Have you ever wondered what it would be like to take your friends to the park… by just stepping out onto your rooftop? That’s what this stunning unit at the landmark Brewster Carriage House has to offer. This $9.5 million three bedroom simplex has a lot more to it than its sprawling spacious 2,610 square feet of interior space. It also has an additional 1,800 square feet of rooftop terrace with barbecue… and trees.
The penthouse of this former carriage factory was transformed into a condominium by Architectonics a few years ago, with Little Red House masterfully reviving the traditional home with exquisite modern conveniences. So, whoever buys this pad is going to enjoy more than just a light-flooded space with exposed brick walls and an oversized fireplace. They’re also going to get top-of-the-line European kitchen appliances, and a spa bath to make you melt. Yes, we’re talking oversized soaking tubs, 10-inch rainwater showers, Walnut vanities, and his and hers Wetstyle sinks, along with heated floors covered in Mutina Bark stone tile.
There’s an open kitchen and living space, accented by a gorgeous stenciled staircase, and enough windows to invite the sun in for breakfast. But the highlight of this place has got to be that amazing rooftop terrace. If outdoor space in the city is a luxury, then this terrace is just plain gluttonous. With enough space and landscaping to accommodate everything from walking your dog to hosting a friend’s wedding, this picturesque escape with skyline views—including One World Trade Center—has got to be the home’s selling point. We actually want to pitch a tent and just camp out there for a night.
