New York Real Estate: Peek Inside A Greenwich Village Condo With A Water Tank Cottage (PHOTOS)

New York City is known for its amazing and iconic architecture. And while that often relates to historic structures like the Empire State Building and the Woolworth Building, today's designers are pushing the envelope, and every once in a while they create a one-of-a-kind Manhattan property that completely floors us, like this Greenwich Village condo.

With an asking price of $3.6 million, the pre-war Penthouse designed by Messana O’Rorke Architects has two bedrooms and one and a half baths, along with incredible features like 12-foot ceilings, oversized windows, a fireplace and a landscaped terrace.

And as if those luxuries weren't enough, here comes the jaw-dropping feature: if you take the stainless steel staircase from the dining area up to the roof terrace, you will find that these innovative architects converted a massive industrial water tank into a a truly unique one room cottage with soaring ceilings and modern amenities.

According to Douglas Elliman real estate agency, the separate living area, complete with central air, heat, cable, oculus and 24-foot ceilings, is the only one of its kind in New York City -- pretty cool, huh?
