Built in 1927, the limestone-clad Sutton Place building was designed by famed NYC architect Rosario Candela, and regarded one of Manhattan’s most exclusive addresses, beloved by financial titans, celebs and media barons. Going on sale for an estimated $45M, this 6,600-square-foot, 12-room mansion-in-the sky, spans across the entire top floor and roof of the 14-story Sutton Place.
Listed by fashion designer and consummate house-flipper Lisa Perry and her billionaire hedge-fund husband, Richard C. Perry, this penthouse is characterised by a highly diverse collection of exclusive art pieces, wrap-around outdoor terraces with incredible views of the cantilevered Queensboro Bridge and East River, and a vast array of floor-to-ceiling windows which flood the home with an abundance of natural light.
Once the home of philanthropist Janet Annenberg Hooker, and fashion designer Bill Blass, the penthouse has since undergone an exhaustive renovation, by the Perrys, in an effort to re-configure two separate wings for day living and entertainment purposes. Boasting two private elevators, a private gallery-like foyer, a 34-by-22-foot living room, a skylight-lit corridor, private study, cozy den, dual dressing rooms, and an industrial-grade kitchen with stainless-steel twin islands, stainless steel-faced cabinets and an enormous Viking gas range – the Sutton Place penthouse will come complete with all its pop-art artwork, fixtures and funky furniture, alongside a meticulously curated selection of 60’s inspired clothing in the master closet.
Following the sale of their $9.1M Palm Beach spread, the Sutton Place penthouse is expected to be the couple’s next big “flip”, leaving everything to the new owners except their flashy-green Jeff Koons diamond sculpture which lies on deck.
