This South Harlem penthouse doesn't lack for the great outdoors. For starters, it's ideally positioned close to two greenspaces—Morningside Park and Central Park—and its huge roof deck offers a private perch from which to take in the views of all that greenery. The two-bedroom is in the Gateway, a luxury condominium building with plenty of amenities, plus the added perk of low monthly charges, thanks to a 421-A tax abatement in place until 2032.
Moreover, its location on Frederick Douglass Blvd. means proximity to restaurants, bars, and shopping, in addition the parks. Listed by Halstead for $1.725 million, this unit is a touch pricey for the neighborhood, and its spiral staircase leading to an exclusive outdoor space is a likely explanation. (A caveat: At press time, we heard that the agents have just accepted an offer.)
You'll enter through a foyer into the living area, where you'll find hardwood floors throughout, additional outdoor space in an east-facing balcony, and a separate dining area. The kitchen features a breakfast bar, as well as stainless steel appliances—including a dishwasher and a wine fridge—and generous cabinet storage and countertop space.
The master bedroom, thanks to its corner position, enjoys multiple exposures, and also includes a custom, walk-in closet and en suite bath. The adjacent second bedroom is currently set up as an office, and can easily double as a guest room, as it comes with a Murphy bed and two large closets of its own. Plus, you'll find an additional bathroom across the hall.
The 600-square-foot private roof terrace is definitely the standout here, and is party-ready, thanks to a gas line and outdoor lighting. There's also a water spigot for green thumbs who'd like to do a little rooftop gardening. The building features a common roof deck for more panoramic views, as well as 24-hour doorman service, a gym, laundry room (sorry, no washer and dryer in the unit), and a landscaped courtyard—offering yet another opportunity to get some fresh air.
