16 East 98th Street is one such unicorn. Approximately 1,200 square feet, this sun-flooded penthouse has a 1,200 square foot south-facing "direct living" terrace (10 feet wide at its narrowest point) offering unexpected privacy and protected views of Central Park.
The terrace is perfectly configured with 3 distinct areas: the west side, with sunset views over Central Park, perfectly suited for relaxing and reflecting, the east side, with its proximity to the kitchen, ideal for entertaining and the arboretum that separates the two.
Most penthouses on top of pre-war buildings have a low ceiling, as the space was originally used to house servants. However, this penthouse was blessed with generous 10 foot ceilings which, along with the 18 x 25 foot living room, give the home a loft-like feeling, albeit a loft with views of the sun setting over Central Park.
Currently configured as a three bedroom and one and a half bath apartment with a washer and dryer, Penthouse A has a windowed kitchen equipped with top-of-the-line appliances. However, with glorious natural light all day from 3 exposures (East, South and West), great ceiling heights throughout and plumbing stacks on both sides of the home, the space offers great flexibility.
