House Beautiful calls designer Leslie Klotz’s rooftop loft “a wonderful mashup of Manhattan and Montmartre,” and the homeowner says visitors are reminded of a Parisian artist’s garret, though this designed-to-the-nines Nomad penthouse at 66 Madison Avenue is definitely more soigné than starving artist.

A gut renovation of the space–it was once the building’s boiler room–by the designer and former Banana Republic PR executive resulted in a light-filled aerie topped with a web of massive skylights and blessed with enough terrace space to accomodate her love of indoor/outdoor living and entertaining. Now on the market for $2.450 million, the apartment atop the full-service Madison Parq co-op is located in of one of the city’s hottest downtown neighborhoods

A keyed elevator leads to a foyer and a huge storage closet, opposite which is the home’s terrace entry. A 650-square-foot great room features a wall of industrial windows and six massive skylights lining a 12-foot-high cathedral ceiling. The homeowner designed every detail, from molding to the way the home’s layout optimizes the flow of light.

A bright windowed kitchen features aubergine accents and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, a farmhouse sink and plenty of storage space.

The bedroom is a study in well-dressed black, white and grey, and the home’s two full bathrooms offer timeless details like subway tiles and black-and-white accents.

The home’s most breathtaking feature–and undoubtedly its biggest selling point–is the 700-square-foot terrace with open views, planters and running water. There’s plenty of room for lounging and dining; the homeowner created a rooftop paradise complete with Moroccan lanterns, a teak dining table and a tent from Marrakech.

The Madison Parq offers residents 24-hour doorman service, laundry, a live-in super and a bike room, and the surrounding streets offer some of the city’s finest restaurants, nightlife and entertainment options, subways, parks and markets, plus subway access to just about everywhere in NYC.
