Luxury Real Estate: Your hunch paid off about that "technology" company everyone else thought was going the way of the Oregon Trail. Now you're kicking back, listening to your iPod trying to decide what to do with that big wad of cash. You could buy your own island or buy the company you used to work for (wouldn't that be the icing on the cake?). Real estate is a solid investment with few exceptions, and this property offered by Brown Harris Stevens Residential Sales isn't one of them. For a cool $70 million you could call New York's ultimate penthouse home.
While The Pierre is recognized worldwide as the most esteemed address for rich New Yorkers, the penthouse occupying the top three floors is the crème de la crème of extreme luxury. Looking around at the Versailles-patterned oak floors, Byzantine-style ceramic tiles, black marble staircase, 18th-century wood paneling, and personal gym you'll have a hard time remembering that tiny one-room efficiency you shared with Bonkers, your overweight tabby.
Need we mention that one level of this dazzling penthouse was once the hotel's ballroom? Converted into a grand salon with 23-foot ceilings, you'll have a front row seat to the City's best views. Should you desire anything while luxuriating in your opulent home, just call down to the hotel's concierge, housekeeping staff, or valet and room service. Life doesn't get better than this.
