A penthouse unit at a boutique condo in New York’s trendy Flatiron district has come on the market. The three-bedroom flat combines the best of city living — with incredible panoramic views of the Freedom Tower to the Empire State Building as well as the water towers of Flatiron and its turn-of the-century architecture — with the ease of suburban outdoor living. Two levels of outdoor space, designed by famous landscape architect Edmund Hollander, includes a six-person hot tub, outdoor shower, gas fireplace, full sound system, a weather resistant 4K television, outdoor kitchen and dining area with gas BBQ, and a retractable canopy.
It’s not summer? No problem! The terrace also includes snow-melting heated floors and heat lamps for when it gets chilly. With three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths in 2,710 square feet of space, the condo is available for $11.995 million via Matthew Fox and Stan Ponte at Sotheby’s International Realty. The current owners paid about $10.2 million in 2016.
From street level, the building looks unassuming because of it 25-foot-wide footprint, but its upper four stories (including this penthouse) spill over onto the adjacent garage building, creating 100-foot-wide penthouses, each 100 feet above street level. Building amenities include a 24-hour doorman, resident lounge, outdoor garden, cold storage, bike storage and a pet wash room.
The apartment offers southern, northern and eastern exposures through floor to ceiling windows. The living room offers high-end audio, lighting, and a Sony 4K projector with a motorized screen. No need for a separate media room here. In fact, virtually every room boasts hidden in-wall speakers.
Naturally, the kitchen includes custom cabinetry, Miele appliances and a wine fridge. The rest of the first level features two guest bedrooms, one full bathroom and washer/dryer. There is also an air filtration center that uses ultraviolet light to sanitize all incoming air. (The building is WELL and LEED certified.)
On the second level is the master suite, with more fabulous views through floor to ceiling glass windows. The custom dressing room features a custom center island and shelving, and there’s a second walk in closet right across from it. (We’ll call that the Husband’s Closet.) The bath, with Empire State views, is outfitted with a LaCava soaking tub, steam shower, rain showerhead, double limestone vanities, and radiant heated floors. Opposite the master suite is a home office with another spectacular planted terrace.
Other special features include Venetian plastered walls, a Savant home control center, multi-zoned heating and cooling, and motorized shades. Need a place to stash your extra stuff? Transferred with the sale is a large double unit storage cage. Take that, suburbs!
