Overlooking the Flatiron district, this penthouse co-op at Folio House is in a historic Beaux-Arts building. And though it has classic loft bones and a Fifth Avenue address, this downtown aerie has an up-to-the minute renovation with no detail spared. And its best feature, a gorgeous landscaped roof garden, is a timeless addition to top-floor city living.
On the home’s main level, a sun-filled living room opens to a separate dining area. The space features wide-plank Siberian white oak floors, tall loft ceilings, oversized windows, custom built-ins, and a wood-burning fireplace.
The thoroughly modern kitchen features custom walnut cabinetry, quartz countertops, and top-of-the-line appliances including a Miele refrigerator and a Bertazzoni range.
The master bedroom lies beneath an enormous skylight with motorized shades; sleek built-in storage lines the room. The ensuite bath features heated floors, a soaking tub, and a separate shower.
The upper level, though, is where the magic happens. You’ll find a second bedroom with another wood-burning fireplace and a glass wall that opens onto a planted terrace. This outdoor oasis is big enough for seating areas, an irrigation system, wood storage (for those fireplaces) and plenty of gardening.
Additional perks include a mini-split air conditioning system, a full second bath, a vented washer/dryer and storage space galore. The co-op offers private storage cages on the same floor, a virtual doorman and a full time super.
