House of the Day: Modernist Masterpiece in Manhattan

There are several reason we dig these digs in Manhattan. One, it's located in the Upper East Side's landmarked modernist icon, the Manhattan House. Two, it's designed by the celebrated James Huniford, one of Architectural Digest's "Top 100 Designers," as part of his Modern Collection series. Plus, it's filled with artwork from Voltz Clarke's finest contemporary artists.

And it can be all yours for a modest (for New York City) price of $6.1 million. Which, frankly, for what you're getting, is not a bad deal if you have that kind of money at your disposal. Not only is it beautiful thanks to Huniford's aesthetic genius -- south-facing windowed walls overlooking Manhattan House's private gardens, soft grays and calming jade-green color themes throughout -- but it also boasts three spacious bedrooms with en-suite marble bathrooms, a media room, a chef's kitchen featuring Viking Professional appliances and a windowed eat-in "breakfast room."

Some of the 3,200-square-foot pad's finest amenities, however, come with the building itself. All residents of the Manhattan House have access to the exclusive rooftop Manhattan Club, the Exhale mind-body spa, a therapy room, a yoga center and a fitness center, plus a Roto Studio-designed children's playroom.
