We don't know about you, but at the close of this bruising election season, we sure could use a sanctuary from all the tumult. This six-bedroom mansion in the sky certainly delivers: the Yorkville condo is perched over Carl Schurz Park and the East River beyond, offering gorgeous views from its oversized windows and a luxurious sense of peace within.

Listed by Engel & Volkers for $9.995 million, it's solidly in the fantasy realm for most of us, but it's fun to dream.

The condo's location on East End Avenue means unobstructed waterfront views, and the cavernous living room is outfitted with floor-to-ceiling windows to better take them in. Inside, there's plenty to admire, too. Old world elegance abounds in the mill work throughout—this hallway wouldn't be out of place in a museum—and is coupled with all the contemporary features and appliances you need for entertaining. 

All the bedrooms come with generous closet space and oversize windows with city views, and the six baths ensure plenty of privacy. The master suite includes a walk-in closet and adjacent office area.

The luxe master bath pictured here has a double sink and soaking tub with a window offering its own vistas. The floorplan reflects a wealth of options when it comes to using the considerable space: one bedroom, for example, is currently configured as a screening room. You'll also find a large pantry and laundry room.

As for amenities, the building boasts 24-hour concierge service, a private parking garage, fitness center, squash court, landscaped garden, and more.
