With all of the chaos that comes with living in New York City, sometimes residents just need to get away. But the owner of this little gem in Manhattan doesn’t have to go too far to feel those New England vibes.
That’s because the penthouse at 72 East 1st Street is designed just like a Nantucket cottage plopped on top of a building, complete with classic shingle siding, welcoming French doors and the prettiest plants surrounding the entrance.
The tiny piece of paradise has a bedroom and bathroom, along with a terrace that overlooks the bustling city and a local park. It’s part of a bigger condo that’s currently for sale for $3.5 million.
Below, you’ll find two duplex apartments that are divided into two distinct areas: living quarters and a former artist's studio.
The space is on a prime corner location and features unobstructed views of lower Manhattan through 22 windows. There are also two wood-burning fireplaces. We can only imagine how cozy it is in the winter!
The main space is just as country-chic as the cottage penthouse with hardwood floors, wooden accents and a bright white-tiled bathroom. Even the entrance to the home looks like it belongs in a quaint New England town.
The total square footage of the interior property is about 2,736 — quite a lot of space given it’s in a prime New York City, where some live in just 150 square feet.
