Like a lot of people I daydream how I would spend my money if I had a huge lottery win. Certainly a desirable residence would have to be right at the top of the list. Maybe if the prize was large enough I could own a home in the world’s most prestigious cities. One of the locations I would definitely consider is the ‘Big Apple’.
New York property has always been at a premium and therefore it is no surprise to find apartments in excess of $50 Million. Some of these dwellings are truly spectacular and designed for only the richest clientele. A great example is a fantastic duplex penthouse located at the top of the exclusive Baccarat Hotel & Residences 20 West 53rd Street (in the Midtown district of Manhattan).
One of the terms used far too frequently in the world of real estate is ‘absolutely fantastic’ however in this instance I feel it is warrantied because this pad is extraordinary. Impressively the apartment offers the discerning buyer around 8,000 square feet of luxurious accommodation. The level of décor is unrivalled and has been conceived by acclaimed interior designer Tony Ingrao. Only the finest materials have been used to create this modern masterpiece. For example the floors in the living area are made from solid ebony and the bathrooms are adorned with Siberian polished marble. Other features include a bespoke SieMatic kitchen (finished in walnut) and a lavish marble staircase (situated in the double-height galleried hallway). However the star of the show has to be the sensational views of Central Park, George Washington Bridge, Empire State and Chrysler buildings.
Not surprisingly this level of opulence come at a premium and this apartment is on the market for $60 million
