This 14th-floor penthouse condo will place you in a lofty perch in a building where many luminaries live: Celebrities from Penelope Cruz to professional hockey player Scott Gomez hang their hats here. The building itself, the Chelsea Mercantile, is plenty famous, too. It started out in 1910 as a fabric manufacturing site, and today retains grand, prewar features, as well as modern amenities. The duplex, listed for $6.5 million with Douglas Elliman, boasts its own private rooftop, with views all the way to the Freedom Tower and Statue of Liberty.
On the first level of the penthouse, you'll enter an open plan living and dining room, featuring large west- and north-facing windows that illuminate the elegant, dark wood floors and frame views of the city and the wide open sky. The kitchen's blond wood cabinets provide an appealing contrast from the floors, and a wine cooler and oversize refrigerator make it well-suited for entertaining. A bedroom, bathroom, walk-in closet, and washer and dryer share this level as well.
Residents of the Mercantile have access to a multitude of perks, some of them rather rare in NYC. In addition to the 24-hour doorman and concierge, gym, playroom, and housekeeping services, there's a valet parking garage and a Whole Foods on site—the latter of which makes shopping for summer rooftop parties even easier.
