Personal laundry rooms for your clothes only

You know how frustrating it is to sort all your dirty clothes and schlepp them down to the laundry room of your building only to find every washer and dryer already in use? Well, that wouldn’t happen if you lived in one of these lovely homes, each of which comes equipped with designated laundry rooms for you and you alone. If ever there was a sign that you’ve “made it” in New York, this is certainly one of them.

Located in the basement of this renovated six-story townhouse at 238 East 68th Street (priced at $12.95 million) is this laundry facility complete with a stackable washer and dryer, a sink, and plenty of cabinets for storing detergent and fabric softener and the like. Let’s just cross fingers there a laundry chute connecting it to the third- and fourth-floor bedrooms above!

The laundry room of this $12.995 million, six-bedroom, eight-bath home at 33 West 71st Street may be located in the basement, but the house comes conveniently equipped with an elevator, so no one has to climb up and down six stories just to toss in a load of unmentionables. 

Who said you had to live in a townhouse to have your own laundry room? This three-bedroom, five-bath condo at 737 Park Avenue (listed at $10.999 million) has a pantry/laundry room right off the kitchen so you can whip up a batch of brownies between loads.

Central Park views and a laundry room equipped with a sink, storage closets, and an Asko washer and dryer make for a winning combination at this furnished 2,000-plus-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bath rental at 30 West 63rd Street (yours for $18,000/month).

The laundry room of this five-bedroom, five-bath rental at 212 Warren Street in Battery Park City (for rent at $25,000/month) has a Bosch washer and dryer and its own service entrance, for stealth clothes cleaning by the laundry fairy (or housekeeper).
