Fancy A New York Penthouse?

IF ONE luxury New York flat is not enough for you, it is now possible to buy three and join them together in a mega-penthouse.

A trio of owners have put their neighbouring flats in an exclusive building on the market at the same time, creating the potential for a luxury 12 bedroom property worth £69m - the highest asking price for any downtime home in the city.

However, that still pales into comparison next to the £140m price tag attached to a flat which sold in London's One Hyde Park earlier this year.

The Battery Park City penthouse, comprising the top two floors of Manhattan's Ritz-Carlton building, would have a combined floor space of 15,434 square feet, and feature views of the Statue of Liberty, One World Trade Center and the Empire State Building.

Sitting 40 floors high, one of the three properties boasts five bedrooms and two terraces with views of Manhattan and the surrounding waters.

The second is a three bedroom flat, while the third has four bedrooms and five bathrooms.

Ryan Serhant, the estate agent overseeing the sale, said: "The combination of these homes, produces a penthouse unlike any other in the world.

"It has the potential for 12 or more bedrooms, 15 or more bathrooms, 20 foot ceilings and at least three kitchens - all complimented with multiple living and entertaining areas throughout the home.

"This is the rare prospect to create a bespoke home unrivalled by any other.

"Combining these three Penthouse homes will create one of the largest single family residences on the island of Manhattan.

"With sprawling 360 degree views, this will be a trophy to enjoy for the ages located between the iconic Statue of Liberty and the new World Trade Center, the most highly anticipated retail and commercial centre in the United States."
