A townhouse in Manhattan is a covetable real estate purchase. These multi-story dwellings became synonymous with an elite lifestyle and developers today are elevating the best features of townhouses – expansive living areas and unparalleled privacy – and recreating them in the form of sky-high duplex penthouses. These penthouse-level homes offer a living experience that’s even more exclusive than in a townhouse with the added benefits of having panoramic skyline views and a suite of luxurious services and amenities.


Take a look at the best duplex penthouses throughout Manhattan that take townhouse living to the next level.


200 East 83rd, one of the top-selling residential buildings in Upper East Side history, has broken a Third Avenue sales record with the $27 million deal for Penthouse A in November. The tower is home to the most exclusive residence Penthouse C ( that has recently hit the market asking $32.5 million.


The duplex home is perched high above the city and occupies the top two floors of the 35-story condo tower.
