A combination triplex penthouse at the Grand Millennium on Broadway and West 67th Street has just dropped onto the market for an eye-popping $42 million. Unlike several pricey combinations that have been listed recently, this 8,100-square-foot abode needs no work. The original three units have been turned into one 16-room home with two private terraces designed by the landscape architects at Thomas Balsley Associates. Inside, there are several "free-floating" features, lots of dark wood and marble, and a fancy bronze and fibre-optic ceiling.
Some design highlights from the brokerbabble: a master bath with "25 slabs of onyx with his/her sides, a huge two person all-glass enclosed shower with great northern views;" one of the terraces has a "one-of-a-kind elevated planter system and immense electronic sliding doors one of which was brought up 33 stories to the home via crane;" and an entertaining area with "a free-floating, four-sided bronze and glass fireplace, stone and wood bar, and drop down movie screen with hidden speakers and black-out shades." Free-floating is something of a theme, as there's also a "free-floating" steel and ebony staircase and a "free-floating double stone desk" in the study.
