Soaking Up The View


As condominiums compete to offer the most beautiful designs and “wow” worthy lifestyles, the ordinary master bathroom has gotten a dramatic makeover into a spa-like retreat backdropped by incredible views of the city skyline. There is a new trend in real estate where master bathrooms are not only clad in marble and equipped with the latest technology, but also feature luxurious soaking tubs where buyers can relax - glass of wine or book in hand - and watch as day becomes night outside. Abode2 rounds up the best listings from New York, that offer this unique, scenic experience, showcasing the incredible picture-perfect views.

Penthouse South at 212 West 72nd Street in the Upper West Side

Priced at $13.5 million, Penthouse South is one of the highly anticipated trophy homes at 212 West 72nd Street, the distinctive Upper West Side building known for its signature, curved glass facade that wraps the corner of 72nd Street and Broadway. Built in 2010 as the neighbourhood’s premier rental building, formerly known as “The Corner,” 212 West 72nd Street is undergoing a top-to-bottom transformation by CetraRuddy into condominium residences, and will also debut an all-new lobby and common spaces. Penthouse South features unique in-residence amenities like a private landscaped roof terrace with a hot tub, fire pit, outdoor kitchen and outdoor shower. CetraRuddy designed a seamless indoor-outdoor experience for the penthouses, with ample natural light and open, flexible spaces, reflective of what buyers in the Upper West Side are demanding. The bathroom, for instance, touts a glass wall framing views of the city and Central Park. It’s anchored by a sculptural bath tub that offers a sense of serenity to residents. You can check it out in the rendering by Recent Spaces below.

109 East 79’s Penthouse 17 features a windowed primary bathroom outfitted with honed Olympic Danby stone slab full-height walls and floors; a custom acid etched mirror vanity with an Olympic Danby stone slab countertop, nickel trim, and Lucite drawer pulls; recessed chrome-trimmed medicine cabinets featuring integrated lighting; and a Da Vinci freestanding soaking tub, offering tranquil and picturesque north and east views over gardens and landmarked townhouses below.

Residence 24E at 200 East 59th Street, where the Upper East Side meets Midtown East

Like its predecessor 432 Park Avenue, 200 East 59th Street is a high-design residential tower that pushes the boundaries of classic modernism. With only one to three homes per floor, all 67 residences are corner units and take advantage of the building's expansive terraces that wrap around its 35 floors. One of the most elegant towers in its prime location at the intersection of Midtown East and the Upper East Side, 200 East 59th Street is designed by CetraRuddy, and features several listings with dramatic windowed bathrooms. A standout is Residence 24E, a 1,720-square-foot, two-bedroom home overlooking the Midtown skyline with exposures of Central Park. The en-suite master bath is clad with Siberian white polished marble walls and floors and includes a polished marble floating vanity. The freestanding deep-soaking bathtub looks out beyond the horizon through a wall of floor-to-ceiling glass.
