This corner duplex penthouse offers considerable room to spread out. It spans 4,000 square feet, and thanks to its location on East 76th Street, expansive river views; you can also count on the space regularly being flooded with light, thanks to its southern and eastern exposures. And though the property is on the far east side of the city, you'll benefit from proximity to the new Second Avenue Subway stop at 72nd Street. Listed by Nest Seekers International for $5.995 million, the four-bedroom condo's price is actually lower than many similarly sprawling homes on the UES. 

On the main floor, you'll find a long, open plan living and dining area, where oversized windows offer unobstructed views of the water. A curved bar area separates the space from a media room with dark wood accents. The kitchen includes a sunny breakfast nook, and ample room for prep and storage. 

At the other end of this floor, you'll find a bedroom, library, and one-and-a-half baths. The bedroom comes with some very appealing bells and whistles, including a private balcony and spacious dressing room. Off its en suite bath, you'll find a laundry room with a washer and dryer. A spiral staircase leads off a foyer to the top floor. 

Here, you'll find the master suite, where a decorative fireplace, intricate crown moldings, and lavender accents give the space a fanciful air. It also boasts what looks, from the listing, like a massive bathroom, as well as a walk-in closet, dressing room, and attached office space. An adjacent bedroom comes with plenty of its own closet space, plus an en suite bath with a steam shower. 

The property itself includes amenities that boost its luxuriousness: You'll enjoy access to two floors' worth of perks, including a pool, children's playroom, gym, yoga room, business center, and outdoor jogging track. There's also full-time doorman service, a live-in super, a concierge, and a roof deck.
