This 4,000-square-foot three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath condo offers multiple opportunities to soak up the sun. A duplex penthouse, its living area is open, featuring double-height ceilings that also allow for a massive wall of windows to bring in light; wraparound balconies on both levels make for multiple sunbathing and outdoor entertaining opportunities. No need to worry about your home turning into a greenhouse, though: There's an automated climate-control system built in. 

The apartment is perched over west Chelsea, less than a block away from the Highline and close to the piers and Chelsea Market. Listed by Compass for $10.25 million, it's priced well above other three-bedrooms in the neighborhood, but you do get expansive East River views and a summery vibe all year round. 

On the lower level, the living room (see main image) with its sky-high ceiling offers space for a seriously epic bookshelf; it also opens directly onto the terrace. The roomy separate dining area also has terrace access, making for easy indoor/outdoor entertaining, and the luxe white kitchen comes with chef-pleasing, high-end appliances, and a pantry for extra storage. 

One of the bedrooms is on the lower level, and upstairs, you'll find the master and a third bedroom. The master sits off a private balcony and includes a wall of closets and an elegant en-suite bath, featuring double sinks, heated floors, and a separate soaking tub and steam shower. The other two bedrooms have en-suites as well. 

The terrace is huge enough to feel like a backyard, with plenty of space for grilling and lounging. Other perks include an in-unit washer and dryer and a working fireplace; the building offers 24-hour doorman service, a live-in superintendent, and additional storage.
