NYC mega realtor Ryan Serhant (from Million Dollar Listing New York) has just listed the most expensive penthouse in Manhattan — and it could be yours for a cool $196 million.
Located on the 96th floor of 432 Park Avenue, the world’s most celebrated ultra-luxury tower, this one-of-a-kind penthouse is unlike any other in the world, offering jaw-dropping views of the city from atop the third-tallest residential building in the world.
The 8,255-square-foot penthouse boasts 6 bedrooms, 7 full bathrooms, and 2 powder rooms. Unique features include a 93-foot-long living and dining great-room, 240 linear feet of glass with 360-degree views of Manhattan and Central Park through 24 massive 10′ × 10′ windows, and soaring 12.5 feet ceilings.
A private elevator landing opens into a sweeping east-facing great room with a wood-burning fireplace and a formal dining area. The sublime eat-in kitchen has the most stunning views of Central Park, and is equipped with marble floors, countertops, and backsplashes, white lacquer and natural oak cabinets, polished chrome fixtures from Dornbracht, a massive island, a north-facing breakfast bar, a butler’s pantry with a utility sink, and a suite of Miele appliances.
The primary suite is a sanctuary corner retreat with Central Park views, a sitting room, and couples’ walk-through dressing rooms that lead to separate windowed bathrooms with slab marble walls, radiant heated floors, custom wood cabinets, floating tubs with amazing views, and carved oval sinks. The remaining five bedrooms aren’t too shabby either.
What’s more, the penthouse’s furnished with pieces from Hermès, Fendi and Bentley, a custom piano that has a small brass plate printed with “Penthouse 96” on its side, and sought-after artworks on display. Everything is included in the $169 Million asking price.
Speaking of price, Saudi retail and real estate billionaire Fawaz Alhokair purchased the unit for $87.7 million back in 2016, according to property records and reports at the time. But he never actually lived in his new stratospheric digs, so you’re getting a “brand new” place really.
If this penthouse sells for its asking price, it will be the second-most expensive real estate sale in New York City history. And Alhokair will walk away with a substantial profit.
Ryan Serhant, founder and CEO of eponymous brokerage Serhant, tells the Post: “It’s a very unique time in the world right now. It’s unique for real estate, and it’s unique for the wealthy. They are looking to diversify their cash and holdings. Real estate is an incredible investment, whether you use it or not, because it’s a hedge against inflation.”
