Park Avenue pads like this one don’t come along every day: a massive duplex spanning the 36th and 37th floors of 515 Park Avenue, the Zeckendorfs’ überpricey Midtown condo, dropped onto the market today with an eye-popping ask of $35 million.
Though it has just four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, the apartment comes with the requisite laundry list of high-end features and fixtures: private elevator, wood-burning fireplaces, a kitted-out chef’s kitchen, onyx-covered en-suite bathrooms for every bedroom, several walk-in closets, and ridiculously beautiful Central Park views. Oh, and this, per the listing:
There is a lovely large guest studio apartment overlooking Park Avenue on the second floor which comes with this residence along with two storage rooms and a wine cellar.
Because of course it comes with a guest studio apartment.
The palatial home is owned by socialite Sheila Rosenblum, who originally purchased the home with her now-estranged husband Daniel back in 2000, when the building first launched. The couple listed the place in 2011 for $31 million—back then, it was called a “chateau in the sky”—but having gotten no takers, it switched hands, with husband giving the pad to wife for a mere $3.5 million in 2013.
Sheila has since redone the place in the “French Moderne” style (according the Luxury Listings NYC), and perhaps that’ll be the thing that finally entices a buyer—though with its $35 million price tag and estimated monthly taxes/common charges exceeding $22,000, who knows?
