In a vertical city like New York most of us are stacked and packed on almost all sides with almost no view of the sky. But for those who can afford the penthouse or a massive loft in Lower Manhattan, the sky is literally the limit.
Here are a dozen amazing skylights from NYC homes currently listed for sale.
This $2.6 million live/work co-op on Jay Street in TriBeCa has an atrium-style skylight over the living/dining area.
This $8.9 million TriBeCa co-op has a skylight that stretches from the master bedroom to the spa-like bathroom.
This $1.7 million coop loft in SoHo not only has southern exposure to keep the space light-filled all year–it also features a massive industrial overhead skylight.
The bedroom in this $3.2K per month condop in Gramercy Park has a 10-foot vaulted ceiling and an enormous skylight. It is ready for move-in November 15.
This $6K per month rental in Fort Greene, Brooklyn has a sweet little overhead porthole skylight to let in subtle wisps of natural sun in the living room.
This $15.9K per month condo in Chelsea, formerly inhabited by designer Rachel Roy (and featured in this One Kings Lane post) has a two-story greenhouse-style glass enclosure that lights the lofted bedroom and the dining area below.
This $14 million Lenox Hill townhouse was featured once before for the incredible carved wood ceiling but we can’t overlook the interior courtyard…where are we? Ancient Rome? This is amazing.
We rarely get to see the outside of a vaulted skylight…but this $49 million townhouse in TriBeCa has a stunning private roof-deck that showcases the tremendous skylight and living space below.
This $2.9 million penthouse co-op in Lenox Hill has a loft dining/living room with a skylight and floor-to-ceiling windows
It might be too cold to shower al fresco in the fall but what if you can bring the sunshine, inside…this $17.5K per month townhouse in Gramercy Park has skylights in the retro subway-tiled bathroom.
Sometimes a fireplace just isn’t enough…this $6.6 million condo in TriBeCa has a modern skylight that allows narrow strips of light in to warm the living room.
