HBO’s critically acclaimed series Succession is one of my favorite shows. If you haven’t seen it before, the show centers on the Roy family, the owners of Waystar Royco, a global media and entertainment conglomerate, who are fighting for control of the company in the wake of their father’s declining health. It gives us a glimpse into the lives of the super-rich and powerful, a world that most of us will never know of.
The show is filmed mostly in New York City, where the rival factions of the lead family live in opulent penthouses on either side of Central Park. Kendall Roy’s TV home is a three-level penthouse at the top of the tallest tower north of 72nd Street, a gorgeous five-bedroom, 5,500-square-foot home. And according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com, Kendall’s place can now be yours, as it’s listed for sale for a $29 million.
First listed for $33 million last year, this sprawling five-bedroom, 5,508-square-foot triplex overlooks Central Park and boasts floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic views of the NYC skyline. It features a luxe but minimalist contemporary aesthetic, with bright white walls, lots of glass, and gold trim. A stunning spiral staircase connects the three levels, which feature soaring 13-foot ceilings.
Since climbing stairs is for peasants, there’s a private, glass-walled elevator to traversing the unique and beautiful space. A total of 3,500 additional square feet of outdoor space include a fabulous rooftop terrace with gas fireplace, outdoor seating, and spectacular city and park views, plus multiple smaller terraces. Carefully chosen design elements include gilded chandeliers and natural brass fixtures. The building was developed and designed by Joe McMillan’s DDG in 2019.
The primary suite features its own loggia terrace, a gas fireplace, and a luxurious bathroom with a rain shower, heated tile floors, and marble counters as well as a spacious dressing room. A spectacular set-up for entertaining, the home features an open floor plan that connects of a living room, dining room and great room with a gas fireplace, surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows and access to dramatic set-back terraces.
A second living room offers a wet bar. The custom-designed Molteni & C Dada kitchen features a massive island, marble countertops, and a full suite of top-of-the-line Gaggenau appliances. A den offers additional lounging space or room for a home office. The building provides additional amenities, including a fitness studio, basketball court, soccer pitch, playroom, game room, and lounge with a catering kitchen and large dining area, plus a concierge and doorman.
The estate is located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in the Carnegie Hill neighborhood. Prized for its “neighborhood feel” and good schools, including some of the most coveted public schools in New York City, it borders Central Park and is only a quick subway or taxi ride from everything Manhattan has to offer. Celebrities who have called the area home include Bette Midler, Katie Couric and Woody Allen.
The listing is held by Michael Gordon at Corcoran Group. So if you’re ready to live like a Roy, you can check out their website for more information on the property.
