In the elevators of New York’s tallest residential buildings, there can often be found a coveted button. It’s labeled not with a number, but with the two holiest of letters: PH, i.e. the penthouse. New York’s skyline is peppered with them, and if you’re lucky enough to call one your home, you probably know the joys of a sprawling terrace with expansive views. This at 26 East 63rd Street, currently on the market, is no stranger to the open air breezes that accompany rooftop living.

Located in a Beaux-Arts building on Madison Avenue and 63rd street—a prestigious block on Manhattan’s Upper East Side—the five-bedroom apartment boasts 4,500 square feet of living space. The eleven foot ceilings and oversized windows flood the apartment with natural light.

But wait—there’s more. The penthouse is topped with a sun-filled solarium and sprawling terrace, arguably the best place to spend a summer afternoon in New York City (think: private rooftop dining, tanning, and entertaining, all with an enviable view of the city). And all this for a cool $15.5 million, which might seem expensive to most of us, but it's an absolute steal in a city where apartments now sell for more than $200 million.

The apartment is listed by Reba Miller at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New York Properties.
