Prettiest NYC homes that hit the market this week

This week’s edition includes a “sky palace” and a huge triplex penthouse

Every week, Curbed covers dozens of market listings that vary in price, location, size, grandeur, quirkiness, and other distinct characteristics. If they managed to capture our attention, that means there’s definitely something special going on. But some of these homes are so lovely that they warrant a special kind of notoriety as some of the prettiest homes currently up for sale in New York City. And so, here it is: five listing that have that special "je ne sais quoi" that separates them from the rest. Happy gawking!

↑After trying its luck for $28 million back in 2014, Penthouse A within One Vandam has returned to the market, this time asking $25 million. The impressive triplex unit measures 5,286 square feet and is the largest unit within the BKSK Architects-designed tower.

↑This troubled four-story townhouse at 47 West 9th Street is back on the market seeking $22 million. It has six bedrooms, seven full bathrooms and six half baths. Among its assorted charms: multiple terraces, an abundance of fireplaces, tons of original details, a 1,000-bottle wine cellar, and handy staff quarters.

↑Full disclaimer: this “luxurious mega retreat in the sky” resides within Trump World Tower. If you can get past that, the $12.995 million four-bedroom condo has quite a lot going for it.

↑There’s nothing average about the sleekly tailored Vaux Mansion at 215 Sullivan Street, and that includes the townhouse’s extraordinary pedigree: the home was designed by none other than Central Park designer Calvert Vaux for the nonprofit Children’s Aid Society, who after decades fled Greenwich Village in 2010 because it “got too rich.” The townhouse, by the way, is asking $22.5 million.

↑Guy Wildenstein listed a townhouse at 7 Sutton Square for $39.8 million. The double-wide townhouse measures 9,600 square feet and has preserved many original details while adding in modern conveniences like a huge chef’s kitchen and sauna-like showers.
