If you can't afford an entire townhouse to yourself in Tribeca, well, join the club. And while this luxe triplex at 46 Laight Street isn't exactly bargain basement—the asking price is a cool $11.5 million—it's still far less than you'd spend splashing out on an entire house in one of the city's toniest neighborhoods.

The 1874 building has undergone recent renovations, and was divided up into three apartments, including this five-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath, 5202-square-foot spread. There's a Juliet balcony off the main living space (which includes a gas fireplace), as well as a shared building roof deck.

The master bedroom features its own private balcony, as well as walk-in closets with built-in storage, and its own private bathroom. On the same floor you'll find two more bedrooms, as well as a home office, a custom media-room with theater seating, and another room that could be turned into, say, a library or playroom.

There's a chef's kitchen with Caesarstone counters, professional-grade appliances, and breakfast bar seating.

As for the rest of the home, you'll have a large laundry room, as well as a recreation room, guest quarters, a wet bar, and another balcony (not pictured). In other words, this home is set up for anyone who loves to entertain guests. (If you're buying with kids, expect to become the de facto host for all play dates).

The building also features amenities including a virtual doorman, gym, and "basketball area," perks you wouldn't have access to in a private townhouse.
