Situated a block from Central Park, this four-bedroom condo at the aptly-named Gatsby at 65 East 96th Street is a design vision at every turn. Asking $4 million, it’s the epitome of classic pre-war style, offering not just four bedrooms and three and a half baths, but also a spacious separate living room, dining room, library, a home office, and formal entry foyer. According to Mansion Global, this sprawling combination of two adjacent units is currently owned by designers Gina and James de Givenchy. The latter is the nephew of Hubert de Givenchy, who founded the fashion house that bears his name.

The classic seven: That increasingly rare breed of New York City apartment, almost non-existent among condos, was much more often seen in the pre-war era, before building owners felt the need to pack as many people as possible into every square inch. This particular specimen in The Gatsby at 65 East 96th Street can be found on the market for $3.195 million in its most likely habitat, the Upper East Side, and it’s a beauty. Everything has been perfectly updated for 21st-century living and gorgeous pre-war details are at their best. There are even building amenities, plus the freedom of condo ownership, but mostly it’s the kind of apartment that only needs to show its floor plan.
