"Carpe diem," says the listing for this more than 15,000-square-foot triplex penthouse atop the Carl Fischer building, which the brokerbabble also calls "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity." Of course, seizing the day doesn't come cheap: the eight-bedroom apartment is asking $29.5 million.
Granted, it is a rather pretty home, with a landscaped terrace that might make you forget you're in New York City at all. There's also a laundry list of slightly ridiculous amenities, including two guest apartments, 90 (?!?) windows, and "a billiard room, library, and personal yoga studio." (Teacher not included, presumably.)
The building itself is probably best-known for the giant mural covering one of its sides, advertising the Carl Fischer music publishing firm (hence the moniker); it was also once home to songstress Norah Jones, before she picked up and moved to Brooklyn.
