Usually, the split-level layout is reserved for suburban homes, but this Murray Hill one-bedroom has incorporated it in a practical and stylish way. Located at The Antoinette co-op at 7 East 35th Street, the home offers a very impressive 900+ square feet for its $695,000 price tag.

The listing for this $3,250,000 three-bedroom co-op in Murray Hill touts the property as a “true penthouse,” explaining that it “sits on top of the building proper and is accessed through a private entrance at rooftop level.” That location (which sounds pretty darn good to us!) also affords the home at 244 Madison Avenue an incredible rooftop terrace, complete with cozy built-in seating and dining, as well as views of the Empire State Building and Midtown skylines.

One of the city’s most architecturally significant projects to rise in recent years are the two copper-clad towers at 626 First Avenue in Murray Hill known as the American Copper Buildings. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS, the twisted towers boast a rare and distinctive feature: an amenity-filled sky bridge linking the two buildings more than 300 feet in the air. According to JDS, the three-story steel truss structure is Manhattan’s first new sky bridge in 80 years. There are only a handful of residences that boast private outdoor space right on the eye-catching sky bridge—and one of them is now on the rental market seeking $12,000 per month.
