Opulent Upper East Side duplex with river views seeks $15M

A “jewel box duplex” indeed

Douglas Elliman.

The brokerbabble calls this sprawling five-bedroom, six-bathroom within the Upper East Side’s prestigious 10 Gracie Square a “jewel box duplex” and we get it: this place is special, as it should be for $15 million.

The apartment is much more aesthetically appealing than other apartments we’ve seen come out of the building and its details are seemingly endless, making the floorplan a bit overwhelming, but let’s try to break it down a little.

A private elevator landing opens up to the main floor and leads into the spacious gallery before heading into the living room. On this floor, ceilings soar 11 feet high and one of the home’s three wood-burning fireplaces, along with a wall of windows overlooking the city are all in place. There is a wood-paneled library that connects to a wet bar and offers sweeping views of the East River.

The massive kitchen, adjacent to the formal dining room, does anything but skimp on the amount of custom wood cabinets it offers. There is a sizable eat-in space and two oversized windows that bring a plethora of sunshine.

Each of the five bedrooms are en-suite and furnished with their own expansive walk-in closets to “ensure maximum privacy,” as the listing description puts it. And should the more than a dozen closets not be enough, there is an additional storage space offered with this massive abode.

Gracie Square has quite the reputation for having sky-high maintenance fees and in this case, the cost is $10,450/month but what’s that to someone already spending $15 million.
