Penthouse or cottage? Why not have both?

By |
If you’ve always wanted the views that come with a penthouse, but aren’t a fan of apartment living then a current New York listing might be what you’re looking for.

Situated on the roof of the Pear Tree Place apartment complex in Downtown Manhattan, Penthouse 4C 203 East 13th Street is actually a picturesque cottage, albeit one that comes with views of the Empire State Building.

While it might not come with a large backyard or a white picket fence, there are plenty of features that might have you thinking you’re living in a rural getaway, rather than the city that never sleeps.

The 183 square metre three bedroom cottage features four wood-burning fire places, hardwood floors and two garden terraces spanning 75 square metres complete with their own irrigation systems.

Of course being located in New York means the cottage comes with all the mod-cons, such as a three zone air-conditioning system, three bathrooms and stainless steel appliances throughout.

It also comes with a New York price tag, with it currently listed for US$4.44 million.
