Penthouse with Wood or Gas Burning Fireplace

One of the most unique feature of Manhattan New York penthouse would be having a wood burning fire place.
A wood burning fireplace or even a gas burning fireplace is a very rare feature to have in a Manhattan New York condo.

The reason why  wood burning fireplace or even a gas burning fireplace so rare is because the building’s structure has to support the venting to an external source, and create the exhaust smoke outlet. This is very challenging in Manhattan New York condo building structures. 

In the luxury condo and penthouse market, it is much common to see gas burning fireplaces than a wood burning fireplace because the smoke that comes with burning wood is considerably more challenging to work with than the aesthetic value of a gas burning fireplace.

If you absolutely require a penthouse condominium with a wood burning fireplace, you will have to realize that the supply of penthouse apartments with a wood burning fireplace is extremely limited.

If there is a New York city penthouse with a wood burning fireplace it is usually the top floor unit with a direct exhaust to a roof top deck or other building system.  Or if it a pre-war building that originally had a wood burning fireplace you are very lucky as this type of building is also extremely rare.

In this environmental conscious city, gas burning fireplaces in penthouse apartments would be much preferable than traditional wood burning fire place, compare to its counter part, gas fireplace is easier to install, to maintain and to exhaust. Gas fireplace create the ambiance and aesthetics that a wood burning fireplace offers but without the smoke or exhaust that may disturb the neighbors in the neighboring buildings or units.

Manhattan Penthouse with Skyline Views

The Manhattan City Skyline is one of the most picturesque and recognizable features of New York City.  A Manhattan Penthouse can offer the very best New York City view.  The view from your Manhattan Penthouse Condominium will be dependent on a couple of factors.

First, being the height of the building.  If you want to live in a high rise building, you can be assured to have an exposure facing the Manhattan skyline.  Something to consider is that there are more high rise condominiums located in midtown or in the Upper West Side or the Upper East Side.  Downtown Manhattan because of zoning restrictions in most neighborhoods has far less in total number of buildings that are high rise.  So the total supply of downtown penthouse condominiums in a high rise building will be more limited.

Second, the exposure of the penthouse apartment will play a defining role in the exposure you have of the Manhattan Skyline.  If your penthouse condominium does not have a panoramic exposure, let’s say you share the penthouse floor with another apartment, then you will have a specific exposure.  Depending on how the apartments were built, you could be the Southern Facing apartment and the other penthouse(s) could have the northern views.

Finally, something to consider is that an exposure can always change depending on development.  The Manhattan skyline is always an ever changing environment.  New condominium buildings or office buildings are always being built and this could potentially affect your view.  If you want a certain view you can always position yourself in certain buildings that are right in front of that view you are looking for, example being if you want a central park view, if you live right on Central Park West or Central Park South facing the park you can be comfortable knowing your view is probably not going to change.  However if you have a view of the Empire State Building and you line in downtown Manhattan, if another building gets built in the midtown area, that could potentially obstruct your view.

Most Manhattan Penthouse’s will have Skyline Views. There are several selections available with Manhattan New York penthouse with skyline views. Contact us today (917)837-8869 and we will recommend few Manhattan New York penthouse with iconic skyline views for you.

Penthouse with Key Access Elevator

What is the security for my penthouse condominium? This is a typical question that is very important to have answered when purchasing a Manhattan NY penthouse condominium.  Often security starts with the building itself, full time doorman, Closed Circuit Monitoring, elevator operators; however every building will be set up differently.

Depending on what level of privacy and customized access will first start with certain specific buildings.  Some buildings once you are in the elevator whether you live on the 2nd floor or the penthouse floor you can reach any floor through from the elevator.  Other buildings with a higher level of security will only allow you to the floor you live on or are visiting.  This access is granted through the doorman monitoring the elevators, an elevator operator in the apartment, or yourself through a FOB key or security token.

In a building where the penthouse takes up the entire floor, very often the elevator will not reach that level of the building without a private key or FOB key.  In most new construction condominium buildings privacy, security and safety are of the utmost concern and multiple levels of access and monitoring are available.  All visitors are introduced by the concierge before they are let into the elevators, deliveries are administered through the building, and your security is of a high priority.

If you have a specific security preference in the building and penthouse we can discuss and recommend buildings with special penthouses will work best for you.
