It doesn’t get better than this: a quiet Penthouse oasis capped by an enormous private rooftop space. The northwest exposure provides bridge, river and city views, and the 1,500 square foot private rooftop area is the perfect space for enjoying outdoor living with a BBQ or movie night, while taking in the NYC lights.

This well-sized 3-bedroom 3-bathroom jewel has undergone updates that make an already fantastic apartment even more comfortable.

The 3rd bedroom was removed to provide a sprawling living space that is perfect for entertaining. The king-sized primary bedroom suite has been renovated to provide both a double closet and a walk-in closet. All closets have custom shelving and soft-close drawers.

Large windows throughout provide a stunning profile of the Queensboro Bridge. There are 2 well-sized balconies on the main level for quick outdoor grilling and enjoyment right off the living room.

The kitchen has subtle additions to increase storage and accessibility. Four zones of thermostats, each with their own hidden in-ceiling mini-split, provide programmable heating and A/C throughout, and the primary bathroom has heated floors.

There is also a ventless in-unit washer/dryer.

Most impressive of all is the private 1,500+ square foot roof terrace facing beautiful city and river views that are sure to impress both day and night. The rooftop includes a turfed play area of 300-square feet, and there is still more than enough space to create a seated lounge area, gardening zone, and outdoor kitchen alcove. The owners have enjoyed setting up a temporary screen and projector for outdoor movie nights.

The possibilities are endless when you have this much space.

Another advantage of this penthouse level is the building amenities that are located on your floor: there is a lounge with outdoor area, and a well-equipped gym that is attached to a glassed-in play room. There is a doorman 5 days a week. A storage space in the basement is included with the sale.

This relatively smaller building of 41 units helps this feel like a community and your neighbors on the penthouse level are incredible.

Enjoy local favorites such as American Brass, Madera Cuban Grill, Hupo Szechuan, as well as plenty of coffee and bubble tea options. Easy access to Gantry Park for a jog, a soccer game or the ferry make this location an absolute dream. Please contact the listing agent for a showing anytime!
