The building that began life as a “skyscraper church” and home to the storied Manhattan Towers Hotel at 2166 Broadway was converted to 113 co-ops–and one massive penthouse–in 1980. That penthouse–a rooftop villa with the interiors of a modern farmhouse mixed with a loft–is now on the market for $12,500,000. With a wrap-around terrace and a solarium, the sprawling five-bedroom co-op is blessed with unobstructed 360-degree views of Central Park, the Hudson River, the Midtown skyline, and the George Washington Bridge from every window as well as its dazzling outdoor spaces. A multi-level loft-like floor plan comprises the entire top floor, for endless space in addition to peerless views.

The sky villa begins with a great room consisting of an open living, dining, and kitchen area below a vaulted 16-foot ceiling of white-washed cedar. Throughout the apartment are pale hardwood floors, zoned A/C and heat in every room, skylights, built-ins, and plenty of storage. The living room is anchored by a stone-clad wood-burning fireplace.

Just off the living room is a gem of a temperature-controlled solarium with built-in seating for a one-of-a-kind dining experience. Several terraces off the great room offer an outdoor perch for stunning views of the iconic skyline and sunsets over the Hudson.

The light-filled open kitchen has everything required to serve as the culinary engine for any event or quiet meal. The dining area just beyond is terrace-wrapped and skyline enhanced.

The apartment’s five bedrooms and four baths are set apart from the great room for privacy and tranquility. The eastern wing is home to the home’s primary bedroom suite, which offers Central Park views, direct terrace access, a wood-burning fireplace, and two walk-in closets. The en-suite bath offers a separate shower and a soaking tub with Hudson River views.

Just outside of the bedroom, a stair leads to a skylit office space. This wing also offers three more bedrooms, views included, as well as two loft spaces and a laundry room.

In the home’s western wing is a unique lofted bedroom with Hudson River views. This cozy modern perch features a full bathroom with heated floors, plus a walk-in closet.

The Opera co-op offers residents a 24-hour doorman, concierge service, a live-in resident manager, and a bike and storage room.
