world's most expensive home

Central Park Tower in New York City is the tallest residential building in the world standing at 1,416 feet, and at the top sits the world’s most expensive private residence – The Penthouse at Central Park Tower. Covering 3 stories, the luxury home is currently listed on the market for $250,000,000.

The penthouse features over 17,000 sq. ft. of interior space with a 14,000 sq. ft. outdoor terrace. Located on Manhattan’s “Billionaires Row” close to the iconic Central Park, the penthouse features a private ballroom and a professional catering kitchen, along with all the other rooms and amenities you would expect to find in a high-specification home. But what really makes the property special is the incredible panoramic views of Central Park, midtown and downtown, and the waterways that surround the city – with vistas stretching into upstate New York.

Soaring 1,416 feet above New York City in the tallest residential tower on the planet, the penthouse at Central Park Tower lays claim to the title of being the highest residence—and having the highest terrace—in the world. This once-in-a-generation residence occupies the top three floors of the most significant building on Billionaires Row, spanning 17,545 sq. ft. of interior space with a glorious 1,433 sq. ft. outdoor escape.

With four exposures and unobstructed New York City views, the eye skips over the verdant expanse of Central Park, the pulsating lights of the Midtown and Downtown skylines, and the serene waterways that girdle Manhattan. The vistas from all rooms are so vast and far-reaching one can almost see the horizon bend.

Its unrivaled pair of baronial rooms–a 1,500 sf grand salon and a nearly 2,000 sf private ballroom–are truly empyrean, featuring glass curtain walls with the entire City as a backdrop and soaring 27-ft ceilings.

Each floor is a sanctuary unto itself, with private elevator vestibules and separate entry points. The lower level sits on the 129th floor and begins with a sprawling north-south gallery culminating in a sublime spiral staircase. A true work of art, the windowed staircase serves as a prism for natural light. Also on the lower level are the grand salon, a dining room, an observatory, a library, a media room, a serving kitchen with a breakfast/family room, and a pair of guest/staff bedrooms.

On the second level sit five bedroom suites, each one a temple of luxury and respite. The park-facing primary suite boasts a sitting room, a pair of dressing rooms and en-suite bathrooms. Each of the remaining bedrooms has ample closet space and en-suite bathrooms. There is also a bonus room for gaming/recreation.

The top level was designed for hosting grand gatherings and events. A Park-facing private ballroom provides access to a magnificent terrace—both are the highest on the planet! Additionally, there are two powder rooms, a coat room, a professional-grade catering kitchen with separate service entry, a private study, and room for a gym.
