Stressed-out Upper East Siders, take note. If the doormen ever do strike, all will not be lost! There's a spa upstairs, after all.
For $4.5 million, this spread at Manhattan House, according to the Corcoran Sunshine listing, offers a 164-square-foot balcony, heated floors and a wine cooler—all good for keeping the blood pressure down. More importantly, it's right under the building's rooftop yoga center. And if intense stretching doesn't actually sound relaxing, New York's first residential Exhale mind-body spa offers massages and facials to calm even the most jittery residents.
When the white-brick building at 200 East 66th Street went up in 1950, it won few accolades—the word "monstrosity" seems to have been bandied around—but it spawned a dozen look-alikes and is now a landmark site. So once you're blissed out from lavender aromatherapy, the building also has its own 1-acre private garden, which includes some mesmerizing Modernist sculptures. —Laura Kusisto
