Blockbuster-watchers got a sneak peek before the weekend, but now it's here: the city's most expensive home is officially, indubitably on the market. As expected, it's a combination of three penthouses atop the Ritz-Carlton on West Street in Battery Park Citydubbed The Penthouse Collection by
reality TV star broker Ryan Serhant at Nestseekersthat is asking a mind-bending $118,500,000. Once combined, the three separate apartments on the 39th and 40th floors would create a single duplex totaling 15,434 square feet (not including the four terraces and their 2,200 square feet), "with the potential for 12 or more bedrooms, 15 or more bathrooms, 20 foot ceilings, and at least three kitchens." The berserk combo is made up of one 3BR/5BA, one 4BR/5BA (owned by financier Randall Yanker and previously listed for $23 million), and one 5BR/5.5BA (listed last year by owner Gary Segal, who also owns the 3BR, for a mere $56.5 million). So this triple combo is worth more than the sum of its partsor at least, that's what the sellers (and Serhant) are hoping.
What lavish New York City listing, pray tell, was just ousted from its "most expensive" roost? This over-the-top Upper East Side townhouse, owned and renovated to the extreme by Vincent and Teresa Violathe former being the owner of the Florida Panthers hockey teamwhich wants $114M.
Now, there are other $100 million-ish offerings scattered across the city, and should any of them sell, that would obliterate the single-home sales record set in late 2011 when Russian fertilizer magnate Dmitry Rybolovlev paid $88 million for 15 Central Park West's penthouse.
