Kendall Roy’s ‘Succession’ penthouse is on the market for a cool $29 million
Most of us have dreamed of living in New York City at some point or another. For some, that dream is sprinkled with visions of Carrie Bradshaw’s infamous Brownstone on the Upper East Side… for others, Kendall Roy’s three-level penthouse at the top of the tallest tower north of 72nd Street is the end goal.
Overlooking Central Park, the apartment features a luxe but minimalist contemporary aesthetic, with bright white walls, lots of glass, and gold trim dominating the interiors. An imposing spiral staircase connects the three levels, which feature impressive 13-foot ceilings, along with a private, glass-walled elevator that offers unparalleled views of the cityscape below.
The apartment also comes with a total of 3,500 additional square feet of outdoor space – ranging from a stunning rooftop terrace with gas fireplace, outdoor seating, and spectacular city and park views, to multiple smaller terraces (can one ever have too many terraces!?).
Inside, carefully chosen design elements include gilded chandeliers and natural brass fixtures… the kind that even Logan would approve of. Designed by Joe McMillan’s DDG, the building was originally developed back in 2019, just one year after the first season of the critically acclaimed HBO show was released.
The primary suite has its own loggia terrace (a covered outdoor space which is closed off with a glass partition), a gas fireplace, and a luxurious bathroom with a rain shower, heated tile floors, and marble counters as well as a spacious dressing room.
The living/dining room is open-plan and has a spectacular set-up for entertaining guests. Surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows and access to dramatic set-back terraces, this room also has its own gas fireplace for keeping warm in the colder months. A second living room offers a wet bar, while the custom-designed Molteni & C Dada kitchen features a massive island, marble countertops, and a full suite of top-of-the-line Gaggenau appliances.
Further lounging space can be found in the den, which could be converted into a home office should the need arise. Additional building amenities range from a fitness studio to a basketball court, soccer pitch, playroom, game room, and a lounge with a catering kitchen and large dining area. The building also has its own concierge and doorman, naturally.
Located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in the Carnegie Hill neighbourhood, the area is dominated by upscale residential space and several prominent museums, including the world-famous Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Guggenheim Museum. Prized for its “neighbourhood feel” and good schools, including some of the most coveted public schools in New York City, it borders Central Park and is only a quick subway or taxi ride from everything Manhattan has to offer. Celebrities who have called the area home include Bette Midler, Katie Couric and Woody Allen.
Currently on the market for $29 million, the listing is held by Michael Gordon at Corcoran Group, but you can take a closer look inside this incredible home in our gallery below.
