Let’s say you recently received oodles of money (as in money is no object). Perhaps you won the lottery or inherited a fortune. And let’s say you want to move to a new home and you’re leaving your mind open as to location, size and style.
Take a look at the layout of this place.
Here are the details of this 8,255-square-foot condo penthouse in New York City. It’s on the 96th floor!!!!
- Six bedrooms
- Seven bathrooms
- Two powder rooms
- North, South, East, and West exposures provide panoramic views of Central Park and the City
- Solid oak flooring
- 12′ 6″ ceilings
- 10′ x 10′ windows
- A landing opens to an entry gallery, leading to a 29′ x 44′ corner living room and a separate library with a wood burning fireplace
- A corner dining room offers multiple exposures and flows into the residence’s windowed eat-in chef’s kitchen featuring a wine cellar, pantry, center island, marble floors and countertops, white lacquer and natural oak cabinetry, Miele stainless steel appliances and Dornbracht polished chrome fixtures (whatever they are!)
- The 15′ x 30′ corner master bedroom suite features a sitting room, spacious dressing rooms and two windowed baths with marble floors and walls, cubic marble vanities with carved 22″ oval sinks, custom wood cabinets, freestanding soaking tub and shower, radiant heated floors and Dornbracht polished chrome bath fittings (those Dornbracht fixtures, again!)
- The five additional bedrooms have en suite baths
- A private elevator takes you to your apartment
There’s more. Building amenities include: A children’s playroom, doorman, gym, 75′ swimming pool, valet, private restaurant for the owners of the building’s 126 residences, and room service.
The apartment will be located in a building on 56th Street and Park Avenue, in what will be the tallest residential high-rise in the Western Hemisphere. Besides being two blocks from Central Park, it’s a stone’s throw from Tiffany, Bergdorf Goodman, and a zillion other luxury shops on Madison Avenue. It’s about five blocks from the Museum of Modern Art, a mile from the Whitney Museum and 1.5 miles from the Metropolitan Museum.
Ready to move in (the building will be completed next year)?
Oh, I forgot to tell you. It’ll cost you $79.5 million.
So here’s my question:
Would you pay $79.5 million
to live like this?
(Remember, I said money is no obstacle.)
