Word has it that house prices in New York City may be leveling out, but one thing remains the same, the uppermost echelon of real estate all in Manhattan. I mean, Manhattan hosts the famous Wall Street, neon-lit Times Square and the many Broadway theaters. Not to forget, the amazing indoor arena, Madison Square Garden and the have-it-all Chinatown. So, that comes as a no-brainer!
But, it is almost impossible to find a suitable condo in Manhattan because each one is ‘perfecto’ and is nothing close to an average size budget! So, start saving your pocket change now because these penthouses are nothing close to a few millions but we are talking 60, 70 or even 100 million USD…
See for yourself:
One Madison, which is nearly 7,600 sq. ft. is a luxury spectacular manhattan penthouse located at 23 East 22 Street and is the ”crowning jewel” as one of the tallest residential towers in downtown Manhattan. The penthouse offers a cinematic 360-degree watch of the larger New York City, and the Madison Square Park across. One Madison features a Master Suite, a doorman, a private club for residents only, lounge, indoor pool, fitness center and a parlor room. It was put on the market by billionaire Rupert Murdoch last April and it goes for $72 million….
Then we have the the San Remo once owned by Demi Moore and many other celebrities, which is the first twin-towered building to rise in New York. ”The floating mansion” has a double-height foyer, and wraparound terraces with 17 rooms, a library, entertainment and breakfast room and a guest loft to top it all. $75 million it is!
The Atelier is another beautiful condo. The 45th floor has nine units and it goes for $ 85million, and the buyer can turn the entire floor into a single residence. To sweeten the deal, you get a bonus yacht worth $1 million with 5 years of pre-paid docking fees, one convertible and one hardtop Rolls Royce Phantom, dinner for two every week at Daniels’ for one year, season-long tickets at the courtside to watch the Brooklyn Nets, a summer rental mansion at Hamptons with services from a butler and sous-chef for one year. What more can you ask for?
Listed for $100 million, is the 8000 sq. ft. CitySpire which has 6 bedrooms, 9 baths, a wine cellar, separate maid quarters plus an additional 3,000 sq. ft. of exterior space, a 24 hr doorman and concierge, indoor pool, health club, valet parking and a private elevator straight up to the penthouse. How can I forget, this is the highest terraced residence in US with 360 degree panoramic views at Central Park, Empire State and the whole of Manhattan.
Last on the list is the three townhouse combo at 12-16 East 62nd Street going for $120 million. The home has 11 terraces, several bedrooms and it occupies an astonishing 30, 581 sq. ft. of space. Is this a home or a palace?
Other honorable luxurious penthouses in Manhattan include the new One 57 and Puck Penthouse 1 for $58.5 million, the Walker Tower and San Pierre for $70 million, among others. Jaw dropping apartments but worth every penny! You definitely need to start sacrificing tonnes of your living expenses for an excellent apartment in the future…
