Manhattan’s limited collection of rooftop cottages is the stuff of legend, but they’re rarely available for sale. One of those legendary structures, part of a penthouse co-op atop a classic Gramercy loft building at 105 East 16th Street, is now on the market for $5,750,000. Along with the freestanding sky-cottage is a stylish main apartment and multi-level gardens and terraces. This unusual urban aerie has been published in New York Magazine–it’s the East Coast home of Mark Lee, Broadway producer and former CEO of Barneys and Gucci.

Only a fortunate few residences in the Gramercy Park neighborhood come with keys to the actual park, and this two-bedroom co-op at 32 Gramercy Park South is one of them. The apartment–a two-unit combo asking $3,250,000–is fully renovated without the awkwardness sometimes found when units merge.

“Our job was easy – restore the building to its former glory and use reclaimed building materials and antique lighting to create a restaurant and bar that feel like they really belong in the space,” says Huw Gott, co-owner of the NYC outpost of London’s popular steakhouse Hawksmoor, referring to its location in Gramercy’s historic United Charities Building. The restaurant is located in the landmarked building’s grand Assembly Hall, under the original 30-foot vaulted ceiling. It’s the perfect place to enjoy one of Hawksmoor’s famous dry-aged steaks that are cooked over live charcoal. Ahead, see more of the stunning space and hear about the project firsthand from Gott.

The historic St. George’s Episcopal Church is located on the west side of equally historic Stuyvesant Square Park. Around the corner at 205 East 16th Street, the former parish house was built in 1888 and converted in 2005 to a boutique condominium known as The Abbey. The homes are incredibly unique, including this top-floor duplex that just hit the market for $2 million. It underwent a recent gut renovation that features vaulted ceilings with skylights, exposed steel beams, a custom-built aluminum staircase, and a roof terrace.

The apartment is located at the 38 Gramercy Park East co-op and boasts 11-foot ceilings, mirrored walls, and a renovated kitchen and bathroom.
