The crown jewel of the building, the block, and the neighborhood, exclusive to La Botanica-
If your heaven is a 1,100+-square-foot roof deck garden with a retractable sunshade and views across quaint East Village rooftops, you have to see the penthouse at La Botanica.
There is no property quite like this luxurious 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath penthouse at the top of La Botanica, an all-new condominium residence situated directly across the street from a charming botanical garden on a quiet East Village block. Designed by DXA Studio, this modern residence offers an exquisite oasis just moments from hip restaurants and shops as well as Tompkins Square Park and countless neighborhood attractions. La Botanica's biophilic design philosophy brings the outdoors inside while maximizing light, fresh air, and intimate streetscape views.
The penthouse soaks in the East Village streetscape through its two-story-high, 23-foot-wide, black steel-framed glass wall that opens to a pair of Juliet balconies. The soaring, double-height living room overlooks the garden across the street. Looking south, this glorious vista includes the stepping roof gable and ivy-covered brick and terracotta facades of the Calvert Vaux-designed former school building across the street.
The kitchen - configured as an L with an extended 4-seat island - is stylishly appointed with black granite countertops and backsplash paired with custom walnut cabinetry. Brand-new Miele, Franke and Liebherr appliances complete the kitchen ensemble.
Ascend to the lofted primary suite to discover the sun-drenched bedroom with private north-facing balcony. The primary bathroom is a spa-like cavern finished in flor di bosco ("wildflower") marble wall slabs and radiant flooring. Lit by a large, north-facing window above the tub, the bathroom features a walk-in shower as well as a sleek walnut vanity with integrated dual sink Corian top. A pair of walnut-and-Corian medicine cabinets equipped with integrated LED accent lighting complete the ensemble.
Adjoining the primary bedroom is a lounge/den or home office illuminated by a skylight. From here a walnut-and-glass "stairway to heaven" ascends to the massive private roof deck boasting stainless steel outdoor kitchen equipment and panoramic views galore.
The second and third bedrooms each offer private outdoor access, via a balcony and a Juliet, respectively. Both bedrooms also have en-suite full bathrooms, finished with immaculate materials that echo the primary bathroom. One has a walk-in shower and a toilet/bidet pair; the other has dual sinks and a tub/shower. A huge walk-in dressing room contains a cozy built-in nook where a child could read or nap.
Sound attenuation mats installed beneath each floor help ensure quiet and privacy, while three private balconies, two Juliets, and the nonpareil roof deck invite indoor-outdoor living. Experience the magic of La Botanica first-hand.
