Living in The Penthouse, The Duplex or the Townhome on Irving Place

Haven't been on Irving Place in some time...I had read about the new luxury homes coming to 57 Irving between 17th and 18th...Jeremiah noted the start of the construction on this historic block back in March 2008.

Anyway, here's how 57I is looking now...



... featuring homes named The Penthouse, The Duplex and the Townhome.



Some of the homes are still available (two at the $18 million level). Here's a rundown...

The Townhome
The Townhome at 57 Irving Place is the quintessential urban home. With three full floors, this unique residence features four bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and two powder rooms as well as private street and lobby entrances. Superb conveniences include a private garden, single-car garage, and a full floor of amenities complete with its own thirty-foot saltwater swimming pool, media/entertainment room and fitness spa.

And it looks as if 57I is keeping in line with the bathing-in-front-of-an-open-window trend...

What's the difference between a bathroom and a powder room?

I'd just be happy for an extra closet.

OMG! - i want a saltwater swimming pool! though never in my wildest dreams would i have even dreamt about having one in any fantasy apartment - or, heck, any fantasy house that i daydream of owning.

good thing dreams can be rewritten!

Townhome? Seriousl? It's bad enough we have to accept that some people live in a Townhouse, but Townhome?

Nevermind an extra closet - I just wish I could put a table in my kitchen and eat my oatmeal like the rest of America.

Well. Not really. But still. I wish I could fit a table in my kitchen.

@Goggla: In realty-speak, a bathroom must have either a shower and/or bathtub... so you can bathe. A powder room is a bathroom with just a sink (no shower/no tub).

@Joe - thanks for the clarification, I always thought "powder room" was just a prudish old lady term left over from the days when everyone wore giant wigs, lol.

How about a saltwater bathtub?
