Inside The $5.2 Million NYC Spread That Newsmax's Greg Kelly Just Bought

Newsmax anchor Greg Kelly and his wife, Judith Grey, paid $5.26 million in November for a 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom co-op in the upscale Lenox Hill section on the Upper East Side of NYC, per Upper East Site. New York City's Upper East Side is an iconic neighborhood situated between 59th and 96th Streets, with Central Park to the west and the East River to the east. 

At a time when many urban real estate markets are extremely competitive and selling for over the list price, Kelly was able to scoop up this luxury unit below the list price of $5.49 million. At 2,371 square feet, the unit nearly doubles the size of the space from their previous condo, per New York Post, which Grey owned at the time he and Kelly got married in November 2017. Now that they have a two-year-old daughter, one can only imagine that more space is needed, per Journalist Bio.

Carlton House is Greg Kelly's new home

The residence is located in the Carlton House, a fully restored 1950s building at 21 East 62st Street. The post-war building is close to the intersection with Madison Avenue, which houses some of the most luxurious ateliers and boutiques in New York City and is among the world's chicest shopping destinations. The building's amenities include a 24-hour doorman and concierge services, "lifestyle services" provided by Luxury Attache, a state-of-the-art fitness center, heated, indoor salt-water swimming pool, steam rooms, and more, according to StreetEasy. The monthly cost for these services is $8,772.

Acclaimed architectural firm Beyer Blinder Belle collaborated with the Katherine Newman Design Team, one of Architectural Digest's top 100 design firms, to transform the Carlton House into 68 luxury residences ranging from two to five bedrooms, per Corcoran. Some of the residences offer outdoor spaces with views of the Manhattan skyline and Central Park.

Open floor plan great room

The landmark building was a residential property when it was first built and was later converted into the Carleton House Hotel. The latest renovation was completed in 2014, per the architect's website. In addition to reconfiguring the interior layouts, the exterior façades were restored with complete window replacement allowing natural light to fill the residences while blocking all sounds from outside. All the residential floors received new luxury finishes and new HVAC systems. Isn't that exactly what every home buyer hopes to find in their new home? The design also included a new 10,000 square foot, 5-story single-family townhouse adjacent to the existing building and a spectacular two-story penthouse at the top of the building, which sold for $52 million per Extell Development Company, which developed the property.

Greg Kelly's unit opens to a 32x16 foot great room, according to the floor plan seen on the Zillow listing. Large windows and a high, coffered ceiling add to the sense of an airy space. A galley-style, state-of-the-art chef's kitchen features custom wood and lacquered white cabinetry, polished stone countertops, Miele appliances, and Dornbracht fixtures, per StreetEasy.

Master bedroom with custom closets and spa-like bathroom

The master suite features custom closets and a luxurious bathroom with a custom double vanity in ebonized ribbon Mahogany and polished marble countertops, a large soaking tub, and a separate glass-enclosed shower. There are two additional bedrooms, both with en-suite quartzite and marble bathrooms.

The Upper East Side is a walker's paradise and is considered to be one of the most walkable neighborhoods, per Walkscore, which gives this neighborhood a 99 walk score rating. The Carlton House is just one block from Central Park between Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue.

In August, a 6-bedroom, 7.5 bathroom Carlton House residence of approximately 9,742 sq. ft. sold for $25.18 million. Another three-bedroom, 3.5 bathroom residence of similar size to Kelly's is currently for sale in the same building for $9.5 million, according to the listing. This really leads you to believe that Kelly and Grey got a great deal.
