Step Inside The Breathtaking Penthouse That's NYC's Priciest Home Right Now

A rare New York penthouse has recently opened up for sale again after being off market for a little over a month, previously listed at $169 million, according to Zillow property records. It was originally listed in July of 2021, but removed in late May of this year. The New York Post states that this listing is the most expensive in all of New York City, which is fitting, since it's located on Billionaires' Row.

Fawaz Alhokair, the billionaire owner/seller, purchased the Park Ave penthouse in 2015 for $87.7 million. While real estate sites are currently listing the apartment as off-market, that's due to the elite nature of the property. The new brokers, who previously worked for Douglas Elliman, have decided to price the property upon request. With the high price point acting as a deterrent to potential buyers, they want the stunning apartment to shine for itself, as opposed to being outshined by the asking price.

Stunning Central Park views

The high-priced highrise is located in Billionaires' Row, which is located from Columbus Circle to Park Avenue, according to StreetEasy. The residential buildings along the row are identifiable not just by their luxurious amenities, but by how tall they are, which is actually a point of controversy — residents in the literal shadows of these buildings dislike how much light they block out.

Regardless of the controversy, the next owner of this ultra-expensive penthouse will enjoy stunning views of Central Park from their kitchen window, notes the Zillow listing. Located on the 96th floor of 432 Park Avenue, the apartment is a total of 8,255 square feet. The building itself is 1,396 feet tall. While there are plenty of luxurious additions in the apartment itself, the apartment offers residents plenty of amenities, including room service, a wine cellar, office suites, storage, and round-the-clock staff. There are also recreational facilities, including a children's playroom, library, fitness center, indoor pool, yoga studio, sauna room, steam room, massage room, screening room/theater, conference and billiard rooms, and a private restaurant.

Inside the luxurious penthouse proper

According to the floor plan provided by Zillow, the penthouse is accessed by a private elevator that opens out directly into the large living room, which connects to the dining room and library in an open floor plan that's a total of 93 feet long. The living room overlooks Park Avenue, the library/den overlooks 56th Street, and the dining room overlooks Central Park.

The elevator sits in the center of the long and open room, and the outside designed in gold, looking more like a statement art piece as opposed to a clunky piece of machinery. The large living room has light wood floors with a chevron pattern, basic white walls, and a feature wall with terracotta colored tiles that separates it from the library. There is a fireplace on that wall as well, offering priceless city views next to the comfort of a roaring fire. The dining room is quite thin, but makes up for that in how long it is. A statement, modern style light fixture hangs down in the middle of the room, providing light amongst the multiple windows.

More details about the luxe listing

The super luxurious penthouse has a total of six bedrooms and nine bathrooms, according to Zillow. A door in the dining room opens out to a hallway, with one of those bathrooms immediately on the right. The hallway leads into the kitchen, which has gray marble floors, white walls, Central Park views, white marble countertops, oak cabinets, Miele appliances, and chrome hardware. There is also a breakfast bar installed in one window, as well as room for a small informal dining area.

The primary bedroom is a corner unit that has views of both Central Park and Madison Avenue. The floors are a light wood color with white walls, which further reflect the plethora of natural light let in by the windows. There is a walk-in closet right next to the bedroom door, which leads into the private en suite. A large floating tub sits in front of a Central Park facing window. There's also a large, marble walk-in shower, with the same marble carrying through the floors and walls.
