About Nantucket Cottage - Roof House

 & why it made the Carpe City list

  • If you stand across the street from 72 East 1st Street and look up, you’ll see something commonly viewed in Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, or The Hamptons!
  • With weathered shingles, a bucolic cupola, and an inviting wrap-around terrace, it’s hard to resist the charm. But this signature beach-house style escape is far from the shore, closer to the East River, and perched atop a $3.5 million penthouse.
  • It’s a four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath property with many windows to allow open city views of Lower Manhattan. Plus, two wood-burning fireplaces.
  • The rooftop cottage addition is a loft space with its own bathroom, kitchenette, more extraordinary open views, and a private terrace. It has more than 3,000 interior and exterior square feet of space – but no elevator!
