House of the Day: Schoolroom-Turned-Penthouse in Harlem




If going back to school is the last thing you'd ever want to do, it's probably because you haven't yet laid eyes on this incredible school-turned-penthouse. That's right, this impeccably stylish, $975,000 penthouse was once part of New York City's P.S. 90.

Though classes at the old Central Harlem elementary school (built circa 1905) are no longer in session, the conversion that's taken place on the former school's uppermost level -- now the penthouse suite -- is teaching us a lesson or two in style. With European oak floors boasting an exquisite herringbone pattern, nine-foot ceilings and "walls of windows," you could easily mistake this stunning, sunlight-drenched space for a Tribeca loft or an East Village penthouse. And with those luxe bathrooms featuring staggered bond-mosaic walls and Palmira stone baths? We give it an A+.


If living in a former classroom isn't cool enough for you, the penthouse also comes with a 1,500-square-foot private terrace (bigger than the apartment itself, which stands at 1,392 square feet) that offers majestic Central Park and Manhattan skyline views.

Lucie Holt and Yana Milanova of Citi Habitats have the listing.
