Chelsea Penthouse with a Tricked-out, Rooftop Cabana
If a Chelsea penthouse condo with expansive views and high-end fixtures and finishes doesn't quite impress you, note that this two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath unit also comes with a rooftop cabana that's irrigated, landscaped, and outfitted with a full kitchen. Given the spring-like weather this week, the tricked-out perch strikes us as an especially appealing spot. The apartment, listed by CORE, could be all yours for $3.495 million—a mite high even for the neighborhood, but outdoor space in NYC usually comes at a premium.
The condo's high-floor position and multiple exposures mean that the living space gets lots of sunshine, which highlights the warm oak floors. The open kitchen offers ample storage, and is jazzed up with a marble-pattern backsplash and upmarket appliances. Note, though, that you may be a bit squeezed for dining space.
The north-facing master suite boasts a walk-in closet, plus a rain shower and a luxe-looking bath with a marble double vanity and deep tub; there's a large mirror if you're inclined to gaze approvingly at yourself as you soak.
The second bedroom, at the south end of the unit, is almost as spacious as the master, and comes with its own large closet and full bath.
But we're especially intrigued by this cabana, which is primed for warm-weather parties. The apartment also includes an in-unit washer and dryer, and separate storage; elsewhere in the building, amenities include a gym, lounge, media room, and library.
