Would You Pay $4.4 Million To Live In A Tiny Rooftop Cottage?

In Manhattan, there are countless discoveries you can only make by simply looking up. But one East Village cottage, situated on the roof of an apartment building at the corner of East 13th Street and Third Avenue, is one you may have missed (because, let's be honest, who would expect a single-family home to exist on top of another structure?). It's a hidden fairy-tale-style gem, right in the heart of the city; and now, not only has it been brought to the public eye, but it's already hit — and gone off — the market.

Described as an "iconic penthouse, featured in a number of publications," this home will certainly have its new owner living happily ever after (for the small price of $4.4 million, of course — remember, money doesn't buy happiness, but it does buy rooftop living in NYC). Inside this cottage of dreams, you'll find three bedrooms, three bathrooms, exposed brick, oak floors, and — oh, my real-estate Gods two private garden terraces. Oh, and did we mention there's a solarium?

This may not be Snow White's little cottage in the woods, but it definitely is cooler — it's on top of New York City, after all.
