If you saw a real estate listing for a penthouse apartment facing Central Park—with a wrap-around terrace featuring three exposures—in a grand old building on one of the best blocks of New York’s tony upper westside, would you expect the interior to look like an adobe casita somewhere in New Mexico?
Well, there’s a sky-high casita available—for $16-million. Don Imus just put his Manhattan digs on the market. Brown Harris Stevens has the listing.
The listing reads, “This remarkably intimate and sophisticated apartment, with its amazing terrace and views, is the perfect adaptation of a grand space to very personal and exceptional taste rarely seen in New York.”
My translation, “This small, yet very expensive, 2 bedroom condo has a classic terrace going for it. But, at $7,505 per month, it’s a perfect example of high monthly carrying costs for a place that will require a total gut. Rarely seen in New York is this kind of design oddness.”
I hope at the open house they offer Margaritas.
