Listing of the Day

Location: NoHo, New York

Price: $12.495 million

This top-floor penthouse in a boutique building on trendy Bond Street offers a rooftop retreat with a glass sunroom and a paved roof deck with open city views and multiple seating and dining areas.

“It really is an oasis up there, with an incredibly well-planted garden,” said listing agent Maggie L. Marshall, of the Barton Barrett Marshall Team at Douglas Elliman. 

The rooftop garden features potted shrubs and perennials, privacy screening, planter boxes dotted with cherry trees, built-in speakers, lighting and an irrigation system, according to the listing.

The 20-unit, six-story building at 7 Bond Street, in Manhattan’s NoHo neighborhood, was built in 1904 and converted to condos in 1986. It features cast iron details and a mansard roof.

“The building itself is a quiet, no-frills nondescript prewar building,” Marshall said. “It’s very, very private, very discreet,” and thus attractive to celebrities.

Inside the sixth-floor condo, the foyer opens to a dramatic concrete and steel spiral staircase and an open-plan great room with living and dining areas and the kitchen, according to the listing. It features custom cabinetry, a breakfast bar trimmed with reclaimed Vermont barn wood, live-edge granite counters, a farm sink, a vented gas range and metal doors sourced from a 19th-century Tribeca factory.

Other architectural details include 14-foot ceilings, dark-stained zebrawood flooring and oversized windows.

Penthouse A is “really bright, really airy, a nice mixture of textures and colors,” Marshall said. The four bedrooms, one of which is now used as a media room, “all have different exposures.”

The views to the south and east are open so you get good sun all day, she said.

The primary suite features skylights, east-facing windows, a wall of closets, a custom walk-in dressing room and a bathroom with a double vanity topped with natural stone sinks and a sculptural cedar wood tub.

The sunroom at the top of the spiral staircase is wrapped in glass doors and features a drop-down flatscreen TV, according to the listing.

The 3,067-square-foot condo has four bedrooms and three full bathrooms.

The rooftop also has two pop-up glassed-in enclosures, one of which is used as a home office by one of the owners, Marshall said.

The most recent renovation of the apartment was done around 2015, and the “current owners just upgraded it and pared it down and lightened it up,” she said. “It was very masculine.”
