Joan Rivers’ opulent penthouse apartment is on the market again for the asking price of 29.5 million, higher than the previous listing price of around 25 million. But, there are comparables clustered all around her, (but I bet they don’t look like this) so she is not off on her asking price and probably not in a hurry to sell the penthouse with the increased price.
According to Forbes, Joan Rivers has a personal net worth of 290 million dollars, while her daughter Melissa has a net worth of 8 million.
Built in the 1900s by famous architect, Horace Trumbauer, in French Classic style. This is the penthouse perched high on top of the finest limestone-sheathed mansion.
If you have dollars maybe you want to use them on this gilded lovely. Per the Real Estalker, the maintenance on this penthouse beauty is around a quarter-million dollars a year.
This penthouse apartment has 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. A Private elevator leads to the entry hall. Super reception rooms with soaring 23 foot ceilings and elegant parquet-de-Versallis flooring. Joan Rivers must have done a lot of entertaining in the penthouse over the years, and she certainly has done a lot of entertaining her fans over the years too. Wonder where she is going if she sells this gold-gilded opulent penthouse. Reports are she has another home in Connecticut, but wants to move closer to her daughter in California.
The lucky listing agent of this luxurious lovely is Prudential Douglas Elliman. What is going on here? Reports are that the original details were restored by a museum-trained artisans. I am amazed at the bow window sitting area above and amazed at this whole room, I am speechless. It is quite something to behold.
Formal dining room does not disappoint. It’s as ornate as the rest of the mansion, but with lower ceilings, in 18th century mirrored panels and gilding. The dining room and library each contain a wood burning fireplace. I have just never imagined such opulence before. It’s just not my taste, but yet..I love it! Who knew Joan Rivers was such a Manhattan Madam, nasty mouth and all.
More fireplaces reportedly marble, cloud painted sky ceilings. This penthouse has Central Park views with floor to ceiling windows, two terraces and is just steps to 5th Avenue.
The round ceiling is amazing. I think before this opulent penthouse is sold that an epic movie should be filmed here.
Joan Rivers is probably doing a lot of advertising about her penthouse for sale.
I have enjoyed doing this post more than most. A house quote by Joan Rivers is “I told my mother-in-law that my house was her house, and she said, ‘Get the hell off my property.”
UPDATE Thursday, September 04, 2014: My heart is broken over the news of Joan Rivers passing today. I will miss her dearly as will millions of her fans.
