When it comes to luxury, New York is a city that spares no expense. From sport stadiums and restaurants to fashion boutiques and condos, the scale of the big apple’s rich and famous’ spending sprees is sometimes unintelligible – but there’s no doubt that these spectacular attractions make fine viewing for tourists!
If you’re considering visiting New York this year, then instead of taking the usual city excursion, why not embark on something a little more alternative, like a tour of the most luxurious apartments. Many of these apartments remain unsold, and are therefore open showrooms; not only are the views fantastic, but nearly all implement exciting design and architectural features. Let’s take a look at some of the most luxurious apartments for sale in New York this year!
Penthouse – 145 Hudson Street
With a whopping price tag of $48m – that’s $48,000,000 – this is surely one of the most expensive apartments up for grabs in the city. For that price, this penthouse comes with no less than eight rooms, four bedrooms, and four and a half bathrooms (whatever that means), as well as over 4,000ft of exterior balcony space. Although the view of the city is spectacular, it’s going to cost a few thousand dollars a year just to keep the windows clean – there’s literally loads of them – and there’s even a glass stair case worth over $700,000!
A Room With A View – 944 Fifth Avenue
If you thought our first luxury apartment was expensive, think again, as this fifth avenue extravaganza is on the market for $50,000,000! Offering 18 rooms, 7 bathrooms and 6 bedrooms, all situated across 5,000 square feet, this is certainly ‘white glove’ territory. Nothing else comes more exclusive than this apartment, taking up a whole floor while looking out across the New York skyline. The building itself was built in 1925, and there are over 25 windows from which to take in the city landscape, as well as a palazzo room in an Italian Renaissance style.
33rd Floor Condo – 50 Central Park South
Also costing $50m, this condo sits right at the top of the Ritz Carlton Hotel, and with 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, you’re paying for the location more than anything else. There are only 12 condos for sale here, and with views of Central Park, you can see why they’ve all been snapped up. The interior was designed Michael Smith, famous for his restoration work inside the White House, and there’s even a library which was designed by Coco Chanel! For those of us with a regular bookcase, however, Chanel’s design talents may be a bit out of our league. New York doesn’t have to be though; try and grab yourself a deal for the New Yeah at Cheapflights.
Penthouse – 157 West 57th Street
With 12 rooms, 6 bedrooms, 6 baths and ultra-exclusive neighbours, this penthouse offers seamless luxury of a royal standard. The cheapest penthouse in this building is $50,000,000, and even that has priced some buyers out of the market, so you can only imagine how much this one costs. With a staircase made partly from gold, an uninterrupted view of the city, your own private elevator, security and butler service, as well as a helicopter pad on the roof, you’ll have to splash out over $115,000,000 to lead this life of luxury!
