This penthouse in Nolita offers the best of both worlds, with a massive outdoor space that feels secluded while still being in the heart of lower Manhattan. Located at 136 Baxter Street, a prewar building that once served as a police stable, the duplex unit boasts an incredibly tranquil wraparound terrace, packed with shrubs and flowering trees. The three-bedroom, three-bath is now on the market for $7,495,000.

The apartment takes up over 2,700 square feet across the sixth and seventh floors of the building, with an impressive 1,600 square feet of outdoor space. The seventh floor contains a modern living and dining area, enveloped by floor-to-ceiling windows.

A large wood-burning fireplace helps join together the spaces on this level, including the dining room and open kitchen. The contemporary kitchen has brushed aluminum Miele, Sub-Zero, and Valcucine appliances.

Outside next to the kitchen is an ideal al fresco setup, with the landscaped dining terrace boasting a kitchen equipped with a stainless steel Kalamazoo grill and fridge.

The home’s historic architectural features shine on the lower level, thanks to the original cast-iron columns, 11-foot timber beamed ceilings, and exposed brick walls. There are two bedrooms large enough, both with full baths and walk-in closets, to serve as the primary suite. The third bedroom sits between the primary suites and could serve as a home office.

Also on this floor is a second kitchen perfect for a “late-night snack,” according to the listing, as well as a separate laundry room.

The apartment’s definite draw is the terrace that surrounds three sides of the top floor. With separate sections and an abundance of greenery, the outdoor space feels like a private escape in the heart of downtown. According to the listing, cherry and plum trees, wisteria, and strawberry plants offer “shade and heavenly aromas.”

Constructed in 1915 and converted into condos in 2007, the Machinery Exchange building maintains its historic red brick exterior and its faded painted name still visible. It contains just 12 homes and offers amenities like a 24-hour virtual doorman and a package room.

The Corcoran Group and Compass have the listing.
