Our weeklong look at rooftop homes continues now with this comfy one-bedroom co-op on 85th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues. Measuring in at 975 square feet, the penthouse has a wraparound terrace with views in every direction ever granted a name by mortal man. Just try not to look down: it's freakin' scary up there! Instead, let your eyes feast on the verdant terrace or?kaboom!?the solarium. Bet you didn't see that one coming, eh? Someone who knows way more about these types of things fills us in:
This appears to be a classic super shack. The room with fireplace is probably the original shack, the greenhouse lean to was probably added next, and then the bedroom as the value increased.Asking is $1,495,000. After the jump, more pictures and a (quite lovely, we must say) floorplan.
