The massive roof deck at this $15.5M Flatiron penthouse has a 20-foot pool and full bar
Spanning an entire block, this sprawling penthouse at 5 East 17th Street boasts four bedrooms, two private elevators, a 25-foot glass atrium, and a 4,000-square-foot “private sky yard” with a swimming pool, fire pit, and gorgeous city views. No luxury has been spared in this fully-renovated, sleek, and abundantly sunny condo, centrally located on the border of Flatiron and Union Square. A previous sale fell through at the last moment, and now the $15,500,000 unit is back on the market.
An elevator brings you into an 80-foot open living and dining space. The first living area features 12-foot ceilings, a wall of south-facing windows equipped with electronic shades, and a wood-burning fireplace. There’s also a full-fledged home theater with a hidden projection screen and special lighting built-in.
The showstopper is the 25-foot glass atrium with skylights and exposed beams. This space, currently used as a second living area, is open to the eat-in kitchen which features bleached walnut cabinetry, an oversized center island, a Subzero refrigerator, a wine cellar, two Bosch dishwashers, and a windowed breakfast nook.
On the same level, located off a long skylight corridor, are all four bedrooms each with en-suite bathrooms.
The fourth bedroom, at the end of the corridor, comes with its own elevator entry and a private bathroom, making it a good option for a home office.
The floating stairwell in the central living space takes you up to what the listing calls a “private sky yard.” Here you’ll find two-tiered roof decks, for a combined 4,000 square-feet of outdoor space. The primary deck features a 20-foot swimming pool, outdoor shower, walk-on skylights, a full outdoor bar, fire pit, and several seating options. The second deck is smaller and functions as an elevated living room.
