Kudos to Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate for submitting this week's #housepornthurs victor, a mouth-watering New York City penthouse
with jaw-dropping views. The home won by a landslide in a vote on our Facebook page
against a worthy submission tweeted by Southampton Patch
Towering over Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood, the $12.95 million duplex
features two expansive, sheltered terraces that stare out at the Big Apple's skyline. They offer especially breathtaking views of the Empire State Building and midtown Manhattan.
But perhaps the home's most over-the-top amenity is its "sky garage
." It appears to be a lift that lets you park a car right outside the apartment's door. That way, you don't have to take an elevator downstairs and walk to your car. Instead, you walk to your car, and then take an elevator downstairs. Yup.
The 3,248-square-foot home has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, hardwood floors, soaring ceilings and offers access to a luxury gym. To top things off, the lavish apartment's perch over Chelsea Cove provides a visual reprieve from Manhattan's sprawl.
