Buildings are boasting many luxury amenities these days — from pools to pet spas — but what may really make a New Yorker’s life easier is having at-home access to a washing machine. The feature, which comes standard in the suburbs, is not easy to find in NYC apartments. Though they aren’t impossible to have for the average renter, they’re still a luxury.
This Tribeca studio unit packs in a lot of amenities in just over 600 square feet. In addition to the washer dryer, there is a chef's kitchen with stainless steel appliances, wide plank oak wood floors and central air conditioning. The building also features a 24-hour doorman/concierge, landscaped roof deck, fitness center, multimedia lounge and pet spa.
This Upper East Side apartment is part of a “newly revitalized rental building on the site of a former New York culinary ‘institution,’ where the city's most elite A-listers like Andy Warhol, Norman Mailer, Woody Allen, Mikhail Baryshnikov and many others wined and dined in style for over five decades,” according to its listing. The two bedroom, one bath comes fully furnished with a Bosch stacked washer/dryer. Newly-restored 100-year-old exposed brick walls also mix with a modern kitchen featuring black granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.
This Brooklyn Heights loft has 13-foot ceilings and large windows for a view of the Downtown Brooklyn skyline. The one bedroom, one bathroom boasts a custom Italian kitchen with a marble island, solid oak floors and washer/dryer. A large master features plenty of closet space and the bathroom features a separate free-standing soaking tub. The building, dating to 1928, includes a screening room, music room, children's play rooms, yoga studio, games room, golf simulator room and 3,000-square-foot gym.
