the rooms is the master, which has a wood-burning fireplace, a closet outfitted by Smallbone, and a windowed dressing room with private access to the northeast portion of the wraparound terrace.

Sutton Place is the epitome of luxury with specialty marketplaces, a Whole Foods, and one of these days, if we dream hard enough, a Second Avenue subway.
