It isn’t the kind of space that the word penthouse springs to mind these days, but it is indeed a penthouse, crowning the prewar apartment building at 2 Sutton Place South. Now on the market for $1.35 million, Penthouse B sits on the 21st floor of the 1938 co-op building, offering up generous rooftop terrace space and views towards the East River as well as Midtown’s architectural gems like the Empire State and Chrysler buildings.
The apartment’s floorplan is unique, to say the least, and includes a small separate room accessed via a common hallway that can either be arranged as an office or a bedroom. (Two caveats: the room is only five feet wide—exactly as wide as a queen-sized bed—and any midnight trips to the bathroom would require walking across the common hallway.)
The penthouse comes with a new solarium that the brokerbabble lists as “the ideal space for watching sunsets and sunrises,” as well as an updated kitchen and modernized bathroom. The apartment listing is shared between Warburg and Brown Harris Stevens. Maintenance runs $2,059/month.
