Six Standout New York Residences With Enviable Loggias and Terraces

By: LX Collection

Summer is the time to enjoy the great outdoors. And what better place to do it than your own private New York perch? We’ve rounded up six standout Manhattan residences with enviable outdoor space—from a $5.64 million Midtown residence with a wraparound terrace to a $42 million Upper West Side penthouse with three distinct outdoor living areas. 

130 William, PH63B: $7.4 Million

Experience indoor-outdoor living nearly 800 feet above the bustling streets below with the loggia of Penthouse 63B at the David Adjaye-designed 130 William. With access points from the living room and primary bedroom, the 80-foot-long loggia pulls double duty as a space for both entertaining and relaxing. The three-bedroom residence spans 2,476 interior square feet and sports the bespoke oil-rubbed bronze fixtures the architect designed for the development. 

40 East End Avenue, PHA: $25.5 Million

With a 1,866-square-foot private rooftop and outdoor kitchen with sweeping views of the East River and Downtown Manhattan, Penthouse A of 40 East End Avenue delivers on the dramatics. The rooftop provides areas for lounging, eating, and storage, while an additional terrace off the primary suite makes an intimate private retreat. The interior features 5,949 square feet brought to life by the touch of acclaimed interior designer Deborah Berke, who endowed the space with elegant, functional finishes created for the needs and pleasures of everyday living.

555 West End Avenue, PH: $42 Million

Situated in a former school building, this palatial residence at 555 West End Avenue—a combination of two penthouses into one distinctive offering—totals 8,429 square feet. The development’s landmarked architecture frames its outdoor spaces and makes this penthouse, which partially occupies what was once a barrel-vaulted gymnasium, wholly unique. The 3,145 square feet of private outdoor space is divided among two terraces and a rooftop that offer sun-dappled and shaded areas for eating, lounging, and more.

200 East 59th Street, 25E: $5.64 Million

Designed by CetraRuddy for indoor-outdoor living, all the homes at 200 East 59th Street feature generous wraparound terraces. Residence 25E is no exception, with 571 square feet of outdoor space accessed by entrances from the living room and primary bedroom. The 94-foot wraparound terrace offers views to the north toward the Upper East Side and to the west over the Midtown skyline. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows connect the 1,720-square-foot two-bedroom condo to the outdoor space, while the interiors complement the residence’s abundant sunlight with an airy color palette.


30 Park Place, PH78A: $39.5 Million

A trophy residence designed by Monique Gibson and spotlighted in Architectural Digest, this penthouse near the apex of Robert A.M. Stern’s 30 Park Place features a double-height, 34-foot loggia with a glass balustrade overlooking the expanse of Manhattan. The outdoor space’s grand feeling, marked by limestone columns, carries throughout the 6,127-square-foot interior. From the entrance, there’s a clear line of sight to the loggia—and to Manhattan beyond.

The Park Loggia, PH31C: $9.25 Million

The last remaining penthouse in this new Skidmore, Owings & Merrill-designed building, Penthouse 31C of The Park Loggia sports a namesake outdoor space with views of Lincoln Center and the Hudson River. This corner condo spans 2,216 interior square feet and features three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and a powder room. While the residence provides a heavenly slice of private outdoor space, Central Park is just one block away.
