The top-floor apartment at 106 Waverly Place is a bachelor pad on the market after it looks like the owner outgrew its purpose. Once featured in an Architectural Digest spread, the two-level apartment with rooftop greenhouse lounge and deck has been fully outfitted with all the accoutrements of a certain type of home: pool table, salvaged ballpark seats, arcade game tucked into a gallery niche. Impressively, thousands of individual bricks in the walls on both sides of the apartment were hand-painted a number of different colors. Three sets of stairs lead to and from different levels of the 3,500 square foot apartment, including a spiral staircase from the master bedroom up to the roof deck and greenhouse enclosure. If one includes the 55 stairs one has to climb to get up to the apartment, a buyer could practically just cancel his gym membership and put the money towards the $4.75 million the seller is asking.
