Rent a 6,000-square foot penthouse palace in Lenox Hill—for a mere $76,000 per month
Let's say you earn well above NYC's median salary ($50,711, according to WNYC)--per month. How far would that take you in Manhattan's rental market?
Well, one option would be this five-bedroom, eight-bath penthouse duplex in Lenox Hill, which also boasts multiple private terraces and a roof deck that add up to a sprawling 4,000-square feet of outdoor space. Listed by Town Residential, the unit is one of seven in an elegant, prewar mansion, and as you'd imagine, comes with a formidable set of bells and whistles.
A private elevator brings you to the top floor and into a hallway illuminated by a striking skylight; the living room beyond looks like a minimalist's heaven, with bright walls, clean, white exposed ceiling beams, and sliding glass doors that open onto one of the home's several terraces. The kitchen looks massive, with a marble-topped island in the center, stylish metallic backsplashes, two sinks, and upscale appliances, as well as a separate pantry.
Downstairs, the master bedroom features south-facing windows and ensures plenty of privacy: It comes with two walk-in closets and two en suite baths, meaning no competing for space. The en suite pictured is a luxe space, done up in glossy tile with a rain shower and separate soaking tub. An additional three bedrooms at the other side of the floor each come with their own walk-in closets and bathrooms, and two have private terraces, as well.
The roof terrace is a true standout, large and well-equipped enough to host some epic gatherings: You'll find multiple seating and dining space, grills, landscaping, and a hot tub. You can also factor the home's considerable curb appeal into your $76,000 per month; plus, there's a washer and dryer in the unit, as well as 24-hour doorman and concierge service.
