134 Henry Street Penthouse
This is by far one of the most special listings on the market in this price range! The apartment is a giant duplex penthouse which occupies the entire fourth and fifth floors of a masterfully restored townhouse which is actually a landmark historic building. The owners live in the garden and parlor level of the building. The third floor is an office which is basically used as storage for a friend of the owner and acts as a great buffer between the owner unit and the penthouse. The owners are cool however and don't care if the penthouse tenant entertains as long as the rest of the building is being respected(i.e. no drunks in the stairwells etc.). The fourth floor makes up the living area, kitchen, and from the kitchen there is a doorway which goes out onto a 400 square foot private roof deck. The roof deck is partially covered by an ivy covered lattice and comes complete with wooden benches, a cute bench swing and BBQ grill. You feel like you are in Robinson Carusoe's tree house on this deck...it is amazing. The top floor of the penthouse has a bathroom, hallway, and two gigantic rooms which can be left as two bedrooms or subdivided to make three or four bedrooms easily. The apartment feels like you are in a summer home or cottage...not a NYC apartment. It is truly one of a kind and is perfect for a couple or shares. The owner is doing some minor renovations so the apartment will be ready for a October 15th move in depending on what the new tenant wants done.
