If you’re a billionaire in search of a new pad, you just got (yet another) wonderful option!
The penthouses at 20 East End Avenue have just hit the market for a combined total of $62 million (penthouse A is $35 million and penthouse B is $27 million). From the rendering images, they both look pretty, pretty nice (not totally surprising considering both the interior and exterior of the building was designed by starchitect Robert Stern, who also designed 15 Central Park West, 18 Gramercy Park and 520 Park Avenue).
Both penthouses feature spectacular views of the East River, as well as a library, a family room, five bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms. Penthouse A, which is slightly on a higher floor, has over 6,000 square feet of interior space and an additional 4,500+ square feet of outdoor space on the private terraces (there are four of them, plus a roof deck with “outdoor rooms”). Penthouse B has slightly more interior space at 6,300 square feet, but only 300 square feet of outside space. How completely unacceptable. If you feel like socializing, the building also offers a billiards room, a wine cellar that can fit 8,000 bottles, a children’s game room, a fitness center and spa, a sauna and a bike storage area.
“20 East End Avenue is an extraordinary building and these penthouses are two of the most unique homes on the market,” said Pamela Liebman, president and CEO of Corcoran. We aren’t sure if “unique” is the right word to use here, considering they don’t sound wholly different from other places on the market in this price range, but at least she didn’t try to call them hip.
