Two Yorkville Townhouses Go Head to Head in the Deathcage

New, 6 comments

Imagine you have around $7,000,000 to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two apartments. How do you make up your mind? The answer is simple: you shove them into a metaphorical cage and let them battle it out until one emerges victorious. It's time for Real Estate Deathmatch.

Address: 422 East 84th Street/ 443 East 87th Street
Price: $4,795,000 $6,995,000
Taxes: $1,500 $3,475
Beds, Baths: 3, 3.5 5, 6
Floors: 3 4

422 East 84th Street is a good deal smaller than its counterpart and, as a result, is $2.2 million cheaper. But that's not the only thing it has going for it, boasting original details like wide planked hardwood floors, crown moldings, and stained glass windows. It also boasts renovated baths, a huge kitchen, a solarium, and a walled-off backyard.

443 East 87th Street is the bigger of the two houses, and it includes four wood-burning fireplaces. It also has a solarium, on the roof, to go along with the private roof deck, second-floor rear-facing Juliet balcony, and a private garden that looks like it's literally made out of magic. The interiors aren't quite as charming, though — the lime green kitchen is particularly questionable.
