It’s time to revisit the most expensive residential properties for sale in New York. Despite word that prices in the city may be leveling out, there’s no indication of that in the uppermost echelon of real estate, where an enormous penthouse $120 million, and properties are being sold alongside perks like not one, but two free Rolls Royce Phantoms, special temperature-controlled vaults for storing furs, and walls covered in Hermès leather.
We last took stock of the top end of inventory in March, and this go-round, a few stalwarts have been taken off the market (say goodbye to the Walker Tower penthouse, and the Baccarat penthouse), allowing in plenty of fresh picks. And thanks to the fact that there are so many listings asking an even $50 million, we’ve bumped the number up to 30 instead of 25. The lower end of the list this year falls right in between 2014 ($44 million) and 2015 ($55 million), but one thing remains the same: the properties are all in Manhattan, and they’re all very expensive.
Located on the top floors of the 46-story Trump SoHo New York, these duplex and two-bedroom New York City penthouse suites command expansive city views from their floor-to-ceiling windows, and offer additional hotel services and amenities. Graciously proportioned with thoughtful layouts, the penthouse suites’ views include the Hudson River, midtown Manhattan, the Empire State Building, downtown or the East River bridges.
Open floor plans enhance the spaciousness and residential ambiance with living room and dining areas that are perfect for entertaining or hosting small business gatherings.
Most penthouses provide spacious living areas between bedrooms for guests’ privacy. Rich leather Fendi Casa headboards and additional accent pieces enhance the residential feel of the suites. Marble bathrooms, some with floating soaking tubs, add to the luxe environment.
