This impressive Flatiron penthouse at 30 East 21st Street gets instant attention for the sloping double-height wall of framed glass that opens the home up to the city skyline–and the sky. But the $4,995,000 co-op has more enviable attributes: Off the living room is an equally sizable private piazza. In addition, two bedrooms and two baths, endless closet space, and a laundry room are just a few more of the luxuries found in this modern aerie, which was featured in Architectural Digest.

This sun-filled home atop a 13-unit pre-war co-op building gets you a bird’s-eye view of the surrounding skyscrapers. Looking out onto the terrace from the bright, open living room feels like being in a private museum gallery with an enchanted sculpture garden beyond.

Massive doors open onto the terrace, perfect for entertaining in daytime or moonlight. Beyond the terrace is the unique perk of a private storage room, which makes tending this urban garden so much more convenient.

A sleek European kitchen boasts contemporary wood cabinets and plenty of light. A spacious skylit dining room meets the living room at a squared archway with column details.

The main bedroom also gets the skylight treatment. The accompanying bath is framed by exotic marble tiles and pale walls.

The home’s second bedroom is a two-room affair: A stunning study boasts a smaller version of the slanted solarium roof found in the living room. Tall French doors lead to the chamber, which lies beneath white-painted industrial beams. The pet-friendly building offers a video intercom and a full-time super.
