This brand new, five-bedroom, five-and-half bath duplex on West 79th Street, across from the Museum of Natural History, has space for days, and a terrace big enough to let its future owners pretend they have a yard all their own, complete with a grill. 

Part of the still-under-construction 207W79 development,  "Townhome A" measures 4,013 square feet and is located on the second and third floors of the development. The place can be yours for the low, low price of $10.5 million, with a $5,701 common charge.  


Designed by Morris Adjmi Architects, the residence features an expansive common area on the first floor, including an oversized living room with a gas fireplace and floor-to-ceiling casement windows.

The flexible first level also contains a south-facing room that can be used as a den, and there's a fully landscaped garden on the deck just outside. For entertaining al fresco, the more than 900 square feet of deck is equipped with a kitchen including a Viking grill, a refrigerator, and a sink. 

The actual kitchen has a nine-foot marble island,, custom grey cabinets by Pedini, and Lefroy Brooks faucets and fittings.

On the second level, the north-facing master bedroom looks out on the street, and the master en-suite bathroom is designed with Bianco Bello marble slab floor-to-ceiling walls and countertops, a white marble floor with radiant heat, brushed nickel Lefroy Brooks fittings and faucets, and a custom bathtub by Waterworks.

The townhouse's additional bathrooms are deluxe, too, with Bianco Beatriz marble walls and floors, and Calacatta marble accent walls in a hive pattern. The powder room includes a Cristal Quartzite countertop and a Calacatta marble floral mosaic flooring and accent wall.

The apartment also comes with a washer/dryer, and the 19-unit complex is pet-friendly. The building has a bike room, playroom, and gym, and if you somehow run out of space, storage is available.
