Three of a Kind: Here Comes the Sun (So Be Prepared)

Featured Properties // Mar 14, 2012

Between Daylight Savings Time and the (unofficial) arrival of spring marked these past few sunny days, we’re getting excited about properties that are perfect for warm weather. Whether it’s the outdoor space, the view, or both, these are the penthouse properties we think will be be hot this summer.


Where: 7 East 17th Street, PH
Size: 5 bedrooms/5 bathrooms
Asking: $7,095,000

5,400 square feet of private outdoor space. We could just leave it at that and move on, but there’s so much more to talk about. This huge 5,700-square-foot Flatiron District loft is one of a kind, taking up the entire top floor and allowing for a totally customizable floor plan. The 19 windows are going to let in plenty of sunlight, but the roof deck is a game-changer that just needs a little bit of vision to be turned into one of the most spectacular private outdoor spaces in the city.


Where: 189 Bridge Street, PH
Size: 5 bedrooms/5 bathrooms
Asking: $6,800,000

With five balconies, three terraces and unobstructed views of the city, this Brooklyn bombshell penthouse stands as one of the best apartments on the market for someone who really wants to soak in the sun and warmth. And even when it’s a scorcher outside, you can retreat to the indoors and still feel surrounded by sunlight (with the A/C blasting).


Where: 1280 Fifth Avenue, PH F
Size: 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms
Asking: $2,995,000

There’s nothing like Central Park in the summertime, and 1280 Fifth Avenue has the best views and access to the park of pretty much any new building in the city. The picture above says it all, but the story is really the price. Try finding a similar penthouse and view of Central Park for under $3 million, with a Fifth Avenue address. But don’t try too hard, or else you’ll wind up missing out on this one.
