Inside Billionaire Bronfman's Fifth Ave. Penthouse, Asking $65M

New, 52 comments


After a month of waiting, the listing for the penthouse that belonged to the late billionaire Edgar Bronfman, Sr. finally went live with just a floorplan, and now we have interior images to go with it (h/t Real Estalker). The sprawling 16-room abode at 960 Fifth Avenue is being sold by the family of Bronfman, former chairman of the Seagram Co. and president of the World Jewish Congress, who died last December. It's listed for a whopping $65 million, and while the massive wraparound terrace elicited some praise when the floorplan was first revealed, the interior images are decidedly less impressive. The decor is dated (unsurprising, since Bronfman lived here for 40 years), but it's easy to see that the co-op's prewar details have been nicely maintained. In addition to the terrace—which is sadly not pictured—the place has four staff rooms, a library, 8.5 bathrooms, and five fireplaces. The floorplan also shows a built-in safe and two cedar walk-in closets.
