Condo of the Week: $9.9 million for a giant Yorkville suite with luck on its side
The Place: A gargantuan, marble-lined suite with nearly 7,500 feet of living space. In addition to an open-concept living room, dining room and kitchen, there are six bedrooms, six parking spaces, an office and a den. Luxury extras include Brian Gluckstein–designed kitchen cabinetry and a humidor in the master bedroom.
Big Selling Point: This place is meant for a buyer accustomed to hired help. The building comes with 24-hour valet and concierge services, plus a catering kitchen. The unit, meanwhile, has enough extra space that keeping a live-in servant would be easy.
Bragging Rights: The owners’ custom layout adheres to all the principles of feng shui, the Chinese design philosophy. The rooms and hallways are designed to bring good luck, and even the building’s street address—88—is considered lucky by many Chinese people. We’d guess whoever ends up buying this place is already quite fortunate, though.
Possible Deal Breaker: While there are plenty of extras included—a yoga room, steam showers in the gym, a rooftop garden, and so on—even the wealthiest person might have trouble swallowing maintenance fees that add up to the price of a Porsche Boxster every year.
