See this 'rarely seen duplex' at 1 Avenue B

Well, I knew the units at 1 Avenue B on East Houston were nice... but not quite like this. The listing for the "rarely seen Penthouse One" is now on the market...

First, a little descriptive listing action via Douglas Elliman:

The fob-keyed elevator opens onto a private landing and gracious gallery foyer that leads into a stunning sun-filled great room boasting 19-foot ceilings, soaring floor-to-ceiling windows with electric shades, custom gas fireplace, Lutron lighting system and a 63" TV home theater system.

The entire main level is bordered by a beautifully landscaped 2,618 sf private wrap-around terrace with built-in hot tub, outdoor grilling station, and unmatched open sky views.

Additional features of the home include dual zone central HVAC and Humidification System, Brazilian walnut flooring throughout, laundry room with side-by-side Whirlpool washer/dryer and an abundance of storage space, and extensive security features. Enjoy endless summers dining under your Ipe pergola draped in wisteria or relish in the unparalleled views, light and space throughout the year.

... as you can see, there's even a painting that pays homage to the gas station that used to be on this corner...

Asking price: $5.95 million.

The Gaseteria art is the contemporary equivalent of a stuffed animal head?
