NY Curbed reports that though Harlem has gotten increasingly expensive over the years, a bit of sticker shock still creeps in when we come across pricey apartments. A penthouse along Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Boulevard has made its way to the market with an $8.975 million asking price and while it’s steep, the condo just may warrant that amount.
According to the listing description, the five-bedroom home spans more than 5,800 square feet and includes more than six bathrooms. There are 11-foot ceilings throughout, huge windows with multiple exposures, a corner living room with a wood-burning fireplace, and a formal dining room. The expansive “kitchen lounge” features sleek cabinets, an island, four (!) Miele ovens, two dishwashers, and two refrigerators.
If you head down the main hall, you’ll eventually end up in the family/cinema room, where there is a 120-inch motorized retractable movie screen. Past that is a climate-controlled wine cellar that can hold 1,000 bottles (!!), a home gym, and a home office.
The master suite is bigger than some NYC apartments, spanning 800 square feet, with a wood-burning fireplace, a walk-in closet, windowed dressing room, and a marble bedecked master bathroom.
