When it comes to luxury homes for sale, New York City has it all—from decadent, modern co-ops, to spacious townhouses bursting with grandeur. Here are five of the ritziest residences currently on the market in Manhattan’s exclusive Upper East Side.

#1: Crème de la Crème

Drenched in creamy beige tones, and outfitted in luxe, modern furnishings, is an apartment owned by Related Companies CEO Jeff Blau.

The sumptuous three-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom co-op located at 1040 Fifth Avenue (a Rosario Candela-designed building) is currently available with a new, lower price tag of $34.5 million. The apartment originally listed for $43 million back in January, and was brought down to $38 million before being taken off the market in June. The re-listed space has a light, airy feel, and features extraordinary Central Park views, a media room and staff quarters, wood-burning fireplace, and terrace off the master bedroom.

#2: Deluxe Duplex

Another swanky suite making a second appearance on the market is an apartment spanning two floors of the Carhart Mansion on East 95th Street.


The impressive, 10,350 square-foot space has a whopping 17 rooms, including seven bedrooms, seven-and-a-half bathrooms, a library, family room, study, and exercise room. Listed at $34.9 million, this grand duplex is coated top-to-bottom with intricate, ornate details (wood carved panels, marble floors, crown molding), and additionally features 20-foot-high ceilings and three French doors.

#3: Tremendous Townhouse

Nestled in the center of Lenox Hill, on East 64th Street, is a newly-renovated, five-story townhouse for sale at $10.9 million that is certainly not short on luxury features.


Eleven-foot ceilings, a grand staircase, and large terrace overlooking a landscaped garden are only a few of this property’s fabulous facets. Additionally, there is an oak-paneled library, a master bath (spanning the width of the townhouse), and several wood-burning fireplaces with carved marble mantels.

#4: Simply Harmonious

Warner Music Group COO Robert S. Wiesenthal is currently asking for $10.5 million for his lavish East 63rd Street, five-story townhouse.

Similar to the previous property, this six bedroom, seven bathroom home has also been entirely renovated. It has a state-of-the-art kitchen, two wood-burning fireplaces and terraces, new roofing, and updated electrical and air conditioning/heating systems. The detailed and sharp-looking interior features a primarily neutral base, with pops of color throughout (such as in the carpeting).

#5: Pleasant Penthouse

For a slightly more modest price, there is a penthouse with an interesting history available at 160 East 72nd Street for $7.25 million.


Quite possibly one of its main (of many) intriguing facets is the fact this triplex penthouse used to be a squash–tennis court. It is equipped with 14-foot ceilings, light-filled rooms, an expansive terrace, multiple wood-burning fireplaces, and a solarium.
