There’s a $2.6 million penthouse in the middle of Manhattan that has a rooftop barn and silo. The rooftop of 118 Wooster St. in Soho is a unique homage to the pastoral life. Its barn and silo are part of a bulkhead built back in the early 1980s by developers Jason and Julia Carter. The husband-and-wife team purchased seven adjoining manufacturing buildings and renovated them, replacing one bulkhead with a barn and silo, and another with a Greek temple, according to the New York Times. The Greek temple and a “stainless steel-sided structure fashioned after a trailer home" are a few feet from the barn (but are hidden by a fence in the photos). After completing the structures decades ago, Carter said he built them all “just for the fun of it.” He also reportedly wanted to disguise the rooftop compactor shaft as a Spanish mission, and wanted to add wishing wells and lawn flamingos, but was forbidden by the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
