Townhouse in The Sky
Penthouse B offers the character and qualities of a townhouse on the 18th and 19th floors of a 41 unit white glove cooperative with views out over the city. Light streams through the apartment from south to north at all hours of the day. Special to PHB is a layout that allows for privacy and gracious entertaining with a variety of comfortable places in which to find peaceful repose. In the morning, you can read the paper on the living room's south terrace or in the loggia and have dinner and star gaze from the north terrace in the evening. You can also enjoy music while doing so as six rooms are wired for sound.
The apartment has remarkable elements, unmatched and hard to find: a square living room with wood burning fireplace, loggia, dining room with french doors leading out to a terrace, an outdoor shower and shed for fireplace wood, and central AC. There are three wonderful bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, a staff room off the kitchen, approximately 675 square feet of outdoor space and a private elevator landing.
There is also an external windowed staff room with a sink on the first floor which can be used as a home office, small gym, storage or live-in help. It has allocated shares and can be traded within the cooperative.
