It’s a mansion in the sky.

It’s no secret that space in New York City is a top commodity. So, when an apartment hits the market that boasts a 50-foot-high entry foyer and rooftop with enough room for a hot tub, you know it’s special. That’s precisely what’s available with 260 Park Avenue, Penthouse J listed for $8.5 million.

The stunning unit is more like a home than an apartment. It’s a whopping 4,600 square feet of space spread over three floors. The main entry level features the 50-foot-tall entrance complete with a massive skylight, which flows into an open living space with a living room, dining room, stone fireplace, and kitchen with stainless steel Gaggenau, Wolf, Sub-Zero, Bosch and Miele appliances. Incredibly, that same level has a full au-pair suite with its own kitchen, bedroom and bathroom, and separate entrance.

Next, head upstairs on the custom-built sculptural staircase to the sleeping quarters on the second level. There you’ll be treated to a south-facing master suite featuring dual bathrooms, his-and-her custom closets, as well as a wet bar fridge and microwave. Two additional bedrooms are on this level along with a designated play area, and an elevator connects the two floors.

While it’s hard to determine the highlight of the home, one could argue it’s the roof terrace. The private escape has a weather-resistant entertainment system, hot tub and fire pit to enjoy a sky-high oasis in the heart of the city.

Of course, the building is filled with plenty of other amenities if you wish to leave the stunning unit. Residents of the exclusive condo have access to a landscaped lobby, brand new fitness center, several roof decks, concierge and a 24-hour doorman. And the vibrant Flatiron neighborhood is just outside your door.

Is there anything else you could possibly ask for in an apartment?
