Now that Grey’s Anatomy and The Office are over for the season, I am able to watch my other Thursday night shows, like Selling New York on HGTV. I must admit, I find New York real estate to be fascinating! Has anyone ever read The Sky’s The Limit: Passion and Property in Manhattan? It is a non-fiction book about some of Manhattan’s most storied and priciest apartment buildings. I would highly recommend it! Last Thursday, Selling New York featured a building that the CORE Group is marketing, 141 Fifth Avenue. It is an historic building whose cupola penthouse has been on the market for a while now. The property is selling for $12 million.
Wouldn’t it be spectacular if part of your apartment was housed in a cupola? The artist renderings are gorgeous, while the actual finished product has received mixed reviews. I have to admit that I am a bit confused by the toilet that is enclosed within the glass shower in the cupola, but aside from that, it seems like a fantastic place to call home.
I got a big kick out of the Circa Lighting Ring Lamps that were recreated for the artist-rendered virtual tour. Be sure to watch it! It is less than two minutes long and doesn’t have any sound, so it’s safe to watch at work.
If money were no object, would you be interested in this property?
