The nice thing about a mezzanine (think: a balcony located inside a an apartment) is that its presence calls for double-height ceilings that create a vastness rarely found in New York City. Here are six eye-popping listings with this covetable feature.

Located in what was once the gym of the former NYPD headquarters at 240 Centre St., this four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath condo features a mezzanine library/lounge that looks out over a massive living and dining room. It's yours for $18.5 million.

A sky-lit mezzanine accessed by a circular wrought-iron staircase adds extra space (an office, perhaps?) to a one-bedroom loft rental at 831 Broadway near Union Square. The asking rent is $14,000 a month.

This seven-bedroom, single-family townhouse at 7 East 67th St. on the Upper East Side boasts a wood-paneled library and walls lined with bookshelves—some accessible via the mezzanine. It's on the market for $36.5 million.

Twenty-foot ceilings on the “parlor floor” of this modernist four-story "townhouse" condo at 169 Water St. in Dumbo (asking price: $5.995 million) allow for a mezzanine-level media room with a Sonos sound system and glass half walls to let the natural light in.
