A Cottage in the Clouds

New York penthouse complete with a ‘Nantucket style cottage’ on the roof goes on sale


A New York penthouse with a difference has gone on sale for £2.7 million ($3.5 million, €3.1 million or درهم12.9 million).


Situated in Minthorne House at 72 East 1st Street in the East Village, a fourth to sixth floor 3,000 square foot walk-up comes with not only a duplex with a ‘great room’ with 18-foot ceiling heights but also a ‘Nantucket style roof cottage’ with weathered shingles, a cupola and a wrap-around terrace.


Offered by realtors Compass, the 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom penthouse is one of just three residential units in a building constructed in 1841. It truly is a one-of-a-kind and is described as having “low monthlies” also.
