If views and luxury apartment living are your thing, this 33rd-floor Yorkville three bedroom, two-and-a-half bath, might be the place for you. Listed for $1,450,000 (and furnished virtually in some photos), the apartment is located at 215 E. 96th Street #33B and measures 1,653 square feet. 

Floor-to-ceiling windows provide expansive views of the East River, the Triborough Bridge, and beyond, as well as loads of natural light. 

A foyer with ample closet space is at the entrance to the apartment, and an eat-in kitchen features Australian Walnut cabinetry, granite counters, and stainless steel appliances. 

The master bedroom has more windows, a walk-in closet and en-suite marble bathroom with a soaking tub and a shower.

In addition to a second full bath, the apartment also has a powder room and a laundry room with a front-loading, energy efficient Bosch washer/dryer. 

The low price might be in part due to the high maintenance of $5,179 a month, which gets residents access to 18,000-square-feet of amenities. Those include a 50-foot pool, a 24-hour health club, a rooftop sun terrace, a pet spa, a kids room, a full-service garage, a bike room, and storage (for an additional fee). There's also a doorman.

The nearest subway is the Q at 96th Street and Second Avenue, and the 4 and the 6 are at Lexington Avenue. Shopping and restaurant strips can be found along Second, Third, and Lexington avenues.
