If you have $63 million lying around, then this 16 bedroom triplex in New York can be all yours! In January of 2015, it was listed on the market at half its original price. That's right, it originally sold for $125 million and some lucky billionaire paid for that and its five fireplaces, six bathrooms, 23-foot ceilings, and a partridge in a pear tree.
Near New York City's Central Park sits One57, a luxury building on 57th street. The Winter Garden unit may not be on the top floor but it still holds one of the most beautiful (and unobstructed) views of Central Park in the city. The unit has a pet grooming room, a yoga studio, 13,550 sq. ft., and a ballroom that can hold up to 200 friends and family. Because one thing is for sure, if you have this much money, suddenly all your friends and family will be coming out of the woodwork.
If you thought a $1 million dollar apartment was a lot, imagine being able to afford a $100 million apartment. That is the life of the millionaire who lives in City Spire's penthouse in New York. It's 8,000 sq. ft., has a 20-guest dining room, and its own elevator. Well, it better have its own elevator. Nobody wants to have to share with the poor common renters in the $80 million apartments on the other floors.
Located between Circular Quay and the Botanical Gardens and overlooking Sydney's Harbor Bridge and Opera House, is this harbor front penthouse that has its own private elevator lobby (again with the private elevators), a wine cellar, pool table room, and lots and lots of hardwood. Because if you own this entire place by yourself, you're going to want to slide across the rooms in your socks. Trust us.
At the bottom of the photograph sits the Opus in Hong Kong-- home to a penthouse that sold for $60 million. Each floor has a private pool and each unit takes up an entire floor. That means you get an entire floor and pool to yourself. It has a view of lush greenery and the city. With a view like this you literally never need to leave home. Literally.
Welcome to Miami! On the 40th floor of the Seati Tower sits a $27 million dollar penthouse complete with 4 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, and gorgeous views of the Atlantic Ocean. Why they have more bathrooms than bedrooms, I'm not sure. But when you have a private terrace, pool, and hot tub in one of the hottest cities in America, you don't ask questions.
If you think there is something a little funny about this penthouse, that may be because comedian Joan Rivers used to own it. It had a net worth of $50 million, although it's listing price is $29.5 million. It has a Neo-French classical look, four bedrooms, two fireplaces, 23-foot ceilings, and a gorgeous two story gallery. The only thing missing is that enormous bookcase from Beauty and the Beast. And with it being so close to New York's 5th Avenue, you're bound to run into some beauties along your commute.
It's true the grass, and trees, are greener on the other side! At least that is the case in British luxury property developer Nick Candy's specially designed living room in London. He and his brother Christian Candy designed the 86 unit, $1.8 billion building known as One Hyde Park. Units there range from $32 million to $327 million, or at least that's what a Ukrainian billionaire paid to combine two units. No word yet on whether any of its inhabitants have ever been behind on rent.
Overlooking San Francisco's Bay Bridge is this five bedroom penthouse with a butler's pantry, access to a private rooftop, and eight, yes eight, terraces. The building itself has a climbing wall, 75-foot lap pool, and an outdoor screen and club lounge. You know, in case you want to rest after training for your triathlon, apparently.
If you're a young Russian billionaire named Ekaterina Rybolovlev, then this is probably your view every night. At least it is for the real life, 25-year-old Ekaterina Rybolovlev, who lives in 15 Central Park West. The four bedroom penthouse has beautiful views of Manhattan and comes with marble flooring, Brazilian rosewood, and the ability to look down on the commoners below you.
Chandelier ceilings, polished glass tabletops, marble floors, a lunch room, and a coffee lounge are included in this Brazilian penthouse. It also has a wood-burning fireplace (as opposed to those cheesy fire and ice things) and a white lacquer grand piano. In other words, if you have a speck of dirt on you when walking into this $50 million white on white immaculate establishment, you better bring some bleach stain remover wipes.
For only about $5.9 million (hey, the others were much more expensive) you too could own this swanky Montreal apartment. It's actually located in a 1920s building with rich artwork that screams The Great Gatsby. It has a semi-private elevator (hey, you have to pay extra if you want your own elevator these days), a semi-Olympic pool (for the semi-athlete), oak paneling, original moldings, and a solarium. Since that might be the only way you see the sun if you never leave your mini-mansion apartment.
This $387M five-story penthouse boasts a private waterslide, infinity pool, 360-degree views over the sea, and 35,500 sq.ft. space a top Monaco's tallest building, the Tour Odean. It's one of the most expensive properties in the world. So if you win the lottery, you still probably don't have a chance of purchasing this insanely priced place.
Feast your eyes on the two towers of the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Dubai. People have paid as much as $3,200 a square foot for one of the rooms in this residency. One unit is estimated at $30 million, while most all units have some sort of view of the Arabian Gulf. This luxury building also includes a three-story private beach club and adjacent yacht marina where renters can dock their floating mansions as well.
Considered the tallest residence in Singapore, this super penthouse is over 21,000 square feet,,has a roof garden, and 3 stories. A three story penthouse! That way you can rent out the other stories to your friends, family, barista, hair stylist, and random strangers, just so you all can actually afford its $47 million price tag. Like a modern day Brady Bunch, if you will.
