Penthouses don’t often come with six-figure price tags, but this Gramercy gem at 310 East 23rd Street is asking just shy of $700,000. The top-floor condop has a slightly narrow layout, but it still feels super spacious thanks to a double-height great room with nearly 14-foot ceilings and large north-facing windows that even have views of the Empire State Building. A vaulted skylight above the bedroom loft lets in even more light.
The apartment opens into a foyer with space for a coat/shoe rack and a washer/dryer off the bathroom. From there, the open kitchen has plenty of counter space, all the necessary appliances, stone counters, and a breakfast bar. The living room is highlighted by a wall of custom-designed, floor-to-ceiling closets, behind which is the entertainment system. The bedroom loft has full-height ceilings, the 11’8″ vaulted skylight, and a wardrobe closet.
The 12-story building, known as The Foundry, was built in 1905 as a steel and concrete factory. In more recent years, it was converted to 136 condop units (a co-op with condo-like rules). It has a live-in super, landscaped and furnished roof deck with barbecue grills, laundry room, and bike room. After a year, subletting is permitted, as are guarantors, co-purchases, and pied-a-terres. The maintenance fee is $1,991, but it includes cable and internet, water, and radiator heat.
