StreetEasy’s Most Wanted: Seeing double (floors, that is)

By Sara Alessi  | June 29, 2012 - 10:39AM

If you like the idea of living on multiple levels (and don’t mind the winding staircases that often come with it) you might be interested in some duplexes (or even a triplex) that made this week’s edition of StreetEasy’s Most Wanted, the 10 sales listings StreetEasy users saved more often than any others.

A key-locked elevator opens directly into both floors of a renovated $2.6m two-bedroom duplex condo in Chelsea on 17th between Sixth and Seventh Avenues. One of the two private outdoor spaces is a landscaped roof deck (architectural drawings for an 8-person hot tub are available). Every room (including the terrace) is wired for sound. Unobstructed views face north toward the Empire State Building and south toward the Freedom Tower, and a washer/dryer rounds out this space. There's no doorman.

Up on the corner of 81st and Columbus Avenue, a top-floor two-bedroom duplex co-op is going for $1.25m. Though the second bedroom is a bit small, the 300-square-foot private roof deck has a water line for planting and a gas line for a legal gas grill. The north-facing living room has an exposed brick fireplace that can be fitted to become functional.

Also on the UWS on the corner of 90th and Broadway, a one-bedroom duplex condo on the market for $775k has a full wall of 16' windows, and sliding glass doors open to a private north-facing balcony overlooking brownstones. The renovated apartment also has a dishwasher, and residents have free access to building amenities including a solarium-enclosed indoor pool and Jacuzzi, a fitness room and a sauna. Plus, you can buy the unit fully furnished.

If multi-floor homes are your dream, you might even consider a triplex on the corner of South Oxford Street and Lafayette Avenue in Fort Greene. The $650k three-bedroom condo has a flexible floor plan and lots of storage space. The building is pet friendly, but there’s no doorman.
