A little-known piece of New York real estate hit the market this week, a beautiful cape-cod style cottage hidden on the roof of an NYC apartment building. But, If you wanted to buy it you’d have to shell out a cool $3.5 million. 

Wherever you go in the city it seems like just above your head is a secret to be discovered. The tops of our buildings aren’t only home to a ton of rooftop bars and secret gardens, this week we learned about a beautiful Cape Cod style cottage hidden away on an East Village rooftop.

It’d be easy to miss if you didn’t know it was there. The penthouse cottage is at 72 East 1st Street and has been on the market a couple of days, and even with an asking price of $3.5 million, according to a report by Harpers Bazaar, the listing broker already has already been approached by 30 interested parties to check the place out. Maybe when you see the interior you’ll see why.

It looks deceptively small from the exterior photos, but in reality, the property enjoys 2,736 square feet of living space. Imagine a country house, but in the middle of the greatest city on earth, that’s what this is. The residence is set up as two separate spaces, a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom duplex occupying the entire fourth and fifth floors and a cottage apartment with a private wraparound terrace.

In the listing, the property is described as:

Truly the most unique property in the East Village, the penthouse at 72 East 1st Street is a full floor duplex with an artist atelier topped with a custom designed Nantucket style cottage. The prime corner location, unobstructed views of Lower Manhattan through twenty-two windows, two wood burning fireplaces, and low monthlies create a spectacular offering that can only be described as a once in a lifetime opportunity. Please note this is a walk up to the fourth floor.

If only we had $3.5 million dollars to spare, right? Check out some interior photos, then you’ll understand the asking price.
