Agent: Janice Fox, Hazelton Real Estate Inc.

The Place

A 2,900-square-foot condo at the Four Seasons Hotel in Yorkville. This three-bed, two-bath unit has decadent interior design, with gold finishes, crown mouldings and crystal chandeliers. The look of the apartment was inspired by the Gilded Age, according to the agent. 

The History

In 2009, the sellers bought the unit prior to construction and changed the floor plan to suit their specifications, enlarging the foyer and adding another walk-in closet in the master bedroom. After construction, they hired an interior design team to make the unit look like a palace.
