Soak in style: 6 NYC apartments with classic clawfoot tubs

By Virginia K. Smith  | August 8, 2014 - 2:59PM

The mark of a truly nice (and expensive) apartment is often a fancy bathroom, and for our money, nothing feels more luxurious than soaking in an old-school claw-foot tub. They can be relatively hard to come by these days—especially in ultra-modern condo buildings—but we've combed the listings for apartments currently on the market with tubs we could stay in for hours. BYO rubber ducky, and check out the rest of them below:

This $7.55 million Tribeca penthouse is just as tricked out as you'd expect, and in addition to an enormous outdoor terrace, perks include an en-suite bathroom, which comes with a "wet room" that features a cast iron tub and a ceiling mounted rainforest showerhead.

In a $23,000/month Upper West Side townhouse, the master bedroom's en suite bathroom includes a soaking tub, a shower built for two, and multiple windows.

Another rental with a sky-high monthly asking price: this $19,500/month Soho loft. The master bedroom leads into  a marble bathroom featuring both a claw foot tub and an open shower. The apartment also includes a second marble bathroom with overhead rain shower, but that one doesn't include a tub.

If you're looking to buy (and happen to have millions to drop), this $5.5 million Flatiron condo overlooks Union Square Park, and among many other bells and whistles, includes a master bathroom with the above tub, as well as two translucent glass sinks and granite walls and floors.

Located in a Carroll Gardens townhouse, this $5,000/month two-bedroom includes a restored claw foot tub in a classic black-and-white tiled bathroom, complete with natural light.
