432 Park Avenue: New York’s Most Expensive Penthouse Hits the Market

Located on the true Penthouse floor (96 of 96) of one the most elite and exclusive properties in the world, 432 Park Avenue, New York’s priciest listing is a wonder to behold. This veritable mansion-in-the-sky is among the most spectacular pieces of real estate on earth; it offers a staggering 8,255 square feet of interior space with breathtaking 360-degree panoramic views of New York, features first-class furnishings and finishes, and it is currently on the market for a cool $169 mil.

Homes like this seldom become available for sale anywhere in the world. Every inch of this architectural wonder is thoughtfully and artfully crafted to astonish all who enter. It is truly one-of-a-kind from the 12.5-foot ceilings to the 240 linear feet of glass offering breathtaking views of nearly every inch of Manhattan. Currently owned by billionaire Saudi real estate developer Fawaz Alhokair, this palatial estate is designed to satisfy every need of even the most discerning of ultra-high-end buyers.

“Real estate is one of the best investments you can make, as is fine art,” says listing agent Ryan Serhant, founder and CEO of SERHANT. “This penthouse is both – one of the only penthouses like it in the world, making it like a piece of rare, fine art.” And everything about the penthouse, from the layout to the views to the first-class luxury finishings, furniture, and artwork screams “work of art”.

432 Park Avenue was designed by Rafael Vinoly, and Los Angeles-based designer Andrew Cohen is responsible for the penthouse’s interiors. The layout is exquisitely crafted and features a 93-foot-long living and dining great room, six spacious bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, two powder rooms, a library, and much more. A private elevator opens to the East-facing great room which features a wood-burning fireplace and a stately formal dining area.

The eat-in kitchen offers sweeping views of Central Park and is equipped with ample marble floors, countertops, and backsplashes, white lacquer and natural oak cabinets, polished chrome fixtures from Dornbracht, and a massive island. There is also a North-facing breakfast bar, a butler’s pantry with a utility sink, and a suite of high-end appliances from Miele. Twin powder rooms serve the main living and dining spaces.

The primary suite is a marvel in its own right. It also offers breathtaking Central Park views and features a sitting room and couples’ walk-through dressing rooms leading to separate windowed bathrooms with slab marble walls, heated floors, custom wood cabinets, floating tubs with incredible views, and carved oval sinks. Each of the remaining five guest bedrooms offer breathtaking views, ample closet space, and a full en-suite bathroom.

The home is truly turnkey and the seller is including all the lavish art and furnishings in the sale. That includes designer furniture from the likes of Fendi, Bentley, and Hermes, a Jeff Koons “Popeye” balloon statue, a grand piano, and a near never-ending list of additional first-rate appointments. All a buyer will have to do is grab the keys and immediately be in possession of one of the most opulent properties inside and out on the planet.

But of course, in addition to the penthouse, a buyer will have access to all of the on-site amenities that make 432 Park Avenue one of the most luxurious addresses in the world. That includes concierge and room service and 30,000 square feet of lifestyle amenities such as a private restaurant and lounge, a 75-foot indoor pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a yoga studio, sauna, steam, and massage rooms, an outdoor terrace, a screening room, conference and billiards rooms, a library, and a children’s playroom, and climate-controlled wine cellars.
