9 Luxe Listings Around the Tri-State

9 Luxe Listings Around the Tri-State

$24.5 million, 146 Waverly Place
When a townhouse’s cellar puts to shame most people’s entire houses, it’s time to sign the damn papers. The cellar here is “flooded” with light thanks to its three skylights, and has just-shy-of-nine-foot ceilings, a bathroom, gym and a wet bar.

SPECS ANDTHE CITY: 7,600 square feet seven bedrooms, 6½ bathrooms, West Village

PERKS: 23-foot-wide, recently gutted Greek Revival, six floors, roof deck with full Viking outdoor kitchen, terrace, large eat-in kitchen with double-height seating area, radiant heated flooring and A/C throughout.

WHAT’STHE CATCH? With a basement like that, how could your kid not move into it after college?

THE X-FACTOR: Two “enormous” Miele wine coolers in the cellar that’ll make you thankful for its full bathroom.

Turett Collaborative Architects have done more transforming than Michael Bay. This particular project began life in 1853 as a Greek Revival townhouse. But then TCA recently got their hot little hands on it and upgraded it into a seven-level, “state-of-the-art” residence.

SPECS ANDTHE CITY: 7,053 square feet, six bedrooms, 6½ bathrooms, Greenwich Village

WHAT’STHE CATCH? With “unparalleled views” of Washington Square Park, speed chess might best Monday Night Football as your favorite spectator sport.

THE X-FACTOR: Much like their tigers, Siberia’s oak makes ours look like a joke. Lucky for you, your floors are made of it. (Oak, not tiger.)

$32.9 million, 1 Central Park South

Channel your inner Tony Soprano (sans the Asian hooker … or not) and hole up at the Plaza. This particular unit — 409 — was an Architectural Digest centerfold as recently as last November.

SPECS ANDTHE CITY: 4,000 square feet, four bedrooms, 3½ bathrooms, Central Park South

PERKS: Gut-renovated in 2011 by Louis Lisboa of VL Architects and interior designer Susanna Maggard, 13-foot ceilings, large windows, park views and reduced rates for La Palestra’s spa.

WHAT’STHE CATCH? Omnipresent tourists! Ack!

THE X-FACTOR: Frank Lloyd Wright lived here in the ’50s while overseeing construction of a little pet project of his: the Guggenheim Museum.

$8.95 million, Scarsdale, NY

Occupying 1.32 acres, this Scarsdale diet is rich in “delightful” outdoor areas and interior square-footage. A “family retreat” par excellence.

SPECS ANDTHE CITY: 7,933 square feet, four bedrooms, 5½ bathrooms

Photo: Courtesy of Douglas Elliman

PERKS: “Manicured” grounds, “sophisticated” living and dining rooms, “professional” kitchen, three-car garage, media room, playroom, two laundry rooms, gym, mudroom and vegetable garden.

WHAT’STHE CATCH? It has two home offices: all that work — where’s the play?

THE X-FACTOR: Luckily, there’s also an on-site volleyball court, heated saltwater pool and grill-equipped patio to ensure you won’t be getting any work done in either office.

$17.75 million, 845 United Nations Plaza

You don’t need a “Make America Great Again” cap to move into Trump’s World Tower building. A crosswalk from the UN, it’s perfectly situated for negotiating Mideast peace deals or just taking in the “breathtaking” and “unimaginable” panoramic views.

SPECS ANDTHE CITY: 4,700 square feet, four bedrooms, 5½ bathrooms, Midtown East

Photo: Courtesy of Town Residential

PERKS: 12-foot ceilings and windows, a “magical” 70-foot-wide expanse, “exquisite” doors, chef’s eat-in kitchen, “luxurious” master suite and indoor pool.

WHAT’STHE CATCH? Your long elevator commute — to the 86th floor.

THE X-FACTOR: The corner dining room has a view of the “most arresting sunsets ever seen” — think “China Beach” intro-worthy.

$8.995 MILLION, 142 Fifth Ave.

You might need to up your SPF game at this “exquisitely” renovated duplex penthouse that’s nothing short of “sun-drenched.” Massive 53-foot-by-26-foot rooftop terrace to enjoy the rays? Yes, sir!

SPECS ANDTHE CITY: 3,400 square feet, four bedrooms, 3½ bathrooms, Flatiron

Photo: Photo by Donna Dotan

PERKS: “Grand” library, arched windows, wine fridge, “sleek” gas-burning fireplace framed in stone, a steel enamel Kaldewei soaking bathtub in the master suite, media room.

WHAT’S THE CATCH? A machete might be more useful than grill tongs when hosting rooftop patio parties: Gunn Landscape Architecture “thoughtfully” planned a veritable jungle of ivy, evergreens, wisteria and trees. Leave a trail of bread crumbs so you don’t get lost.

THE X-FACTOR: You can be one of the tannest people on Fifth Avenue never to have left the house.

$39.5 million, 57 E. 64th St.

You know you’re kind of a big deal when you have four names. Late-19th century architect Charles Pierrepont Henry Gilbert was famous for designing “opulent” townhouses and mansions for fat-cat bankers and the like during the Gilded Age. This “priceless” limestone mansion is one such.

SPECS ANDTHE CITY: 14,000 square feet, eight bedrooms, 7½ bathrooms, Upper East Side

Photo: Courtesy of the Corcoran Group

PERKS: Seven levels, “king-size” rooms, a “striking” French Gothic facade, elevator, working fireplaces and bowed floor-to-ceiling windows.

WHAT’S THE CATCH? All your neighbors are rich people. Very rich.

THE X-FACTOR: Sculptural staircases with leaded-glass skylights — CPHG’s (as he’s known to friends) signature work.

$19 million, 132 E. 71st St.

Back in the late 1880s, the Bakwins, a couple of New York City sawbones, transformed what was once a Queen Anne-styled estate into the 22-foot-wide neo-Federal brick townhouse you see today, and packed it with 19th-century Parisian art. This is the first time in 90 years the place will be for sale and Bakwin-less.

SPECS AND THE CITY: 9,000 square feet, 6 bedrooms (plus four for staff), seven full bathrooms, two half, Lenox Hill

Photo: Courtesy Brown Harris Stevens

PERKS: Six floors, basement, chef’s kitchen, “elegant” stairway and elevator serving all floors, two unusually large entertaining rooms, a dining room with “exceptional” original wood paneling, library, “exquisite” garden and rooftop terrace.

WHAT’S THE CATCH? Impressionist art not included.

THE X-FACTOR: The sixth floor (a half-floor) is just begging to be turned into a mancave.

CONTACT: Paula Del Nunzio, Brown Harris Stevens, 212-906-9207

$9.9 million, 1120 Greacen Point Road, Mamaroneck, NY

Photo: Courtesy of Douglas Elliman

Warning: Dillon brothers have a tendency to spawn around this scenic slice of Westchester. This is where both Matt and Kevin went to high school; the nexus of the universe where “Entourage” meets “Wayward Pines.” Nevertheless, this is one of the warmest, most atmospheric towns in New York — it was crowned the best, in fact, by Movoto in 2014.

SPECS AND THE CITY: 10,228 square feet, six bedrooms, 7½ bathrooms

Photo: Courtesy of Douglas Elliman

PERKS: Georgian-style architecture, “wonderful” water views enjoyed from every bedroom suite and living area in the house, “glorious” light throughout, pool and terraces accessed via French doors.

WHAT’S THE CATCH? The garage fits 20-plus — cars, that is. No pressure, or anything.

THE X-FACTOR: Mam’k is the home of Walter’s Hot Dog Stand, duh!

CONTACT: Edi Giguere, Douglas Elliman, 914-723-6800

$24 million, 18 E. 69th St.

This “bold gem” of a townhouse is a triple threat — one part duplex apartment, one part penthouse, one part store space. A golden opportunity to mix business with pleasure.

SPECS AND THE CITY: 7,650 square feet, five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, Upper East Side

Photo: Courtesy of Zag Corp.

PERKS: 24-foot-wide interior with floor-to-ceiling windows and “compelling” fixtures throughout. The duplex apartment has two fireplaces, Bosch appliances, and a “Chanel-inspired” bathroom. The penthouse has multiple skylights, fireplace, exposed brick and, yes, its own “Chanel-inspired” bathroom. (Who knew Coco had so many bladder issues?) The “dramatic” duplex retail space is currently occupied by Fivestory.

WHAT’S THE CATCH? You’re dangerously close to Madison Avenue’s luxe shopping strip, where credit cards go to die.

THE X-FACTOR: A “gorgeous” roof deck from which to spy on Central Parkers.
