In New York City, luxurious penthouse lofts aren’t hard to come by, but they aren’t often situated beneath an iconic water tower, like this $3.995 million abode at 535 Dean Street in Prospect Heights.

Gracing the entire ninth floor of the nine-story former Daily News printing plant-turned-condo building, the apartment offers about 2,500 square feet of space with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. The living room is flourished with custom built-in bookshelves; ceilings soar 15-feet high, and eight-foot casement windows allow for plenty of natural light and stellar views of the city’s skyline.

The open kitchen has been furnished with custom walnut cabinetry, fancy stainless steel Viking and Sub-Zero appliances, and a generous amount of counter space. Just beyond the kitchen is a dining alcove that can accommodate as many as eight people, as well as a pantry.

The main floor is where all the action lies: All of the bedrooms are located on this level, including the master bedrooms, as are each of the bathrooms, a washer/dryer, and several walk-in closets (along with many smaller ones, too). A stylish staircase leads to the loft area where you’ll find office space and sleeping lofts that overlook the main floor.

When it comes to outdoor space, this place doesn’t skimp. There is an 1,800-square-foot landscaped roof garden that shares space with a Brooklyn water tower and features a cabana/wet bar.
