Away: Gramercy Park, New York City, US
Everything about this penthouse is oversized, except for the rooms. There are 14 ft ceilings in the living room, a 10 ft high vaulted roof to the bedroom and views across the city to the Empire State Building from expansive windows. Your lifestyle, though, will have to be on a smaller scale in the skinny living area, diminutive kitchen and the lone bedroom up the winding stairs. Residents in this converted century-old foundry share a roof terrace and laundry room.
Asking price: $575,000 (£464,000).
