It looks like the penthouse at 221 West 13th Street had a bit of trouble selling back in 2011, which is good news for some lucky prospective renters because the beautifully decorated West Village duplex is now available, fully furnished, for $25,000 per month. We’re pretty sure there’s a saying for that: one man’s misfortune is another man’s opportunity. Apparently, the space was originally designed as two separate residences, which may have had something to do with its trouble finding a new owner… well, that and the fact that price kept increasing. Whatever the case, this three-bedroom townhouse has quite a few surprises up its sleeve.

Renters looking for unique features will be more than happy with this home’s details. For starters, the light-filled unit has a few wood-burning fireplaces and 15-inch-wide antique oak floorboards that can never be reproduced. There’s also a screening room with surround sound and a remote-controlled projector and screen.

It’s a little unclear whether there are one or two kitchens in this unit. However, there is at least one kitchen that is open to a combination living/dining room and boasts white glass counters with a breakfast bar and top-of-the-line European appliances. On each floor there are two baths stationed across the hall from each other, and each pair is clad in travertine marble with a steam shower in one and a double spa bath with built-in LCD TV in the other.

But the real masterpiece of this townhouse is the rooftop terrace, which is practically a third-floor residence all on its own. This stunning outdoor oasis is accessed via an electronically operated sliding-glass skylight, similar to a sunroof. Half of the terrace is a massive climate-controlled loggia with a dining table for ten and a fireplace. It also has an outdoor shower, sunbathing platform, fully operating kitchen, an infinity pool, and bamboo privacy screens.
