The Paul Rudolph House in NYC on the Market (House of the Day)


Anyone looking to become a landlord would be thrilled with today's House of the Day: The Paul Rudolph House, designed by the late famous architect and former dean of the Yale School of Architecture, is on the market for $27.5 million.

The house in New York City consists of four apartments: one single-bedroom apartment, two multi-level two-bedroom apartments, and what the listing calls the "crown jewel" penthouse, built by Rudolph for his own use.

The three-story penthouse, described by architecture critic Michael Sorkin as one of the most amazing pieces of modern urban domestic architecture, clocks in at 4,000 square feet with three bathrooms and three bedrooms. Some of its most notable features are its floor-to-ceiling glass walls and its ample windows overlooking the East River.

The townhouse also features five private outdoor spaces, enclosed by exposed steal framework. The new owner will act as a landlord, as all four apartments are currently leased at "market rates," according to the listing. But if you want the iconic penthouse to yourself, the current lease is up in April! (Hat tip to Curbed New York for finding this awesome property).

Howard Morrel of Brown Harris Stevens has the listing.
