Luxurious Manhattan Penthouses for a Sun-Soaked Summer



Manhattan real estate isn’t exactly renowned for its outdoor spaces. But having the rare private patio or trekking to a public park are not the only options; private residences across the island are popping up with some impressive outdoor spaces. And with the first signs of spring seeping into the weather this week, the need for sun is only on the rise for New Yorkers—who, contrary to popular belief, also need Vitamin D. Check out a few of these bright and luxurious listings below:

30 Park Place, Four Seasons Private Residences

1. 30 Park Place, Four Seasons Private Residences

Sitting just a few blocks from the World Trade Center (and accordingly offering sweeping views of the iconic NYC landmark), 30 Park Place is the tallest condominium in downtown Manhattan at 978 Feet. Sitting atop this building is a duplex penthouse, one half of which is on the market. Asking $29.5 million, the 5,937-square-foot space has five bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, and was designed by Robert A.M. Stern, with interiors by Santopietro. Most important is the 400 square foot terrace, which in addition to the World Trade Center looks out on the downtown skyline and New York Harbor.

The Lindley NYC

2. The Lindley

Costing nearly a 10th of the price and offering more outdoor space is the penthouse of the Lindley, a new development in the Murray Hill neighborhood of Midtown. Asking $2.915 million, the home has 1,200-square-feet of interiors, including two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The private garden outside adds 600-square-feet to this footprint; an outdoor kitchen and dining area are complemented by views of the Empire State Building. Ownership of the penthouse also comes with access to the building’s rooftop.

2 Waterline Square NYC

3. 2 Waterline Square

If open sky isn’t enough for you, the penthouse of new condominium Waterline Square may have another factor in its favor: its waterfront location. Sitting along Riverside Boulevard, the building sits on a five-acre, three-tower development on the Upper West Side. The penthouse itself is asking $17.25 million for 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and 4,134-square-feet of interior living space. But what makes the property a steal is its private outdoor terrace, a sprawling space with several seating areas, a fireplace, and an outdoor kitchen. Setting this home apart from the others is the hot tub, in which you can soak while soaking in views of the Hudson River.

242 Broome Street NYC

4. 242 Broome Street

Previously featured on dailyDEEDS, the penthouse of 242 Broome sits atop Essex Crossing, an urban revitalization development melding residential and commercial spaces for utmost convenience. If the location isn’t appealing enough, the 2,478-square-foot home also features a 1,282-square-foot terrace. Available fully furnished with lounge seating and dining, as well as a gas grill, the spot also comes with views of the East river, as well as the Downtown and Midtown skylines.

555 west End Avenue

5. 555 West End Avenue

Also the subject of a dailyDEEDS feature is 555 West End Avenue, a large condominium converted from a historic Beaux Arts Catholic school. The building’s Solarium Penthouse, formerly the school’s gymnasium, is on the market for $18 million. Though the great room’s barrel-vaulted ceiling, massive skylight, and wall of windows may trick you into feeling like you’re outdoors, the private, south-facing terrace actually makes you so.
