And that place is New York.
“Through a cast iron gate and behind a forest green door lies an anomaly: the Penthouse and Cottage at 72 East 1st Street,”, says the listing on Compass.
“This extensively renovated duplex is imbued with the sensibility of an English country house, attracting attention with its unobstructed southern and eastern exposures, its obsessive attention to detail, and most notably its crown: the cottage and terrace Cape Cod style shingles on the roof. »
The home – which is listed for $9.75 million – has four bedrooms, a landscaped patio and stunning views.
“With ceilings up to 12′, exposures on three sides, unobstructed views to the south, and a level of finish equal to that of the rest of the home, the cottage is a transportation oasis,” the listing notes. “As a self-contained studio, it can function as a guest suite or a private home office.”
