Imagine you have around $8 million to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two Upper East Side condos. 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 Death Match.
First up, the ritzy triplex penthouse of 441 East 57th Street—that’s right, a Billionaire’s Row address. The three-bedroom condo is on the market for $7.995 million and comes with three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, a double-height living room, and a rooftop terrace. The less-traditional apartment’s other bragging points include a spacious kitchen with Calacatta marble countertops, its charmingly ‘80s nostalgic mirrored dining room, and an elevator.
Over on Park Avenue, a corner three-bedroom designed by Juan Montoya is on the market for $7.95 million. The apartment at no. 530 definitely has a Park Avenue feel, with its cerused oak paneled entry hall, study, and bedroom and its herringbone wood floor in the dining room. Every bedroom in the apartment has an en suite bathroom, and the powder room comes with mother of pearl decoration. All of the furnishing and lighting pictured is included in the sale price.
