The penthouse at 66 Madison Avenue is one of those unusual apartments that resembles nothing so much as a charming cabin in the sky, surrounded by 700 square feet of outdoor terrace space. This 1,100-square-foot one-bedroom co-op–located in the building’s original rooftop machine room–is perched atop a 1918 Beaux Arts building in the popular Nomad neighborhood. 6sqft featured the rooftop aerie when the previous owner, designer and fashion PR exec Leslie Klotz, listed it for $2.450 million in 2016; it sold for $2,260,000 in early 2017. House Beautiful called the light-filled home, now asking $2.5 million, “a wonderful mashup of Manhattan and Montmartre.”

A keyed elevator opens into the penthouse landing, which offers a capacious storage closet. An outdoor pathway then leads through steel-framed glass into the home’s stunning great room. In this lovely living space, you’ll find 12-foot cathedral ceilings and four massive skylights. The room is anchored by a central wood-burning fireplace. Architectural details include natural oak flooring, carefully-selected hardware, and original decorative cast iron grates over the home’s skylights.

A windowed kitchen offers high-performance appliances including a vented 30-inch Bosch five-burner gas range. Details include quartz worktops, a ceramic tile backsplash, a Shaws farm sink, and custom cabinets.

The most covetable part of this petite penthouse may be the multi-leveled terrace that surrounds it. This charming space is ready for entertaining, gardening, and dining, surrounded by iconic Manhattan views.

Off the great room is a sun-filled south-facing bedroom with the same soaring ceilings and two more skylights. This charming chamber offers two big closets and a black-and-white-tiled ensuite bath. A second bath features a Kohler enameled cast iron bathtub with Waterworks fixtures.

The Madison Parq is a full-service cooperative building occupying a former hotel. Amenities include a 24-hour doorman, an elegant lobby, a live-in superintendent, a bicycle room, and laundry machines on every floor. The pet-friendly building allows pieds-a-terre, co-purchasing, and subletting after two years of residency.
