This neighborhood is known for its huge loft spaces, but not all of them use their size as well as this penthouse condo on Jay Street, where the 4,400 square feet is distributed nicely throughout the triplex layout with six bedrooms and 4½ bathrooms. Yet, there is still plenty of that openness that brings buyers down here in the first place. The living/dining area stretches 32 feet and boasts a "wall" of oversized windows, while the center-island chef's kitchen features beautiful stone countertops and "endless" ash-wood cabinetry. And take the "dramatic, sky-lit" staircase up to the top level to enjoy the two private landscaped terraces, one of which is more than 500 square feet.
Agent: Richard Orenstein, Halstead Property, (212) 381-4248.
