No, you don’t have to move to Westchester or the Hamptons to feel like you have a “real” home. That’s because Penthouse F on 425 East 13th Street (listed at $3,950,000) offers peerless exclusivity and—at 2,500 square feet—major elbow room. “With two floors, a key-locked elevator and ample outdoor space, including a private rooftop deck and two private balconies, it feels like a house,” says Corcoran broker Holly Sose. One of those balconies is accessed though a 27-foot-long grand living room with floor-to-ceiling windows.
“There’s nothing else like it on the market,” Sose says. The home sprawls over two floors, and includes four sunlit bedrooms and ultra-modern bathrooms. One lucky houseguest can hole up in the entry floor’s only bedroom—all 19 feet of it—which enjoys its own balcony. The penthouse delivers serenity atop one of the city’s most vibrant neighborhoods, and it features an eye-soothing neutral and greyscale color scheme; the pristine white-on-white kitchen contains top-of-the-line appliances. Enter a bathroom to find stone floors that lead to a separate soaking tub and glassed-in shower.
The balcony views of One World Trade are a bonus.“The three private outdoor spaces are my favorites,” Sose says. “This place is begging for an owner that likes to entertain— I always picture lots of girls on the roof yelling ‘rośe all day!’” Summer’s here, so make that frosé.
Soho House, step aside. You don’t need the club when the building boasts a rooftop pool flanked by comfy teak furniture and a sleek outdoor barbeque. Even the state-of-the-art fitness center features natural light.
“I’m obsessed with the rooftop pool,” Sose admits. “Who needs East Hampton?” And the East Village is a lot more relaxed. You can even wear red shoes on a Thursday. “You know what my three-word shorthand is for Penthouse F?” Sose asks. “Massive, privacy—and suntan!”
