The three-story apartment from 129th to 131st floors in Central Park Tower on ‘Billionaire’s Row’ in Manhattan is spread over 17,500 square feet, but it’s the 360-degree view that really takes your breath away.
Located at the very top of the residential building – which is one of the world’s tallest, coming in at a whopping 1,400 feet above sea level – you can see the Earth’s curvature and a crystal clear view of the rest of New York.
However, as well as being a penthouse in one of the world’s tallest residential buildings, the property hits new heights as the US’s most expensive, totaling an eye-watering $250 million.
The expansive property has three powder rooms and eight bathrooms, as well as seven bedrooms to lounge and a breathtaking view.
If you’ve had enough of dancing or staring out the windows, the building boasts a wine and cigar lounge, a conference room, a spa, gym, games room, squash court, cinema room, private garden, and not just one but two pools; the indoor measuring 62 feet and outdoor 60 feet.
And the restaurant? Not only is it private, but it also has Michelin-star chefs, so you’ll be getting some of the best food you’ve ever tasted.
Despite the jaw-drop-worthy price tag, real estate agent Ryan Serhant from ‘Sell It Like Serhant’ and ‘Million Dollar Listing New York thinks the value of the property is reasonable.
“The purchaser of this apartment is someone who is looking to diversify their assets. It’s someone who probably owns expensive art, probably has an expensive car collection and other things, and they want the best of the best,” Serhant noted.
Manhattan luxury broker, Donna Olshan, views the penthouse as ‘a fantasy price’.
A ‘fantasy price’ to millionaires, and simply a pure ‘fantasy’ to most of us.
