Inspired by his trip to Therme Vals in Switzerland and the architecture of Pritzker-prize-winning architect Peter Zumthor, the owner of the penthouse at 206 East 73rd hired architect Wayne Turret to create his very own spa in New York City. Turret decked out this two-bedroom, two and a half, 2,650-square-foot penthouse loft on the Upper East Side with a high design, minimal modernist, spa-like aesthetic. This unique triplex penthouse, asking $6,950,000, sits on top of the Blanca Loft Condominium near the corner of 73rd Street and 3rd Avenue.
Many an Upper East Side apartment boasts gracious rooms, decorator swag and grandeur to spare. This one-bedroom co-op at 18 East 84th Street in a prime spot just off Fifth Avenue has designer cred with cool, creative execution–and it doesn’t sacrifice a bit of grandeur. This enviable “penthouse” residence is on the top floor of a turn-of-the-century Georgian mansion with plenty of original historic details joining unique and stylish interiors; it’s currently asking $1.095 million.
