The private rooftop pool is easily one of the most enviable amenities in all of NYC real estate. When the heat wave hits and the humidity is unbearable, spending the day lounging in the sun and dipping in a private pool is the height of New York luxury. Here, we’ve rounded up three on-the-market homes with private rooftop pools that have us positively drooling.
If you’re in the market for a custom Isay Weinfeld masterpiece with stunning views, expansive living space and incredible amenities, look no further. Located atop Jardim Norte, Casa de Jardim, penthouse 11A boasts indoor/outdoor living opportunities seldom found in NYC. Upon entry, the spacious living room is flanked by two expansive terraces, one of which is a double-height atrium open to the rooftop terrace. Sliding walls of floor-to-ceiling glass flood the space with south-facing sunlight, while the southeast terrace opens to a dining space, creating the alfresco entertainment space of dreams.
The huge 4,593 feet of private outdoor space is home to the 32-foot rooftop pool, giving plenty of space for family and friends to enjoy the summer weather. For more secluded space, head to the primary suite’s private terrace with unfettered skyline views. Sliding glass walls in both the bedroom and primary bathroom open onto the terrace, continuing the penthouse’s enviable indoor/outdoor living opportunities. Four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms give this penthouse all the space needed for hosting, while the Jardim’s private club offers a 60' sky-lit lap pool, fitness center, movement studio, playroom, separate gentlemen's and ladies' locker rooms each with steam and sauna and a massage treatment room. $21 million, Frances Katzen, Holly Parker, Christopher Salierno, Steven Cohen, Douglas Elliman, 212.350.8575, 212.352.5217, 212.244.5270, 212.303.5296, [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]
No expense was spared while constructing this custom-built penthouse perched 19 floors above NYC’s Flatiron neighborhood. With views in all directions and 40 large windows, this penthouse will have you feeling on top of the world. The expansive space occupies all of the 18th and 19th floors and the majority of the 17th floor, providing 6,659 square feet connected by a stunning spiral stairway complete with a swoon-worthy bespoke Lindsey Adelman chandelier cascading down the staircase’s center. Each floor is accessible by two elevators, and no detail was overlooked, from gorgeous antique hand-blown-glass upper cabinet fronts in the kitchen to specialized paint and plaster finishes, wood paneling, wallpaper and textured fabrics throughout the home.
Three of the bedroom suites are all outfitted with private bathrooms and ample closet space, with the nanny’s room and laundry closet providing additional square footage. The guest suite wing has a separate entrance, playroom, kitchenette, workout area and additional laundry, allowing your loved ones ultimate comfort and privacy. The primary suite sits on the top floor, where buttery natural light and endless NYC views reign supreme. Just above the primary suite, the rooftop terrace features a full-sized swimming pool, hot tub, pergola and adjoining outdoor dining area and outdoor kitchen for the ultimate entertaining space. The enviable rooftop is only the cherry on top of this incredible six-bed, five-bath and three-half-bath penthouse. $36 million, Leonard Steinberg, Compass, 917.385.0565, [email protected]

Four bedrooms and three bathrooms give plenty of space for friends and family to enjoy the expansive views through the white-oak-framed and motorized-shade-appointed windows.

The open-concept living room, dining room and kitchen are bathed in natural light, while the primary bedroom boasts park views, two reach-in closets and a gorgeous en-suite bathroom.
