The bachelor pad hasn’t gone out of style, and loft style and condo bachelor pads are especially in high demand in New York City. What defines this type of home isn’t just the fact that single guys live there, it traditionally has a distinguished aesthetic. Tasteful style and a big dose of sophistication are the hallmarks of a classic New York bachelor pad.
Living in a large metro area such as NYC has many advantages. You’ll be mere blocks away from some of the best entertainment venues in the country, as well as top restaurants, performing and visual arts centers, and public transport. Being closer to work and avoiding an unnecessarily long commute is another huge plus.
While many seeking a NYC bachelor pad are single, it’s definitely possible to live in one if you have a family or kids, especially since there’s no shortage of two and three bedroom condos in the city. If you think there’s a chance that you may leave the single life one day, it’s a good idea to plan ahead and forgo studio condos and one bedroom lofts.
Here are ten of the best bachelor pad condos in NYC:
1. A bright and spacious condo
This is a NYC bachelor pad that can easily accommodate a family if you decide to settle down one day. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,713 square feet of space. The abundance of windows and open floor plan bring an even larger feel to the home, and there’s no shortage of quality details. In addition to a stylish kitchen with stainless steel appliances, this condo has hardwood flooring, a patio, and private parking. Its selling price is $1.55 million.
2. A vintage bachelor pad with great details.
If you prefer vintage buildings with plenty of character, this bachelor pad just may fit the bill. The loft was built in 1900, and though it has seen several facelifts since then it hasn’t lost all of its architectural interest — how great is that spiral staircase? The Staten Island bachelor pad has two bedrooms, two baths, and is 1,500 square feet. The selling price for it is $485,000.
3. Luxury touches in a revamped loft.
This one bedroom, two bathroom loft has an aesthetic that screams classic NYC bachelor pad. It has soaring walls, a 16-foot ceiling in the living room, an awesome spiral staircase, and is very stylish while maintaining a masculine look and feel. Some of the gorgeous details include American cherry wide plank flooring in the bedroom, bamboo floors in the living room, Italian plaster, and double skylights. The price for this Carroll Gardens condo is $769,000.
4. An excellent location and amazing features.

Counting the outdoor living area and storage, there’s 1,600 square feet of space in all. Ever see movies or shows where a guy in New York steps off of a key locked elevator into his swanky apartment? That’s exactly what you’d get living here. Right off the elevator is a huge living room with access to a balcony that’s perfect for entertaining, getting a great view of the city, or hanging out. There are high ceilings throughout the condo and the building itself is in a prestigious neighborhood. The sales price is $1.45 million.
5. Built-in style, no effort required.
This NYC Bachelor pad is in a great location, and the loft condo includes one bedroom, two baths, and 1,148 square feet of space. However, what distinguishes this from other loft condos is the number of artful details in the unit. Custom modern ceiling fixtures, beautiful flooring and finishes, and a gourmet kitchen that you just have to see all make it worth the price of $1.175 million.
