Just about one year ago, the penthouse cottage atop the building that houses Kiehl's on the northeast corner of Third Avenue and 13th Street hit the rental market for $17k a month...
The 1,972-square-foot rooftop duplex is once again available as a rental — but this time the asking rent is $19k a month.
Rent an iconic penthouse, featured in a number of publications for its unique rooftop cottages perched atop this historic boutique pre-war condominium. Penthouse 4CD is a breathtaking light-filled, three bedroom, three bath duplex with four wood-burning fireplaces and two private garden terraces totaling 795 square feet.
This loft-like home features soaring 11'8" ceilings, exquisitely restored exposed brick, pristine hardwood oak floors, and carefully crafted carpentry throughout. Spanning nearly forty feet, with bright South and West exposures, the corner living and dining room are separated by a magnificent brick archway and bookended by two gracious wood-burning fireplaces.
The place is available furnished — short term or long term. The owner is listed as Keyland Ny LLC, who bought the unit in 2015 for $4.4 million.
The landmarked building, constructed in the 1850s, is known as Pear Tree Place. It was converted to condos in 1986, according to Streeteasy.
