Hey, celebrities on the real estate hunt, here's a penthouse rental that has already been tested for you by not one, not two, but three celebrities: PH D at 40 Central Park South. The 1,985-square-foot duplex has, at different times, been home to Lance Armstrong, Liza Minnelli, and Broadway director/choreographer/writer/dancer Michael Bennett, the Post tells us. The apartment is about to (on April 8) come back onto the market for $22,000/month.
The listing photos are?not among the best we've seen, so let's take a look at the spread via the brokerbabble, with its very subtle pitch to the famous folk:
The entrance foyer leads to a dramatic sunken living room with wood-burning fireplace and all glass overlooking Central Park. On either side of this great room are the first of two enormous bedrooms and a large formal dining room. Off of the dining room (which has a terrace off of it) , there is a granite chef's kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances and a washer dryer. Up a gracious Hollywood staircase, a private master suite awaits you, featuring another wood-burning fireplace and fabulous views, a large marble bathroom with deep soaking and whirlpool tub and a huge walk-in closet. On both sides of the bedroom are enormous terraces, a total of approximately 750 square feet. This home is for the person seeking the ultimate in both celebrity and privacy. And here's the floorplan:
